Robert Key is back from England Lions duty to lead Kent against Somerset at Tunbridge Wells.
Key replaces Matthew Walker in the only change to the XI that beat Nottinghamshire in their last Championship fixture.
James Tredwell opened the batting against Nottinghamshire but will drop back down into the middle order so Key can resume his opening partnership with Joe Denly.
Somerset are unchanged for the visit to Kent, keeping faith with the XI that drew with Sussex last week.
The Cidermen, who were promoted as Division Two champions last season, have drawn their opening three fixtures back in the top flight.
