On a sunny day on the South Coast, Kent Women faced hosts Sussex in the first match of the day, starting at 10:30am.

Sussex skipper Chiara Green won the Toss & elected to field, a decision that was proved correct inside the second over, when Kent’s ‘keeper-batter Emily Thompson was bowled by Mary Taylor for 2.

Her opening partner, Scotland international Darcey Carter, batted with three others until she departed for 45 from 39, only Izzy Kirby passing into double figures with her 13 from 16 before she was caught off the bowling of Millie Taylor. Genevieve Jeer finished 21 not out, and Jeer, Carter and Kirby were the only batter to pass 10 runs in Kent’s 101/7 from their 20 overs.

The Horses made a bright start with the ball, Carter rapping Ella Mccaughan’s pads in the second over, but Izzy Collis (30), Green (5) and Taylor (50 not out) as Sussex finished as winners by eight wickets inside the 16th over.
