Northern Knights vs Central Districts Dream11 Preview
Northern Knights finished at the bottom of the points table last season with only 1 win from 6 matches and 3 losses. Whereas, their opponents in the opening Test of Plunket Shield 2020-21, Central Districts also lost 3 matches but finished at number 2 in the table with an extra win and a total of 57 points.
The only win of the season for Northern Knight came in the last match against Canterbury at Hamilton. BJ Watling scored a fifty in both innings while Henry Cooper scored a hundred in the second. While Joe Carter continues leading the Knights this season, Tim Seifert will not be part of the NK squad.
Moreover, in the absence of other batsmen like Dean Brownlie, Kane Williamson, and Daniel Flynn, Jeet Raval and Henry Cooper will have a big role to play at the top. Neil Wagner and Tim Southee continue to add strength to the NK bowling attack along with Ish Sodhi and Joe Walker. Bowling all-rounder, Scott Kuggeleijn’s pace will also be crucial for Knights.
