Essex and Kent will face each other for the 2nd time this season on 7th June 2022 at Chelmsford. Both the teams have met each other during the season’s opener and Essex have emerged victorious in that match against defending champions.

With 2 wins and 2 defeats from 5 games, Essex are at the 6th place in the points table of the south group whereas, Kent have managed to win just a single game from 6 matches they played and they are at the 8th place in the points table of the same group with just 2 points.

Defending champions are struggling to win this season and it will be a great opportunity for Essex to take advantage of that situation and claim a win against Kent on Tuesday. Essex have records to forget against kent in the past few games and that is why they will try to win this 2nd game of the league stage against kent on 7th June.

Essex Preview

After their last match went abandoned against Gloucestershire, Essex will face defending champions for the 2nd time in the group stage on 7th June at Chelmsford. They have faced some ups and downs this season so far and will try to beat the defending champions for the 2nd time this season.

Essex have registered a comfortable victory in their 4th match against Hampshire with a solid bowling attack. They failed to continue that momentum in the next game against Glamorgan. While batting first against Glamorgan, Essex’s batting unit failed to score runs on the board. Only Matt Chritchely (scored 38 runs from 26 balls) and Tom Westley (scored 23 runs from 20 balls), could manage to put runs on the board.

With the help of this below-par batting performance, they just managed to put 113 runs on the board against Glamorgan. While defending the target against Glamorgan, they initially started well and managed to put pressure on opponents but failed to continue that and Glamorgan clinched the game in the 17th over.

The team has a pretty balanced squad but they couldn’t manage to utilize that properly. They need to solve their batting unit’s struggle against fast bowlers. It will be a challenge for them to face Kent’s bowlers on 7th June at Chelmsford.

Key players
Tom Westley, Matt Critchley,  Aron Nijjar, Sam Cook.

Essex Predicted Playing XI:

William Buttleman, Adam Rossington (wk), Tom Westley, Michael Pepper, Matt Critchley, Daniel Sams, Josh Rhyme, Simon Harmer (c), Aron Nijjar, Ben Allison, Sam Cook.

While batting first against Middlesex, Joe Denly has scored a brilliant century and helped his team to register 192 runs on the board with his score of 110 runs from 58 balls. Jordan Cox has supported him with his 45 runs from 34 balls.

With the all-around performance with the ball and bat, Kent have managed to register a 55-run win over Glamorgan.

Venue Details

County Ground from Chelmsford will host this match. This ground has a capacity of 6500 and has conducted a few international as well as domestic games so far.

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has not conducted any T20I match so far but is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch offers an equal advantage to batsmen as well as bowlers. But here the general trend is a captain prefers to chase in the limited-overs format. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first.

Essex have built a strong squad this season and have managed to perform well with the bat as well as bowl compared to kent’s squad. Kent are struggling to score runs this season and it will be a huge challenge for Kent’s batters to face Essex’s bowling unit on Tuesday. Essex have already defeated Kent this season and they will try to make that twice this season on the 7th of June.
 

We predict that Essex will defeat Kent.
