Kent ease to win over Glamorgan

NatWest Pro 40 D2, Canterbury:
Kent 202-9 beat Glamorgan 131-9 by 59 runs (D/L)

Kent claimed a 59-run victory over Glamorgan under the Duckworth-Lewis method in a rain-reduced 36-over Pro40 match at Canterbury.

A quickfire 68 from Azhar Mahmood helped Kent reach 202-9 and in reply Glamorgan had only reached 131-9 from 30.2 overs before rain ended play.

Mahmood followed up his impressive batting with a devastating spell of three wickets in five balls.

James Tredwell also claimed three as Glamorgan floundered to defeat.

Kent did not make the strongest of starts, being put into bat and being 22-2 by the fourth over.

But Martin van Jaarsveld and Matthew Walker put on 50 for the third wicket to steady the ship.

Glamorgan had put on 27 before Robert Croft became the first batsman out, and there then followed a nightmare spell where Mahmood claimed the wickets of Richard Grant, Jamie Dalrymple and Tom Maynard with the score stuck on 35 runs.

They continued to lose wickets at a steady pace, with only Ben Wright's 15 off 68 balls offering any real resistance, before the rain set in.
