KET vs SUR Grand League Prediction:
Scenario 1: Kent continuing their good run of form
Kent are placed on the second spot on the points table after winning 6 of the 11 matches played. With the return of skipper Sam Billings, their batting line-up is even more strengthened.
Heino Kuhn, Daniel Bell Drummond, Hardus Viljoen are the star performers and should be considered as Captain, Vice-captains in this scenario.
Scenario 2: Surrey going down brutally
Surrey are already placed at the second last position on the points table. Despite some big names like Imran Tahir, Aaron Finch, etc they haven't been able to perform well so far.
Here, consider fewer players from Surrey as they are expected to lose the game.
Scenario 3: Surrey producing an upset
Aaron Finch, Gareth Batty, Imran Tahir, Jade Dernbach etc are quality players in Surrey's side who can turn the tables around on any given day.
Considering the aforementioned names, Surrey can produce an upset for sure and these players will be making a serious impact.
