Northern Knights vs Canterbury, Super Smash 2020-21

Northern Knights picked up a decent win over Auckland and kept their hopes alive for a place in the playoffs. 

It’s going to be a very stiff battled between Otago and Northern Knights for the 4th spot in the points table thus every match from here on stands of utmost importance.

Canterbury have been brilliant in the tournament with 5 wins in 6 matches and just require a single win to make it through. But can they get past a strong Northern Knights?

Read our preview as Northern Knights take on Canterbury at Seddon Park in Hamilton. The match is scheduled to get underway at 7:00 PM local time

Northern Knights picked up a crucial win over Auckland in the rain curtailed match. The win has kept them alive in the tournament but they need to win almost every game from now onwards to make it through.

The inclusion of players like Kane Williamson, Jeet Raval, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee and Trent Boult have spooked life in their team. On paper, they’re second to none in terms of quality. 

For Canterbury, they continued their juggernaut and defeated Wellington by 4 wickets in their last match. However, they would now be worried over the form of Chad Bowes and Ken McClure. 

The duo hasn’t done much after the first couple of game. Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie have been the saviour for them in the last few games. 

In the bowling department, apart from Daryl Mitchell, other bowlers have looked ordinary. So even though Canterbury have won a lot of matches, we see few issues in their team which they need to address before the next game.

As of now, the sheer quality in Northern Knights have forced us to go with them as the winner of this match.

Northern Knights on the other have plenty of international quality in their team with players like Kane Williamson, Tim Seifert Colin de Grandhomme, Trent Boult, Tim Southee. They’re our favourites for the match.

Final Verdict

Northern Knights to beat Canterbury at 1.61 on Bet365

NK vs CAN Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Tim Seifert at 9.0 is a great option. He’s been very good in the tournament and is the top scorer for Northern Knight.

  • Batsmen

    Kane Williamson at 10.0, Jeet Raval at 9.0 and Ken McClure at 8.5 will be our batsmen. If Williamson is playing, he has to be in the team. Jeet Raval scored a 70 against Canterbury in their previous clash. Ken McClure is selected to manage the credits. 

  • All rounder

    Daryl Mitchell at 10.0, Cole McConchie at 9.5, Colin de Grandhomme at 9.5 and Scott Kuggeleijn at 8.5 are our all rounders. Mitchell has been terrific both with the bat and ball in almost every match he’s played while McConchie has two good knocks in his last two games. We have lot of expectations from Colin de Grandhomme in the upcoming game while Kuggeleijn is a very good bowler too.

  • Bowlers

    Trent Boult at 9.0, Matt Henry and Tim Southee at 8.5 will form a quality pace attack. All the three bowlers are of top quality and are expected to perform well.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Kane Williamson is our preferred captain while Daryl Mitchell will be the vice captain.

NK vs CAN Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jeet Raval, Ken McClure, kane Williamson

  • All Rounder:Daryl Mitchell, Cole McConchie, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin de Grandhomme

  • Wicket Keeper:Tim Seifert
