Round six of the Virtual County Championship between Yorkshire and Kent 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.

Yorkshire are at the 4th spot in the virtual County Championship division 1 points table. After 4 games, they have won three and lost one and are with 66 points.

The team will take on Kent who are not doing that well and are placed at the second-last spot in the leaderboard with only one wicket from their four matches. The team has lost the other three games and is tied on 35 points with Hampshire and Surrey.

Kent lost their last match by 4 wickets. Sam Billings played well for his 42 in the first innings while Darren Stevens picked up 3 wickets but it was an unbeaten 55 from Harry Podmore, well assisted by Alex Blake's half century, which took Kent close to a victory.

But, Sam Curran threw a spanner in their works. Kyle Abbott, as has been the case for the last couple of years, bowled well with figures of 2/33 in the last innings.

They will face Yorkshire, who have a formidable middle order with Dawid Malan, Gary Ballance, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow. Along with Tim Bresnan, Matthew Waite, Steven Patterson and Ben Coad, Ravichandran Ashwin provides a different dimension to their bowling attack.

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

Yorkshire - Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan, Gary Ballance, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Tim Bresnan, Matthew Waite, Steven Patterson, Ben Coad, Ravichandran Ashwin

Kent - Sam Billings, Zak Crawley, Joe Denly, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Heino Kuhn, Alex Blake, Ollie Robinson, Darren Stevens, Harry Podmore, Tim Groenewald, Matt Milnes
