In The Ford Trophy 2019-20, we have Central Districts squaring off against Canterbury at Pukekura Park, New Plymouth. This match will be taking place on February 09, 2020, at 3:30 AM IST.
Central Districts have had a rather disappointing tournament this year. They have only won two of the nine games they have played so far. They have 10 points in their tally. Central Districts have won against Wellington(once) and Otago(once). Meanwhile, they have resoundingly lost to Auckland(twice), Northern Knights (twice), Otago(once) and Wellington (once). Their first game against Canterbury ended in a no-result outcome. Their bowlers have been unable to take wickets early on while their batsmen have miserably failed to get runs on board. Even though individually a few of them shine, the performance as a team is lacking. Central Districts have almost zero chances of making it to the next stage of the competition but they may play a spoilsport to Canterbury on Saturday.
Canterbury is barely holding on to its 3rd spot on the Ford Trophy points table. They have won 4 games, while lost 4 and had one game ended in a no-result outcome. The upcoming game will be of prime importance to Canterbury, especially since the team will be looking to cement its spot in the top three. In their previous game when the two sides went against each other, the game ended in a no-result outcome thus making both sides unable to gauge each others’ strengths and weaknesses. Canterbury also lost their previous game, which was against Otago. The team will try to raise itself up from that loss, which might actually affect their mental stamina in the upcoming match.

Bowlers Will Williams and Henry Shipley are looking good with the ball. When it comes to batting the team’s opening order doesn’t look great. Again, batsmen are able to somewhat get runs on board individually but fail as a team. Captain Andrew Ellis has been able to lead with an example with the bat.
