Head to Head


Northern Districts have won three of their last five against Canterbury but the last two went in Canterbury’s favour. Having already done the double on Districts, Canterbury will be confident of claiming a winner’s medal.

When they met earlier this season Canterbury won by nine wickets in the first match and by 48 runs in the second fixture.

Canterbury Form


Canterbury topped the Super Smash table ahead of Otago on net run rate. They won six of their 10 matches in the round robin phase.

In their last match, Canterbury bowled first against Otago in Dunedin. The hosts scored 166 runs in their 20 overs as Todd Astle took 3-24 in four overs.

Chad Bowes and Ken McClure made light work of the total, smashing their way to a 95-run opening stand in just nine overs. Bowes scored 52 runs while McClure ended on 68. The eight-wicket win with more than three overs to spare was as convincing as it gets.

Northern Districts Form


The Northern Districts finished the round robin stage in third place, two points off Canterbury and Otago. However, they managed to beat Otago in the eliminator to qualify for the final.

A superb batting display led to a total of 199 runs in 18 overs after rain intervened. Katene Clarke hit 73 off 39 balls while Tim Seifert managed 42 from 23 balls. Brett Hampton also scored 44 off 23.

Rain again intervened, leaving Otago to need 177 runs in 15 overs. They could only reach 160 which saw a 17-run win for the visitors.

Verdict

Canterbury hold value to win the final with Chad Bowes set to top score. Tim Seifert is tipped to top score for Northern Districts.
