That's the end of our coverage for this game. Do join us tomorrow for more cricketing action around the globe. This is me, Akshay Bhide, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator AryaSekhar Chakraborty and scorer Ghanendra. Tata. Bye Bye.
Akshay: That's the end of the game. Kent Spitfires beat the Sussex Sharks by six wickets. Sam Billings leads from the front as he remains unbeaten on 43 and a cameo from George Linde in the end guides them across the line in the penultimate over. The target of 160 was always going to be difficult to defend on this belter of a track. Delray Rawlins dismissed Tawanda Muyeye on duck in the very first over. Jordan Cox joined hands with Joe Denly and started the recovery work. Denly played some magnificent strokes as he raced to his fifty in no time. Cox departed in the sixth over but Billings walked out to bat and he meant business right from the start of his innings. He took his time to settle in and once settled, he started playing his strokes. George Linde came in to bat on the dismissal of Denly on 58 and hit some lusty blows as the unbeaten partnership of 41 runs between Billings and Linde helped them chase down the total with seven balls to spare. Earlier, Kent skipper Sam Billings won the toss and opted to bowl first. They bowled brilliantly upfront as they didn't allow the Sussex batters to get going. They kept picking wickets at regular intervals and kept a lid on the scoring rate. George Garton's cameo of 31 off 16 balls helped them post 158 on the board. Grant Stewart was the pick of the bowlers for Kent as he picked up three wickets in his four overs. George Linde also bowled beautifully and finished with figures of 2/14 in his four overs. As a result, they restricted the Sharks to 158 which they chased it down without much fuss to grab a win in front of their home crowd.

1 Dropped and Kent Spitfires get home with a single.

The batters complete a single and with this, Kent beat Sussex by six wickets.
