Hampshire boss Giles White says he is pleased with his side's start to the defence of their FL t20 title.

Hampshire beat Kent by 20 runs on Sunday to secure their third consecutive victory and move to the top of the South Group.

"We're pleased with three wins out of three, it's a nice start," he told BBC Radio Solent.

"The last two wins have been good performances with everyone contributing and that's what you want as a coach."

The win at Tunbridge Wells followed a seven-wicket victory over Somerset and a defeat of Surrey, also by seven wickets.

"We came here [to Kent] with the intention of playing cricket, we said let's do what we can and get some cricket in," added White.

"We had nothing to lose and were lucky enough to pull out with two points, so we go home happy."

Hampshire now host Glamorgan at The Rose Bowl on Wednesday looking to extend their winning T20 run, which began last summer, to eight games.

"We're looking forward to the match and it will be a good crowd," said White.

"The fans have been good to us at The Rose Bowl, so hopefully we get a few people who can cheer us along."
