TOM Kohler-Cadmore enjoyed a record-equalling day in the field as Yorkshire continued their fightback against Kent on day two of the Specsavers County Championship clash at Canterbury.

The White Rose restricted Kent to a first-innings lead of 86 midway through the afternoon as they were bowled out for 296 in reply to 210, with Kohler-Cadmore taking six catches in the innings.

Gary Ballance then hit 57 not out off 94 balls in the county’s solid start to their second innings either side of tea, closing on 166-3 from 46 overs with a lead of 80.

Ellis Robinson, against Leicestershire at Bradford in 1938, was the only previous Yorkshire outfielder to take six catches in a first-class innings.

Five of Kent-born Kohler-Cadmore’s catches came at first slip and the other at deep mid-on, with three in all coming on day two. He has taken 22 in all cricket for Yorkshire this summer.

Kent wicketkeeper Ollie Robinson, aged 20, anchored his side’s first innings with 103 off 181 balls - his second successive century.

But he was one of the last five wickets to fall for 35 as they failed to make the most of a position of strength on a pitch which looked easier for batting than it had on day one.

Duanne Olivier and Ben Coad claimed three wickets apiece and took two each in the afternoon as Kent slipped from 261-5.

Olivier was particularly effective. He had Alex Blake caught at first slip for 34, the ball after being dropped at short-leg, and Matt Milnes caught behind.

He had also struck Blake a nasty blow on the helmet with a bouncer, forcing a concussion test.

Robinson and Blake shared 104 for the sixth-wicket either side of lunch to put the visitors under pressure.

Kent started the day on 130-4 and lost only Zak Crawley before lunch, caught and bowled by Steve Patterson, for 81 as the score slipped to 157-5 in the 47th over.

Robinson battled hard and was off-side dominant, reaching three figures off 177 balls with eleven fours after lunch.

He had been dropped by Jonny Tattersall down the leg-side off Olivier on 71, while Harry Brook failed to hold a juggling effort at short-leg which would have removed Blake just a ball earlier than he departed as Kent slipped to 261-6 in the 75th over.

Harry Podmore chipped Dom Bess to Kohler-Cadmore at deep mid-on and Matt Milnes was caught behind off Olivier as Yorkshire struck twice (272-8 in the 79th over) more before taking the new ball.

Robinson then reached his century shortly before miscuing Coad to Patterson at deep mid-on.

The same bowler then had Fred Klaasen caught at first slip by Kohler-Cadmore to wrap up the innings and leave Yorkshire with 14 overs to bat before tea.

Brook and Adam Lyth, who made 44, fell before Yorkshire edged in front at 87-2 in the 24th over.

Brook feathered Podmore behind in the eleventh (33-1) and Lyth went the same way to Mitch Claydon as the White Rose slipped to 82-2 in the 23rd.

Later, with Yorkshire’s lead just beyond 50, Kohler-Cadmore was caught in the gully for his second score of 28 in the match off Daniel Bell-Drummond’s medium pacers (139-3).

Ballance then reached his fifty off 88 balls inside the day’s final 10 overs. Jack Leaning is unbeaten 11.
