Woakes, a Birmingham boy who plays for the England Under-19 team, now faces the prospect of three disciplinary points for his two illegal deliveries.The captain, Darren Maddy, back after seven weeks out with a broken thumb, completed the over with mixed results. His first ball shattered Stevens’ stumps and Kent’s top scorer was gone, having hit five sixes, six fours and 69 off 32 deliveries. The second ball went for a single and his final delivery was hit out of the ground by Azhar Mahmood, who, with Stevens, had put on 60 in three overs to lift Kent out of the doldrums of 60 for three halfway through their innings of 175 for six.After losing what looked like a decent grip on this game, which was postponed because of rain on Wednesday, Warwickshire, beaten only once in the preliminary matches, lost what composure remained. Chasing the biggest total set here this season they made 133 for eight, going down by 42 runs. Friends Life t20 Reuse this contentlast_img
