On July 2, 2023, Somerset and Kent will face off in match 125 of the Vitality Blast 2023 at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. This is the conclusion of the league stage clash between table-topper Somerset and Kent, currently ranked fourth, ahead of the quarterfinals.

Somerset comfortably settled at the top with 11 wins out of their 13 games. Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Tom Banton's brilliance at the top of the order underpinned Somerset's success this season. Both have crossed the 400-run mark with impressive striking power to make a significant impact on their wins. In their last five games this season, they had four opportunities to chase down the targets, and they succeeded three times. Their average wicket loss per game is 5, which is a decent rate. In the same period, their bowlers picked up an average of 9.2 wickets per game, which kept them at the top of the points table. Therefore they will look to continue this winning momentum before heading into quarter finals.

Kent, on the other hand, must win their last clash in the league stage to keep their hopes alive for the quarter-finals. Considering their recent form, where they secured four wins out of the last five games, it is expected that they will come hard against the table-toppers to seal a spot in the quarterfinals. Daniel Bell-Drummond's magnificent show this season at the top allowed him to accumulate nearly 600 runs to take his side across the finish line in crucial stages. Similar to Somerset, Kent chased down the targets successfully in their recent face-offs. Added to that, their average wicket loss per game is just 3.4 in the last five games, reflecting their solid performance with the bat. Therefore, this team will try to achieve a clinching victory.
