Kent Spitfires are favorites to win
South Group high-flyers Kent Spitfires will look to get back to winning ways when they take on struggling Hampshire in the latest 2020 Vitality T20 Blast fixture. The match, at the Ageas Bowl, takes place on September 14 and the live action starts at 14:00 local time.
The Spitfires had won three and tied one of their first four completed games but suffered an eight-wicket defeat to Sussex Sharks last time out. That was despite good all-round form from England reject Joe Denly on his return to county action.
Hampshire were bowled out for just 123, chasing 143 to beat Middlesex in their most recent game, however – a fourth defeat in five completed games so far this season. They are well off the pace in the South Group as a result.

Kent Spitfires suffered a first defeat last time out, but with Joe Denly back in their ranks and in previously good form, they can make sure it is just one loss. Hampshire, on the other hand, have just one win to their name so far and are outsiders for this game.
