Kent v Essex - no play because of damp outfield

No play was possible on day one of the final County Championship game of the season between Kent and Essex because of damp conditions at Canterbury.

Overnight rain led first to a delayed start, then multiple inspections, with the umpires abandoning play for the day just after 14:30 BST.

Kent need six points to be assured of finishing second in Division Two.

The visitors have already secured the sole promotion place to the top flight as champions.
