  • Head to head in last 5 games, these two are tied 2-2.
  • In the reverse fixture, Canterbury won by 84 runs.
  • In 8 completed games so far, 5 have been won batting first.
  • Anurag Verma – 17 wickets in last 10 professional games.


37-year old Andrew Ellis brings a lot of experience to the side, having played 20 games for New Zealand as well. Here, he has 7 wickets in 3 games and he’s also got scores of 4* and 14* so far, meaning he can add a few runs to the total if required. Another player to pick with the ball is Andrew Hazeldine who has managed 5 wickets in the 2 games he’s played so far. Both haven’t gone wicketless yet.

Jack Boyle is the team’s highest scorer with 147 runs in 3 games, but most of it came in one innings of 126. Hence, I’d rather pick South African born Chad Bowes who has 124 runs in 3 games but has been more consistent this tournament. Pick Todd Astle as your all-rounder as he has 2 wickets and 68 runs in just 2 games played so far and also has international experience of late.

Northern Districts

Their highest wicket-taker so far has been Anurag Verma with 7 scalps in 3 games, and at least one wicket in each game. Prior to this, he picked up a 3-fer against a full strength England XI side in a T20 warm-up game, so he can’t be left out for sure. Leg-spinner Ish Sodhi has had a poor recent few months with only 6 wickets in his last 10 games, but I’ll pick him for all his experience around the world.

Another very valuable player for your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy team is Daryl Mitchell who made his T20I debut earlier this year and has played 9 international games since then. After a failure with bat and ball in his first game here, he picked 3 wickets and scored 62* in the last game, so he’s even worth selecting as your fantasy team captain. Their top scorer so far is Kristian Clarke, who has a lowest of 22 in 3 games.
