Plunket Shield Match 10 Squad Comparison

Central Districts

Central Districts kicked off their Plunket Shield 2019-20 season with a loss in the 1st match against Auckland. While CD was all-out for below 200 runs in both the innings, they bounced back in the next match. George Worker scored 130 openings the innings against Northern Knights, while BF Schmulian and Tom Bruce scored the fifties. In their loss against Auckland, Central Districts’ bowling performance was impressive as they reduced Auckland to 210-10 and 189-9. After posting 371-10 batting first against Northern Knights, CD continues their bowling form and wrapped up NK’s innings for 202 runs.

While Seth Rance picked 3 for 50, Raymond Toole, Willem Ludick, and Ajaz Patel picked 2 wickets each. However, CD’s batting collapsed in the second innings as they were all-out for 204 runs. Ben Smith and Tom Bruce scored the fifties for the side while BD Schmulian picked up 4 for 34 in the 2nd innings. Schulman cleaned the NK middle-order helping CD register their 1st win of the season. Ajaz Patel and Seth Rance would be the key bowlers while Patel is handy with the bat as well. In addition, George Worker and Greg Hay will have an important role to play at the top. While in case of early setbacks, the CD has Tom Bruce, BD Schmulian and Dane Cleaver in the middle to help steady the innings.


Following a draw in their opening match, Canterbury lost to Wellington in the next match by 44 runs. Canterbury’s bowling attack failed in the 1st match against Northern Knights conceding 498 runs for 6 wickets. It only got worse against Wellington as they Canterbury conceded 525 runs in the 1st innings for 7 wickets. While Tom Latham scored a double-hundred opening for Canterbury in the1st innings, the performance from the middle-order was disappointing. As a result, Canterbury finished 415-9 in the 1st innings.

Will Williams bounced back with the ball picking up 3 for 40 in the 2nd innings. While Canterbury bowlers did well in the 2nd innings restricting Wellington to 247-6, the target set for them was 357. Given the pitch conditions after 3 innings, such a target for an already struggling batting line-up was not an easy one. The batsmen from number 3 to 5 scored below 20 runs in the 2nd innings continuing their bad form. It is the lower and top-order that’s scored most of the runs for Canterbury. However, they would need a consolidated effort from their middle and top-order coupled with a strong bowling attack to defeat Central Districts.
