Kent 175-6 Warwickshire 133-8 <i>(Kent win by 42 runs)</i>: Stevens plunders from Woakes' awful over to take Kent through

After the disappointment of Wednesday's washout, Warwickshire persuaded Kent to delay travelling and stage this rearranged Twenty20 Cup quarter-final at teatime for the sake of their supporters. With hindsight they might wish they had been less insistent after a crowd of around 6,000 saw them fall to an embarrassing defeat.

Album: Various artists, The Swamp Dogg Anthology (Kent)

Before Snoop Dogg, there was Swamp, just one of many aliases used by performer/writer/producer Jerry Williams Jr. This anthology stretches from 1968 to 78, but most of the best stuff comes from the earliest part of that period, when Swamp was recording at Muscle Shoals with Duane Allman and co. The bizarre goodies include Gene Pitney backed by "I Am the Walrus" strings; failed career fillips for Patti LaBelle and the Drifters, and one work of art: "On Your Way Home" by C & the Shells is a woman's story of adultery with sand-in-the-throat vocals and an arrangement for banjo and glockenspiel.

Johnson touted in RFU search for successor

Andy Robinson, who presided over England's eighth defeat in nine matches on Saturday, has started compiling his report on the world champions' impoverished performances in the four-match autumn series - a document he hopes and prays will convince the Rugby Football Union to keep him on the payroll for another 18 months. Robinson may not even get the chance to table it. Francis Baron, the chief executive of the RFU, is widely suspected to be pressing for the head coach's immediate dismissal as a direct consequence of the weekend failure against South Africa.
