Plunket Shield Match 4 Squad Comparison


Wellington has started the Plunket Shield 2019 season with a win in their opening match against Otago at the home venue. Logan van Beek and Malcolm Nofal led the bowling attack picking up 4 for 43 and 3 for 15 respectively bowling first. The bowling effort from Wellington wrapped up Otago 1st innings for 199 runs. The openers gave a pretty good start with a 75-runs partnership for the 1st wicket. Rachin Ravindra (76), number 3 batsman Devon Conway (96) and Tom Blundell (82) scored half-centuries for Wellington in the 1st innings.

While Malcolm Nofal was consistent with the ball picking up 4 for 15 in the second innings, Ben Sear joined the party with figures of 3 for 63. Rachin Ravindra too, picked up 1 wicket in his 7 overs as Wellington restricted the Otago 2nd innings to 219-10 and setting themselves up for a small target of 50 runs. However, Wellington lost 2 wickets in the small chase. Wellington must be a confident team going into the 2nd match with their top and middle-order consisting of in-form batsmen along with consistent bowling performance from Malcolm Nofal. Hamish Bennett, Logan van Beek, and Ben Sears will also be the crucial players in the Wellington bowling attack. While James Neesham was expensive in the 2nd innings, he can find a breakthrough for his side at times.


Canterbury was host to Northern Knights in their first match of the season. While the top 3 batsmen were out cheaply as Canterbury found themselves 50-3. Henry Nicholls (103) and skipper Cole McConchie (107) both scored hundreds at numbers 4 and 5 and got the Canterbury innings back on track. Cam Fletcher was unbeaten on 49 runs as Canterbury finished 390-10 batting first. While Tom Latham and Chad Bowes have a good record at Christchurch in the previous Plunket Shield seasons, it was the middle and lower-order that saved the day for Canterbury.

While Matt Henry, Ed Nuttall, Will Williams, Andrew Hazeldine and Todd Astle all picked up a wicket each, the combined bowling effort wasn’t enough. Canterbury conceded 498 runs for 6 wickets while the match ended in a draw. Canterbury has work to do in the bowling department and playing at Basin Reserve against Wellington would be a good opportunity given the last match at this venue saw Wellington pick 20 wickets. Canterbury’s strength lies in their batting line-up with a strong and in-form middle order. They would pose a challenge to the Wellington bowling attack and would not give in easily, making the opposition bowlers work hard for their wickets.
