Kent centurion Zak Crawley admitted it felt good to finally score his maiden century for the county on Wednesday.

Opening batsman Crawley hit a six and 24 fours in his 168 as the home side piled up 436 in reply to Glamorgan’s first innings score of 186, sharing a 132-run stand with captain Sam Billings (85).

And the visitors were then reduced to 33-4 in their second innings, as promotion-chasing Kent put the pressure on.

A delighted Crawley said: “It feels very good to be stood here with a first hundred to my name. I’ve been waiting a while for it and have got out in the 90s a couple of times along the way, so to get over the line was nice, but I was even more pleased to kick on afterwards.

“I’m not usually one for getting nervous in the 90s because I always believed 99 was as good as a hundred, but I’ll admit I was nervous.

“A couple of old memories started creeping in about getting out on 93 and 96 before, but once I got the all important single I was fine.

“I felt there were plenty of runs to be had in that pitch and think we bowled really well to get them four down. We’ll have to work just as hard to bowl them out.”

Darren Stevens (2-10) had early success with the ball in the final session, as Matt Henry and Joe Denly also struck to leave Glamorgan needing another 218 runs to make Kent bat again.
