Preview

Kent and Somerset have had two totally different runs in the tournament thus far. Kent have experienced a magnificent run in the Vitality T20 Blast tournament so far and has won all the three matches that they have played.

Captaincy Picks for SOM vs KET

Jack Leaning

Jack Leaning was in red hot form in Kent’s encounter against Gloucestershire. He scored a sparkling 81* and scored his runs at a strike rate of close to 160. If Leaning can once again find his mojo, he will take the game away from the opposition.

Tom Abell

Tom Abell scored a brilliant 44-ball 69 in Somerset’s previous match. His blitzkrieg allowed the Somerset outfit to post a competitive total of 187/6 on the board. Abell can score runs in a jiffy and if he gets his eye in, there will surely be problems for the opposition.
