Kent Spitfires are amongst the leading teams in the Vitality Blast South Group, however,Essex Eagles Head Coach Anthony McGrath still thinks that his team can reach the knock out stages.

“Things can turn around quickly in T20 cricket and with 8 matches to go, there are still a lot of points to play for” he said. “Having said that, we are probably looking at winning 5 or maybe 6 of our remaining matches so that’s going to be tough but it can be done.
