At their home ground in Christchurch, Canterbury Kings will take on the Northern Knights. This will be their season’s third home game. In their previous home games, they have won and lost one game each and would like to win the remainder of their home games. So far, with three wins from four games, they have had a strong season and are ranked third on the table.
The Northern Knights haven’t had the best of seasons because they have lost four of their five games and are ranked fifth. With half of the league stages completed, if they qualify for the knockouts, they would like to turn things back on track in the second half of the season.
It is likely to be cloudy, but rain is not expected to occur. Although the temperature will hover about 20 degrees, the humidity will be high.
With par first innings score of 170 runs, the Hagley Oval track is a balanced one. When the Kings face off against the Knights on Thursday, a fair rivalry awaits between the bat and the ball.

With the Canterbury batting and bowling department, they look like an outstanding team with lots of consistency. Most of their players, which is a very positive indication, have performed well. The Northern Knights won their last Central District match, but their batsmen were not consistent. We’re going to back Canterbury to win this match.
