Scorecard

Keaton Jennings' batting struggles continued as Kent took control against Durham on a rain-affected first day.

Following persistent rain during the day, play began at 16:00 BST.

Jennings, who played all four Tests for England against South Africa earlier this summer before losing his place - edged Mitchell Claydon to Sean Dickson at slip to go for 17 off 67 balls.

Cameron Steel fell in identical fashion to Claydon and Paul Collingwood edged Adam Milne behind to leave Durham 61-4.

Meanwhile, Kent seamer Adam Ball has been released by the Division Two club.

The 24-year-old had made only two appearances in the County Championship this season.
