Skipper James Tredwell says Kent will be aggressive as they seek to keep alive their slim hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals of the Yorkshire Bank 40 competition by winning their final two games.

Tredwell admitted to disappointment after the Spitfires’ chances of a semi-final spot were all but ended by a five-wicket defeat at Northamptonshire Steelbacks on Tuesday, which left them needing to beat Warwickshire on Thursday, 4.40pm, and Group A leaders Notts on August 26, both at Canterbury, plus hope other results go their way.

After posting a below-par 188-7, Kent were beaten by the Steelbacks with two balls to spare and Tredwell said: “At one stage it didn’t look like it was going to be that close, so in the end it was a good effort.

“It was disappointing to lose. If we had maybe made 15 or 20 more with that bat then it might have been interesting but the real difference was their partnership (Kyle Coetzer and Cameron

“That took the game away from us and we found it tough to break it. If we’d managed to do it 10 or 15 overs earlier, it might have been a different game.”

He added: “We want to attack the last two games and try to win them both.
“Whether that will be good enough (to qualify), only time will tell.”
