Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Bob Willis Trophy 2020 - Kent vs Sussex - Round 2
Round 2 match of the Bob Willis Trophy 2020, which takes the place of the County Championship 2020, will be played between Kent and Sussex at St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury.
Kent were edged out by Essex by just two wickets in their last match. Heino Kuhn scored a impressive century for them in the first innings, getting dismissed for 140 off 248 deliveries as Ollie Robinson also contributed with 78.
That they were bowled out for just for 112 in their 2nd innings is what cost them the match. Only four of their batsmen could reach double figures in the second innings out of which Jordan Cox top scored with 29.
No credit can be taken away from their bowlers though who did a decent job with Matt Milnes picking up 4 wickets in the second innings while Ivan Thomas took a 4-wicket haul in the last innings.
Sussex won their last match against Hampshire by 94 runs. Philip Salt and George Garton scored half-centuries for the team in the first innings but they could not manage anything more than 176.
Salt was their top scorer again in the 2nd innings with a 134-ball 80 which set Hampshire a decent target of 244.
Ollie Robinson, who picked up three wickets in the first innings, did the job again with a 5-wicket haul while bowling at an economy of 2.10 to take the team to victory. Jack Carson contributed with three wickets in the second innings.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Sussex - Philip Salt, Tom Haines, Harry Finch, Tom Clark, Ben Brown (c & wk), Delray Rawlins, George Garton, Ollie Robinson, Jack Carson, Henry Crocombe, Mitchell Claydon
