Betting Tips
  • Opener Daniel Bell-Drummond hit 58 boundaries in last year’s tournament and we are predicting him to be Kent’s highest run scorer against Somerset. With the ball, Matt Milnes was a consistent performer and he is our pick for Kent’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • There are plenty of explosive batters at the top of the order for Somerset and we expect Will Smeed to be their highest run scorer in this game. Marchant de Lange has excellent in T10 and other short format tournaments in recent years and he is well worth backing as Somerset’s top wicket taker against Kent.
  • Any breakthroughs in the Somerset top three will be crucial in this game. We expect Matt Milnes to do just that and to take the Player of the Match Award.

KET vs SOM Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 Blast 2022

We have a repeat of the 2021 Vitality Blast Final in the second game of this year’s tournament as Kent Spitfires take on Somerset on Wednesday evening in Canterbury. Kent Spitfires won the tournament last year to bring up their second Blast title. Somerset won the competition in 2005 but have finished as runners-up four times since. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at the St Lawrence Ground at 19:00 local time.

Kent Spitfires were deserved winners of the tournament last year and ended the season in fantastic form. With many of the same players to select from, we expect them to be buoyant ahead of the match.

Somerset never quite got going in the 2021 Final and they will use that as inspiration to right that wrong in this match. Expect a typical Somerset performance with players chipping in with bat and ball and strong fielding.

KET vs SOM Match Toss Prediction

Somerset won the toss and chose to bat first in the Final. With humidity levels likely to rise during the match, we expect both skippers to want to field first and not have to deal with the damper outfield conditions.

KET vs SOM Match Pitch Report

The surface in Canterbury is one which often gives a little bit of encouragement to the pace and spin bowlers. Expect a par score to be above 165 in this game.

Weather Report

The temperature will drift from 16 degrees to 14 degrees during the game with cloud cover from start to finish.

Kent Team News & Playing 11

KET Team News

Sam Billings’ side will be full of confidence ahead of this game and we expect them to field a very similar team to the one who beat Somerset in the final in mid-September last year. Back-up keeper Ollie Robinson is unavailable after  signing for Durham for the T20 Blast earlier this week.

KET Key Players 

  • Daniel Bell-Drummond- although he never got past 88 in one innings, the Kent opener hit six half-centuries across his 14 innings in the 2021 T20 Blast.
  • Sam Billings- the Kent skipper has an infectious enthusiasm for the game and wants to be involved in all parts of the match. He is an excellent keeper and a very strong attacking batter.
  • Matt Milnes- only Leicestershire’s Naveen-ul Haq took more wickets than Milnes during the T20 Blast last season. He picked up 22 wickets at an average of 15.40.

KET Team Form

Kent Spitfires finished last season with six wins from their last seven games. They are targeting their fourth successive victory in this match.

Kent Predicted Playing 11

Daniel Bell-Drummond, Zak Crawley, Jordan Cox, Joe Denly, Sam Billings (c) (wk), Jack Leaning,  George Linde, Darren Stevens, Fred Klaassen, Qais Ahmad, Matt Milnes

Somerset Team News & Playing 11

SOM Team News

The 2021 Runners-up will take the field with minimal changes to their XI from their defeat to Kent Spitfires last year. We expect new signing Rilee Roussow, who has plenty of experience in this country with Hampshire, to take their batting to another level.

SOM Key Players 

  • Will Smeed- the young English opener top scored for Somerset in their defeat in the final last year with 43 runs from 32 balls. He hit two fours and two sixes during the knock.
  • Tom Banton- the powerful opener has seen his progress checked a little over the last couple of years. However, he is still only 23 and he scored 107 not-out in this group stage fixture last season.
  • Marchant de Lange- the powerfully built South African pace bowler was one of the stars of the English white ball summer in 2021. He took 18 wickets in the run to the final in the 2021 T20 Blast.

SOM Team Form

Although Somerset were beaten in the final last year, they came into that match off the back of four successive victories.

Somerset Predicted Playing 11

Tom Banton (wk), Will Smeed, Rilee Roussow, Lewis Goldsworthy, Tom Abell (c), Tom Lammonby, Lewis Gregory, Jack Brooks, Craig Overton, Josh Davey, Marchant de Lange

KET vs SOM Top Team Batsmen

Daniel Bell-Drummond, Sam Billings, Joe Denly are our batting recommendations for Kent Spitfires. Bell-Drummond hit 492 runs in total in last season’s competition. Denly’s experience is vital for Kent and he has plenty of T20 know-how after stints in the PSL and the BBL.

Tom Banton, Tom Abell and Will Smeed are our batting tips for Somerset. Abell scored four half-centuries in the 2021 T20 Blast and has been rewarded with the captaincy for this year. 20 year old Smeed has all the innocence of youth and bats in a free and uncomplicated manner.

KET vs SOM Top Team Bowlers

For Kent Spitfires, Fred Klaassen, Qais Ahmed and Matt Milnes are our bowling tips. Ahmed took 2-19 in the final last year including the key wicket of new captain Tom Abell. Milnes was the only player in the tournament to pick up a 5-wicket haul in 2021.

For Somerset, Marchant de Lange, Josh Davey and Jack Brooks are our bowling tips. Davey took 13 wickets from eight games last year and he enhanced his reputation with some fine displays during the T20 World Cup for Scotland. Brooks has been in fine wicket taking form in the early rounds of the County Championship.

Kent vs Somerset Prediction

For all the pre-match talk of revenge from last year’s final, we expect Somerset to approach this game with a sensible mindset and to treat Kent Spitfires like any other opponent. We are predicting a very close game with Kent Spitfires doing enough to get over the winning line.

Final Verdict

Kent are favorites to beat Somerset at the odds of 1.80
