Good morning from an overcast Emirates Old Trafford ahead of the final day of our game with Kent.

Lancashire start the day 252 runs ahead with Rob Jones on 53 and George Lavelle 3 not out, with the main question being what target will Steven Croft set Kent later?

So it promises to be an interesting and entertaining start to the day as Lancashire chase quick runs and Kent do their best to slow the scoring and take wickets.

We will see at 11 o'clock.

Although it is a bit dull I don't think there will be any problem starting on time.
