Stewart Walters hit his second ton for Glamorgan to help his side take charge in the day/nighter at Canterbury.

The ex-Surrey captain, 83 overnight, went on to make 147 as his side declared on 423-9 with a lead of 186.

After Kent slumped to 84-4 second time around, there were brief scares of a three-day finish under the lights.

But, although Sam Northeast went for 51, Azhar Mahmood (31no) helped repair the damage, seeing his side to the close on 148-5, still 38 behind.

Earlier, Walters was helped in his efforts by Glamorgan keeper Mark Wallace (57), who helped him put on 106 for the fifth wicket.

CLOSE OF PLAY SUMMARY

BBC Radio Kent's Matt Cole:

"Glamorgan did the sensible thing on this sluggish wicket by keeping patient, Stewart Walters proving the epitome of that approach and fully deserving his century.

"He gave Kent not so much as a glimmer of hope of dismissing him until he went trying to up the run rate late in the innings and there was a brief, pugnacious cameo from Daniel Bell-Drummond, a young batsman with a fine array of attacking shots.

"Glamorgan's youngsters Aneurin Norman and John Glover have shown promise for their County Championship futures, efficient both with bat and ball."
