NK vs CS Prediction - Jan 14, 2022

We are past the midway mark in the Super Smash 2021 and as we move closer to the business end of the tournament, things are going to get increasingly interesting with respect to the qualification scenarios. Although Canterbury Kings and Northern Knights are sitting pretty at the top, they are by no means safe yet, at least mathematically. The next few matches are going to make things a lot clearer and all eyes will be on those matches.

Up next in the competition, Northern Districts are set to take on the Central Districts in a match that will be of vital significance for both these sides. The match is to be played at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Friday, January 14th, 2021.

NK vs CS Team Previews

Northern Knights

For quite a lot of time in the competition so far, Northern Knights were placed at the top of the points table, but with a washout in one of their recent matches, they have lost that crown to Canterbury Kings. A win here in this upcoming match, however, will not only push them to the top of the ladder but will also make them prime candidates for a spot in the next round.

As it currently stands on the points table, Northern Districts are placed at the second spot with four wins from six matches, aggregating a total of 18 points. Coupled with that, they have a terrific net run rate of 0.655, which just shows how dominant they have been.

The only match that Northern Districts have lost both came early in this competition, but they have been facing some heat in the fifty-over competition. In their last match in the Super Smash, however, the Northern Districts posted a sensational six-wicket win over Central Districts, overhauling the 145-run target with 13 balls to spare.

On paper, Northern Districts have a strong batting unit, but it's been the bowling that has been winning them matches in recent times. The same was on display in the last match as like the likes of Scott Kuggeleijn, Anurag Verma, Matthew Fisher, and Brett Hampton combined to keep Stags to a total of 145. Kuggeleijn was the pick of the bowlers as he returned with the figures of 22 for 3 in his 3 overs.

Even though Northern Districts weren't completely clinical with the bat, the likes of Jeet Raval, Joe Carter, and Henry Cooper just did enough to propel their side to a solid win. They would want to be more clinical in the matches to come, but if their bowlers are able to bowl as they have, their batsmen won't even need to hit the top gear.

All in all, Northern Knights have an immaculately balanced side that has just been brilliant. Batsmen and bowlers have both done a decent job and will be a really confident side going into the next match. With the likes of Colin de Grandhomme and Scott Kuggeleijn, they bat deep, and that is another one of their strengths. Given the side they have and the way they have played, getting past them is going to be a steep climb.

Central Districts

Central Stags had a terrific campaign last time around, but they are certainly struggling for consistency in this edition of the tournament. They are coming off a loss in their previous match and will want to get back to the winning ways quickly. A loss in this upcoming match would mean curtains for them, as far as the hunt for the playoffs is concerned.

As it currently stands, they are placed fourth on the ladder with three wins from a total of eight matches. Given the net run rate they have, they might find it hard to qualify from here even if they manage to register two wins in their two remaining matches.

Central Districts last registered a win almost a month ago as they defeated Otago Volts by a massive margin of 53 runs. Post that, however, they faced a couple of embarrassing defeats, which also pushed them from a decent position to a position of uncertainty, as far as the qualification scenarios are concerned.

One can argue that the Stags have been a tad unlucky as they have been faced with a few real individual flashes of brilliance. The same happened in their last outing as Canterbury Kings chased down a 217-run total with considerable ease. On paper, Central Districts have a decent side that has just lacked the execution skills so far. They would need a unified performance from their senior players not just for points but also to improve their net run rate. If they are able to do that, getting past them is going to be incredibly difficult.

NK vs CS Toss Prediction

Although this is expected to be a decent surface to bat on, we still do not expect a high-scoring match here. Knowing what to chase generally can be very important in the shortest format of the game and no captain will want to let go of that opportunity. Considering that and the fact that the surface is expected to get better with time, the captain winning the toss would want to field first.

Pitch and Conditions

There has been only one match played here at this venue in the Super Smash 2021 thus far and that proved to be a rather low-scoring encounter. Mount Maunganui, however, generally offers sporting conditions and we expect the same in this upcoming match as well. Also, the conditions generally get better to bat on here as the day progresses and with this being the second match of the day, we expect the same to happen in this match too. The team batting first would certainly want to put a total of at least 150 runs on the board.

    Best Batsman - Northern Districts - Jeet Raval



Jeet Raval may not be a well-known figure in this format of the game, he has certainly been very impressive in his last few outings across the format. He will be brimming with confidence and will be keen to go out there and score runs. He bats at the top, allowing himself the best opportunity to score big. Bet on Raval to be the best batsman of the day for Northern Districts.

  1. Casumo


    Scott Kuggeleijn - Total Wickets - Over 1.5



Scott Kuggeleijn has been pretty impressive with the new ball and at the death in the recent matches and will hold the key for the Northern Districts. He has plenty of experience up his sleeve and that should help him in this crunch fixture. Besides, he has been in fine form and will be looking forward to yet another good outing. Bet on Kuggeleijn to pick at least a couple of wickets here in this match.
