Moriarty, the pick of the Surrey attack with three wickets, said: “It ebbed and flowed an I felt we fought well in quite a few passages of the game. We had a few early wickets go down, so for Hash and Rory to out on a partnership like that really showed good fight.

“Hash [Amla] showed that class is permanent. He has a lovely presence and has really assisted the group a lot. The guys are really learning from him because he adds so much value off the field. To see him go out there and go about his business was quite special to watch.

“Kent clawed it back well of course and although we showed spirit, unfortunately it wasn’t quite enough to get over the win line.

“The wicket was helpful to slow-bowling and we had a good game plan coming in and I felt pleased that I executed my own skills quite well today.”
