Somerset vs Kent Match Pitch Report

The pitch at the Cooper Associates County Ground is a well-balanced one. The bowlers can do well when the conditions are right and they hit the right areas. The average first innings score at this venue is 177 but the bowlers can certainly run through the opposition’s batting lineup if they bowl well.

There are no big stands here at The Cooper Associates County Ground and the breeze flowing across the ground plays a key role. The pacers will get some good movement and the spinners can certainly get the drift required to trouble the batters.

Somerset vs Kent Match Prediction

Kent looks to be far sharper and a much better unit than we saw in the 2022 T20 Blast but this will be their second hard game in a row. Somerset have strength in their batting and their bowling line-up and we are backing them to win this match.

Somerset vs Kent Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers

Somerset’s bowling attack has a great deal of depth and at least one of their bowlers tends to step up and lead the attack in every game. Their last win saw Roelof van der Merwe, Shoaib Bashir, and Josh Davey all take three wickets with Craig Overton also contributing a dismissal.

George Linde and Grant Steward picked 3 wickets against Middlesex and 2 wickets against Kent, showing good form with the ball. Wes Agar is another good bowler in the team who can deliver a solid performance in the next match.
