Royals reign supreme at The Rose Bowl

Friday 1st July 2011

Men’s First Team

Hampshire 141-6 (20 ovs) beat Kent 72 (14 ovs) by 69 runs

Disappointment for Kent as they were bowled out for 72 in 14 overs at The Rose Bowl on Thursday night; losing to Hampshire Royals by 69 runs. Dimitri Mascarenhas (3-29) helped reduce the Spitfires to 2-3 after 14 balls, as they chased 142 to win.

Joe Denly, Rob Key and Azhar Mahmood were out for ducks early in the Kent innings, with only Darren Stevens (20), Wahab Riaz (11) and Adam Ball (15) able to reach double figures. Martin Van Jaarsveld was unable to bat, having sustained a hand injury earlier in the match while fielding.

A disappointing night for Kent, who face Essex Eagles on Friday night at the St Lawrence Ground, with both teams vying for a place in the Friends Life t20 quarter finals. The Spitfires will be aiming for their fourth successive home Friends Life t20 win. Tickets are available on the gate for tonight's crucial match.
