Kent skipper Sam Billings will be available to play in the quarter-final of the Royal London One-Day Cup on Thursday.

The last time Kent played a 50-over match in Nottingham was in 2015 during the group stages of the competition.

Billings top-scored with 115 not out as the Spitfires chased down Notts’ 335 with five wickets to spare.
