Pitch and Conditions

The Hagley Oval wicket has a reputation for being an even playing field for both batsmen and bowlers. There is plenty of juice available for the new ball bowlers upfront. But this wicket will ease out into a good batting surface later on. Bowlers must maintain good line and length to do well on this track.

We are expecting cool and pleasant weather for this game in Christchurch. The conditions will be sunny, and there is no chance of rain interruption during the game. There might be some cloud cover, but nothing to trouble the batters much.<br />

Although both these teams have nearly identical records in Super Smash, Canterbury bowlers were on fire in their last and curtailed match. This in-from bowling attack might work for the Kings and get them to a victory.
