- Final: Kent, 306-6, bt Lancashire, 285, by 21 runs
- Evison hits 97 and takes two wickets in one-day final
Kent fans can sit easy: they may be losing Darren Stevens, but a ready-made replacement is in place in the form of Joey Evison. On a day that was about waving farewell to the departing 46-year-old all-rounder, it was the 20-year-old Evison who inspired Kent to glory over Lancashire with a stellar all-round display in a 21-run win at Trent Bridge.
Only weeks into his Kent career, Evison’s fine 97 was followed by two wickets, helping Kent to their first victory in a List A final since 1978.
