Essex Eagles have the opportunity of avenging a recent comprehensive defeat by Kent Spitfires when the two teams clash in the next chapter in the Battle of the Bridge.

In the Vitality Blast fixture at Canterbury last Sunday, the Spitfires took the honours with a 67 run victory, the winning margin underlining their all-round superiority on the day. Now back under the lights at The Cloudfm County Ground, the Eagles will be on a mission to turn the tables on their old adversaries.

Since that meeting at the St. Lawrence Ground 6 days ago, the Eagles have beaten both Surrey and Middlesex to move into fifth place in the South Group with 7 points from their 8 matches so far in the competition.

The Spitfires meanwhile boast 10 points from 7 matches and sit in second place in the group on run-rate behind Gloucestershire, who have played a game more.
