KENT vs GLOUCS Winning Prediction

Kent are in a roll with both their batting and bowling units performing well so far. Their bowlers have restricted the opposition and are performing well as a pack on their home conditions. Gloucestershire batting unit has good starts but have failed to 30-run mark barring Glenn Philips but have scored 170+ scores in both matches.
