So let’s have a look at the Match Details and Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions.
Kent Spitfires v Lancashire Lightning Spitfire St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury 7:00 PM
Four batsmen have all posted between 300 and 400 runs in captain Sam Billings, Joe Denly, Daniel Bell-Drummond and South African Heino Kuhn. Joe Denly has also taken 19 wickets with his leg-spinners, and the ex-England limited overs man has become a genuine all-rounder in white ball cricket in recent years. Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been named in a 15-man Kent squad having missed the last four group games with a hamstring injury.
Jos Buttler and Keaton Jennings return from England duty and strengthen what was already a great all round Vitality Blast squad.
