Central Stags Preview

Central Districts have just a single in the last 6 matches and are struggling to gain momentum at the moment. Christian Leopard was the leading run-scorer with just 27 runs the last match as they strolled to total of 138 runs.

Kieron Noema, Tom Bruce, George Worker have made good contributions but need to bat more consistently across matches. Ajaz Patel and Ryan Watson took 2 wickets each and put a brave fight with the ball in hand. Ben Wheeler and George Worker chipped in crucial wickets and kept the run rate under check effectively. Blair Tickner was expensive for the second match in a row and is expected to be replaced in the playing XI.

Key Players:

Kieron Noema - Barnett – Barnett failed to kick on the last match and had a painful stay of 24-ball 21 last match. But never forget, his knock of 30-ball 55 sealed the match in his team`s favour a couple of days ago.

Ajaz Patel – Ajaz Patel took the top-order wickets of Colin Munro and Mark Chapman and gave away just 20 runs in his 4 overs. His inspired spell kept his team in the hunt.

Central Stags Predicted Playing XI:

Kieran Noema-Barnett, George Worker, Ben Wheeler, Dane Cleaver (wk), Tom Bruce (c), Ajaz Patel, Josh Clarkson, Blair Tickner, Christian Leopard, Willem Ludick, Ryan Watson
