We are down to the final stages of the league stage in Super Smash and things appear pretty much same as they were in the first half of the tournament. Wellington Firebirds and Otago Volts are at the top of the ladder with Central Stags and Auckland Aces right behind them. The Kings, who started off pretty well, have now dropped to the fifth spot and will be looking to get into the mix with a win in their upcoming encounter. They are set to take on Central Stags in the upcoming encounter, which is to be played at Hagley Oval, Christchurch, on 7th January. While the Kings occupy the lower position on the ladder between the two sides, the importance of this match would be more for the Stags as they will have only one match to go after this in the league stage.
After having a terrible spell of two consective losses, Canterbury Kings finally registered a win in the tournament, consequently taking their points tally to ten. They now have two wins to their name in six matches and will be looking to add another four points to their tally.
The Kings are coming off a superb win in their last encounter wherein they rampaged past Northern Knights' towering total. Bowling first on an exceptional surface to bat on, their bowlers were left high and dry as the Knights made merry on a beautiful day. Barring Colin McConchie and Andrew Ellis, all their bowlers were carted away for an economy rate of over eleven.
The chase of 220 was always going to be steep and needed special effort. WIth Boyle and Bowes going berserk in the first six overs, the Kings got off to a flying start. Back to back wickets of Chad Bowes & Stephen Murdoch pushed the Kings on the back-foot, but the scintillating knocks from Colin McConchie and Leo Carter ensured a smooth sail for the Kings. Leo McConchie stayed not-out till the end with a 25-ball 49. Leo Carter was the man who made all the difference as he smashed 70 off just 29 balls, including six sixes in an over.
Jack Boyle, Chad Bowes, Stephen Murdoch, Cole McConchie, Leo Carter, Cameron Fletcher, Andrew Ellis, Henry Burton Shipley, Sean Davey, Will Williams, Ed Nuttall.
Although the Stags are in a pretty good spot on the ladder as of now, a couple of losses would certainly put their qualification chances in jeopardy. The have points points to their name with a terrific net run-rate of 0.526, but the Aces, the Kings, and the Knights are breathing down their neck.
Central Stags got off to a phenomenal start in the tournament, winning both of their first two matches, but a wash-out followed by three consecutive losses pushed them to the third spot on the ladder. Their recent win over Otago Volts helped them with the standings and they'll be looking to get at least four more points to ensure their progress to the next round.
Chasing a total of 184 against the Volts, the Stags got off to a poor start as they lost both their openers inside the first five overs. Their experienced middle-order coupled with their deep batting lineup came to their rescue as the likes of Tom Bruce, Kieren Noema Barnett, JA Clarkson, and WC Ludick chipped in with cameos to take their side home. Kieren Noema Barnett was the pick of their batsmen as he returned with the individual score of 55, coming in just 30 deliveries. The Stags eventually completed the chase with five wickets in hand and an over to spare.
Earlier in the day, with the ball, the Stags' bowlers did a remarkable job to pull Volts back after they got off to a powerful start. At one stage, the Volts were going strong with 124 runs on the board in just 12 overs, before Ajaz Patel and K Noema Barnett brought them back in the game with a few tight overs. They gave away just 60 runs in the last six overs and that proved to be the turning point of the match.

With playoffs not too far away, the importance of this game is massive. Central Stags are in a decent position, but a loss here would put them under a lot of pressure in their last match. Even though the Kings have four matches at their disposal, they'd want to finish the business and confirm a playoff berth as soon as possible. Considering how the two teams have done of late, it's hard to choose between the two. However, with a solid batting lineup that goes deep, the Kings are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
