New Zealand off-spinner Jeetan Patel played a central role as his Warwickshire side qualified for the 50-overs final in English country cricket.

Warwickshire beat Kent by six wickets with 21 balls remaining in a lop-sided semifinal in Birmingham today.

They would play the winner of Sunday's second semifinal between Durham and Nottinghamshire.

The final was set down for Lord's on September 20 and gave Warwickshire the chance of a county white-ball double after snaring the Twenty20 honours.

Kent won the toss and opted to bat, but managed just 215-8 off their 50 overs.

Patel, with wickets and economy, was central to strangling the Kent batting effort.

He took 2-38 in his 10 overs.

Patel was not required to bat as Warwickshire knocked off the runs for the loss of four wickets, thanks to half-centuries by Jonathan Trott, Varun Chopra and Tim Ambrose.

Patel has taken 19 wickets in nine matches to have the second-best haul in the one-day competition.

He has best figures of 4-24 and has got his wickets at an average of 9.26 while bowling with an economy rate of 4.57.
