Kent will be up against Somerset in a North Group T20 Blast fixture at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury on Monday.
Kent have been in solid form in the T20 Blast, winning six of their eight matches. They are currently second in the South Group standings, level on points with table-toppers Gloucestershire, who have played a game more. Kent, who beat Essex by 26 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method in their last outing, will start as slight favorites against Somerset.
With three wins, two losses and two washouts, Somerset are fourth in the South Group points table. Since losing their first two T20 Blast games, they are unbeaten, with Somerset heading into Monday’s fixture on the back of a seven-run win over Hampshire. The Lewis Gregory-led side will be looking to continue their good run of form when they lock horns with Kent.
With both teams eager to extend their winning momentum and move up the table, we are in for a thrilling T20 Blast game on Monday.
