Kent's Daniel Bell-Drummond struck a half-century as the weather disrupted day two of their game with Glamorgan.

Bell-Drummond (71) was aided by captain Rob Key (41) as the hosts ended day two on 205-4, still 124 behind Glamorgan.

Key was caught behind before Kieran Bull claimed his maiden Championship wicket by trapping Ben Harmison LBW.

Sam Northeast (18 not out) and Darren Stevens (24 not out) came together but a combination of bad light and rain forced an early close.

BBC Radio Kent's Peter Guise:

"Kent may find it challenging to force the win they need to keep pace with the Division Two front-runners after play was abandoned with 23 overs lost and the slow progress they made in a cautious day faced with mostly disciplined bowling from Glamorgan.

"Daniel Bell-Drummond accumulated 71 runs in two sessions. Courageous captaincy may be required by Rob Key to force a result."

Daniel Bell-Drummond told BBC Radio Kent:

"It's been a bit of a trend this year, playing patiently. It wasn't easy for run scoring so I had to dig in and play the ratios."
