David Malan hit an unbeaten 76 to lead Middlesex to a seven-wicket victory over Kent in both sides' final group games in the One-Day Cup.

Malan and Eoin Morgan (31 not out) shared an unbroken fourth wicket stand of 59, while Paul Stirling hit 40.

Malan earlier took 2-25 as Kent were dismissed for 191, with opener Daniel Bell-Drummond top scoring with 51.

The result, Kent's first defeat, made no difference to qualification, with Kent already through and Middlesex out.

Fabian Cowdrey, grandson of Colin Cowdrey, was Kent's second top scorer with 44 while Malan, who had his side's best figures, was one of six Middlesex bowlers to take wickets.

Joe Denly (2-31) and Ravi Patel (2-35) were the other visiting bowlers to capture more than one wicket.
