Darren Stevens – aka ‘God’ – has a hand in hefty Kent victory over Worcestershire


Stevens, Gilchrist, Stewart claim three wickets each as visitors lose by an innings and 56 runs

Kent 393 (Leaning 97, Billings 72, Stevens 66, Pennington 4-80) beat Worcestershire 133 (Cox 41*, Gilchrist 5-38, Milnes 4-35) and 204 (Leach 49* Gilchrist 3-36, Stevens 3-49, Stewart 3-51) by an innings and 56 runs

Kent have beaten Worcestershire by an innings and 56 runs on day three of their LV= Insurance County Championship match at Canterbury, after dismissing the visitors for 204 in their second innings.

Nathan Gilchrist, Grant Stewart and Darren Stevens took three wickets apiece as the hosts recorded their second consecutive red-ball win in Division Three, having previously failed to record a victory all season.

Joe Leach showed some defiance with 49 not out after Ed Barnard had hung around to make 44, but the visitors were left to rue their failings on the first two days, when Kent dominated throughout.
