The Newbery Blitz has pumped up the volume in the NatWest T20 Blast and will continue to bring the noise to the quarter-finals in the hands of no fewer than 10 Newbery Pros.

Sam Northeast has enjoyed a run-laden tournament so far, notching up 627 runs for South Group winners Kent Spitfires, the second highest in the tournament. He will look to extend his form into the knockout stages against Lancashire Lightning in the Saturday afternoon sun at Canterbury.
