The match between Northern Knights and Canterbury Kings would be an encounter between the top and bottom teams of the Super Smash.


Canterbury Kings are comfortably placed at top of the points table with five wins from six matches. On the contrary, Canterbury Kings have suffered defeats in four out of their five matches and are under tremendous pressure to reverse the trend. The two teams recently met in a close encounter when the Knights got the better of the Kings by two wickets.

Northern Knights will bank on Daryl Mitchell, Brett Hampton and Corey Anderson with the bat. Even if only one of them goes past 50, the team can post a decent total on the board. Mitchell is part of the list of the highest run-getters this season with 212 runs from six matches and is coming off a 49 against Wellington Firebirds.

As far as their bowling is concerned, Kyle Abbott, Neil Wagner and Daryl Mitchell will share the workload. Abbott was very impressive in his first match and returned with figures of 2-19. Although Wagner did not have a great game, he has the skill to bounce back.

Canterbury Kings could only manage 112 in the last game against Central Districts and would have to turn things around in order to have a chance this season. It is not as if they don't have the quality. In Tom Latham, Chad Bowes, Cole McConchie and Andrew Ellis, they really have some skillful batsmen. The need of the hour is consistency. Kyle Jamieson would lead their bowling attack.
