Host Gloucestershire will be keen to put on a strong show when they take on Kent in the South Group of the Vitality T20 Blast competition played at County Ground in Bristol on Friday.

In the previous match, Gloucestershire suffered 34-run defeat at the hands of Surrey. Skipper Jack Taylor will be hoping that the side can learn from their mistakes and put in an improved performance with the bat in this home fixture.

On the other hand, Kent’s T20 campaign has got off to a worse possible start as the side suffered defeats in their first three matches. Captain Sam Billings will be hoping that the premier players can come to the party in this must-win game.

There have been 19 meetings between the teams in the history of the competition where Gloucestershire have registered ten victories. Kent have managed to come out on top on nine occasions.
