Match Preview

Vitality T20 Blast is up and running with the rains staying out of contention for the last couple of days. South Group has seen two tied matches and both these teams were action in those matches. We are in for a scintillating action with local players looking to make a mark in the absence of big international names. Kent failed to get 5 runs in their last over against Middlesex while Surrey failed to score 12 runs off their last 2 overs against Essex in their respective last matches. Both teams failed to close out match from a position of strength as the contest ended up as a tie. Both teams will be gutted of their results and will look to win this match and get their first victory on board.

Teams Preview

Kent Preview

Kent openers Zak Crawley (22* & 31) & Daniel Bell Drummond (72 & 28) have set the tone of the batting with attacking partnerships at the top. Jordan Sox, Alex Blake, and Jack Lenning scored crucial 20+ cameos to take them to 209 runs in the chase. Kent has one of strongest batting line-ups of the tournament.

Kent bowlers leaked runs at 10+ RPO barring Alex Blake and Imran Quayyum. They lack experience and must improve on their execution of their variations.  They have claimed just 8 wickets in their 40 overs so far.

Top players to bet on:

Daniel Bell Drummond – Drummond has scored 100 runs at a strike arte of 200+ opening the batting. He has smashed 13 boundaries and 5 sixes so far scoring nearly 80% of his runs in boundaries.

Fred Klassen – Fred Klassen has taken 4 wickets so far but has leaked runs at nearly 9 RPO. His bowling figures read as 2/20 & 2/50 in the two matches respectively.

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Zak Crawley (c), Daniel Bell-Drummond, Oliver Robinson (wk), Jack Leaning, Alex Blake, Jordan Cox, Grant Stewart, Calum Haggett, Matt Milnes, Imran Qayyum, Fred Klaassen

Surrey Preview

Surrey looked comfortable in the chase with their scorecard reading 87/2 in the 11th over. But mini-collapse lead them to 113/5 in 15th over. They failed to recover from there and failed to chase down 12 runs off the last 2 overs with 2 wickets falling in last two balls to end the match as a tie.   

Matt Dunn and Gus Atkinson bowled economically giving runs at less than 6 RPO and claimed a wicket each. Scott Borthwick took 2 wickets but gave 34 runs in his two overs. Gareth Batty and Daniel Boriarty failed to take wickets in the last match.

Top players to bet on:

Ben Foakes – Ben Foakes scored 44 runs off 37 balls in the chase but he will be dejected as he was dismissed when his team needed just 1 run off 2 balls. He will look to make a big score in this match and help his team win.

Gus Atkinson – Gus Atkinson has figures of 1/13 & 1/23 in the two matches so far. He will be vital bowler in the middle overs to restrict the run flow once the power play is completed.

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Gareth Batty (c), Gus Atkinson, Scott Borthwick, Rory Burns, Matt Dunn, Ben Foakes (wk), Will Jacks, Daniel Moriarty, Jamie Smith, Laurie Evans, James Taylor

Weather Conditions

Canterbury will have bright sunshine and clear skies on the match day as per the weather forecasters. We expect no rain interruptions.

Venue Details

Canterbury pitch is expected to slow down as the match progresses and both teams must look to score runs in the power play. Spinners may a vital role in this pitch due to its slow nature. We can expect scores around 150-160 runs in this match.  

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option in T20 matches nowadays and teams are comfortable chasing the total rather than setting one.

Winning Prediction

Surrey has a stronger bowling attack that is suitable for the conditions and are expected to test the batsmen at this venue. Kent has more attacking batsmen in their playing XI who can take away the match in matter of minute but struggles with their bowling attack. Surreys lacks big-hitters in their line-up and it may be a big disadvantage in T20s. We expect Kent to win this match considering their strong batting line-up but they will face stern test against Surrey bowlers.
