Nostragamus: Ford Trophy 2019 – NK vs CD Fantasy Preview

It’s not been the best of runs for Northern Districts so far in the 2019 Ford Trophy so far, currently languishing in the bottom half of the table with just 1 win in their 4 games so far. They will want to buck up soon, or else they say bye to their title hopes this year. They now play a game against their rivals, Central Districts.

Usually always a top contender in New Zealand domestic cricket, Central Districts has also had a poor season so far, with just 1 win in their 4 games as well. Both will be looking for a win but remember, some players are with the national side playing England.

  • Head to head in last 5 games, Northern Districts leads 2-1.
  • Seth Rance – 9 wickets in 4 games this tournament.
  • George Worker – 236 runs in 4 games this tournament.
  • Tom Bruce in this tournament so far – 56, 56, 36, 54.

Northern Districts

For my first bowling pick, I’ll have Anurag Verma in my team who picked 7 wickets in his first three games and then went wicketless in the fourth. Remember, he picked a 3-fer in a game against a full-strength England XI prior to that as well. Remember, he has a batting average of 73 this tournament too. Apart from him, Scott Kuggeleijn has plenty of experience including playing for the national side; he has 5 wickets and 32 runs in 3 games.

Brett Randell will be high on fantasy points with a 4-fer in the first game, but he hasn’t played since then, so don’t pick him. Daryl Mitchell bagged 3 wickets and 62* in his last game but he’s joined the national squad in place of Colin de Gradhomme, so he won’t be available either. Instead, pick all-rounder Anton Devcich who bagged 2/37 and scored 16 in his first game of the season, returning from the T10 league in Abu Dhabi.

Central Districts

First pick in my Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy team today has to be George Worker not only because he’s the leading run scorer in the tournament but also because he’s managed to pick up 4 wickets in 4 games so far. Josh Clarkson had a concussion in the last game while Ajaz Patel is also available. Greg Hay and spinner Jayden Lennox may replace them today.

Middle-order batsman Tom Bruce leads the team and he’s been brilliant so far this competition, with 3 fifties in 4 games so far in the 2019 Ford Trophy. All-rounder Kieran Noema-Barnett became available in the last game and he scored 32 runs in that game. The added bonus is that he can pick wickets too, and he won’t be in many fantasy teams since he’s played only 1 game this season so far.
