Kent Spitfires cross the border into Wales to face Glamorgan at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff in the Royal London Cup.
Last-time out, double century-maker Ollie Robinson hit Kent’s highest individual score in List A cricket as they chased down a 352 target with 5.1 overs to spare in their opening Royal London Cup encounter with Worcestershire at New Road.
He surpassed the previous best Kent performance in 50-over cricket of 150 not out by Joe Denly against Glamorgan at Canterbury four years ago.
Kent will be without players that have been selected to play in The Hundred; Daniel Bell-Drummond, Sam Billings, Jordan Cox, Zak Crawley, Fred Klaassen, Jack Leaning & Matt Milnes are unavailable for their county during the Royal London Cup.
This being said, talents such as Denly, Robinson, Alex Blake, Navdeep Saini, Darren Stevens & Grant Stewart will don the sky blue across this year’s 50-over competition.
Tickets are now on sale for all Kent’s Royal London matches, via tickets.kentcricket.co.uk with £5 off when purchased in advance.
Glamorgan began their defence of the Royal London One-Day Cup with an emphatic eight wicket victory over Derbyshire in the opening Group B match at Derby.
Timm van der Gugten took 4 for 41 and Jamie McIlroy 2 for 13 as Derbyshire were bowled out for 110 after Glamorgan won the toss in a game reduced to 47 overs by rain with Mattie McKiernan’s 43 off 56 balls the only innings of substance.
Glamorgan slipped to 28/2 but skipper Kiran Carlson’s unbeaten 54 off 53 balls and Colin Ingram with 30 not out took the visitors to 112 for 2 with 25 overs to spare.
Glamorgan vs. Kent Spitfires will be live streamed with embedded commentary via the Match Centre on the Kent Cricket website, which will also host a live video scorecard. Pictures will be provided by Glamorgan CCC.
Live score updates will also be provided via the Club’s official Twitter account.
Navdeep Saini was recently announced as a Kent Spitfire throughout the Royal London Cup, and is joined in an Overseas slot by spinning all-rounder George Linde.
Joe Denly is unfit to play after not featuring against Worcestershire Rapids with a minor back strain but will travel with the squad to Cardiff – Alex Blake will captain the Spitfires once more in Wales.
