Kent vs Northamptonshire Match Preview
The visiting side of Northamptonshire travel to the historically significant and aesthetically pleasing St Lawrence Cricket Ground located in Canterbury, Kent, to take on the home team Kent in a match in the Liverpool Victoria County Championship from 3 June 2021, Thursday to 6 June 2021, Sunday. While Kent had the last week off, Northamptonshire won their previous match by 7 wickets against Sussex in an enthralling encounter. We are sure that the visiting side will be looking to replicate it here as well. However, Kent, who had drawn with Glamorgan in their previous match, will be peeved at any such effort being made and, quite naturally, will resist with all their force and capability. At the time of writing, Kent is ranked right at the bottom of their group's league table with 61 points to their name, whereas their opponents Northamptonshire are located in the 3rd position of the same standings with 97 points inside their bag. It has to be noted that although Northamptonshire has won three games so far, Kent is yet to open their account in the 'victories' department.
Kent Team News
The home team, which used to house big England former number three Rob Key, are now led by batsman Daniel Bell Drummond. England internationals Joe Denly and Zak Crawley are on their roster but will miss out on this game on account of being part of the national team for the series against New Zealand beginning on Wednesday at Lord's. This can deal a big blow to the already struggling side, and we are sure that their chances will get hampered no end.
Northamptonshire Team News
Northamptonshire, who wicketkeeper Adam Rossington skippers, also have in their ranks Rob Keogh and Gareth Berg, who can turn the game around for their team in a matter of minutes. These players are very highly rated by their supporters, who will be hoping to get a display oozing of pure class here on Thursday against Kent.
