Weather Conditions

Hamilton is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with a slight cloud cover. Rain predicted on the previous days might hold some moisture on the track.

Venue Details

Hamilton pitch has a good balance between the bat and ball and we expect the ball to seam and swing around in the early overs of the match. We expect the average score to be around 160-180 runs on this track.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams will look to take advantage of the moisture content in early in the match and put the opposition batsmen in the firing line. Both captains will look to chase the target in this match.

NK vs CS Winning Prediction

Northern Knights failed take advantage of their superior position with both bat and ball and allowed the opposition to win the match.  They needed just 2 wickets with 24 runs required for the opposition at one point. Central Districts are in superb form with massive scores and dominating wins in their last matches. We expect them to continue their winning streak in this match too and further extend the agony of the Northern Knights. We expect Central Districts to win this match.

Central Districts will win their third match in a row
