Dean Brownlie hit a slick century as New Zealand A thrashed Kent in their one-day match in England today.

Brownlie's 112 was the basis of New Zealand's 239 off 48.2 overs at Canterbury.

The New Zealand bowlers all chipped in to demolish Kent for just 67 to complete a huge victory.

Originally set down as a three-day match, it was reduced to a limited overs affair after the first two days were washed out by England's soggy autumn.

Brownlie, batting at No 3, scored his runs off just 101 balls, hitting 12 fours and a six.

Opener Hamish Rutherford was the other main contributor with 56, and the pair shared a second wicket stand of 124 that was the backbone of the New Zealand total.

Only three other batsmen made double figures after Kent won the toss and put New Zealand in to bat in difficult conditions.

But that was nothing like the problems Kent endured.

Once openers Daniel Bell-Drummond (19) and Rob Key (16) departed, the Kent innings fell apart, the last seven wickets falling for just 21 runs.

Spinner Mark Craig led the way for the New Zealand attack with 3-6, but Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry and Hamish Bennett all chipped in with two wickets each.

New Zealand complete their tour with a three-day match against Surrey, scheduled to start at the Oval in London on Sunday.
