Vitality T20 Blast nearly the half-way mark with every team facing each other in the first round of matches. Kent and Essex are yet to face each other this season so far. Kent have made a good start to the season with two back-to-back victories in last two matches.  They are comfortably at the top and will look to continue their good run. Essex are yet to win a match and are currently at the bottom of the table. Essex will look to get their maiden win and gain momentum going ahead in the league.

Essex Preview

Essex failed to chase against Middlesex to end up losing by 10 runs.  Cameron Delport, Daniel Lawrence, and  Ryan Ten Doeschate got starts with 20s & 30s but failed to make a big score to help their them overcome the chase. Their batting needs to be more consistent to post good scores on board.

Their bowling unit has fared better with every bowler going for runs less than 8 RPO so far. Mathew Quinn leads the wickets charts for the team with 6 scalps while the trio of Delport, Walter, and harmer have taken 4 wickets each so far.

Top players to bet on:

Simon Harmer – Skipper Simon harmer put a spirited fight with the bat scoring 23 runs of 12 balls to give his team a chance from 125/7 in the chase. He bowled an excellent spell of 4-0-23-2 in the middle overs.

Ryan Ten Doeschate – Ten Doeschate has three 30+ scores in the last three matches and will be gutted with himself as he failed to get a move on.  He will look to get his amiden fifty this match.

Essex Predicted Playing XI:

Cameron Delport, Varun Chopra, Tom Westley, Daniel Lawrence, Ryan ten Doeschate, Adam Wheater (wk), Paul Walter, Simon Harmer (c), Aron Nijjar, Shane Snater, Matthew Quinn

Weather Conditions

London will have bright sunshine and clear skies on the match day as per the weather forecasters. We expect no rain interruptions in this match.

Venue Details

Kennington Oval`s pitch is slightly on the slower side and both teams must look to score runs in the power play. Spinners may a vital role in this pitch due to its slow nature. We can expect scores around 150-160 runs in this match. 

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 14-11 win-loss ratio in their favor so far in the league. Teams have succumbed to pressure while chasing with matches being tied and lost by close margins.  

Kent has a very strong batting line-up with solid attacking openers and effective middle order batsmen. Bowling has been their worry as their bowlers have conceded 190+ runs twice in the 3 matches.  Essex on the other hand have an inconsistent batting and a good bowling attack. Essex has spin bowlers who can take advantage of the track on offer. But, we expect Kent to win this match owing to their ability to pull off match from crucial situations.

KENT WILL WIN THEIR THIRD MATCH IS OUR PREDICTION
