The Central Stags are on a bit of a roll at the moment, winning both their games so far in the new season of the Super Smash. Their next assignment is against Canterbury Kings who are coming off a loss against Wellington Firebirds. The Stags have looked solid so far and would have momentum on their side. Canterbury might find it hard to take them down on their home ground.

Canterbury Kings Preview

After taking down Otago in their first game, the Central Stags put up another impressive show against defending champions Wellington Firebirds in their next. While their top-order failed this time, their lower middle-order came to the rescue. With the side struggling at 81-4, skipper Tom Bruce (69* off 48 balls) and Josh Clarkson (71* off 32 balls) forged a stunning partnership to take the team to an imposing total of 190-4. Their bowlers then did a good job to restrict the opposition to 176-7.

What’s impressive about the Stags so far is that both their top and lower order are now among the runs. On the bowling front, Doug Bracewell has been among the wickets and keeps the runs under check. Seth Rance has looked impressive as well and left-arm spinner Jayden Lennox continues to show why he is so important. Blair Tickner and Ben Wheeler have been expensive and that’s one area the opposition will target.
 

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Greg Hay, Bayley Wiggins, Dane Cleaver (wk), Ben Smith, Tom Bruce (c), Christian Leopard, Doug Bracewell, Ben Wheeler, Jayden Lennox, Blair Tickner, Seth Rance

Central Stags Preview

Canterbury put up an insipid show in their very first game of the season. While chasing a target of 175, they could only muster 150-9. None of their main batsmen got going and their highest score of 29 came from tail-ender Will Williams. They do have some solid batters in the form of Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Jack Boyle, and Cole McConchie. But how well they shape up as a unit remains to be seen. Bowes might be the one to watch out for in this game.

Canterbury’s bowling looks to be in better shape. Matt Henry looked good in the last game and Ed Nuttall produced an excellent spell of 3-31. Left-arm chinaman Blake Coburn has also looked in a good rhythm and a good spell by him could make a big difference.

Weather Conditions

As this is a fresh pitch, runs would be there for the taking. However, the weather will be a little cloudy and the seamers can expect some movement off the pitch. 

 

The weather in Christchurch is expected to be cool and pleasant, although a shower or two might disrupt the proceedings. 

Venue Details

The highest team total at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch is 219-7 by Northern Districts. However, the average score batting first on the venue is 158. Totals between 150 and 169 have been achieved 11 times here out of the 29 matches played. The team batting first should hence be looking at a total of around 160-170.

Toss: To Bowl

The team winning the toss is likely to bat second. Some showers are expected and chasing would be a better idea.

In the last encounters between Central Stags and Canterbury Kings, the Stags have won 3 matches while Canterbury has won 2. Playing at home, and with winning momentum on their side, the Stags would begin as favorites for this game. Their batting is looking dangerously good while their bowling has plenty of options. Canterbury’s batting has appeared a little fragile and that’s one area that might cost them. 

Expect the Central Stags to win this match.
