Match scorecard

Five wickets for Dane Patterson and four for Brett Hutton consigned Kent to a rapid and damaging defeat in their County Championship match at Trent Bridge, where they were bowled out for 85 to drop into the bottom two in Division One with only three matches to play.

Patterson finished with 5-41 in 10 overs, while Hutton’s 4-44 allowed him to celebrate a 50-wicket season for the first time in his first-class career, giving him 52 so far.

Kent skipper Jack Leaning’s 21 was a paltry top score as Kent, theoretically chasing 407 to win from 72 overs, were dismissed in just 21.3 overs.

Earlier, Will Young and Ben Slater had both made 87 and Joe Clarke 73 before Nottinghamshire…
