Plunket Shield Championship - Central Stags V Canterbury

Latham St, Napier

How good is free admission to witness our defending national champions, the Central Stags, go toe to toe with last year's runners-up, Canterbury, in the cauldron of national first-class cricket! People pay big bucks to watch this in England, but we're all about showcasing the training ground for our current and future Test BLACKCAPS so head along to the park to see the stars in a national championship that dates back 117 years. BYO lunch and coffee, as this is a no-frills event and you can take your pick of great viewing from anywhere in the Harris Stand or on the grass bank. Live scoreboard to keep you up with the play and follow @centralstags on instagram for the behind the scenes content and updates. Toss on day one is 10am, with gates opening shortly beforehand and livescores at so you can check the state of play anytime before you pop in to see the good stuff in person. This is an extra special match with captain Greg Hay set to become just the second Central Stag in 73 years to play 100 first-class matches for the team! That's all the motivation the boys need for a brilliant game against one of their biggest rivals. Follow along with hashtags #lovethestags #plunketshield
