Surrey CCC vs Kent Spitfires Preview

  • With 19 points after 12 games, Surrey is at the top of the standings.
  • With 6 points from 12 games, Kent holds the wooden spoon and will finish their campaign in the league stage.
  • In their first meeting this season, Surrey defeated Kent by 32 runs.

 

In the 2022 Vitality Blast, Kent Spitfires will play Surrey. On Friday, July 1st, the match will begin at 18:30 local time at The Kia Oval in London.

When Surrey lost to Essex Eagles in Chelmsford last Friday by 43 runs, it was the first time they had ever been defeated in any competition. Despite the return of Jason Roy at the top of the order and Reece Topley with the new ball, both of whom had played for England in the 3-0 ODI victory over the Netherlands, the 43 run defeat still occurred. Despite being defeated by the Eagles, Surrey continues to hold the top spot in the South Group. Surrey has already secured a spot in the quarterfinals with 19 points from 12 games and a seven point lead over fifth-place Gloucestershire.

Last Friday, Kent Spitfires defeated Sussex Sharks in Canterbury for just their third victory of the year. With six points from 12 games, the 2021 T20 Blast Champions are at the bottom of the South Group. They won’t go to the competition’s knockout round with a certainty, but they might still place as high as sixth if they win their last matches in a row. Grant Stewart took 3-38 against the Sharks, and George Linde returned very good figures of 2-14 from 4 overs as the visiting team was held to 158-8. In response, Joe Denly scored 58 at the top of the order before being followed home by Sam Billings (43) and Linde (24).
