THE PREDICTION

This ‘Battle of the Bridge’ between Essex Eagles and Kent Spitfires is the first of a double header taking place at the Kia Oval for the benefit of television broadcasters. The Eagles may be reigning champions, but find themselves bottom of the South Group having not won a single Vitality Blast match thus far. Kent Spitfires meanwhile, are riding the crest of a wave after a dramatic one run win over Sussex at Hove, which moved them up above the Sharks into top spot. With confidence sky high within the Spitfires camp and an intimidating batting order which includes the likes of England red ball international Zak Crawley, Kent should have more than enough to defeat the champions here.
