Teams Preview

Canterbury Kings Preview

Canterbury lost momentum in the far end of the league phase winning just 1 match out of their 4 matches. Cole McConchie (247 runs), Daryl Mitchell (251 runs), and Chad Bowes (233 runs) have scored the bulk of runs for the team so far. Cam Fletcher and Ken McClure have chipped in with crucial runs in the middle overs.

Their pace battery of Matt Henry, Ed Nuttall, Daryl Mitchell, and Will Williams have taken a combined tally of 35 wickets this season but are leaking runs at over 8.5 RPO which is a big worry for the team. Todd Astle and Cole McConchie have provided great support to the etam in the bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Daryl Mitchell – Mitchell has 251 runs and 8 wickets in this season so far. He is one of the all-rounders who can contribute effectively with both bat and ball. We expect him to continue his good form in the coming matches too.  

Todd Astle – Todd Astle has just 7 wickets to his name but has restricted the run flow giving runs at 6.8 RPO in the middle overs. He will be their trump card in the bowling department.

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

George Worker, Will Young, Dane Cleaver (wk), Ross Taylor, Tom Bruce (c), Josh Clarkson, Doug Bracewell, Joey Field, Ajaz Patel, Blair Tickner, Jayden Lennox

Weather Conditions

Auckland has bright sunny and hot weather conditions on the match day but has very less to no chances of rain as per the weather forecasters. We expect no interruptions in this match due to rain.

Venue Details

Auckland is a good batting track with smaller boundary dimensions on the straight and square. Bowlers need to be at their mark with their execution to control the run flow. We expect yet another run feast with the scores to be around 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Batting first is the safe option in the big matches as the pressure of chasing might cause you to choke in crucial moments. We expect both captains to bat first in this match.

CK vs CS Winning Prediction

Both teams have lost a couple of matches in the final league matches but Canterbury won the crucial last league game against Canterbury and which might give them a psychological edge over the opponents.  Both teams have very less to separate them in terms of batting and bowling performances in the tournament so far with team contribution leading to their success rather than individual performances. We expect Central Districts to win this match owing to their good all-round show with the bat and ball against Canterbury in both league games.

Central Districts will win the match & qualify for the finals
