Middlesex (MID) vs Kent (KET)

 

A thrilling match on the cards

 

In one of the 3 matches being played in the South Group of T20 Blast 2020, Middlesex takes on Kent at St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury. Middlesex which is at No.4 in the South Group has managed only two victories so far. Now they need to win all the reaming games and a lot of results have to go in their favour in order to earn a spot in the Quarterfinals. On the other hand, Kent is well within the race for quarterfinals as they won 4 out of 7 matches played so far. Both sides rely heavily on their top order to get the job done. So the side which makes an early breakthrough will have the upper hand as both sides have good bowling units. When these two sides met earlier in the season, it was a cracker of a game as the encounter ended in a tie.

Pitch Report

 

Canterbury is known to produce sporting games as it offers enough assistance for everyone. The average score of first innings here is around 150 in the past few seasons. So picking a balanced team with equal batting and bowling options is the way to go here.

 


Must have players

 

Stephen Eskinazi

He is the top run-scorer for Middlesex in the season where he has come up with consistent performances throughout the season. His consistency in the tournament makes him the top pick of the match. He has a PPM of almost 70 in the tournament.

 

Zak Crawley

He is continuing his good form in the season. He has been among the runs in the test series against Pakistan and he has just transferred the form into the T20 format. He has a PPM of 61 and an MDTA of 1.5 in the tournament.

 

Steven Finn

He is among the top wicket-takers of the season and one among the consistent performers for Middlesex. Apart from a couple of games, he has chipped in with at least a wicket or two in every match played so far.

 


X factor players / Big bets

 

Daniel Bell Drummond

He is our big bet for the match given how he has performed in the tournament. He gets going big when he is on song but in the other times, he was dismissed for a low score. Since he had scored comparatively lower in the last two games we expect something big from him in this match.

 


Notable Misses

 

Nathan Sowter

He has been handy for Middlesex in the middle overs throughout the tournament with his leggies. But given Hollman offers the same and also scored some handy runs we excluded Sowter in our SL team.
