Proper Cricket

Kent are struggling against Surrey at The Oval.

We need to avoid defeat as we are in the relegation zone.

235 -7 in the first innings in reply to 397....


  • I was there all day yesterday,a whole days cricket for £12 you cant argue with that.
  • Interesting fInish in store - Kent need 92 more runs and Surrey five wickets. The key wicket will be Van Jaarsveld's - currently on 70. To date in the Championship he's batted 12 times - has two hundreds, five half-centuries, but four ducks.
  • 70 needed to win still 5 wickets in hand.

    Van Jaarsveld and Geraint Jones batting. The ball is turning apparently so Kent will do well to win.
  • 42 to win now, Van Jaarsveld(90) and Jones(33) still there
  • Down to 37 needed now, come on the boys!

    228-6 Jones out for 39. VJ on 96 not out.

    30 needed. Come on KENT!!!!
  • 231-6, 27 to win, VJ on 97
  • C'mon SUPERKENT!!!!
  • 21 to win, VJ now on 102
  • Whatever happens VJ has scored two tons and taken 5 wickets in an innings in this game.

    I don't know if that is unique but there can't be many that have done that.

    Plenty have scored ONE ton and taken 5 in an innings but two tons and 5 wickets in an innings?

  • 255-6 3 needed!!
  • Job done...VJ finished on 115 NO.

    Quality, well done Kent
  • And they've done it - home by four wickets. Two unbeaten hundreds in a match to go with five wickets in Surrey's second innings by Van Jaarsveld.
  • Top stuff from VJ two tons and not out in both of them :)

    Won by 4 wickets (260-6) VJ 115*
  • Get in there! Kent won by 4 wickets

    Absolutely massive performance from Van Jaarsveld, 114NO in the first innings, 115NO in the second and bowling figures of 5 for 33 from 13 (3 maidens).

    I've got a feeling he's in my dream team, so a good few days for me!
  • Van Jaarsveld must be buying a jug after that!!
  • we needed this one as we were 2nd from bottom although only 4 points seperated about 4 teams.
  • [cite]Posted By: LenGlover[/cite]Van Jaarsveld must be buying a jug after that!!

    By my reckoning that's 5 jugs he owes, 1 for each 50 and 1 for the 5for

    Plus an extra one for his best first class bowling figures.

  • Still a long way to go this season but we really needed that to pull away fom the danger zone.
    Get in there my lovely Kentish Boys!!!!
  • Brillant result - the VJ show - what a performance!!!! I'd love to have been there.
  • Kent up to fourth in the table - at least provisionally, and the defeat sends Surrey to the bottom. A real six pointer or whatever the equivalent cricketing expression is.

    Pretty tight at the top with a handfull of points separating the top few teams.
