We are done with the first half of the competition and the ongoing Plunkett Shield is beginning to take up shape beautifully. While Canterbury Kings seem to be running away at the top, the other teams are fighting it out in the middle part of the ladder. Up next in the tournament are Central Stags set to challenge Canterbury Kings in what is an important fixture for both sides. A win for Kings will take them further away from the second-best side whereas the Stags desperately need a win to stay in the reckoning. The match is to be played on 19th March 2021 at Hagley Oval, Christchurch.
Canterbury Kings were left disappointed in Super Smash as they bowed down at the very last in what was an interesting tournament for them. They have been pretty dominating in Plunkett Shield as well and will want to maintain their supremacy till the very end. In the five matches they have played up until now, the Kings have won four and have 80 points to their name.
The Kings are yet to lose a match in the tournament and the only drawn game they have featured in came in a long time ago. In their last match, the Kings rampaged past Otago Volts to post a mammoth 188-run victory. They were fantastic in both departments of the game and that is anyway apparent of the margin of their win.
On paper, Canterbury Kings have one of the better-balanced teams in the tournament. With the likes of Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, Daryl Mitchell, and Matt Henry, Canterbury Kings have four players who have international experience. Not only that, the likes of Cole McConchie, Leo Carter, and Cam Fletcher have extensive experience of first-class cricket and they all have been terrific in the tournament up until now. On the bowling front as well, the Kings have all their bases covered. Given how they have been doing of late, Central Stags are in for a difficult match.

Central Stags were pretty good in the Super Smash, but haven't really done as well in the longer version of the game. They are currently placed at the fourth spot on the ladder having won one match of their four. They currently have 27 points to their name, but a win here could very well bring them back into the contention.
The last to last match that the Stags played happened back in November 2020 wherein they were defeated by a margin of mere 40 runs by Northern Knights. Central Districts did reasonably well and arguably their decision to declare in the first innings cost them the match. They were left to chase 299 in the second innings and eventually lost the match by 40 runs.
In their last match, however, Central Districts posted a superb performance and registered a solid win over Wellington Firebirds by 60 runs. Their batting still looked a bit iffy, but thanks to their fantastic bowling, the Stags managed to salvage a win. They'll be a more confident unit with that win and will be looking to march ahead with the momentum they have.
On paper, the Stags have a reasonably good side with the likes of Ross Taylor and George Worker available at their disposal. They bat pretty deep with Doug Bracewell coming in at number eight. Besides, they have a terrific bowling attack with ample variety and sharpness available. Beating them is going to be incredibly difficult for a team languishing at the bottom of the ladder.
Greg Hay, George Worker, Ben Smith, Brad Schmulian, Tom Bruce, Dane Cleaver, Doug Bracewell, Josh Clarkson, Blair Tickner, Jayden Lennox, Raymond Toole.
This is arguably one of the most important fixtures of the tournament for Canterbury Kings`given that their survival pretty much hinges on the result of this match. Another loss here will possibly push them to the fifth spot and rising from there will be incredibly difficult. On the other hand, the Kings have looked fluent and will be confident of posting another good performance. For that reason and the ones mentioned above, a win for Canterbury Kings is certainly on the cards here.
