It is a battle of the top and the bottom of the table teams. One side where Knights are on the top of the table, on the other side kings are down on number 6. But these are just early days of tournament and canterbury kings would want to win and get some points to jump off some positions which will help in securing qualification berths.
On the other hand, knights are enjoying a good tournament with 3 wins of their 4 matches with their players in great form. Kings will be glad about the return of their star Tom Latham, who recently carried his bat through in Pakistan test.
Players to watch
Tom Latham – Return of Tom will be greeted with both hands from Kings and there is no hiding the fact that he has been one of the biggest star and influential player kings have.
Daryl Mitchell – Mitchell has been in great form this year, first in English T20 then in super smash t20. He did well everywhere and is one of those players who picks themselves up in any fantasy team.
Canterbury Kings – Their major change is the return of Tom Latham, he is back in place of Tyler Lortan. Latham will be in starting 11 and will open the inning.
Northern Knights – Knights have announced the same squad as the previous match and they won’t tinker with their playing 11.
