Match scorecard

Sussex comfortably chased down Kent’s below-par target in their opening game of the One-Day Cup.

Kent struggled with variable bounce as they were bowled out for 188 in 43.3 overs, with opener Daniel Bell-Drummond the last man out for 90 from 115 balls.

Sussex looked in trouble early in their chase as Luke Wright fell for just four and Harry Finch was dismissed for nine.

But Luke Wells (62) and Ben Brown (73 not out) helped the hosts to a seven-wicket win with 10.1 overs to spare.
