West Indies were bowled out for 265 on day one of their tour match against Kent but struck late on to remove opener Daniel Bell-Drummond for a duck.

Despite half centuries from Shai Hope (57) and Jermaine Blackwood (50), the tourists laboured to 201-8 before lower-order resistance from Devendra Bishoo (23) and Alzarri Joseph (31).

Charlie Hartley removed Joseph to finish with figures of 4-80.

Joseph had Bell-Drummond caught behind in his first over as Kent ended on 1-1.

West Indies begin their three-Test series against England at Edgbaston on 17 August.
