CD vs CTB Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Lopsided encounter sees top of the table meet bottom for the league standings this Monday.
When top of the points tally Central Stags take on Canterbury Kings, everything around this encounter looks to be a foregone conclusion. Where central Stags are sitting top of the pile, the Kings have failed to win even a single match till now to find themselves hammered down in the trenches of the points tally.
The second match of the day in the Super Smash League sees the contest between the sides from the Central and Canterbury regions continue with the women’s clash being followed up by the men’s tie. And like their women’s side, for the men contingent of the Canterbury setup, this is a clash which comes bearing with it colossal ramifications.
Much like their women counterparts, the Canterbury Kings find themselves languishing in last place in the league standings with the one win and one truncated result to their name. However, the side will not be massively deterred by their position though with the team cantering its way to 72-1 the last time around against Auckland aces before widespread rainfall intervened to bring their match to an early end.
Elsewhere, Central Stags defended their 183 runs against Wellington Firebirds perfectly the last time around to win by 24 runs to register their second win and move to the echelons of the league standings. And they’ll be looking to string together another win come today against a wavering opposition, a match when they make an advent in as outright favourites.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Despite this being the second contest of the day to be played over here, the bats are not going to be deterred in the slightest to come out and play their shots with ease. This is one of the finest batting tracks in the country, a surface where the ball comes onto the bat pristinely, allowing all the room and space in the world to find the fence.
The team winning the toss will be looking to come out and chase on this surface today with their being a likelihood of rain lashing the wicket.
