Lunch Report: Kent 324-1 v New Zealanders
Lunch on the second day of three (Kent won toss)
No play was possible before lunch here today because of rain, although an inspection was due to be taken shortly before the start of the scheduled interval in case something could be done to get in some play before another expected band of heavy rain moved in over the St Lawrence Ground this afternoon.
It meant Rob Key, the Kent captain was denied the chance to add to his overnight 178. At least he had the satisfaction of knowing that on reaching the 36th hundred of his first class career he had also set a county record. This was the 15th hundred Key has scored for Kent on this ground (and the 16th in all), more than any other Kent batsman has managed. The previous best was 14 by Neil Taylor.
