Opener finishes with unbeaten half-century after picking up four wickets

Glamorgan 109 for 2 (Lloyd 54*, Root 34*) trail Kent 138 (Lloyd 4-11, van der Gugten 4-41) by 29 runs

Marnus Labuschagne fell cheaply to Darren Stevens, having suffered a freak injury scare prior to the start of play, on what was otherwise a good day for Glamorgan in their LV= Insurance County Championship clash with Kent.

Labuschagne, the Australia Test batter who is currently ranked No.3 in the world, was back in the Glamorgan side after only arriving in Cardiff on Monday, but he suffered a hand problem when he slipped on a flight of steps before entering the field before play started.

He missed part of the afternoon session while his hand was assessed, but did return to the field as Kent were bowled out for just 138, with David Lloyd claiming 4 for 11 and Timm van der Gugten 4 for 41.

But his return with the bat was brief, as Stevens, on the eve of his 45th birthday, pinned him lbw for 11, having already removed Joe Cooke for a duck, as Glamorgan ended day one 109 for 2 in response, trailing by just 29 runs.
