Central Districts Vs Canterbury Kings Prediction 11/2/21
This is the penultimate match of the 2020/21 Super Smash season. The group stage is now over, and this is the preliminary final between second and third.
The winners of this, will play Wellington Firebirds in the final this Saturday at the Basin Reserve.
The Stags had the slightly better end to the group campaign. The won two of their last four, compared to the Stags who only won one of their final four group matches.
Crucially, the last of those four matches was between the same two sides in Match 28. On that occasion, the Stags won comfortably, beating the Kings by 30 runs, thanks mainly to Ross Taylor’s 65 from 36 balls.
The Kings batsmen never got going in the run chase, and their misfiring batsmen has been the story of their last few matches.
Only in the 6 wicket win over Otago, have the Kings batsmen done their job recently. And Otago Volts were the worst side in the competition.
We think the Stags will make it three from three over the Kings this season, and they are our prediction to win this and make Saturday’s final.
