Big-hitting James Benning was at it again tonight as Surrey inflicted a landslide defeat on Kent in the second round of Twenty20 matches.
Benning's 11 fours and two sixes at the top of the order propelled the Brown Caps to 198 for six as his 88 was augmented by 58 from Mark Ramprakash in a second-wicket stand of 124 at The Oval.
The Spitfires' reply was grounded when all 10 wickets fell for the addition of only 51 runs after the promise of a 40 opening stand.
Kent lasted only 11.4 overs as spinners Nayan Doshi and Ian Salisbury shared five wickets in less than four overs to wrap up a 107-run win in Surrey's second success from their two South Division fixtures so far.
Up north, Durham Dynamos ran out of power for the second consecutive night - this time faltering in their chase of Nottinghamshire's 175 for seven at Trent Bridge.
A series of handy scores helped the hosts post a decent total, despite three wickets each for seamer Mick Lewis and off-spinner Gareth Breese.
But after swing bowler Charlie Shreck returned fire with another three-wicket haul, the Outlaws took control to win by 52 runs.
Out west, Glamorgan fought back from a very unpromising position to chalk up their second victory - at the expense of Warwickshire at Edgbaston.
The Bears were indebted to a half-century from opener Mark Wagh (56) in a total of 170 for nine, despite four wickets from the visitors' one-time England limited-overs all-rounder Alex Wharf.
