After rain played spoilsport in the last encounter, Central Stags are set to face Northern Braves again in Pukekura Park on Thursday. They are currently placed at the bottom of the table with 2 points, courtesy of the last match against Braves that produced no result. But they have the opportunity to start their campaign on a winning note against the Braves.
The Stags are a strong side on paper and an up-to-scratch contender for winning the trophy. Central Stags had a disappointing last season as they finished at the bottom of the table and won only two matches out of 10 games. But they are back with a revised team lineup this year and will be looking for a good start to their campaign in the tournament.
Top Batsmen for Central Stags–
- George Worker– 357 Runs in 9 Matches, 39.66 Average
- Josh Clarkson– 308 Runs in 9 Matches, 44.00 Average
Top Bowler for Central Stags-

The Northern Braves finished runners-up in the previous edition and will be keen to go one step further this season. They have a well-balanced squad to fall back on and will head into the season as one of the teams to beat. They have a resourceful batting line-up with the likes of Katene Clarke and Joe Carter while Anurag Verma will be leading their bowling attack again.
They faced a loss in their first match against Cantebury where batting first they posted a target of 239 as the Canterbury bowlers restricted the whole squad by the end of 32 overs. Jeet Raval provided a good start opening the batting scoring 74 Runs in 57 balls while Joe Carter and Henry Cooper completed their half-centuries.
In return, Canterbury successfully chased the target in the given overs while we witnessed a mediocre performance from their key bowler Anurag Verma who leaked plenty of Runs. They possess a deep-seated batting lineup but need to work on their execution on the match day.

- Henry Cooper– 405 Runs in 9 Matches, 50.62 Average
