CS vs CK Match Prediction & Analysis

With T20I Cricket World Cup nearing us, the focus is gradually shifting towards the shortest version of the game even in domestic cricket. We are into the last three matches in the Plunkett Shield as well and all six teams involved will want to finish the tournament on a high before starting prepping for the limited-overs matches to follow. The upcoming match in the competition will be played between Canterbury Kings and Central Stags at McLean Park, Napier, beginning on 3rd April 2021.

Team Previews

Central Stags

Just like Canterbury Kings, Central Stags too had a fantastic run in the shortest format of the game before bowing out in the knockouts. The Stags seemed to be having a decent run in the Plunkett Shield as well, but an unfavorable result in the last match has pushed them into the bottom half of the points table. Apart from a win, they now need other results to go their way for them to finish at the second spot on the ladder.

We don't see it often that a team declaring in their first innings managed to lose a match, but we saw it happen with Central Districts in the previous match. They did most things right in the last match, but perhaps a tad early declaration cost them the match. They would want to shrug off the narrow loss and will be looking to build on their tally of two wins.

On paper, Central Districts have a decent side with spectacular middle order. The likes of Brad Schmulian, Tom Bruce, Dane Cleaver, Dough Bracewell have been in terrific touch and will be looking to add some runs under their belt in this last Plunkett Shield match. Besides, they have ample experience available at the top with the presence of George Worker and Greg Hay. The Stags are a decent unit and might well have the best opportunity in a while to beat Canterbury Kings in the upcoming match.

Canterbury Kings

With five wins in seven matches, Canterbury Kings have been the best team of the tournament and their position on the points table reflects that. In addition to that, they had a terrific run in the Super Smash as well before they bowed out with grace in the grand finale. The Kings are yet to lose a game in the competition and will want to keep it this way in the final match as well.

Of the two draws that the Kings have featured in, one came in the last match wherein Canterbury Kings looked completely out of color. Their bowlers lacked sharpness and batsmen looked disinterested to bat out for the longer periods of the game. They were at the verge of scoring their first defeat of the tournament, but thanks to decent batting in the fourth innings, they managed to draw the game.

The draw in the previous match is likely to have acted as a wake-up call for the Kings and for that reason, facing them could be a tougher challenge in this upcoming contest. Having said that, they no longer have any strong motivation to win the upcoming match apart from keeping their record clean.

On paper, Canterbury Kings are a fantastic unit. They do not have the services of many star players but have managed to punch above their weight on almost all occasions in almost all formats in the season so far. They would want to continue doing that and if they manage to perform to their potential, Central Stags will have their work cut out.

CS vs CK Betting Tips

With Canterbury Kings coming off a deflating draw, Central Districts could not have a better opportunity to salvage a win and rise to the second spot on the ladder. Having said that, the Kings, given the tournament they have had, are likely to bounce back stronger after a shocking performance in the last match. We expect Kings to bounce back to their best and, therefore, they are our pick as favorites for the upcoming Plunkett Shield match.
