Ben Coad returned a brilliant 3-16 from 10 overs bowled straight through with the new ball and Matthew Revis later took a hat-trick – but centuries for Joey Evison and opener Ben Compton recovered champions Kent from 49-4 to post 282-9 in the Metro Bank One-Day Cup opener at Scarborough.

Yorkshire are chasing a challenging but far from unassailable target of 283 at North Marine Road after Evison’s 136 off 106 balls and Compton’s 103 off 137.

After Shan Masood elected to bowl, Coad had opener Marcus O’Riordan caught at first slip and former team-mate and two-time Yorkshire Championship winner Jack Leaning caught behind. He also had Harry Finch caught behind as Kent slipped into early trouble.

But Evison and Compton shared 219 – a Kent fifth-wicket record in List A cricket – to put their side in a healthy state.

Evison play the aggressor’s role after Compton had dropped anchor. The former reached his century first off 84 balls and left-handed Compton off 135 balls at the start of the innings’ final over.

By that time, Revis had claimed his hat-trick, Yorkshire’s fifth in List A cricket. 

He had James Bazley and Grant Stewart caught at deep square-leg in the penultimate over of the innings and Hami Qadri bowled, with Kent losing five wickets in all in the last 15 balls.

The pitch nibbled early on before becoming easier for batting.
