Unbeaten fifty from Luke Wood sets up potential match-winning total for Lancashire


Kent go into final day of rain-affected match trailing by 185 runs after hosts close on 259 for 9

Lancashire 259 for 9 (Wood 63*, Jones 47, Davies 47) lead Kent 74 (Anderson 7-19) by 185 runs

A precious unbeaten half century from Lancashire all-rounder Luke Wood set up a potentially match-winning total at Emirates Old Trafford with Kent going into the final day of a rain-affected match trailing by 185 runs after the hosts closed on 259 for 9.

Wood batted superbly throughout the majority of a third day which saw 51 overs sent down by an increasingly frustrated bowling attack unable to take advantage of the home side’s precarious position at the start of play.

Both teams were forced to make changes following the overnight news that England’s entire ODI squad was to be replaced, Lancashire’s Matt Parkinson and Kent’s Zak Crawley both heading south to Bristol as a result.

No play was possible until deep into the afternoon and it was 3pm when Steven Croft and Rob Jones strode out with Lancashire 108 for 5 and clutching a slender lead of 34 runs.

Just nine runs had been added when Croft shouldered arms to a lovely nip-backer from Darren Stevens and turned around in shock to see it had clipped his off stump.
