Gloucestershire on the other hand had a decent season although they did not make it to the top 4 in the points table. They won 6 matches out of 14 in the last season of the Vitality Blast and will look for way to improve their overall performance this year. They come into this match with a win in their previous match in the 2022 season.

Weather Conditions

The pitch will be a belter for the team batting first. There will be swing on offer for the new ball bowlers but once settled in the batters can make the bowlers life a living hell.

The weather seems great for a game of cricket. The temperatures will be around 18 degrees Celsius with very less chance of rainfall during the match.

Venue Details

The match between Kent and Gloucestershire will be played at the St Lawrence ground in Canterbury, England.

Toss: To Bat

This will be a good toss to win as according to past matches and records the team batting first has a higher number of wins in this ground. Which is why the team winning the toss will elect to bat first here.

This match will be very difficult to predict because this will be the first match that these two teams will be playing this season. However Kent have had a great home record which is why we predict that Kent will defeat Gloucestershire in this match.

We predict that Kent will defeat Gloucestershire.
