Northland – Canterbury Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 03:35

It turned out to be a nail-biting encounter when these two teams met five days earlier in which Knights toppled Kings by two wickets. Burger King Super Smash is past its halfway stage and continues to march ahead with a few important fixtures coming up in the coming week. Regardless of how disparate the forms of two sides have been, we expect a thrilling contest this time around as well. A win will almost ascertain a spot for the Knights in the semi-final whereas for Canterbury Kings, registering a win is imperative to continue to hang in the competition. The two sides will be in it for one common aim but different reasons. The first of which will be played between Northern Knights and Canterbury Kings at Hamilton on 16th of this month.

The Knights, who are in rampaging mood at the moment, are better-balanced and more confident unit as compared to the Kings. Clearly, if we were to go by the points table, picking the winner will be a walk in the part. Due to the above-mentioned reasons, the Knights are firm favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture as well. However, the past performances do not always indicate the future results. The last encounter between the two sides, in which Knights just managed to finish ahead, was one such example.

They also have plenty of momentum on their side with wins in their last four matches and we expect them to continue their winning run. Pressure, obviously, is going to be immense on them as they now need to win all of their remaining games to have any chance of advancing to the preliminary final. The Knights have the psychological advantage of having beaten the Kings earlier in the season. Reigning champions Knights are right on the track to a successful title defence after winning five of their first six league games. Canterbury Kings have started their Super Smash campaign in exactly the opposite fashion - they have lost four of their first five matches and are languishing at the bottom of the points table.

They are languishing at the bottom of the table with four points and need to win all of their upcoming matches to have any chance whatsoever of progressing to the next round. Canterbury's tale in the tournament has been exactly opposite to that of Northern Knights. After winning against Auckland Aces, which was their second match in the tournament, the Kings have failed to put anything further in the points column of the table.

Canterbury Kings had a very poor day with the bat in the last game against Central Districts as they could manage just 112 from their 20 overs. Ellis took a three-wicket haul last time against the Knights and he will look to replicate that bowling performance here. Bowes had smashed a 46-ball 67 in the reverse encounter and the Kings will be hoping for something similar from this opening batsman. Jamieson has been in tremendous form this Super Smash season and is leading the wickets charts with 13 wickets which includes a five-fer against Auckland Aces. They know that they will need to come up with a much better performance against the red-hot Knights, and for that, they will need strong contributions from Tom Latham, Chad Bowes, Cole McConchie and Andrew Ellis. The team will turn to Kyle Jamieson, Todd Astle and Andrew Ellis to do the job when it comes to bowling. Skipper McConchie has scored the most runs for the team with 170 runs in five matches.

Defending such a low total is always difficult to defend and although Kyle Jamieson, Todd Astle, and Andrew Ellis bowled hard and picked four wickets between them, their total proved too little to defend as Stags overhauled it with a little more than three overs to spare. Jamieson, who has been terrific in the tournament thus far, was the pick of their bowlers and returned with the impressive figures of 4-0-21-1.

NK vs CAN Head to Head

Daryl Mitchell, Brett Hampton and Corey Anderson are the pillars in the Knights' batting line-up and the team will expect at least one of them to make a 50+ score in this match. Abbott was the pick of the bowlers last time. Wagner, however, had a rough day with the ball and he will be backed by the Knights to bounce back. Among the bowlers, it will be up to Kyle Abbott, Neil Wagner and Daryl Mitchell to take wickets and put the brakes on Canterbury's scoring rate. Mitchell is amongst the leading run-getters this Super Smash with 212 runs in six matches and is coming off a fine 49 against Wellington Firebirds. The former South Africa international fast bowler impressed with figures of 2-19 from four overs in his very first game of the season. Hampton struck a half-century in the reverse fixture while Anderson is always a big threat to the oppositions due to his big-hitting ability.
