Match Notes

  • Smith, Robson light up dull draw

    Leicestershire were the whipping boys too often last season, cast adrift at the foot of Division Two, to contemplate a more daring declaration on the final day against Kent

  • Leics impress in three-day affair

    Leicestershire's season has begun at Canterbury, in front of one of county cricket's more charitable crowds, and after three days they would all agreeably concede that they have begun rather well

  • Ireland lifts Leicestershire with maiden fifty

    Anthony Ireland hit the first half-century of his career as Leicestershire finished on a very competitive 333 for 9 against Kent.

  • Tredwell dropped to work on game

    James Tredwell has been given a break from first-team cricket with Kent so he can work on technical aspects of his game in an attempt to rekindle his first-class form
