Host Kent will be desperate to end their winless streak when they take on Surrey in the South Group of the 2022 Vitality T20 Blast competition played at St. Lawrence Ground in Canterbury.

Defending Champions Kent have suffered four consecutive defeats so far this season. Captain Sam Billings will be hoping that the side can turn things around in this home fixture.

On the other hand, Surrey comfortably brushed aside Gloucestershire in a game played at The Oval. Skipper Chris Jordan will be hoping that the side can continue their winning streak in this contest.

There have been 37 meetings between the teams in the history of the competition where Surrey and Kent have registered 18 wins each. One game has ended in a no result.

Kent Preview

The Reigning Champions delivered a dismal batting performance against Gloucestershire and were bundled out for just 114 runs in 19.3 overs. The team management will be hoping that the side can make significant improvements with the bat against Surrey.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the likes of Joe Denly, Daniel-Bell Drummond, Jordan Cox, Sam Billings, Alex Blake and Jack Leaning to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the previous game, Jordan Cox was the lone warrior with the bat and finished the innings with the top-score of 48 runs off 47 balls with the help of four boundaries and one six. He was supported by Sam Billings, who chipped in with 22 runs off 18 balls with the help of three boundaries.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Qais Ahmed, Grant Stewart, Fred Klaassen, Matt Milnes and Georg Linde to provide crucial breakthroughs.

In the previous match, Grant Stewart was the pick of the bowlers for Kent and claimed 2 for 14 in his two overs.

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Sam Billings (c & wk), Daniel Bell-Drummond, Jack Leaning, Joe Denly, Jordan Cox, Alex Blake, George Linde, Grant Stewart, Qais Ahmad, Matt Milnes, Fred Klaassen

Surrey Preview

The county side managed to eke out a comfortable win against Gloucestershire in a low-scoring game played at The Oval. In the batting department, the side will be relying on openers Jason Roy, Will Jacks, all-rounder trio of Sam Curran, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine to deliver the bulk of the runs.

Defending 130 runs in 20 overs, the bowling unit delivered an excellent performance and dismissed Gloucestershire for 92 runs in 15 overs.
