Match 10 of Super Smash 2020-21 has the Northern Knights taking on Central Stags at Seddon Park on Monday.
The Northern Knights have been woeful so far in Super Smash 2020-21, with no wins in three games. Despite Tim Seifert scoring runs for fun, the rest of the Knights line-up hasn't come up with a complete performance to complement their star batsman.
They face a stern test in the form of Central Stags, who lie in the top half of the Super Smash table with eight points from three games.
George Worker has been uber-impressive at the top of the order with 177 runs, while the likes of Tom Bruce and Ajaz Patel have also starred with bat and ball respectively.
The reverse fixture between the two sides saw the Central Stags thump the Knights by a margin of 45 runs despite Anton Devcich scoring a whirlwind hundred.
With momentum and form on their side, the Stags would be eyeing another win in Super Smash 2020-21, although the Knights aren't pushovers by any means.
This encounter promises to be another exciting one in Super Smash 2020-21.

Match: Northern Knights vs Central Stags, Match 10
Date: January 4, 2021, at 11:30 AM IST
Venue: Seddon Park, Hamilton
The second T20I played here between Pakistan and New Zealand saw pacers dominate the proceedings, as the hosts chased down 163 with relative ease. A similar sort of wicket is expected, with back-of-a-length deliveries key at this venue.
The spinners won't get much purchase at this ground. So variations in pace will be the way to go for them. With this being an evening clash, both teams will want to chase upon winning the toss as the pitch plays slightly better under lights.
