Not even a big-hitting display from all-rounder Darren Stevens, and a dramatic batting collapse by Surrey, was enough for Kent to progress to the NatWest T20 Blast quarter finals in Canterbury on Friday night.
The Spitfires won the clash, their final in the competition, by 21 runs but it was too little, too late, despite the all drama and excitement at the Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence.
Stevens smashed 67 off 38 balls, including seven sixes and a four, to help the Spitfires post 175-7 after winning the toss and batting first.
The innings had started brightly enough when captain Rob Key hit three consecutive fours in former Kent all-rounder Azhar Mahmood's opening over, the second of the night.
