Kent were happy to take a draw after four rain affected days in their first home match of the season against Gloucestershire.

Resuming play yesterday they started on 191-3, and added 66 more runs before declaring and setting the hosts a target of 363 to win off 73 overs.

Before then Alex Gidman made 70, and Hamish Marshall an unbeaten 74 for Gloucestershire.

Kent captain Rob Key hit 32 not out off 100 balls before the rain started again forcing both sides to shake hands on a draw with Kent finishing on 94-2.

Gloucestershire took eight points from the match to Kent’s six.

The result leaves Kent second in the table after three games, with Gloucestershire third.
