A magnificent 44-ball hundred from Luke Wright took Sussex to their first Twenty20 win of the season, beating Kent by seven wickets at Canterbury. After losing Chris Nash for 1, Murray Goodwin (30) and Wright put on 82 for the second wicket, but it was Wright's partnership of 85 with his captain, Chris Adams, which propelled Sussex's chase of 182. Wright fell immediately after reaching his hundred, which contained 11 fours and six sixes, but Adams' slick 38 saw his side home with 17 balls to spare.

Midlands-West-Wales Division

Warwickshire kept up their unbroken record in the Twenty20 Cup with a 12-run win over Northamptonshire at Edgbaston. It was the ever-youthful Darren Maddy who anchored their victory with another fine allround performance. His 51 from 37 balls took Warwickshire to 174 for 7 from their 20 overs - aided by a bristling 20 from Dougie Brown, playing his first game of the season - before Maddy took 2 for 30 in Northamptonshire's unsuccessful chase. Johan van der Wath was left stranded and unbeaten on 48 as the visitors ran out of overs.

Mark Wallace and Ben Wright guided Glamorgan to a five-run victory at Sophia Gardens over Somerset, the pair's unbeaten partnership of 47 taking Glamorgan home with four balls to spare. The home side were in difficulty when they lost Damien Wright at 96 for 5, but Wallace took command in his 30-ball 35 to settle any nerves. Somerset's dauntingly powerful lineup were cut apart by Andrew Davies' 2 for 12, Ryan Watkins' 2 for 26 and three wickets for Dean Cosker.
