T20 Blast roundup: Glamorgan defeat South leaders Kent Spitfires by one run

South Group leaders the Kent Spitfires suffer a one-run defeat at the hands of Glamorgan despite an impressive 70 off 36 balls from Joe Denly.

The Kent Spitfires' push to claim victory in the South Group of the T20 Blast hit a minor snag this evening as they lost by one run to mid-table Glamorgan in Tunbridge Wells.

Glamorgan won the toss and chose to bat, allowing Graham Wagg to shine with 56 off 28 balls as his side posted a competitive score of 179-7 off their 20 overs.

It appeared as though Kent might chase down the runs as Joe Denly went on to produce a standout 70 off 36 balls, before he was dismissed by David Lloyd, leaving the Kent lower order to fall just one short off the final ball of the game.

Elsewhere in the South table, Hampshire secured a well-fought four-run victory over Sussex, while the Essex Eagles dispatched bottom-placed Middlesex with a four-wicket win.

The final game from the league saw Surrey complete a 38-run home win over Somerset, as Jason Roy finished unbeaten with a memorable 122 off 65 balls at The Oval.

In the North Group, the Northamptonshire Steelbacks cruised past the Yorkshire Vikings with a commanding six-wicket victory, as elsewhere the Lancashire Lightening boosted their quarter-final hopes by beating table-toppers the Birmingham Bears by eight runs.

Notts Outlaws also had Riki Wessels to thank on Friday night, as his 97 inspired Nottingham to a dominant 42-run victory away from home against the Durham Jets.

In the final game of the evening, North leaders the Worcestershire Rapids ensured that they kept top spot in the division with a comfortable four-wicket victory against hosts the Derbyshire Falcons.
