Match Preview

Both Middlesex and Kent played the first half of their matches before rain brought the game to halt. Middlesex qualified for the knockouts last year but failed to make it to the business end as they lost in the quarter-finals. Kent on the other hand failed to qualify for the knockouts. Both teams will be eager to get their first win on board and they have fight against their uninvited guest rains in this match.

Kent Preview

Kent openers looked in sublime form scoring 52 runs off just 4.1 overs before rain came to halt the play. Zak Crawly (22* runs) and Daniel Bell-Drummond (28* runs) scored runs at over 175+ strike rate.  They were unlucky as 5 more balls would have yielded a result to the game and most probably would have been in their favor by DLS method.

Pacers Matt Milnes and Fred Klassen plummeted the opposition to 28/3 at the end of power play. They ended with combined figures of 8-0-39-5 while the other bowlers gave runs at 9 RPO barring Imran Qayyum who was economical with the ball.

Top players to bet on:

Zak Crawley – Zak Crawley showed his rich vein of form in his shirt stay scoring 22 runs off just 9 balls. He hit 5 boundaries to score at a strike arte of 200+ easily.

Matt Milnes – Milnes draw the first breakthrough in his first over itself dismissing Tom Alsop. He then came back to dismiss both the players who build a 70-run partnership in the middle overs. He ended with match figures of 4-0-19-3.   

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

London has 40% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters and we expect it won’t make a big impact in the game. We may see a shortened game due to reduction of overs due to inclement weather.  

Venue Details

Lord`s is expected to have a good balance between the bat and ball usually. Pacers might enjoy a bit of swing early on due to the overcast conditions mainly. We can expect average scores in the range of 160-170 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option with bad weather and DLS equation threatening to make an appearance any time. Teams batting first will be under pressure not to lose wickets at any time.  

Winning Prediction

We witnessed only very little to analyze the complete performance of the teams. Kent was agonizingly close to win the game with less than an over to be bowled. Kent bowlers restricted the opposition to less than 140 and scored 50+ runs in just 4.1 overs. Middlesex put on a dominating show with the bat scoring 180+ runs. Their bowlers were in the park for just 2 overs. We expect Kent to win this match owing to their all-round showing in the first match.

KENT WILL WIN THE MATCH IS OUR PREDICTION
