Day 2, Close: Gloucestershire 486-7 lead Kent 205 by 281 runs (PTS: Glos 8, Kent 3)
When Chris Taylor scores eight more runs tomorrow morning - heaven forbid he's denied his first double century - it will surely go down in the great Cheltenham innings. The entertainment he provided was wonderful.
He played within himself - only one reverse sweep showing the extrovert side of his batting. He drove beautifully, cut superbly and defended properly by getting himself into line. The only chance was a late cut which emerged from the gloom and cannoned off Martin van Jaarsveld's face at first slip.
All day the bowling was manouvred around with ease - Kent failed to gain any control and the scoring rate was high even for Cheltenham. Robbie Joseph was unbelivable in sending down 16 no-balls, without once remarking his run-up.
Discipline was all that was needed to score runs and Alex Gidman resisted until one swipe across the line saw him fall far short of a big score he should have made.
Dare we talk of the V word? Not since 2001 has that occurred here but Kent are so awfully demoralised - their body language in the field was outrageously poor - that batting for even a day will be a major challenge.
