The defending champions Northern Knights are on the top of the points table with three wins from the four matches they’ve played thus far. They sneaked in a 2-run win against the Auckland Aces in the previous match at the Seddon Park. Their only loss came against the Central Districts which was their 2nd game of the season. The Knights go with an unchanged 12-man squad against the Canterbury Kings for the game on Wednesday.

Canterbury began with a 5-wicket defeat to Otago but bounced back in the first T20 game of the new-year where Kyle Jamieson picked up six wickets for seven runs in his four overs. However, they fell apart in the game against the Wellington Firebirds conceding 200/5 and were bundled out for 135 in response with their skipper Cole Mcconchie alone scoring 83. Tom Latham is in line to play against the Knights as he replaces Tyler Lortan in the 12-man squad.
