Plunket Shield Match 2 Squad Comparison


Cole McConchie will be leading the Canterbury side into Plunket Shield 2019-20 season with 8 all-rounders in the squad including himself. Bowling all-rounders Ed Nuttall, Andrew Ellis, and Henry Shipley were quite successful with the ball last season. While Chad Bowes and Andrew Hazeldine are the only batting all-rounders in the squad, along with Theo van Woerkom and Todd Astle, Canterbury has 6 bowling all-rounders.

Stephen Murdoch, Chad Bowes, Jack Boyle are key players to watch out for in Canterbury batting line-up. Wicket-keeper batsman Cam Fletcher is reliable in the middle and has shown great temperament in the past season. Canterbury had finished 2nd in the points table last season with 4 wins and 2 losses while their match against Northern Knights at this venue had ended in a draw. While Matt Henry is missing from the squad, Fraser Sheet, Will Williams, and Cole McConchie will be leading the bowling attack for Canterbury.

Northern Knights

While Canterbury is loaded with bowling options, Northern Knights have a strong batting line-up with all-rounders like Anton Devcich, Daryl Mitchell, skipper Daniel Flynn, Dean Brownlie, and HR Cooper all of whom have time and again showed their batting prowess. Other than Cooper and Flynn at the top, wicket-keeper batsmen BJ Watling, Peter Bocock, and Tim Seifert are all crucial in the middle-order. While Bocock had success last season, Watling showed his batting skill at the international stage recently.

Neil Wagner and Zak Gibson would be the lead bowlers for Northern Knights. Wagner’s short ball had troubled the Bangladeshi side when the latter toured New Zealand last year. Along with Zak Gibson and Brett Randell, bowling all-rounder Brett Hampton would allow the captain for more options in the bowling department. However, Northern Knights will be going into this season with 3 batting all-rounders and 1 bowling all-rounder. The regular bowlers James Baker, Wagner, and Gibson will need to deliver what’s expected of them to make up for the lack of more all-rounders in the squad.
