Kent will host Durham in a 50-over friendly at Canterbury on Monday and two t20 games the following day before a two-day friendly at Essex starting on April 3. The three-day First Class match against Loughborough MCCU will begin on April 7 with the LV= County Championship Division 2 campaign starting at Worcester on April 13.
Adams said: “It’s an important time to get bodies right and minds right and plan how we want to go forward. It gives us the chance to see players playing in conditions and helps us with our planning.”

“There are players we expect to play but there’s enough healthy competition for places here.
