Team manager Lin Martin said: "T20 is a very different game to 50-over cricket and we need a different mindset.

"The past two games have seen more than 60 dot balls in the Kent innings each time – this is half the innings.

"We need to make each delivery count. We have seen great bowling and fielding, but the batting needs to be better."

Kent Under-17 duo Rochelle Beeson and Izzy Cloke are added to the squad as Kent captain Charlotte Edwards is unavailable on Sunday and Tash Farrant joins Tammy Beaumont and Laura Marsh on international duty with England.

Both players have come through the excellent Tunbridge Wells youth system and Cloke recently took part in the England Women's Development Under-19 Programme this winter alongside Kent spinner Megan Belt.

The Tunbridge Wells teenagers deputise from Kent captain Charlotte Edwards who is unavailable on Sunday.

Kent squad:20 Lydia Greenway, 19 Suzie Bates, 24 Alice Davidson Richards, 9 Lottie Bryan, 14 Lauren Griffiths (w), 17 Emily Thompson, 8 Charlotte Pape, 6 Megan Belt, 10 Phoebe Franklin, 11 Jenni Jackson, Rochelle Beeson, Izzy Cloke.
