County Championship round-up: Darren Stevens at home in Essex

Batsman of the day Can I play you every week? Darren Stevens must be thinking along those lines whenever Essex are the opposition. Kent's veteran all-rounder, now in his 17th season in first-class cricket, has made five of his 25 career hundreds against Essex, including three in his last four visits to the County Ground at Chelmsford, where he advanced from 91 not out overnight yesterday to 136 before he was caught on the long leg boundary trying to hit a second consecutive six off Ravi Bopara. The runs put pressure on the home side, who conceded a first-innings lead of 84, then slipped calamitously to 24 for 5 as Mark Davies took four wickets in 11 balls. But James Foster and Ben Foakes saved the day.
