Kent were bowled out for just 67 by New Zealand A on Wednesday.

It was the county’s second-lowest List A score as they lost by 172 runs.

The 50-over match replaced what was due to be a three-day game, but the first two days were washed out without a ball being bowled.

With one eye on Friday's Royal London Cup quarter-final, Kent opted for a strong side but had their plans disrupted with only two batsmen making double figures.

Brendan Nash was unable to bat but the remaining nine wickets fell for 34 runs in 17.3 overs.

Only openers Daniel Bell-Drummond (19) and skipper Rob Key (16) made it into double figures as spinner Mark Craig took 3-6 and there were two wickets apiece for Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry and Hamish Bennett.

The highlight od New Zealand’s innings was a quickfire century by Dean Brownlie.
Invited to bat first, Brownlie came in at three and hit 112 from 101 balls before being bowled by David Griffiths.

New Zealand were dismissed for 239 with eight balls of their 50 overs remaining, Darren Stevens taking 2-11 in five overs.

Kent’s lowest list A score is 60, made at Taunton against Somerset in 1979.
