Canterbury Kings Form


The Canterbury Kings find themselves third on the Super Smash table, four points behind the Wellington Firebirds. They have won five of their seven matches but will want t bounce back from their latest one against the Northern Knights.

The Kings were unfortunate after rain interrupted their batting innings against the Knights. Eventually they scored 118 off 15 overs with Todd Astle top scoring with 36 runs.

The D/L method was used to set the Northern Knights a total of 92 runs in 11 overs. The Kings bowlers could not contain a dominant Knights batting outfit which contained New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson.

In the end the Knights won by eight wickets in the final over. More runs will be required by the Canterbury Kings top order as we head towards the playoffs.

Kings Team News


The Canterbury Kings are not expected to make any changes. Their internationals are back with Daryl Mitchell already showing the difference he can make.

Matt Henry struggled in the last match but remains the key bowler in the Kings side.
