Leicestershire fought back well in the afternoon session and restricted Kent to 76 runs with the loss of 2 wickets in 34 overs during this passage of play. They bowled with alot more discipline and did not give the Kent batsman anything.
Dravid on 41 not out at lunch was dropped by Stevens at point shortly after the resumption which could prove costly for the home side. He was unable to play with the same fluency as in the morning session, but with some luck and determination he is still at the crease.
Billy Stelling, playing in his first Championship game for Leicestershire broke the partnership between Smith and Dravid when he tempted Smith to play at a wide delivery outside his off stump which found an edge that went through to second slip.
Since then, the run rate dropped to 2.4 runs per over leaving this game evenly balanced.
