cs vs ck Match Prediction & Analysis

Super Smash League has come to an end with just 3 league games remaining. Wellington & Canterbury have sealed the top two spots in the points table while Central Districts sit comfortably in the third position. They still can be eliminated from the group stages statistically if Northern Knights manage to beat Otago by a huge margin. Auckland and Otago are already out of play-off contention. Canterbury and Central Districts will take this match as a dress rehearsal form the elimination final and look to get the psychological edge over the opponents.

Central Districts top order batsmen fell like nine pins to leave their team reeling at 41/4. George Worker (49 runs) rebuild the innings with josh Clarkson (27 runs) despite wickets falling at the other end. Doug Bracewell late assault of 27-ball 53 runs took the team`s total to 164 runs in their 20 overs.

Their bowling unit was unable to control the opposition as they were clueless during the 107-run opening partnership which almost sealed the match. Joey Field and Jayden Lennox took a wicket each but never going to trouble the chase by any means. Doug Bracewell, Joey Field, and Blair Tickner must step up with the ball to help their team win this match.

Top players to bet on:

George Worker – Worker has scored 418 runs at a strike rate of 140 with a century and 2 fifties to his name. He will look to set the tone with his batting at the top of the order.  

Blair Tickner – Tickner leads the bowling charts with 14 wickets at an economy rate of 8 RPO. He must lead the bowling attack from the front in all important matches at the business end of the league.

Weather Conditions

Napier is expected to have a dark and cloudy weather with very less chances of rain on the match day. We expect no weather interruptions in this match despite the overcast conditions.  

Venue Details

Napier is a good batting track with true bounce and pace on offer. The pitch might slow down as the match progresses and bring the spinners in action especially in the second innings. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Batting is the best option in the important games as the pressure of chasing makes the batting unit to choke in crucial time. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.   

CS vs CK Winning Prediction

Central Districts have a strong batting line-up with a number of star players and easily pip Canterbury team on paper in terms of experience and performances so far. But their bowling unit still has some chinks to fix to avoid leakage of run flow. Canterbury will look to continue their winning momentum going ahead into the knockouts and will be free of qualification pressure in this math. We expect Central Districts to win this match and enter the elimination final.

Central Districts will win the match
