Hampshire are running on a 4-game win streak in the County Championship Division One and are currently squaring off with Kent at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. Hampshire bowler Keith Barker dismissed Kent opener Tawanda Muyeye on a duck in the first over of the match and celebrated in an unusual way on Tuesday.

Hampshire won the toss and elected to bowl first as they reduced Kent batting into half by taking five wickets in 25 overs as Kyle Abbott picked three wickets while  Keith Barker and Mohammad Abbas got a wicket each.

Keith Barker delivered a breakthrough to his side in the opening over as he dismissed Tawanda Muyeye on a duck on the fifth ball of the first over. Muyeye thought the ball was going off the line and left the ball by shouldering arms, however, the ball was in line and hit the batter's pad to reward a lbw to Barker. After picking the picket, Barker seemed to appeal for the lbw and went on to deliver the decision himself by lifting his finger in the air.

Hampshire (9) have registered the most wins in the championship after playing 12 games and are currently at the second place only behind Surrey in the County Championship Division One points table. While Kent are placed eighth in the standings with just two victories in 12 matches.
