Symonds batters Middlesex
Twenty20 Cup, Maidstone:
Middlesex 155-7 (18 overs) lost to Kent 157-3 (13.1 overs) by seven wickets
Andrew Symonds
Symonds did his reputation as a massive clubber of the ball no harm

Big-hitting Andrew Symonds flayed the Middlesex attack as Kent strolled home by seven wickets in a rain-affected Twenty20 Cup match at Maidstone.

The Aussie all-rounder blasted 18 fours and three sixes as his 43-ball 112 saw Kent chase 157 to win in 13.1 overs.

Symonds lost debutant opening partner Shahid Afridi for one before directing his stand of 91 with Alex Loudon (12).

The visitors posted 155-7 in a match cut to 18 overs per side, with Chad Keegan's 42 off 16 balls the highlight.

Symonds was dropped on 11 at the long-off boundary by Keegan and made them pay with a belligerent display of power hitting.

The right-hander's century eclipsed the 96 he belted off 37 balls in the Twenty20 Cup last year against Hampshire.

Kent Spitfires: A Symonds (Capt), Shahid Afridi, M A Carberry, A G R Loudon, M J Walker, J C Tredwell, J L Denly, N J O'Brien (Wkt), A Khan, M J Saggers, B J Trott.

Middlesex Crusaders: B L Hutton (Capt), P N Weekes, O A Shah, J W M Dalrymple, D L S van Bunge, N R D Compton, S J Cook, C B Keegan, B J M Scott (Wkt), M M Betts, T F Bloomfield.
