Spitfires skipper Rob Key says he hopes Kent have found the right formula to enjoy success in the T20 competition this summer.
Kent have three NatWest T20 Blast games in seven days, and having begun the South Group campaign with back-to-back wins will be seeking to firmly establish themselves in the race for the knockout stages.
Key admitted: “It feels good - it’s good to get momentum in T20 cricket. Every year I always say you can have all the plans you like and everything going for you but you don’t really know (how you’ll do) until you get out there.
“We’re starting to find a formula. Long may it continue.”
Spinner James Tredwell returns from England duty to bolster the Spitfires ranks at Hampshire on Thursday, with further group games to follow at home to Middlesex tomorrow (7pm) and against Essex on Wednesday (6.30pm).
Assistant coach Matt Walker said: “We’re very fortunate to have England’s number one spin bowler back, he has bowled very well in this series against Sri Lanka.
“With Adam Riley bowling very well aswell it gives us a decision to make, but it’s a good headache for us, having two spinners on top of their game is great news for us.
“We could well find a way of getting them both into the team, but we’ll wait to see what the wickets are like before making any decisions.”
After missing the T20 action, Ben Harmison is likely to return to the squad for the Championship game against Essex, which starts on Saturday (12pm).
