Gloucestershire 322-8 (George Hankins 92, Ian Cockbain 68, Chris Dent 63)
Kent 323-3 (Heino Kuhn 113, Joe Denly 109*, Alex Blake 44*: Craig Miles 2-73)
Result - Kent won by 7wickets
The pick of the Kent bowlers was Darren Stevens 2-43.
In reply, Kent got off to flier, scoring at over 7 runs an over and when Daniel Bell-Drummond was out for 40, that brought a partnership of 186 between Heino Kuhn (113) and Joe Denly (109*) . Like Jonathan Trott for Warwickshire earlier today, Heino Kuhn made back-to-back List A centuries and Alex Blake (44*) helped Kent over the line with more than 3 overs to spare.
Kent now face third-placed Essex, on Wednesday ,in their final game but are through to the knock out stages. Gloucestershire now need to win, at home, against Middlesex and see how other results go, to have a chance of finishing in the top three.
