|Bob Willis Trophy, Cloudfm County Ground (day one):|
|Kent 344-6: Kuhn 140*, Robinson 78; Porter 3-85|
|Essex: Yet to bat|
|Kent 3 pts, Essex 2 pts|
Heino Kuhn became the first player to score a Bob Willis Trophy century as Kent recovered from a morning blip to dominate day one against Essex.
Former South Africa Test batsman Kuhn had not raised his bat for a ton since arriving at Canterbury in 2018, but scored a chanceless unbeaten 140 on a good batting wicket at Chelmsford.
Kuhn and Ollie Robinson (78) added 150 for the fourth wicket to put Kent on the road for recovery after Sam Cook and Jamie Porter had reduced the visitors to 23-3.
