SUR vs KET Dream11 Prediction: Surrey and Kent go up against each other in this game in the England T20 Blast in the first quarterfinal game.
The two teams from the south group finished 1st and 3rd respectively and in the two games that they played against each other, they both picked up a win against each other.
Surrey however had a better season overall as they picked up 7 wins and the only loss that they faced was against their opponents today. The form however comes to nothing in the quarterfinal encounter as it will be their performance on the day that would matter.
Kent qualified as one of the two third place finishers and won 5 of their games however they will fancy their chances in this game against an opponent they have beaten previously and this is where the big match performers come in handy for their team.
