Kent Spitfires v Lancashire Lightning: One-Day Cup squads

Friday 7th August 2015

Men’s First Team

Kent Spitfires aim to take a step forward on the Road to Lord's when face Lancashire Lightning on Saturday in the Royal London One-Day Cup (10.30am start).

A win would propel the Spitfires back into the top four places in Group B, which qualify for the quarter-finals at the end of the group stage.

Skipper Sam Northeast said: “It’s taken me a little time to know my game and how to adapt to different formats. It’s a very English mentality that we focus so strongly on four-day cricket at the starts of our careers, then expand our one-day games as we go on. That’s the process I’ve been going through, I guess.

“Championship cricket comes complete with a challenging mental approach day in, day out, whereas with the shorter forms you can just go out there and have fun. I’m enjoying that balance.

"As the T20 Blast performances this year have shown, there’s a good spirit amongst the lads and we’ve tried to take that forward and get on a roll in the Royal London One-Day Cup."
