CTB vs WF, Elimination Final, Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Canterbury Kings is expected to win against Wellington Firebirds.
Backed by a recent win against the Otago Volts, Canterbury Kings will be heading into this contest as favorites. They displayed brilliant overall performance by both their departments and clearly look a more well-settled side than Wellington Firebirds. Their top-order performed up to the mark in the last game and the whole squad held their nerves in pressure situations.
Though the Firebirds have a deep-seated batting line-up with the likes of their skipper, Michael Bracewell, Finn Allen, and Troy Johnson they are overly dependent on them. When these three fail to perform on any given day their whole batting order collapses. Their lead bowler, Ben Sears also gave away a heap of runs during the last match.
Popular Betting Odds for CTB vs WF, Elimination Final, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman for Canterbury Kings- Chad Bowes (4.00)
Bowes played a splendid knock in a previous match against Otago hammering a half-century in 32 deliveries while adding 20 off 15 in the last match against Volts. He is currently the leading run-scorer for Canterbury after contributing 263 runs in 10 league games with a strike rate close to 146. The 29 year old South African has risen on many occasions before to score for his side in many games and will prove to be a good pick for this contest.
Top Batsman for Wellington Firebirds- Finn Allen (3.50)
Finn Allen has been in solid form with the bat in this edition, having mustered 268 runs at an unmatched strike rate of 197.05. He scored 68 against Otago while hammering 64 off 28 in the last match against Braves. He is a decent player at the top order and his hard-hitting abilities cannot be neglected. Allen is a safe pick here for this contest or you can alternate him with the leading scorer of the tournament, Michael Bracewell whose performance in the last match has been top-notch (63 off 38).
Top Bowler for Canterbury Kings- Henry Shipley (3.75)
Canterbury’s leading wicket-taker, Henry Shipley was exceptional with the ball in the last season as well. He is continuing with his lethal form this season as well and is currently the second leading wicket-taker in the tournament. Shipley has bagged 15 Wickets in the league stages and is expected to fare well in this contest against Firebirds.
Top Bowler for Wellington Firebirds- Ben Sears (4.50)
Sears is a safe pick here as he is the only bowler who has shown some economical figures in the past few fixtures. He bagged two scalps in the last match against the Braves but gave away heaps of runs at the same time. He will definitely make a comeback in this contest as he is way ahead of his peers, leading in the wicket tally having bagged 13 wickets in the league stages so far.
