Worcestershire ate the favourites against Kent.
Worcestershire will host Kent in the Group 2 match of the English One Day Cup on Sunday. Worcestershire have prepared well for this tournament, as they won the warm-up against Herefordshire by 7 wickets. Joe Leach will be leading the side, whereas Brett D’Oliveira is the man to watch out for.
On the other hand, Kent are looking for their first win in this tournament. They lost to Durham in their opening encounter by a massive margin of 103 runs. They conceded a lot of runs, and chasing a mammoth total of 405 runs is always difficult on any kind of surface.
