Kent seamer Matt Henry was delighted to add another six wickets to his collection as ball dominated bat on day one of their County Championship Division Two clash with Northamptonshire.

The hosts were dismissed for 137 in 47 overs at Canterbury, but Henry’s 6-31 haul helped reduce Northants to 71-8 in reply before bad light stopped play at 5pm.

And the New Zealander said: “We were hoping to get a few more on the board than we did with the bat, so we came out needing to be patient with the ball and create pressure, because not conceding runs was crucial as well.

“It was good to take eight, but getting their next two wickets early will be crucial as well.

“I was trying to keep the stumps in play as much as I could and challenge the defence of their batters.

“I did enough to create doubt in their minds, but it was a funny day because I don’t think what happened is a true reflection of this pitch. The odd ball does so a bit, and that created doubt, but more often it was the straight balls that were doing the damage.”
