Canterbury will face Northern Districts in the final of the Ford Trophy. Both teams finished in the top two spots in the standings. As a result, there isn’t much to distinguish between these two teams. Canterbury came out on top of the standings. In all, they won seven games and lost three. With Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls back in the squad, anyone playing against them will have a tough time. They would like to keep it straightforward and bring the trophy home by playing another exciting cricket match.
Northern Districts defeated Wellington in the preliminary final. They have players who have scored in the hundreds, as well as a fearsome bowling team. They are the only team fighting against Canterbury and seem to be the best bet to defeat them in the final. They must have a lot of trust after defeating them in their previous match. Northern Districts have had a strong season overall, and they want to end it on a positive note by winning the trophy.
It will be partly cloudy, with about 22 degrees Celsius. However, no risk of rain is expected during the match.
The Hagley Oval’s surface is easier for batting. Both teams are mindful of the circumstances and will attempt to bat first. This season there have only been three List A games at this venue. As a result, the surface is expected to be new, making for another exciting cricket game.
