Match Preview

Vitality T20 Blast is half-way through the league phase with every team facing each other in the first round-robin matches. Now, teams will face off each other for the second time and will look to get over the other teams and end in the top half of the points table. Kent and Sussex are placed in the top two positions of the points table currently in the South Group. Kent are in a three match winning streak currently and will look to continue their momentum in the league phase going ahead. Sussex on the other hand have won three of their four matches and losing their only match by a 1 run so far.  Both teams have been in good rhythm and form so far and we expect to have a cracking contest between two top quality teams.

Teams Preview

Kent Preview

Kent openers Zak Crawley (28 runs) and Daniel Bell Drummond (81 runs) gave yet another good start for the team with their 83-run opening partnership at the top. Alex Blake (53 runs) joined forces with Bell Drummond to share a 64-run partnership to keep the scoreboard moving at a good rate. Kent finished with a massive score of 192 runs last night.

Kent new ball bowlers Alex Blake and Matt Milnes were taken for a few runs early on in the powerplay but introduction of Imran Quayyum tilted the momentum in their favor as he picked up 3 quick wickets.  Fred Klassen, Tim Groenewald, and Grant Stewart chipped in with a wicket each at a decent economy rate to win the match comfortably by 29 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Daniel Bell Drummond – Drummond scored 81 runs off 45 balls to lead his team`s batting charge with two big partnerships with Crawley & Blake. He had a chance to score to century last night with almost 6 overs remaining when he got out.

Imran Quayyum – Quayyum closed the doors of the opposition in the chase as he picked up their first 3 wickets in the match. He ended with bowling figures of 4-0-25-3.

Sussex Preview

Sussex skipper Luke Wright was outstanding with the bat last night scoring 83 runs off 59 balls despite wickets falling around him at regular intervals. David Wiese (41 runs) joined Wright with scorecard reading 57/3 to put a massive 74-run partnership to take his team to a competitive total of 159//5 at the end of 20 overs. 

On the bowling front, Daniel Briggs and Tymal Mills picked up 2 wickets each and gave runs at nearly 6 RPO to never allow the upper hand to the opposition. Chris Jordan and Will Beer chipped in with a wicket each while George Garton and Ravi Bopara contributed with economical overs.

Top players to bet on:

Luke Wright – Luke Wright scored 83 runs with 7 boundaries and 2 sixes despite other top order batsmen struggling. He will look to continue his good form at the top with new partner Callum Mcleod.

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 batsmen. We can expect average scores around 160-180 runs on this pitch and anything above it will be a par score.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams batting second had the advantage in both the matches played here so far. We expect both teams to bat second if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

Both Kent and Sussex has very little to separate them in terms of form and momentum. Kent has a strong opening combination with in-form David Wiese to follow in batting. Sussex will miss Philip Salt due to his national commitments at the top. Sussex has a slightly better bowling attack when compared to Kent. But we expect Kent to win this match owing to their home conditions and unbeaten record so far.

KENT WILL WIN THE MATCH IS OUR PREDICTION
