T20 Blast season started off in early June and the group stages went on till mid of July after which the tournament took the first break in schedule with the hundred coming into the picture. They later resumed in late august for quarterfinal matches and once again went stale for nearly a month. Now, we are all set to witness the two semi-finals and finals on the same day to witness the climax of T20 blast on the same day. Teams will be without the services of their foreign players and England national player owing to other commitments. Sussex and Kent will face off in the second semi-final match.

Sussex Preview

Sussex top-3 of Luke Wright (360 runs), Philip Salt (293 runs), and Ravi Bopara (237 runs) have been their main scorers this season so far. Delray Rawlins and Aaron Thomason will have a huge role in middle order with David Wiese, Rashid Khan, Chris Jordan, and George Garton not available for this match.  

Tymal Mills will be their pace spearhead with 14 wickets so far and Ollie Robinson might be available for this match. Archie Lenham (9 wickets) and Will Beer (11 wickets) will take care of the spin department. Their bowling is hugely hit by a lot of missing all-rounders.

Top players to bet on:

Luke Wright – Wright has scored 360 runs at a strike rate of 153 with 4 fifties and scalped 7 wickets at an economy rate of 6.76 RPO this season so far. He will be their vital player to provide balance with the bat and ball in this match.

Tymal Mills – Mills has been selected in the England`s T20I World Cup squad after his impressive performances in the T20 matches. He has 14 wickets in this season and is very impressive with his cutters and slower balls.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Philip Salt (wk), Luke Wright (c), Ravi Bopara, Delray Rawlins, Harrison Ward, Oliver Carter, Mitchell Claydon, Ollie Robinson, Will Beer, Tymal Mills, Archie Lenham

Kent Preview

Kent openers Zak Crawley (330 runs) and Daniel Bell-Drummond (394 runs) have scored runs at a strike rate of 150+ at the top and set the platform for middle order trio of Joe Denly (210 runs), Jack leaning (294 runs), and Jordan Cox (309 runs) to continue the onslaught in middle overs. Sam Billings is unavailable in the squad owing to IPL commitments.

Pacers Matt Milnes (18 wickets) and Fred Klassen (14 wickets) lead their bowling attack with the bulk of wickets so far. Darren Stevens (9 wickets), Grant Stewart (8 wickets), Joe Denly (8 wickets), and Jack leaning (7 wickets) will have a huge role to play in the middle overs. Adam Milne and Qais Ahmed will not be available for this games.

Top players to bet on:

Daniel Bell Drummond – Bell Drummond has 392 runs at a strike rate of 156 with 5 fifties to his name in this season so far. We expect to set the tone of their batting with yet another big score in this match too.

Matt Milnes – Milnes leads their wicket charts with 18 scalps so far and he was the star performer in the quarterfinals with figures of 4/24 against Warwickshire recently.

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Weather Conditions

Birmingham is expected to have a bright and sunny with just 20% chances of rain as per the forecasters. We expect rain to make no appearance in this game.

Venue Details

Edgbaston is expected to sport a new track which has a good bounce and carry on it. The ball might fly of the bat through the outfield and we can expect a run feast of 170-190 runs on this track. Bowlers might find some assistance with the new ball especially.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has a 4-2 win-loss record at this venue this season and chasing can be tough in these big matches and both captains might opt to bat first in this match.

Sussex is more affected of the 2 teams with a big chunk of their bowling all-rounders missing from their squad while Kent will miss their captain Billings and foreign bowlers. Kent has a strong batting unit with vital contributions from middle order while Sussex rely heavily on their top-3. Kent has good bowling attack with good mix of pace and spin while Sussex will have to field a couple of new players from the quarter final in this match. We expect Kent to win this match.

Kent will the match and go to the finals
