In today's round of National League matches, Graham Napier picked up four quick wickets to send Kent crashing to a 35-run defeat to Essex at Colchester. Set 268 to win after 97 from the in-form Will Jefferson and 98 from Ronnie Irani, Kent were restricted to 232 for 7 despite half-centuries from Alex Loudon and Michael Bevan. Robert Croft powered Glamorgan to a 5-wicket win over Lancashire at Colwyn Bay with 106, and Northants slumped to 171 all out in pursuit of Hampshire's 238 for 9.

In Division Two, Scotland fell agonisingly short of Somerset's 253 for 8 at Taunton. Scotland were bowled out for 246 with four balls still to be bowled in the last over despite an unbeaten 55 off just 40 balls from Yasir Arafat.
