CK vs NK Team Previews

Canterbury Kings

The Canterbury Kings outfit played their last game against Auckland Aces earlier today. This day/night game saw Canterbury Kings scoring 140 runs from this quota of 20 overs while losing five wickets. The Auckland Aces team chased this target in 15.2 overs, losing just two wickets. This eight-wicket victory was achieved with as many as eight wickets and 28 balls to spare. Finn Allen was adjudged Player of the Match for 78 runs from 46 balls. As a result of this match, Canterbury is now occupying third position in the points tally with 12 points.

While batting first, Canterbury Kings lost their openers for nothing much on the board. Henry Nicholls did not score too many runs, but Daryl Mitchell provided the real impetus to the Canterbury innings. He scored 57 runs from 50 balls with three fours and two sixes. Michael Rippon also scored a brief 25 from an even number of balls. This target would never be enough, but Zakary Foulkes and Matt Henry bowled tight lines during the chase. Two wickets fell during this chase, and Foulkes and Rippon picked them.

Northern Knights

The Northern Districts outfit also goes into this game after a defeat in their last match. They played their last game against Otago Volts. This game was played in Hamilton, and the ND side scored 128 runs in their first innings. The Otago Volts team chased this target quickly in 17 overs to register a comprehensive 8-wicket win over Northern Districts. The victory was materialized with 18 balls and eight wickets to spare. Tim Seifert played a helpful cameo upfront for Northern Districts.

Seifert hit 37 runs from 24 balls with four sixes, but the wickets kept tumbling at the other end, with the top order in shambles. After Seifert got out, only Mitchell Santner played a blinder of an innings with 49 runs from 34 balls with three fours and three sixes. Only three batters from the ND team reached double figures viz Seifert, Santner, and Katene Clarke. The entire ND team was bowled out in 18.3 overs. During the defense, the ND bowlers picked up an early wicket of Hamish Rutherford. Still, apart from Mitchell Santner, none of their bowlers could make much of an impression on the opposition, and there were not enough runs on the board in any event.

Northern Knights Playing 11

Tim Seifert, Katene Clarke, Jeet Raval, Joe Carter, Henry Cooper, Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Pringle, Kristian Clarke, Frederick Walker, Matthew Fisher.

CK vs NK Betting Tips

The Northern Knights are off to a terrible start to their campaign in this year's Super Smash. They have succeeded in winning just a single game thus far in four attempts and are lying at the bottom of the points table. On the other hand, the Canterbury team has done much better, although they lost their last game in the league stages. So, we will bet with Canterbury to win this encounter. There is nothing much in it, though, and ND can quickly put one across the Canterbury team.
