Fifties from Sam Billings and Daniel Bell-Drummond fueled Kent to 162 for 7, after which Matt Milnes burrowed his heels with a four-fer to down Warwickshire and take Kent to the T20 Blast semis. Warwickshire had a bowler with a four-wicket pull as well – Tim Bresnan – yet couldn’t secure the two half-centurions who did what’s necessary to control Kent to a game dominating aggregate.
Warwickshire were additionally let somewhere near their batting, and were given weak any desires for a late heist just when their No.8 and No. 9 – Bresnan and Jake Lintott – showed versatility late in the pursuit. In any case, it came a touch past the point of no return as Kent finished a 21-run triumph to book their spot for the Finals Day.
Warwickshire began genuinely well in the wake of embeddings Kent in first, as they got two wickets inside the PowerPlay. However, Billings and Bell-Drummond then, at that point prepared a speedy 50-run remain off 38 balls before the last was run out contrary to the rules. Kent were let somewhere near the center request as Jack Leaning, Alex Blake and Jordan Cox all returned single-digit scores, giving over the control of the procedures to the bowling side through the center overs.
However, Billings battled on, and took his group past the 150-run mark prior to falling in the last over for a 37-ball 56, which included eight fours and a six.
The pursuit wasn’t excessively steep yet Warwickshire did not have the kind of top-request impulse that conveyed Kent before in the day. Wickets tumbled away without a solitary association of note to put a cover on the descending winding as Warwickshire lost batsmen on one or the other side of the PowerPlay.
Opener Robert Yates’ 19 was the best batting returns among the main seven batsmen as Warwickshire tumbled to 55 for 6 in the eleventh over, at risk for collapsing submissively despite pressure. Chris Woakes showed some opposition, yet momentarily as he left in the fourteenth over with the group on 84.
Bresnan and Lintott got the pieces from that point and gave faint any expectations of an important rebound. However, the chances were stacked intensely against them as the asking rate had shot through the rooftop while the top-request bit the dust its direction to the center overs.
The degree of Warwickshire’s batting incompetence was obvious from the way that the pair added 54 runs in 30 conveyances from overs 14 to 19, but the group required 25 runs off the last six conveyances. Lintott 20-ball 41 was the redeeming quality in a generally poor batting show as Warwickshire’s innings – and the current year’s mission – finished on 141.
