Match scorecard

Michael Hogan took five wickets for the second time in the match as Glamorgan wrapped up an innings victory over Kent by lunch on the final day.

The Australian took career-best match figures of 10-125 as Kent were bowled out for 263 in their second innings.

Having resumed on 137-5, Darren Stevens added just five to his overnight score of 55 before being dismissed by Hogan.

Adam Ball struck 50 but fell four balls after reaching his half-century as Kent lost by an innings and 11 runs.

Hogan, 33, has now claimed 30 wickets at a rate of 14.80 this season, although left-arm seamer Graham Wagg has taken one more wicket than his team-mate.

Glamorgan move up to fourth with their second victory of the season, while defeat for Kent leaves them in seventh.

Kent have failed to pick up a victory in Division Two since they beat Surrey in early May, losing two and drawing three of their five matches since.

BBC Radio Kent's Matt Cole:

"Glamorgan wrapped up the win they deserved after dominating the game in all departments, with the excellent Michael Hogan getting his just desserts with 10 wickets.

"Kent's batsmen were never comfortable against his in and outswing variations, but overall the Welsh side bowled impeccably as a unit, and batted Kent into submission with only their second and third centuries of the season.

"For Kent, Adam Riley will learn plenty from his longest spell of bowling in first-class cricket to date, so too Adam Ball, who looks potent enough as a number eight bat to suggest he will soon emerge as a fully-fledged all-rounder.

"This result though will surely have deep resonances for both teams. Having started next to each other in the Division Two table, Glamorgan may now think about a possible run for promotion, while Kent will have to improve markedly to avoid the ignominy of finishing last in the County Championship."
