Adams has stuck with the same 12 names as he picked for Tuesday's game. The squad and possible XI is as follows:
Steven DaviesJason Roy
Zander de Bruyn
12th man: Dirk NannesAfter his horror show performance on Tuesday, where his two overs disappeared for 34 runs, Dirk Nannes should make way. He simply has not performed to the level we saw last season, one wicket for 129 runs, and an economy rate of almost 10 runs an over is not what you expect from your overseas strike bowler. Chris Tremlett will hopefully return to the side in preparation for Championship cricket next week.
Gareth Batty has been our stand-out bowler in the T20 this year with 10 wickets. His economy rate is truly impressive, giving away just 4.6 runs an over, none of the other top 15 leading wicket takers in the country come within a run of him.
Kent, who we've developed a bit of a habit of losing to in Twenty20 of late, need a win to have any hope of progression. They have some in form batsmen in the shape of Northeast, Billings and the evergreen Stevens, all averaging 30+ this season. Their bowling has been less impressive but in Davies they have a bowler who can keep things quiet with Ball, Tredwell and Mahmood to attack and take wickets.
What is essential tonight is a more stable platform. Top order collapses have become the norm, so even if it means a very quiet opening, preserving wickets should be the aim this evening. The weather should hold out, and perhaps for some the funeral of Tom Maynard yesterday will have been an emotional but cathartic ordeal. It will still be a while before things get back to normal, whatever that is, for the players, but going out tonight to show what they're made of would be a great start.
