We are in the final stages of the league games in the Vitality T20 Blast 2021. There is intense competition underway in the South Group and this would make this game very interesting. Kent Spitfires have nearly booked a place for themselves in the quarterfinals after their win against Surrey in the last game. Surrey on the other hand must win this game to keep their hopes alive to finish within Top 4.
Surrey has done well with the bat this season, but it is their bowling attack that has let them down in most of the games played so far. They are up against a formidable batting line-up against whom they lost the last game. It will be interesting to see if Surrey is able to defeat Kent Spitfires in this game as this will be a huge confidence booster for them.
Gareth Batty’s side needs to pull up its socks after the poor show with the ball against Kent Spitfires in the last game. The side is currently sitting in the 4th place on the points table and shall have to win this game to retain its spot. They would be up against a massive challenge and Batty will have to inspire confidence in the side for this game.
Will Jacks played a blinder in the last game and shall have to put up a good show with Jamie Smith in this game. Laurie Evans also comes here after scoring runs in the last game and shall focus on building partnerships with Ollie Pope, Kylie Jamieson and Jamie Overton. In Rory Burns and Jordan Clark they have good depth in their batting line-up.
It is the bowling attack that has let the side down in most games so far. Will Jacks and Overton did well in the last game but the rest of the attack leaded runs. Jamieson will have to play a very important role here for the side to won. Tight spells would also be expected from Gus Atkinson and Daniel Moriarty as they are up against a very strong batting line-up in this game.

Daniel Bell-Drummond’s side has had a brilliant season so far and with seven wins in 11 games they have already made it to the next round. The side comes here after a 11-run win against Surrey in their previous game. As they take on the same team in the upcoming game the side would feel confident. Bell-Drummond would want his side to win this game and gather momentum before the knockout games.
The side would miss the services of Zak Crawley who has been selected for the national side and hence Daniel Bell-Drummond will need to provide a good start along with Joe Denly. In the middle order the side would expect runs from Jack Leaning and Jordan Cox who come here after a good show. The likes of Alex Blake, Darren Stevens and Sam Billings would have to do well in this game down the order.
Their bowlers went for runs in the last game and tight spells would be expected with the new ball from Adam Milne and Joe Denly. Fred Klaassen has been expensive, and the side would need good show from him in this game. In Matt Milnes, Qais Ahmad and Darren Stevens would have to play the supporting act well in this game.

The skies over London would be mostly clear with bit of clouds on July 9. The track here has been a good one to bat on and we have seen good score being put up here on this surface. Bowlers have little room for error in this game. The side that bats first here would need 180 runs on the board to feel safe.
Kennington Oval, London is a batting friendly ground thought there is something on the surface for the bowlers early in the game. The ball comes onto the bat nicely allowing batsmen to free their arms. Spinners have done well in this surface as the odd ball can grip and turn.
In the four completed games at this venue so far in the season the side chasing the score has gone on to win all the games. The batting conditions have been superb and setting up a score here is a big challenge. Hence, we expect to see the side winning the toss to opt for bowling first.
Surrey would be under pressure going into this game. They lost to Kent in the last game and playing at home they can’t afford another loss. Their bowlers will need to rise to the challenge in this game after the poor show in the last one. Kent Spitfires on the other hand look to have covered all their bases and have been in great form throughout the season. This will give them the edge in this game.
