Round three of the Virtual County Championship between Kent and Gloucestershire is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Kent registered a two-wicket victory in their last match of the virtual County Championship against Hampshire. Ollie Robinson and Darren Stevens were the team's top performers with the bat while Tim Groenewald and Matt Milnes were among the wickets.

On the other hand, Gloucestershire lost the last match of the virtual County Championship by three wickets against Lancashire.

Chris Dent, James Bracey, George Hankins and Gareth Roderick are the Gloucestershire batsmen who are likely to be among the runs in the encounter against Kent. When it comes to bowling, Josh Shaw and Jack Taylor are likely to succeed.

Kent have an impressive top five in Sean Dickson, Zak Crawley, Joe Denly, Daniel Bell-Drummond and Heino Kuhn. In terms of pedigree, Crawley and Denly are the most well-placed to have an impact on the match.

Tim Groenewald and Matt Milnes have already been picking wickets for the team. The two are likely to get support from Harry Podmore this time around.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Gloucestershire - Miles Hammond, Chris Dent, James Bracey, George Hankins, Gareth Roderick, Benny Howell, Ryan Higgins, Graeme van Buuren, Josh Shaw, Jack Taylor, George Drissell
