Host Sussex will be desperate to break their losing streak in the competition when they take on Kent in the North Group game at Hove on Sunday.

In their previous clash, Sussex suffered a comprehensive 41-run defeat at the hands of Gloucestershire. With this result, Sussex are lying at the bottom of the league table in the North Group.

On the other hand, Kent suffered back-to-back defeats in the competition and are also lying in the bottom half of the league table.

There have been 35 meetings between the teams in the history of the competition where Kent have registered fifteen victories. Sussex have managed to come out on top on twelve occasions. Seven matches have been abandoned, while one match has ended in a tie.

Sussex Preview

The county side will be keen to put in an improved bowling performance against Kent. In the previous game, the bowlers conceded a lot of runs against Gloucestershire. For Sussex, Pacer Steven Finn was the standout bowler on display and finished with figures of 2 for 15 in his four overs. Besides Finn, Rawlins claimed 1 for 27 in his three overs.

Chasing a mammoth 194 runs for victory, Mohammad Rizwan and Luke Wright got side off to a decent start, courtesy 52-run partnership.

For Sussex, wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan notched up a valiant half-century with the help of four fours and two sixes. Besides Rizwan, Josh Philippe scored 35 runs off 31 balls, whereas Luke Wright chipped in with 25 runs off 22 balls.

The middle and lower-order offered no resistance as the side lost their last seven wickets for just 18 runs. The team management will be hoping that the likes of Ravi Bopara, George Garton and Delray Rawlins can make decent contributions in this match.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Ravi Bopara (c), Delray Rawlins, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Josh Philippe, Luke Wright, George Garton, Harrison Ward, Will Beer, Archie Lenham, Henry Crocombe, Steven Finn
