Daryl Mitchell made 68 not out from 39 balls against Otago Volts and is our tip for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Henry Shipley was almost unplayable on Sunday and finished with figures of 4-23. He is well worth backing as Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker against Wellington Firebirds.
Michael Bracewell is the leading run scorer in the competition and in exceptional form. He hit 63 from 38 balls against Northern Brave and is our pick for Wellington Firebirds’ highest run scorer against Canterbury Kings. Ben Sears can be expensive but is also the leading wicket taker for his side. He is a strong choice for Wellington Firebirds’ top wicket taker in this game.
There are plenty of players at the top of their game who will be on show in this match. Our prediciton for the Player of the Match Award is Daryl Mitchell.
