Essex will take on Kent in the Group 2 contest of the English One day Cup 2021 on Sunday. After winning their first two matches in a convincing fashion, Essex crumbled for just 156 runs and lost their last match against Worcestershire by 182 runs. Adam Wheater’s 77 runs weren’t sufficient at all by any means. They are occupying the 4th spot in the Group 2 standings with 4 points.

Meanwhile, it has been a frustrating last week for Kent as two of their previous matches were abandoned due to rain. There are loads of injury concerns in the squad, as Heino Kuhn has been ruled with a groin injury for this game. Kent still waiting for their first win in this tournament. With 2 losses and 2 no results, they are currently placed at the 8th spot in the standings with 2 points.
