THE LOWDOWN

Whilst Middlesex fell to their first red ball defeat of the season against Hampshire, Kent couldn’t have responded any better to defeat in their opening Bob Willis Trophy match against Essex, as they smashed Sussex by an innings and 25 runs within three days. The match saw Kent set an all-time record batting partnership for the club, with Jordan Cox and Jack Leaning putting on 423 for the second wicket and recording a first innings score of 530 for the loss of just one wicket. Both Cox and Leaning recorded unbeaten double centuries.

THE PREDICTION

Kent will be absolutely brimming with confidence after such a crushing win last time out and will be looking to back that up here. The difference between the two sides is stark when you compare batting line-ups and Kent have also rotated their bowlers to good effect so far this season. With home advantage factored in, the hosts will be confident of securing a second win on the bounce here, weather permitting.
