A century from former Black Cap Dean Brownlie has guided the New Zealand 'A' cricketers to a crushing 172-run win over Kent in their one-off one-day match in England.
Brownlie blasted 112 runs from just 101 balls to lift New Zealand to 239 all out off 48 overs and two balls, with help from dumped Black Caps opener Hamish Rutherford, who contributed 56.
Originally set down as a three-day match, it was reduced to a one-day affair after the first two days were washed out by inclement English weather.
Kent won the toss and put New Zealand in to bat.
Brownlie, batting at No.3, hit 12 fours and a six in his innings.
The New Zealand bowlers then took charge as Kent capitulated for just 67 runs, handing the tourists a comprehensive win.
Once Kent lost both openers for less than 20 runs each the rest of their batting order quickly folded, the hosts losing their last seven wickets for just 21 runs.
Spinner Mark Craig was the best of the New Zealand attack taking 3 wickets for just 6 runs, while Doug Bracewell, Matt Henry and Hamish Bennett claimed two wickets each.
New Zealand complete their tour with a three-day match against Surrey, scheduled to start in London on Sunday.
