The T20 Blast is always closely contested and that is one of its highlights. We have already seen two matches being tied and a couple of last-ball finishes to start off the tournament already. Kent and Surrey, the two teams competing in this match were both involved in a tied match in their previous outings. Both Kent and Surrey would have felt that they had a win on the platter but had to settle for a tie.
It will be interesting to see which team can use that experience and improve to win this match.
Kent vs Surrey T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at St. Lawrence Ground, Canterbury on the 1st of September 2020.
Kent played its previous match against Middlesex in which it was pretty poor with the ball. The conditions for the bowlers were not easy but a bit more was expected from their attack. Fred Klaassen picked up two wickets but gave away 50 runs in his four overs. Imran Qayyum was the only bowler to have some sort of control over the run-rate.
The batting was a lot more impressive, though, almost every single batsman got in the runs. Zak Crawley, Daniel bell-Drummond, and Jordan Cox form a very strong top-3 that can score freely and consistently.
Crawley is full of confidence after his 267 in the test against Pakistan and looked at complete ease in the previous match. A big score does not seem too far away.
With Alex Blake and Jack Leaning also scoring some runs, the Kent batting lineup looks stronger than Surrey’s to us.
The challenge is going to be getting the bowling together for Kent.
Zak Crawley, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Heino Kuhn, Alex Blake, Jack Leaning, JM Cox, Grant Stewart, Matt Milnes, Fred Klaassen, Imran Qayyum, Tim Groenewald.
Surrey was the bottom of the South Group in the T20 Blast 2019 edition and we don’t think things have improved too much. A lot of their first-choice players are missing and the T20 side is looking pretty vulnerable.
A good bowling performance from the likes of Scott Borthwick, Gareth Batty, and Matt Dunn saw Surrey restrict Essex to just 143. That should have been chased down easily but was eventually tied. Will Jacks, Ben Foakes, and Laurie Evans are the batsmen that will lead the Surrey charge.
We don’t think Roy Burns is a natural T20 player but his international experience is going to count for something as well.
There is not enough depth in this Surrey side in any aspect. A couple of decent bowlers but nothing much to all upon. The same with the batting. Any opponent will know that Surrey can fall back in the game at any time and that is not a good position to be in.
Hashim Amla, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Ben Foakes, Rory Burns, Scott Borthwick, Gus Atkinson, Gareth Batty, Daniel Moriarty, R Topley, Matt Dunn.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first.

A beautiful day for cricket has been forecast in Canterbury on match day. There is no rain predicted and we should be able to enjoy a full match without any interruptions. The previous match at this venue was rained out so we don’t know how the pitch is this season. In general, though, Canterbury will serve up a good batting pitch with a little bit in there for the fast bowlers as well.
With the outfield dry, the ball will ace to the boundary and provide us with a potential high-scoring match.
Bet on Kent to win this match. They have a stronger batting lineup and are going to be playing in home conditions. Surrey is a dangerous team but we cannot see it being consistently successful with this kind of lineup.
Bet on Kent to win.
