Zak Crawley and Daniel Bell-Drummond have been the regular ones to open the innings for Kent in T20 Blast.

This sums up to 611 runs from 16 matches, averaging almost 38.18 runs for the first wicket which fall well above our target. This signifies that the side has scored above our radar nine out of 16 times. This entails 56.25% efficiency of Kent to pull off an opening partnership above our desired target of 23.5 runs.
