Napier, January 25 at 11:40 AM IST
The table-toppers Northern Knights and Central Districts will lock horns at McLean Park, Napier on Friday morning in the 22nd fixture of Super Smash T20. Both the sides started their campaign against each other and this will be their second head to head encounter in this edition.
With six wins in seven encounters, Knights are going through a purple phase and have grabbed the top spot. Their only defeat so far has come against Central Districts and they would be looking to avenge their loss this time. Knights registered 6 runs win over Canterbury under the DLS method in the last encounter and are on a five-match winning streak.
Central Districts, on the opposite, have managed four wins and two defeats in seven outings while their one encounter with Otago got abandoned due to rain. They are also on a three-match winning streak and would be delighted to face Knights for once more.
Both the sides met first at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui where Central Districts turned out to be the winner by 5 wickets. Having opted to bowl, Central Districts restricted Knights for 156 with the help of Blair Tickner’s (3-32) and George Worker’s (2-18).
Coming to chase, Districts faced early jolts as they were reduced to 27-3 but skipper Tom Bruce (88* of 52) helped the side secure 5 wickets win with four balls to spare.
