Kent vs Lancashire at Canterbury by Albert Chevallier Tayler, which was commissioned by Kent to celebrate their 1906 County Championship victory.

This is a list of seasons played by Kent County Cricket Club in English cricket. It summarises the club's achievements in major competitions, and the top run-scorers and wicket-takers in the County Championship for each season.

Kent County Cricket Club was formed in August 1846 and played their first competitive match in the same month against an England team at White Hart Field in Bromley. Before the official formation of the County club, teams had represented Kent for many years, with the first recorded match involving Kent taking place in 1719 against a London side.[1] In the years before the formation of the County Championship the club competed in County cricket as well as playing other first class matches. Kent have played in every County championship since the official formation of the competition in 1890,[2] winning the competition seven times, including four times during the Golden Age of cricket in the early years of the 20th century.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The initial one day league competition took place in the 1969 season. Until 1998 it was known as the Sunday League as matches generally took place on Sundays. Between 1999 and 2009 it was known as the National League or the Pro40, with the competition split into two divisions.
  2. ^ The initial one day cup competition took place in the 1963 season as the Gillette Cup. Names have included: Gillette Cup (1963-1980), NatWest Trophy (1981-2000), C&G Trophy (2001-2006), Friends Provident Trophy (2007-2009), ECB 40 (2010-2013) and Royal London One-Day Cup (2014 onwards).
  3. ^ The Benson & Hedges Cup competition ran from the 1972 season until 2002.
  4. ^ The Twenty20 competition first took place in the 2003 season. Names have included the Twenty20 Cup (2003-2009), Friends Life t20 (2010-2013) and NatWest t20 Blast (2014 onwards).
  5. ^ The County Championship was split into two divisions in 2000.
  6. ^ The National League was split into two divisions in 1999.
  7. ^ A match against Yorkshire at Harrogate was declared void after the pitch was suspected to have been tampered with after the first days play. Statistics from the valid first days play were struck from all records.[3][4]
  8. ^ The match against Lancashire as Old Trafford was officially "not counted" as no play took place on the second day due to the funeral of Edward VII. Statistics from the first and third days of the match are officially recorded.[5]
  9. ^ Kent's match with Middlesex, due to start on 2 September 1939, was cancelled due to the outbreak of the Second World War.

  12. ^ Kent won the title ahead of Warwickshire on runs per 100 balls after tying on points and number of games won.
  13. ^ Kent's draw with Somerset on 20–23 August 1997 finished with the scores level. As Kent were batting last, the rules during the 1997 season awarded the county eight points (plus bonus points) instead of the usual three (plus bonus points).
  14. ^ Owing to the 1999 Cricket World Cup, the Benson & Hedges Cup was replaced by the Benson & Hedges Super Cup, which featured the top eight teams from the 1998 County Championship. Kent, having finished 11th, did not qualify.
  15. ^ Kent's match against Worcestershire at New Road was abandoned without a ball bowled due to the 2007 United Kingdom floods. The game was initially rescheduled for the end of July but later cancelled.[6][7]
