Royal London One-Day Cup is quickly approaching the business end with teams doing their best to find the right balance and momentum going ahead. Both Middlesex and Kent are stranded at the bottom half of the points table currently and will need to move ahead to keep their qualification hopes intact. Middlesex are getting good momentum with 2 wins in their last 2 games and will look to continue their winning streak. Kent is yet to get their first victory this season and a loss in this match will end their campaign in the group stages itself.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex were off to a good start with Steve Eskinazi (45 runs) and Sam Robson (76 runs) building momentum but their middle order failed to capitalize as they collapsed from 154/3 to 190/8. Martin Anderson (42 runs) and Thilan Wallanwita (29 runs) scored vital late order runs to take them to 257 runs before being bowled out.
Middlesex bowlers successfully defended the target by 6 runs to hand their team their second consecutive win. James Harris (3 wickets) and Ethan Bamber (2 wickets) played a crucial role in powerplay and death overs while Luke Hollman controlled the middle overs with 4 wickets. Thilan Wallanwita kept one end tight with his bowling figures of 10-0-34-0 in the match.
Top players to bet on:
Sam Robson:
 Robson scored 76 runs off 81 balls with 9 boundaries and looked all set to take his team to a 280+ total. But his wicket triggered a collapse and he will look to bat till the end in this match to help his team post a big score.
Luke Hollman - Hollman had amazing figures of 10-0-56-4 to rattle the opposition middle order batsmen. He will look to control the middle overs effectively in this match too.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Eskinazi, Josh De Caires, Sam Robson, Peter Handscomb (c), Robbie White (wk), Jack Davies, Martin Andersson, Luke Hollman, James Harris, Thilan Walallawita, Ethan Bamber

Kent Preview

Kent were bowled out for 158 runs in the last match against Essex. Munsey top scored with 39 runs while Marcus O Riordian, T Muyeye, and Qadir came up with little 20+ cameos. No other batsmen made a telling contribution last night as 5 players were dismissed for single digit scores.
Kent bowlers have been giving runs at a higher economy rate so far and have claimed just 19 wickets in the 5 matches. Matt Milnes took the lone wicket to fall in the last game. Darren stevens, Qadri, and Nathan Gilchrist need to up their ante in this match to help his team restrict the opposition.
Top players to bet on:
Sam Robson: Robson has scored a 118 & 96 in the 5 matches played already and is looking to be in fine form. He will look to capitalise on his good form and continue scoring runs consistently for his team.
Matt Milnes-Milnes is the experienced bowler in their team and he needs to stand up with the ball to cause trouble to the batsmen. He has 3 wickets so far but is going for runs at over 6-7 RPO and is never restricting the run flow in middle overs. 

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Oliver Robinson (c & wk), Tawanda Muyeye, Harry Finch, George Munsey, Darren Stevens, Marcus O Riordan, Grant Stewart, Matt Milnes, Hamidullah Qadri, James Logan, Nathan Gilchrist

Weather Conditions

Radlett has dark and cloudy weather with 70-80% chances of rain on the match day.  We expect rain to play a big role in this game.

Venue Details

Radlett is a good pitch to bat on with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. Batsmen will look to score more runs on this track as no target will be safe at this venue. We expect scores around 280-300 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as 220+ target was almost chased in 36 overs in the last game played here and rain threat might bring DLS equation into the picture.

Middlesex is slowing gaining momentum and finding their feet at the right time. They will look to continue their winning streak in this match too with all-round performance from batting and bowling departments. Kent are having a nightmarish season as their bowlers were carted for 400+ runs in the opening match and they never really recovered from there on. Their batsmen too faltered in the last game to add to their woes. We expect Middlesex to take advantage of Kent`s low morale due to poor performances in this match.
