Royal London One-Day Cup 2022 | Group B Round-up, August 11
Tom Westley celebrates his sixth List A hundred
The 2022 Royal London One-Day Cup continued with Essex taking on Kent in Chelmsford on August 11. Here is a look at the highlights from the Group B game.
Essex vs Kent
After Essex skipper Tom Westley won the toss and opted to bat first, he carpet-bombed the entire County Ground surface with a scintillating 109. He received much assistance from Grant Roelofsen during their 184-run alliance for the fourth wicket.
Westley and Roelofsen’s rapid knocks, coupled with Shane Snater’s death overs fury elevated the Essex total to 331.
Comprehensive victory for Essex
Kent responded well in the run-chase, but a barrage of wickets at the end became the undoing of Ben Compton and Ollie Robinson’s rebellious efforts at the top.
Snater, who struck a thunderous 22-ball 41 with the bat, claimed five with the ball for just at the expense of 29 runs. The 182-run win gave hosts Essex their opening points of the season as well as marked their biggest win over Kent in List A history.
