Match Preview

Vitality T20 Blast is entering the last week of group games with the last 3-4 matches remaining for each team. Kent are currently placed third in the points table and will look to win this match and go ahead in the points table that is so closely packed between the top three sides. Kent`s 3-match winning streak came to an end with their loss against Sussex last night.  Hampshire on the other hand are currently reeling at the fifth place and they need to win matches consistently to qualify for the knockouts. Kent will look to further strengthen their position in the table while Hampshire will look to move ahead and keep their qualification hopes alive.

Teams Preview

Hampshire Preview

Hampshire failed to chase down 142 runs and ended up losing their third match on a row. Tom Alsop (43 runs) and James Fuller (34 runs) shared a 71-run partnership to keep in their team in the chase. All the other batsmen failed to cross double digit mark and they were bowled out for just 123 runs.

The bowling unit performed well as a team and restricted the opposition to just 142 runs. Mason Crane took 2 wickets while Ryan Stevenson, Shaheen Afridi, and Chris Wood chipped in with a wicket each. Ryan Stevenson was the expensive bowler as he gave away 35 runs in his 4 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Tom Alsop – Tom Alsop scored 43 runs off 41 balls with 2 boundaries and a six. He has been scoring 30s & 40s in all the matches so far at the top and we expect him to continue his good form and put a big score in this match.

Mason Crane – Mason Crane has been their best bowler this season and he had figures of 2/20 in the last match. He has 7 wickets at an economy rate of 5.17 RPO so far.

 

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Alsop, James Vince (c), Sam Northeast, Joe Weatherley, James Fuller, Lewis McManus (wk), Ian Holland, Chris Wood, Ryan Stevenson, Mason Crane, Shaheen Afridi

Kent Preview

Kent`s batting unit scored a below-par 141 runs in their 20 overs last night. Their top-4 batsmen got starts but failed to capitalize and make a big score. They collapsed for 104/3 in 12 overs to just 141/8 in 20 overs. Joe Denly top scored with 32 runs while Heino Kuhn and Bell-Drummond came up with 20+ cameos at the top.

Their bowling unit did not put any fight in the chase as they lost by 8 wickets and 5 overs remaining. Fred Klassen, Imran Quayyum, and Callum Heggett were taken for a lot of runs and failed to put pressure on the opposition. Kent gave away 160+ runs in all their matches so far.  

Top players to bet on:

Joe Denly – Denly`s return will be a big boost for the team in the batting line-up. He scored 32 runs off 17 balls and then came back to bowl a decent spell of 3-0-19-1 in the match. Denly will look to make a big score in this match.

Imran Quayyum –Imran Quayyum will be the lead spinner in the team and he will have a big role to play in this match owing to the slow track on offer. He has 5 wickets at an economy rate of nearly 8 RPO this season.

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Daniel Bell-Drummond (c), Zak Crawley, Joe Denly, Heino Kuhn, Alex Blake, Jack Leaning, Jordan Cox (wk), Grant Stewart, Calum Haggett, Imran Qayyum, Fred Klaassen

Weather Conditions

Southampton weather looks bright and sunny with no chances of rain as per the weather forecasters and we expect no rain interruption in this match.

Venue Details

Southampton pitch is on the slower side and batsmen find it hard to score runs here. Spinners may a vital role on this pitch. We can expect scores around 140-160 runs in this match. 

 

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to slow down a little in the second innings considerably.  We expect both teams to bat first if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

Kent relies heavily on their top order to put runs on board and they have made 190+ scores this season. Hampshire has been struggling with the bat big time and Tom Alsop has been the only consistent player so far. Hampshire has a slightly better bowling attack than the Kent on paper.  But we expect Kent to win the match as they have form, momentum and quality batsman to take on the Hampshire bowling attack effectively.

KENT WILL WIN THE MATCH
