Kent v Middlesex

Ed Smith starred with the bat against his former employers Kent to set Middlesex on course for a 20-run win.

Smith, who could not get in the Spitfires' Twenty20 side last year, hit 85, with eight fours and three sixes, as the Crusaders posted 189-8.

Simon Cook, who moved in the opposite direction last winter took 2-23.

Michael Carberry kept fighting to the end, with 48 not out from 33 balls, but India's Irfan Pathan (1-26) bowled a tight final over to complete the win.
