Northern Knights Preview

Northern Knights have finally got their campaign going and have registered wins in two consecutive matches. They produced an almost perfect game against Auckland on Monday where they bowled the opposition out for just 92 and then chased the target with 29 balls to spare and 6 wickets in hand. Opener Tim Seifert finally found his form with an unbeaten 38 off 42 balls on a tough pitch. This will give confidence to the batting unit which also includes Katene Clarke,  Jeet Raval, Joe Carter, and Colin de Grandhomme.

The Knights bowling unit was on fire in that game with Anurag Verma (3-14) and Frederick Walker (3-10) being the wreckers-in-chief. Off-spinner Ish Sodhi too showed why he is such a valuable asset in this form with an incredible spell of 2-5 from 5 overs. With Sodhi in form and the others getting among the wickets, the Knights now have one of the best bowling units in the league.  
 

Northern Knights Predicted Playing XI:

Katene Clarke, Tim Seifert (wk), Jeet Raval (c), Joe Carter, Colin de Grandhomme, Henry Cooper, Anurag Verma, Ish Sodhi, Zak Gibson, Frederick Walker, Scott Kuggeleijn

Canterbury Kings Preview

After losing their first game against Wellington, Canterbury has made a solid comeback with two back-to-back wins against Central Stags and Wellington. In the previous match encounter with Wellington, Canterbury first restricted the opposition to 151-9 and then chased the target down in just 16.3 overs with 6 wickets in hand. Opener Chad Bowes set the chase with a fantastic 62 off 41 balls. The show-stealer, however, was Cam Fletcher whose unbeaten 52 off 28 balls killed the chase. Captain Cole McConchie has also been in good touch and might score big here.

Canterbury’s bowlers too have been in fine form with the likes of Matt Henry and Ed Nuttall picking up regular wickets. The two opening bowlers, in fact, have scalped 6 and 4 wickets apiece in the last two games. Leg-spinner Todd Astle has been extremely impressive too and keeps things tight. In his last appearances, he has returned with figures of 13-2 from 4 overs and 19-1 from 4 overs respectively. His bowling in the middle overs will be crucial again. 
 

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Ken McClure, Chad Bowes, Leo Carter, Cole McConchie (c), Cam Fletcher (wk), Mitchell Hay, Henry Shipley, Matt Henry, Todd Astle, Blake Coburn, Ed Nuttall
