Teams Preview

Kent Preview

Kent won their last match comfortably by 8 wickets. Zak Crawley was the star with the bat as he smashed his maiden century this season and guided his team in the 180+ run chase.  Joe Denly scored crucial 39 runs to build a 100-run partnership with Crawley in the middle.

Kent Bowlers Joe Denly, Imran Quayyum, and Fred Klassen picked up a wicket each and gave runs at just over 7-8 RPO in the previous match. Matt muilnes and Grant Stewart were taken for a lot of runs giving 40+ runs in their 4 overs.  

Top players to bet on:

Zak Crawley – Crawley scored 108* runs off 54 balls with 14 boundaries and 2 sixes last night. We expect him to continue to superb form with the bat in this match too.  

Imran Quayyum – Quayyum has beena vital cog in Kent`s bowling attack and he has taken 7 wickets so far this season. He will look to take more wickets in the middle overs to strangle the run flow.  

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

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

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex were left to chase a massive 220-runs last match. Steve Eskinazi started off in a brilliant fashion scoring 77 runs off 44 balls with 3 boundaries and 6 sixes. Josh Simpson and Joe Cracknell played vital cameos scoring some quick-fire 30s in the middle order. But they were eventually lost by 30 runs.

Their bowlers gave the highest score of this season giving away 218 runs in their 20 overs. Tom Helm picked up 2 wickets while Nathan Sowter and Tim Murtagh picked up one wicket each. All the six bowlers used gave runs at over 10 RPO in the match.  

Top players to bet on:

Steve Eskinazi – Eskinazi leads the batting charts of the tournament with 350 runs at a strike rate of 150+ with 24 boundaries and 16 sixes to his name so far. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat.

Tim Murtagh – Murtagh had bowling figures of 4-0-35-1 in the last match despite bowling in the power play in a high scoring contest. He picked up the wicket of Will Jacks to break the 101-run opening partnership in the match.

Weather Conditions

Canterbury is expected to have bright sunshine on the match day and we expect no weather interruptions whatsoever in this match.

Venue Details

Canterbury has a good balance between the bat and ball with the advantage slightly in the favor of bowlers. We can expect average scores around 150-170 runs on this pitch and anything above it will be a par score.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have won both the matches played here so far. We expect both captains to field first if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

Both teams scored big runs last match on the back of the big knocks from openers. Their middle orders too contributed with crucial cameos to take them to a good score. Bowling has been a worry for Middlesex as they gave 200 runs last match.  Kent has a superb batting unit to take advantage of the Middlesex bowlers. We expect Kent to win this match owing to their home conditions and good form leading into the match.

KENT WILL WIN THE MATCH IS OUR PREDICTION
