CTB vs NK Dream11 Prediction: Defending champions Northern Knights have had a rollercoaster ride so far in Super Smash 2019-20 and with hardly three matches remaining in their league fixtures, the Dean Brownlie-captained side would be hoping to revamp their strategies before they take on the Canterbury Kings in their first face-off of the season.
Seated at the 5th spot with two wins, four losses, and a no-result, it is high time the Northern Knights come up with winning combination instead of relying overly on the trio of Tim Seifert, Daryl Mitchell and Brett Randell for giving the required results. Not to forget, they lost the recent outing against Wellington Firebirds by a margin of 52-runs, something they should look to avoid in the coming T20.
Meanwhile, Canterbury Kings in spite of being placed at the bottom still have a chance of making it to the knockouts provided they win their remaining five league matches. As of present, they have mustered merely a sole win in five matches, including three losses and a no-result and would look to go full-throttle from the coming game onwards.
In the previous edition of Super Smash, the Knights had defeated the Kings on both the occasions in the league stages, making them favorites for the forthcoming feud.
