Kent Seconds put the 100 up in the 10th over, but lost three wickets on the same score, 89, before Harry Finch and Gareth Severin put on a half century stand, off just 37 deliveries, Finch 63, with three boundaries, and four sixes, and Severin, who plays for Hayes in the Kent Cricket League, as their overseas player, was 66 not out, with four boundaries, and three sixes, Archie Lenham 2 for 40.

Sussex also reached a 100 runs, at the halfway stage of their innings, and they were helped in their victory bid by some wayward Kent bowling, which included 29 extras, 16 of which were wides, in their total.

Harrison Ward 76 off 50 deliveries, with three sixes, and seven fours, and James Coles, saw them to their win, after they needed eight runs off the last over, with a knock of 41 not out, which included five boundaries, and a six.

Kent return to the Nevill Ground, Tunbridge Wells for the first time this season, on Monday 10 June, when the Second XI take on Hampshire Seconds, in T20 double-header, the first match starting at 11.am, and the second at 3pm. Entry is free for members and supporters.
