Drummond, their captain, will have a tough task to get their 1st win in this game, with a couple of good players like Denly and Crawley in the opposition, as his main batsmen. Whereas Yorkshire has got a very good team, and with Root’s return, they are a very strong team, who is looking to go the top, but Kent will hopefully give a fight in this one and win it.
