Kent continue to languish right at the bottom of the South Group table and now have no hopes of qualifying for the next round. They just have 4 points from 11 matches at a poor net run rate of -0.656. They next face Sussex who they have already lost to earlier this season. Sussex haven’t had the greatest of seasons either and are 7th on the table with 8 points from 11 matches at a net run rate of -0.361. They will be targeting a big win in this game to move up a few places.

Kent Preview

Kent haven’t been able to register back-to-back victories this season and keep on maintaining a losing streak. After starting the season by losing 6 matches in a row, they have now lost their last 3 matches. Their last match was against Gloucestershire where they fell short by 5 runs while chasing a target of 196.

Kent’s problem has been that their batting has mostly revolved around Joe Denly (358 runs at a strike rate of 120.94) and Jordan Cox (292 runs at 130.35). They needed another aggressive batter in the middle but sadly, the batting unit has led them down. The only batter in their lineup with a strike rate of over 150 is George Linde but he too had a poor season and managed only 163 runs.

Kent’s bowling hasn’t been that great either. Grant Stewart has 10 wickets but he’s gone at an economy of 9.40. Afghanistan leg-spinner Qais Ahmad has done a good job, picking up 8 wickets at 7.39. But it’s too much for him to deliver every time.  
 

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Joe Denly, Tawanda Muyeye, Jordan Cox, Sam Billings (c & wk), Jack Leaning, Alex Blake, Grant Stewart, Qais Ahmad, Matt Milnes, Matthew Quinn, Jaskaran Singh

Sussex Preview

Sussex will be brimming with confidence after handing table-toppers Surrey their first loss of the season. After batting first at the County Ground in Hove, Sussex posted 172-5 and won the match by 17 runs. The return of Mohammad Rizwan at the top immediately changed their fortunes as the Pakistani wicket-keeper batter top-scored with a fluent 48 off 32 balls. An in-form Rizwan can help them get a few wins under their belt before the end of the season. 

Middle-order batter Tom Alsop will be another one in focus as he’s the leading run-getter for Sussex this season with 313 runs at a strike rate of 157.28. Sadly, there’s not much else to look forward to in their batting unit.

Sussex’s bowling has been led by fast bowler Tymal Mills this year who has 15 wickets in his kitty at an economy of 9.47. Steven Finn (14 wickets at 8.72) has been pretty consistent too and the addition of star leg-spinner Rashid Khan has bolstered their bowling unit considerably. 
 

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Alistair Orr, Tom Alsop, Ravi Bopara (c), George Garton, Delray Rawlins, Harrison Ward, Rashid Khan, Henry Crocombe, Tymal Mills, Steven Finn

Weather Conditions

The pitch at St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury is really good for batting. The wicket does slow down a bit towards the second half and seamers and spinners can get some help then, but batters should have a great time here again.

The weather at Canterbury is expected to be a little windy but clear. 
 

Venue Details

The average batting total by the team batting first at the St Lawrence Ground is 176. Totals over 180 have already been scored 5 times on the venue this season in 5 matches with the highest being 195-4 by Kent.

Toss: To Bat

Of the 5 matches played on this venue this season, 3 have been won by the team batting first. The side winning the toss in this match is likely to bat first.

Sussex have won 3 of the last 4 completed matches they have played against Kent. They have already beaten them once this season and will start as favorites for this match as they would be riding high on confidence after taking down Surrey. Their batting and bowling have been in much better shape as compared to Kent and they should be dominating them again.

Back Kent to win this match.
