Canterbury Kings are third in the Super Smash T20 points table with two wins from as many games. They defeated Auckland Aces in their previous game by 10 wickets. All-rounder Daryl Mitchell is all set to make his debut for the Kings in the Super Smash T20.
Central Stags, on the other hand, are placed in the second position on the points table with three wins and two losses from their five games. They are coming into this clash on the back of a massive 53-run victory over Otago Volts in their previous game. The Stags will be further strengthened by the inclusion of experienced Kiwi campaigner Ross Taylor.
This Super Smash T20 match promises to be an interesting affair between two evenly-matched sides.

Match: Canterbury Kings vs Central Stags, Match 13
Date: 10th January 2021, 11:40 AM
Venue: Hagley Oval, Christchurch
The track at the Hagley Oval has something to offer for both the batsmen and the bowlers. The pacers will enjoy bowling on this surface and can procure some initial swing with the new ball. The spinners will come into play in the latter half, but they will need to vary their pace to scalp some wickets.
However, with the ball coming onto the bat nicely, the batsmen should be able to put up good runs on the board. The average first innings score at this venue is 189.
