Match Preview: (By Vishnu)
The 55th match of the Vitality T20 blast 2022 will be played between Essex and Kent in County Ground, Chelmsford on 7th June.
Essex has a sluggish start to their name this season. They have played 5 matches and have won 2 of them while they have lost 2 matches as well and one match being washed out. In their last outing, the match was washed out against Gloucestershire. The batting has not been up to the mark for them but in both their wins, their batting played a major role. Their bowling has been average but they will want more from the bowling department. They will be looking to return to the winning track.
Kent has started very poorly this season. They have played 6 matches till now and have won 1 one of them while losing the other 5 matches. Their 1st win came in their last match against Middlesex where they derailed Middlesex by 55 runs. Nothing has worked for them till now and they will want better performances from both the departments to continue the winning momentum.
