Kent’s Zak Craw­ley regis­tered an eight-ball duck against Hamp­shire in his first first-class in­nings since be­com­ing the third-youngest Eng­land player to make a dou­ble cen­tury against Pak­istan last month.

Craw­ley de­parted to the first ball of the morn­ing when he was pinned in front by 19-year-old seamer Scott Cur­rie, who fin­ished as the pick of the bowlers with three for 42 in Kent’s 170 all out – a first-in­nings deficit of 21.

On a day where 13 wick­ets fell – Hamp­shire stum­bled to 23 for five – Craw­ley also dropped a chance to re­prieve Tom Scriven, whose un­beaten 42 in an un­bro­ken 85 with Lewis McManus (50 not out) helped the vis­i­tors to 108 for five.

Adam Wheater’s chance­less 83 not out lifted to 236 all out at Chelms­ford be­fore Aaron Beard took three wick­ets in 21 balls af­ter tea to leave on 123 for six and a slen­der lead of 25.

Ben Duck­ett’s 146 not out, plus an un­beaten 74 from Joe Clarke, ush­ered to 251 for two af­ter 294 all out at Trent Bridge. Duck­ett and Clarke put on an un­bro­ken 186, de­spite three in­ter­rup­tions for rain and bad light.

Liam Nor­well and Will Rhodes each took four wick­ets for

against whose 203 all out, aided by Billy Root’s un­beaten 51, helped them to a 17-run first-in­nings lead at Cardiff.

closed on 120 for seven in re­ply to 219 all out at Aig­burth, while rain ruled out the prospect of play at Head­in­g­ley, where are 36 for two and trail by 88.
