Northern Knights Vs Canterbury Kings Prediction 21/1/21
Qualification for the play-offs is all but over for the Knights, as the maximum points they can get is 20.
With the top 3 sides all already on 20 points, the match is must win for the Knights.
It might be too little too late, but the Knights now do have Tim Southee and Trent Boult back in their bowling line up.
This now turns them into one of the stronger sides in the competition, and is probably why the Knights are the bookmaker’s favourites.
Both openers will be up against Boult and Southee, and in general I just believe the Knights will be too strong for the Kings.
