NK vs CK Match Prediction & Analysis

We are almost at the back-end of the Super Smash and there is still tough competition for the top three spots. Wellington Firebirds, Central Stags, and Canterbury Kings are in a pretty comfortable position and the other two teams below them desperately need a couple of wins to announce their contention for the playoffs.

Northern Knights haven't had a memorable tournament up until now and would need to register a string of wins going forward. They are set to take on Canterbury Kings in the upcoming match, which is to be played on 21st January 2020 at Seddon Park, Hamilton.

Team Previews

Northern Knights

If there's no other cricket being played across the globe, Northern Knights probably have one of the most eye-catching teams in the world. However, they do not always have the luxury of playing all their players and that is what has hurt them the most in this match. The Knights are currently languishing among the bottom two teams on the ladder and desperately need to win all of their remaining matches. They have eight points to their name and a pretty poor net run-rate.

The Knights showed their class in the last match when they defeated Auckland Aces in a rain-inflicted encounter. Chasing a total of 107 from 10 overs, the Knights batsmen started in an aggressive fashion and continued their aggression right through. Thanks to a terrific cameo by Mitchell Santner, the Districts finally won the match with one ball to spare and five wickets in hand. Santner scored 39 off 16 deliveries.

Earlier with the ball, their bowlers did a decent job to keep even the potent lineup of Auckland Aces. The return of Trent Boult and Tim Southee immediately made a telling impact as together they picked up two wickets and didn't give away many runs. Santner has already been pretty impressive with the ball and a lot will depend on him going forward as well.

All in all, the return of New Zealand nationals has certainly imbibed a lot of confidence into the side. They now appear to be a lot more potent and a lot more versatile team. Given the strength they have on paper, beating them isn't going to be easy for the Kings.

Canterbury Kings

With a fantastic run in the first half of the tournament, Canterbury Kings have certainly impressed one and all. They are currently placed at the third spot on the points table with 20 points to their name and a decent net run-rate of 0.685. Another win here on will ensure their qualification to the next round and that is what they'll be aiming for in the upcoming match.

Even though the Kings are third on the points table, they have arguably the second-best team in the tournament. They have been defeated only once - by Central Stags. The Kings' recent win came over Wellington Firebirds, who are reigning the points table at the moment.

Bowlers did an incredible job for the Kings to keep Firebirds to a manageable total of 154 before the batsmen chased it down. They encountered a few hiccups during the chase but the depth in their batting unit came to their rescue as Daryl Mitchell, Cole McConchie, and Jack Boyle played brief little cameos.

On paper, the Kings do not have any star-power, but they have an incredibly well-balanced side. They have the right men available to the required jobs and that is what has thrust Kings to the position they are in. Should they continue to perform in the manner they have, beating them isn't going to take a colossal effort.

NK vs CK Betting Tips

It is an important game for Northern Knights as a loss here will mean curtains for them. The good news for them is that they have a full-strength side available and are coming off a confidence-boosting win in their previous match. Having said that, they'll be up against one of the best teams of the tournament, and taking them on is not going to be easy. The Kings have done incredibly well in the tournament and almost all of their players seem to be performing pretty well. Considering that as well as the momentum they have, our money will be on a Kings' win. Back Canterbury Kings to come out on top in this upcoming fixture.
