Worcs vs Kent

LV= County Championship: Little play as Worcestershire draw with Kent

Tom Fell: Left 94 not out on rain-affected final day at New Road

Tom Fell cruelly missed out on a maiden first-class century as Worcestershire's LV= County Championship Division Two fixture with Kent at New Road squelched to a draw.

The 19-year-old Oxford Brookes student took another step towards a full-time contract, extending his career-best innings to 94 not out as the home side advanced to 284-8, still 40 runs behind Kent's first innings total in a rain-affected clash.

Only 44 balls were bowled on the final day but both sides picked up an extra bonus point and Jack Shantry, who partnered Fell in an eighth-wicket stand of 126, did reach a milestone when completing his first half-century.

While Fell continued to play a measured role - he hit 12 fours from 162 balls in all - the left handed Shantry (54) targeted James Tredwell.

Over the fence

He planted the off-spinner's first delivery over the fence at long on and in his following over he hit successive balls for six and four only to be bowled by the next delivery.

This gave Tredwell a return of 5-51, his best in the championship for two years, but like Fell he was denied further success when rain set in after lunch.

The umpires finally abandoned the match shortly after 3pm.
