CLYDESDALE BANK 40 GROUP C, The Rose Bowl: Kent 241-5 (40 ovs) beat Hampshire 221 (38.5 ovs) by 20 runs
Van Jaarsveld is now Kent's leading run scorer in this season's CB 40
An unbeaten century from Martin van Jaarsveld kept alive Kent's hopes of reaching the CB40 semi-finals as they beat Hampshire by 20 runs.
Van Jaarsveld smashed 104 off 83 balls including eight fours and two sixes as the visitors made 241-5 off 40 overs.
Hampshire were 104-1 helped by Jimmy Adams' 74 but slumped from 104-1 to 221 all out thanks to Matt Coles (4-47).
Kent trail Group C leaders Warwickshire by two points with two games to go, but Hampshire are out of the competition.
After Kent were reduced to 71-3, Van Jaarsveld shared 79 with Geraint Jones (40) for the fourth wicket and 64 for the fifth with Darren Stevens.
He reached his century in the final over of the innings as Kent posted a daunting total.
Hampshire were given a great start in reply by Adams who posted his fourth half-century of the CB40 season, which took him four short of 500 runs in the competition this year.
Australia opener Phil Hughes (32), signed on a short-term contract until the end of the season, helped Adams put on 85 in only 16 overs.
But then leg-spinner Malinga Bandara (3-25) found a way through Hughes' defence and Hampshire were never quite the same force.
Their momentum stalled when Adams was third out, and despite 57 from Michael Carberry, who was last man out, Hampshire fell well short.
