Nabi blitz gives Kent comfortable win in seven-over contest


It was a seven-over contest in the end that Kent won by the DLS Method. Rain reduced the T20 Blast South Group contest between Kent and Surrey to a 13-overs-a-side contest initially. However, rain, after the first ball was bowled, caused a further delay which resulted in a subsequent reduction.

Led by Aaron Finch's 20-ball 36, Surrey managed to set Kent a target of 55 to win. Finch was the only batter to get into double figures as Surrey's batsmen fell for single digits. In reply, Mohammad Nabis enterprising 12-ball 43 that comprised of as many as five sixes and just the two fours, saw Kent through, chasing down the set target in just four overs.Kent consolidated their position at the top of the table with that win, with four wins in as many games.
