KENT vs ESS Betting Tips

  • Sam Billings scored 30 runs against Surrey’s strong bowling attack in the last game and he is our tip for Kent’ highest run scorer against Essex. Michael Logan has taken 2x five-wicket hauls in T20 cricket and the pace bowler is a strong choice for Kent’ top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • Michael Pepper hit 48 runs from 26 balls in the last game and he is our pick for Essex’ highest run scorer in this match. Sam Cook took 4-20 against Sussex Sharks on Tuesday and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Essex’ top wicket taker against Kent.
  • Sam Cook has gone wicketless in only one fixture in this year’s T20 Blast so far. He is our choice to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

Kent vs Essex Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 Blast 2023

Kent and Essex go head to head in the South Group of the 2023 T20 Blast on Wednesday evening in Canterbury. The Spitfires are in 7th place with two points from five matches. Essex are in 6th but only two points behind 2nd place with two points behind. Read on as we preview this game. The fixture begins at the St Lawrence Ground at 18:30 local time.

Kent have got a strong squad of players but they have underperformed this year as well as during last year’s campaign. It would be a big surprise if they were able to beat the Eagles in this clash.

Essex produced an excellent display on Tuesday evening and will fancy their chances of moving up the table once more with a win in Canterbury on Wednesday.

Kent Team News & Playing 11

KET Team News

Netherlands’ international bowler Fred Klaassen has returned to Kent’ squad for this game but it would be a surprise if he comes into the team. Michael Hogan and Kane Richardson are two very reliable pace bowlers and we do not expect them to be left out of the side.

KET Key Players

  • Sam Billings - The skipper has hit over 5100 T20 runs across his career and will be looking to make his 28th half-century in this format in this game.
  • Joe Denly - The vastly experienced top order batter is also a very useful spinner. He hit 27 runs and and took 1-23 from his four overs against Surrey.
  • Michael Hogan - Although the 42 year old went wicketless in the last game, he has already taken 2x three-wicket hauls for the Spitfires in this game.

KET Team Form

The Spitfires have lost four matches in a row in the T20 Blast and have lost their last two games by 5 wickets and 7 wickets.

There was one change for Essex ahead of their win over Sussex Sharks on Tuesday evening and it would be a surprise if there were any changes before this game. No new injuries were reported in the Essex squad after Tuesday’s victory.

  • Matt Critchley - There were some Essex supporters who were disappointed to see Critchley in the side against Sussex Sharks but he produced 25 not out with the bat and picked up 2-17.
  • Sam Cook - The right-arm medium fast bowler picked up a wicket with his second ball of the game on Tuesday and returned to dismiss two batters in the 19th over of the innings.
