Nash one-day best lifts Kent


BIRMINGHAM, England – West Indies discard Brendan Nash finished just short of triple figures in his best ever one-day performance as Kent beat Warwickshire by one run in a tense last ball finish in the Yorkshire Bank 40 here Monday.

The left-hander carved out a brilliant unbeaten 98 off 106 balls with six fours, to help lift Kent to a respectable 239 for eight after they were sent in at Edgbaston.

He shepherded the innings, putting on 85 for the second wicket with Robert Key (44) and 41 for the sixth wicket with Adam Ball (28).

Veteran seamer Darren Maddy grabbed two for 27.

In reply, Warwickshire got a top score of 65 from opener Varun Chopra and a cameo even fifty from Jeetan Patel. However, with two needed off the last ball of the game, Patel was run out by Ball in a dramatic finish to the contest.

Nash has been in a good run of form this season, scoring 294 runs from six innings in the County Championship at an average of nearly 59.
