T20 Blast 2022: ESS vs KEN Match Prediction – Who will win the match between Essex and Kent? Michael Hogan of Glamorgan is the joint leading wicket-taker this season, with 13 wickets. The right-arm pacer will look to take advantage of the favorable pitch conditions and provide early wickets for his team.
Essex will host Kent in their next T20 Blast 2022 match on June 7 at the County Ground in Chelmsford (Tuesday). The visitors are in terrible form, having lost five of their first six games. They won their most recent game against Middlesex after losing their previous five. As a result, Kent is ranked second last in the South Group points table.
Essex, on the other hand, has had a wild ride thus far. The most recent of their five scheduled games, against Gloucestershire, was canceled due to rain. They’ve won two and lost two of the other four games they’ve played. The two teams will square off for the second time this season, with the hosts having the upper hand.
