Kent vs Warwickshire 4th Quarterfinal – T20 Blast Betting Tips

Host Kent will face Warwickshire in the quarterfinals of the Vitality T20 Blast at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury on Friday. 

The home team in this fixture finished the first stage on the top of the South Group with 19 points after 14 matches with nine wins and just four defeats. 

On the other hand, Warwickshire finished fourth in the North Group with 15 points, which included seven wins and six defeats, two of whom came in the last two outings of the first round. 

Both team managements will be hoping to see the best of players in the must-win contest, knowing that nothing less than perfect performance is required from now on till the very end of the competition. 

Both teams have competed just once in the history of the competition—back in the 2008 season—where Kent came out on top.

Kent Form and Team news: 

Kent will start the contest as firm favorites but their performance throughout the season had a few ups and downs. 

However, the team consistently remains dependent on some players which might become a problem in the contest where every individual must step up and make himself count. 

Right-handed batsman Zak Crawley, who has recently been dropped from England’s Test squad for the third match against India, will be hoping to put an impressive performance to remind the selectors about his qualities. 

In the batting department, Kent will be relying on the likes of young wicketkeeper-batsman Jordan Cox, Crawley, middle-order batsman Jack Leaning, opener Daniel Bell-Drummond, Sam Billings and Joe Denly to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of left-arm pacer Fred Klaassen, right-arm fast-bowler Matt Milnes and veteran Darren Stevens to produce timely breakthroughs.

Warwickshire Form and Team News

Warwickshire will be coming in this contest as an underdog but victories in the last two matches would give the team management a lot of hope going into the knockout phase of the competition. 

However, all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite’s return to West Indies will be a significant blow for the side, especially because he not only scored valuable 183 runs at an average of 22.87 but also claimed 18 wickets with the ball in hand. 

In the batting department, the side will be relying on the likes of middle-order batsman Sam Hain, opening batsman Ed Pollock and left-hander Will Rhodes to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Craig Miles, Will Rhodes, Tim Bresnan along with the spin duo of Danny Briggs and Jake Lintott to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

In the knockout stage of the competition, it is very hard to predict the outcome as everything will depend on how the teams will perform on that very day. 

However, looking at both teams composition on the paper, the home sides look like a far settled unit, especially against a Carlos Brathwaite-less Warwickshire.

Therefore, the prediction is for Kent to secure a win in a tight contest and book their place in the last four.  

Tip 1-Daniel Bell Drummond to continue to lead the way

With 339 runs in 11 innings at an average of 33.90, Daniel Bell-Drummond is currently leading run-scorer in the competition. Skipper will be looking to deliver the goods with the bat. Given his decent form with the bat this season, we can expect Daniel Bell-Drummond to score 20 runs or more in this quarterfinal [email protected].

Tip 2- Jake Lintott to continue his decent form with the ball in hand

Left-arm spinner has put in excellent performances for Warwickshire in this year’s Vitality T20 Blast competition. He claimed 15 wickets in 10 matches at an average of 18.13 with an economy rate of 6.17.

Given his excellent bowling performances, we can expect spinner Jake Lintott to take one wicket or more in this [email protected]


Expect Kent to register a close win over Warwickshire at Canterbury.
