CTB vs CD Dream11 Prediction: With hardly a few matches remaining before the league stages come to an end, Central Stags would be taking on Canterbury Kings in their second encounter of the season in what could be perceived as a nerve-wracking encounter for the fans to witness.
Central Stags, led by Tom Bruce, have had their share of ups and downs in the concurrent season of Super Smash with three wins in eight matches, four losses and a no-result and are thus seated at the third spot in the points table. They still have a chance of making it to the eliminators provided they win their last two matches by comprehensive margins to avoid any NRR clash.
Meanwhile, Canterbury Kings have won two of their last four matches and would be coming into the contest on the back of a 7-wicket victory over Northern Knights. The Cole McConchie-captained side had earlier registered a 30-run triumph over Central Stags and would be hoping to put up a similar exhibition at Hagley Oval. As of present, they are seated at the 5th spot in the points tally with three wins in six matches and have four league matches on their schedule.
