The south-group games of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023 will commence on Wednesday (May 24) with Kent squaring off against Gloucestershire. This match will take place at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury.

Kent had a horrible season last year as they finished at the bottom of the south-group points table with six points, winning just three of their 14 games.

Australia’s white-ball specialist Kane Richardson is all set for his Vitality Blast debut alongside George Linde as the team will be expecting both of their overseas players to step up for the team in their opening fixture.

Gloucestershire, on the other hand, had an average outing in the previous year’s edition of the tournament. They managed to secure 14 points, winning six of their 14 games.

The team will be hoping for a re-group this year after the departure of their star players, including Benny Howell, Ian Cockbain and Ryan Higgins.
