KENT vs ESS Prediction - May 27, 2022

Kent lost its opening match of the T20 Blast 2022 season to Somerset and will be looking for its first win as it takes on Essex. This match is going to be the first one that Essex plays and it will be hoping for a good start to its campaign as well.

Kent has dominated the recent rivalry against Essex, winning the previous four matches it has played against it in this format. That could be one of the reasons why Kent is being given the tag of favorites at all the best cricket betting sites in India (or anywhere else).

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Kent vs Essex T20 Blast 2022. The match is going to be played at the St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury on the 27th of May 2022.

KENT vs ESS Team Previews


Kent has a strong top order but it did not fire in the previous match. That is something that the team will be looking to address and correct. Players like Zak Crawley, Joe Denly, or even Sam Billings are just far too good to be missing out too often.

Jack Leaning showed just how good he can be in the middle of the order as well.

We think Kent has the advantage when it comes to the batting lineup.

Qais Ahmad, Matthew Milnes, and Fred Klaassen also lead a strong bowling unit. Starting trouble apart, we think Kent is a strong team and is going to win more matches than it loses.

Essex has one of the weaker teams in this season of the T20 Blast and we think it is going to struggle to get the runs on board that it needs. The batting does not have the top performers of domestic cricket and the overseas replacements are also not the greatest.

They have Daniel Sams in the lineup and that is a good buy because he can bowl well and also contribute with some lusty big hits. However, we think he is going to lack support in both the batting and the bowling front.
