ck vs cs Match Prediction & Analysis

Canterbury Kings have done well so far in the season and they would be looking to continue with their form as they meet Central Stags in the 13th game Super Smash 2020-21. The Kings come here with a big win against the Auckland Aces and the team looks in good frame of mind. The Stags also defeated the Otago Volts by a big margin and they would look to move up on the points table with a win here.  

The Canterbury Kings have had a poor record against the Central Stags and this is something that would be playing in their minds in this game. They would look to use the momentum to win this one. The Stags have had their problems with inconsistency too this season and given the form we see in the two camps this is expected to be a good contest. 

Teams Preview

Canterbury Kings Preview

Cole McConchie’s side has played just two games so far but they have done well winning both of them. It was a comprehensive win for the side in the last game against the Auckland Aces where they crossed over the finishing line with 10 wickets in hand in a rain affected game that was reduced to 5 overs a side. McConchie would know that Stags are a good side and expect good show from his players in this game. 

They have their openers Chad Bowes and Ken McClure in good form the pair would be expected to provide a good start to the side. The middle order has good experience with Jack Boyle and McConchie and they would to score quickly. They have good depth in their batting with Matthew Hay, Cam Fletcher and Leo Carter coming down the order.

The Kings have a strong bowling attack with Ed Nuttall and Sean Davey opening the bowling for the side. Both these bowlers are highly experienced and they would look to pick early wickets given the inexperience in the rest of the attack. Todd Astle, Will Williams and Fraser Sheat would have to focus on keeping the opponents quite during the middle overs of the game. 

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Cole McConchie (c), Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Sean Davey, Leo Carter, Cam Fletcher (wk), Todd Astle, Matthew Hay, Fraser Sheat, Will Williams, Ed Nuttall

Central Districts Preview

George Worker’s side comes here with a big win. They won against the Otago Volts by 53 runs in the last game. But the problem for the side has been with its consistency as they are following up big wins with losses. Worker would want his side to carry the confidence into the next game and win it to move up on the points table.  

George Worker would be confident after his hundred in the last game and look to provide a positive start to the side along with Christian Leopard. Will Young played well in the last game and the side would be expecting contributions from Dane Cleaver here. With Josh Clarkson and Doug Bracewell to follow they have the required firepower in the batting department. 

Their bowling attack has been leaking runs and the side would need early wickets from Doug Bracewell and Blair Tickner to win this game. Joey Field and Josh Clarkson did well with the ball in the last game and they would look to continue with their good form. Ajaz Patel chipped in with three wickets and along with Noema-Barnett will have to keep the line tight in this game. 

Central Districts Predicted Playing XI:

George Worker (c), Bayley Wiggins, Will Young, Dane Cleaver (wk), Josh Clarkson, Doug Bracewell, Kieran Noema-Barnett, Christian Leopard, Ajaz Patel, Blair Tickner, Joey Field

Weather Conditions

The weather would be partly cloudy at Christchurch on January 10 and the ball is expected to do a bit in the air for the fast bowlers. The track would be a good one to bat on where the ball would come to the bat nicely. A score of 170 runs or more would make the side batting first confident on this surface.

Venue Details

Hagley Oval, Christchurch is a small ground and the shorter square boundaries allow the batsmen to free their arms easily. Fast bowlers do get some assistance here as the new moves around it. Spinners don’t quite enjoy bowling on this ground due to the shorter boundaries.

Toss: To Bowl

This will be the first game of the season at this venue and there would be some juice on the surface which would aid the bowlers. In the last two seasons we have seen most of the teams winning by chasing scores. Hence the side that wins the toss is likely to invite the opposition to bat first.

CK vs CS Winning Prediction

Canterbury Kings have played just two games so far and their batting line-up hasn’t been fully exposed. They lack depth in their bowling which is likely to be a big problem against a side that has shown good form with the bat in the tournament. The Stags have good firepower in the batting through their bowlers have gone for runs in the last few games. It is expected to be a tight contest but the Stags would start nose ahead in it.
