KEN vs SUR Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the KEN vs SUR head-to-head contest.

Surrey to win

Surrey are unbeaten in the tournament, occupying the first spot in South Group with three consecutive wins. Defending champions Kent have lost four out of their four matches and are placed second from the bottom. It's a no-brainer that Surrey are the hot favourites to beat Kent and extend their lead at the top of the table.

Surrey and Kent have played a total of 37 matches, with Surrey and Kent winning 18 matches each. Kent have won three out of their last five matches including both their matches in the 2021 season. Overall, Surrey have won each of their last five matches, while Kent only one. The other thing in favour of Surrey is their record at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury. The Chris Jordan-led side have lost only thrice in the ten matches played against Kent.

For Kent, Sam Billings is the only batsman to have scored over 100 runs in the Vitality Blast 2022. Surrey have played only three matches but two of their players - Will Jack (121) and Sam Curran (111) have crossed the 100-run mark. England internationals Sam Curran and Reece Topley are on fire with the ball as well. Curran took a five-wicket haul in Surrey's last match against Hampshire, while Topley has also scalped five wickets so far. Not a single bowler from Kent has taken five wickets so far in the ongoing tournament.

Star-studded Surrey, who have the likes of Jason Roy, Sunil Narine, Sam Curran and Kieron Pollard in their squad, look set to register a thumping win against Kent on Friday.

KEN vs SUR Player Bet:

Sam Curran and Sam Billings are my top two player betting tips for the KEN vs SUR match 41. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Sam Curran to score over 19.5 runs

Sam Curran did not enter the IPL 2022 mega auction to focus on his rehabilitation. The talented all-rounder announced his comeback with first-class matches for Surrey. The right-hander made an impact straightaway, scoring 80 and 33 in his first outing. He scored a fifty in each of his following three innings as well.

Before featuring for Surrey in the Vitality Blast 2022, Curran last batted in a T20 match in September 2021 for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2021. He did play a T20 match against Sri Lanka Cricket Development XI on Wednesday but did not get a chance to bat as Surrey won the match by 9 wickets.

But that has hardly stopped Sam Curran from doing what he does best. In his three matches so far he has picked 10 wickets and scored 111 runs. The 24-year-old's stellar innings on the eve of his birthday saw Surrey post 228 for four against Hampshire. Curran hit 69 runs off just 38 balls. He looks set to make an impact again against a struggling Kent side.

Curran played four matches for Surrey in the Vitality Blast 2021 but hit headlines with an unbeaten 72-run knock off just 36 balls which helped Surrey gun down 188 in just 16 overs. Rubbing shoulders with the likes of MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo and Suresh Raina has only given him more exposure and improved his T20 game.

Overall, the 23-year-old has played 113 T20 games to score 1347 runs at an average of 21.38. Sam Curran has seven fifties to his name in the T20 format. Against a very under-performing Kent bowling unit, Sam Curran should find it very easy to score over 19.5 runs. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Sam Curran to score over 19.5 runs from the KEN vs SUR head-to-head encounter.
