Northern Knights will take on the Canterbury Kings at Seddon Park, Hamilton for another fixture of Super Smash t20 league. Currently, Northern Knights are comfortably sitting at the top of the ladder with 20 points. Canterbury have had a contrasting season thus far and are languishing at the bottom of the table with only one win in five matches.

Both the teams will face each other for the second time in this tournament. Northern Knights won that contest by two wickets at Hagley Oval. Canterbury Kings failed to defend the total of 193-5 and the Knights managed to chase it down with two balls to spare. Brett Hampton’s half-century and Daniel Flynn’s quickfire 31 off 13 balls were pivotal in that run chase.

Knights have won their last four games in a trot and would be hoping to make it five in the upcoming match. Canterbury would try to play with more purpose to stay alive in the league.
