Plunket Shield Match 6 Squad Comparison

Northern Knights

Northern Knights kicked off the 2019-20 Plunket Shield season with a draw against Canterbury in an away match. While the match ended in a draw, there were some positives for the Northern Knights in their batting line-up. Tim Seifert and all-rounder Daryl Mitchell scored hundreds at numbers 2 and 6 respectively. While Kane Williamson was out soon for 26 runs, Mitchell Santner was out for 96 runs at number 7. Northern Knights finished with 498-6 as the match ended in a draw.

While the lead bowlers Trent Boult and Neil Wagner picked up 3 wickets each, Daryl Mitchell had figures of 2 for 14 bowling first. However, it took 122 overs for Northern Knights to dismiss the Canterbury side for 390 runs. The Northern Knights would be confident going into this match since Central Districts were all-out for 169 and 192 in the 1st and 2nd innings in the last match. While CD’s batting line-up failed, their bowling attack was impressive and Northern Knights would need their top-order to stick around longer and build partnerships at the start. The middle-order consisting of Kane Williamson, Dean Brownlie, BJ Watling, Daryl Mitchell is strong with the all-rounders in-form at numbers 6 and 7 for Northern Knights.

Central Districts

The table-toppers of last season with 5 wins and 2 losses, Central Districts have kicked off their 2019-20 Plunket Shield campaign with a loss against Auckland. In the last season, Central Districts and Northern Knights went head-to-head twice and both teams won 1 match each. While none of these teams have played a match at this venue last season, Central Districts have already lost an away game and will be keen on making a comeback.

The bowling attack is the only positive for CD at this point in time. William Luddick picked 6 wickets in the last match while Seth Rance and Blair Tickner picked 5 and 4 wickets each. While the bowlers were consistent in their performances, the top-order consisting of Greg Hay, Ben Smith, and Ross Taylor all failed in both innings. BD Schmulian and Dane Cleaver were the top scorers for CD in the middle. The top 3 batsmen would need to step up and perform to their potential. Greg Hay and Ross Taylor hold the key for Central Districts. The team needs big innings from their top 4 batsmen to lay a good foundation for a big total.

Our Prediction for Northern Knights vs Central Districts

Northern Knights are favorite to win the match

While Central Districts had a disappointing batting performance in the first match, Norther Knights’ bowlers’ weren’t as good as the Central Districts. However, given the batting form of NK and the fact that they’ve got experienced Test players in the bowling attack like Tim Southee, Trent Boult, and Neil Wagner makes them the favorite on the top betting sites in India.
