Darren Stevens claimed a five-wicket haul on his 45th birthday before Glamorgan spoiled his party with a 10-wicket win.

Fellow veteran seamer Michael Hogan, who is 40 next month, took 5-28 to blow away Kent’s top order.

The visiting side were all out for 74 in their second innings leaving Glamorgan to chase just 17 for victory.

David Lloyd hit all of the required runs to finish 19 not out, giving Glamorgan their first win of 2021.

Earlier, the home side suffered a collapse of their own thanks to Stevens (5-53) and Matt Milnes (3-46).

Glamorgan started the day in a promising position of 109-2 but Stevens was quickly into his work, removing Lloyd for a well-made 62 in the second over of the day.
