Canterbury vs Northern Knights, Super Smash 2020-21

Canterbury will take on Northern Knights in the 16th match of the Super Smash 2020-21. The game will be played on Hagley Oval and is scheduled to begin at 3:20 PM local time.

Canterbury will be very happy how the things have fared in the tournament for them. With 3 wins and one loss against Central Stags, they’re well placed at the 3rd spot in the points table. 

They’ve very decent batting line up with Ken McClure, Chad Bowes, Jack Boyle, Daryl Mitchell, Cole McConchie, Leo Carter. All of them have performed well for Canterbury. 

The bowling also looks very good with Ed Nuttal, Matt Henry, Cole McConchie Todd Astle, and the all rounders. 

Northern Knights picked up their first win of the tournament against Central Stags and would like to bag a few more wins to give them a chance to qualify for the playoffs. 

Their win was the result of some outstanding bowling performance where they restricted 117-9 in their 20 overs. Brett Hampton continued his good run and picked up 3 wickets. Zak Gibson, Frederick Walker amd Henry Cooper too bowled well. 

As a batting unit, they made easy work of the target and finished the match in the 18th over.

The batting looks good on paper but apart from Tim Seifert, none of the other batsmen has kicked on to get a big one. 

Anton Devcich too has batted well in the last two games. It’s time for players like Clark, Brownlie and Cooper to stand up and deliver.

As of now, Canterbury looks a top team with plenty of quality in their batting and bowling department. For Knights, the fact that most of their batsmen have not scores much makes them the underdog in this match.
