The top two teams of the season will be clashing once again as the league stage hurtles towards its end. Northern Knights and Canterbury Kings are at the No.1 and No.2 place in the points table respectively. The Knights have 6 wins and 1 loss from 8 games at a net run rate of +0.661 while Canterbury has 6 wins and 2 losses from 8 games at a net run rate of +0.998. The two teams have clashed once before this season where the Knights emerged as the winners but Canterbury now has a chance to move to the top place with this game.

Canterbury Kings Preview

The Northern Knights are in sensational form at the moment and seem unstoppable. They have won 6 matches in a row, the last of which was against Wellington. After bundling out the opposition for just 104, the Knights reached the target with one over and 6 wickets to spare. Colin de Grandhomme top-scored with an unbeaten 41 off 46 balls on a tough wicket, which will really please the team.

De Grandhomme is now the leading run-getter of the team this season with 205 runs at a strike rate of 143, followed by Joe Carter (174 runs at 106) and captain Jeet Raval (129 runs at 113.15). Tim Seifert’s lack of form remains a concern but maybe this will be the game he breaks the shackles.

The team’s bowling has been excellent. Anurag Verma, who is fresh from a spell of 3-25 in the last game, is their best bowler with 14 wickets at an economy of 7.09. His partnership with Scott Kuggeleijn (9 wickets at 9.16) has been the highlight of the season for the Knights. Spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner have also formed a deadly combination.

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Jeet Raval (c), Tim Seifert (wk), Joe Carter, Mitchell Santner, Colin de Grandhomme, Henry Cooper, Scott Kuggeleijn, Anurag Verma, Ish Sodhi, Joe Walker, Matthew Fisher

Northern Knights Preview

Canterbury Kings too are on a winning spree and have won their 4 games consecutively. Their last victory came against Auckland earlier this week. After being bowled out for 154 on a slow wicket at Hagley Oval, Canterbury restricted the opposition to 136-7. While their batting wasn’t the best in the match, Canterbury’s bowlers delivered. Henry Shipley was the pick of the lot with a spell of 3-14 from 4 overs. Shipley now has 10 wickets in the season at an economy of 7.60. Ed Nuttall (15 wickets at 9.10) and Matt Henry (11 wickets at 6.33) are their other go-to bowlers. Leg-spinner Todd Astle’s contribution (10 wickets at 6.14), too, has been immense. 

The heroes of Canterbury’s batting unit this season have been Cam Fletcher (221 runs at a strike rate of 147.33) along with opener Chad Bowes (185 runs at 148) and captain Cole McConchie (145 runs at 119.83). Henry Shipley too has made some valuable contributions down the order at a strike rate of nearly 140. The addition of Tom Latham at the top will bolster their batting unit further,

Weather Conditions

The pitch at Hagley Oval is great for batting first but tends to slow down in the second half of the game. Slower bowlers and seamers will get more purchase during the second innings.

The weather at Christchurch on the day of the game is likely to be partly sunny.
 

Venue Details

The highest score this season at the Hagley Oval has been 177/7 by Wellington. Totals between 170 and 189 have been achieved 7 times here. The team batting first in this game will look to set a target of around 170-180 runs.

Toss: To Bat

All the matches played on this venue this season have been won by the team batting first. Expect the captain winning the toss to bat first in this game.

In the last 5 encounters between Northern Knights and Canterbury Kings, the Knights have won 3 matches while Canterbury has clinched 2. This will be an intense contest as the two best teams of the season try to topple each other. The Knights have a great bowling unit and Canterbury’s batting looks really strong. The Knights, though, have found ways to win matches from every situation and will have a slight edge in this contest.

Back the Northern Knights as the winners of the match.
