T20 Blast is picking up momentum in the league phase with every team trying to find their right balance and combination. Every team is fighting hard for the 2 crucial points in the table. Kent is having a horror run in this season so far as they have lost all the 5 matches played so far. They need to win this match as every loss pushes team to a point of no-return in the qualification race. Middlesex suffered their first loss in their last game against Sussex after hat-trick of wins. They will look to return to winning ways against struggling Kent in this match.

Kent Preview

Kent failed to chase down 159 runs as they ended with below par 127/9 in their 20 overs. Joe Denly was the only player to make a substantial score with 44 runs in the match. Sam Billings, George Linde, Jordan Cox, and Jack leaning have struggled for consistency in the season and will hope for big runs in this match.

Fred Klassen and Alex Stewart picked up 2 each but went for runs at 10+RPO. Matt Milnes, Qais Ahmed, and George Linde bowled economically with combined figures of 11-0-71-1 in the match. Their bowling unit fared better as they restricted the opposition to 158/6 in their 20 overs last night.

Middlesex Preview

Steve Eskinazi (31 runs) and Joe Cracknell (68 runs) gave a good start to the team at the top order but their middle order kept losing wickets at regular intervals as they failed to capitalize the good start. Chris Green`s 11-ball 22 runs took them to 163 runs before being bowled out in 19.4 overs.

Jason Behrendoff and Chris Green picked up a wicket each and restricted the run flow effectively in the last game. Matt Milnes and Martin Andersson picked up 3 wickets between them but went for runs at 10+RPO. Their bowlers have been very inconsistent and needs to pressurize the opposition as a unit.

Top players to bet on: Steve Eskinazi, Chris Green, Joe Cracknell

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Eskinazi (c), Max Holden, Joe Cracknell, Martin Andersson, Jack Davies, John Simpson (wk), Luke Hollman, Chris Green, Toby Roland-Jones, Thilan Walallawita, Jason Behrendorff

Weather Conditions

Canterbury is expected to have a partly cloudy weather with just 60-70% chances of rain on the match day. We expect to have a full match with little weather interruptions.

Venue Details

Canterbury pitch was on the slower side and the ball stopped and come onto the bat. Batters must settle down before taking on the bowlers. Batsmen need to apply themselves before dominating the bowlers in this match. We expect the average scores around 150-160 runs.

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is slowing down as the match progresses and teams will opt to bat first as batting becomes difficult in the second innings considerably.  But, if rain makes an appearance during the start captains might prefer to chase the total.

Middlesex has a strong batting line-up with experienced players but rely heavily on their top-3 to make the majority of the runs. They also have a good bowling attack with many options in their playing XI. Kent batting unit needs to find solidity and play consistently to chase down the total in this match. Their bowling has been performing well and needs to further tighten the screw on the opposition. We expect Middlesex to win this match.
