Kent Spitfires return to Twenty20 Cup action on Monday when they entertain Hampshire Hawks at Tunbridge Wells.

It is the first time that Tunbridge Wells has hosted Twenty20 Cup cricket and officials are expecting a near sell-out at The Nevill Ground.

The match will also see the 100,000th spectator at a Twenty20 Cup game in Kent, since the competition started six years ago, come through the gates with a special presentation planned by club officials.

Spitfires have four matches left to play as they aim to qualify for the knockout stages for the third successive season.

Kent travel to The Brit Oval on Wednesday to take on Surrey Brown Caps before moving to The Rose Bowl on Friday evening to face Hampshire Hawks in the return match under floodlights.

They conclude their campaign at Beckenham on Sunday when Surrey Brown Caps are the visitors.

Spitfires are in third place in the South Division, three points behind leaders Sussex Sharks after their controversial Duckworth/Lewis defeat at Hove before the competition’s mid-season break.
