Canterbury vs Central Stags, Super Smash 2020-21

Canterbury will take on Central District in the 13th match of the Super Smash 2020-21. The game will be played on Hagley Oval and is scheduled to begin at 7:10 PM local time.

Canterbury will be playing their first match after 7 days. Their last match against Auckland was reduced to 5 overs per match so they haven’t played a lot of cricket in the tournament.

Central Stags on the other hand have played 5 matches and with three win and two losses are settled at the second spot in the points table.

They’ve been very good in the tournament and probably have the best batting line up among all teams. George Worker continued his scintillating run and smashed a brilliant hundred as they thrashed Otago by 53 runs.

Will Young, Josh Clarkson also looked good with the bat as the Stags posted a mammoth 223 in their 50 overs. Their batting will be further boosted by the return of Ross Taylor

With the ball in hand, Doug Bracewell, Blair Tickner, Ajaz Patel, Joel Field, all bowled brilliantly to restrict Otago to 170-8.

For Canterbury, the openers, i.e Chad Bowes and Ken McClure have been top class in the two matches they’ve played.

Other batsmen haven’t got much opportunity but Jack Boyle, Leo Carter and Cole McConchie are quality players that are capable of turning the game on their heads. 

In the bowling department ED Nuttall, Matt Henry, Cole McConchie, Will Williams and Todd Astle forms a pretty solid bowling line up.

Overall, we see Central Stags as a very strong team and even though Canterbury have won both of their matches, we’re unsure about the form of their players. We’d stick with Central Stags as the winner of this match.

Canterbury vs Central Stags Prediction

Central Stags boast of a quality batting and have been brilliant in the tournament. Canterbury on the other hand have won their both matches but they’ve not played enough cricket.
