THE LOWDOWN

Surrey’s 11-run defeat away to the Kent Spitfires means they have won just one of their last four matches as the home team are struggling to break into the top four. They look a very average side without their England white-ball players Jason Roy and the Curran brothers. They come up against a Kent Spitfires side that will be without Zak Crawley due to his emergency call-up to the England white-ball series against Pakistan. Regardless of that, the Spitfires have been in good form having risen to the top of the South group as they inch towards qualification.

THE PREDICTION

This match is at a ground where it could be a high-scoring encounter but regardless of that it shouldn’t affect the overall outcome. Kuhn, Bell-Drummond, Robinson, Leaning and Stevens remains a Kent batting lineup that should be too strong for a Surrey team that have underperformed across all formats over the last couple of years. This should be an away win.
