Kent would look to put the disappointment of English One Day Cup 2019 opener behind them when they take on Somerset on Friday. Kent suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Hampshire (a loss by 90 runs) to kickstart their campaign. However, there were some positives from the opening game that Kent would want to build on, as Matt Milnes picked a fifer and Zak Crawley and Harry Podmore came good with the bat.
Somerset, on the other hand, would look for a winning start against a side that struggled in their opening game of the tournament. The onus will be on captain Tom Abell to lead by example.
