Division 4 i beleive is the most closley contested division in WCC, after 9 rounds there are still 3 teams with a very good chance of taking out the title. Colts, WP and Canterbury.
The Standings with 1 round to go:
Colts - 104
WP - 95
Canterbury - 95
Somerset - 67
Victoria - 61
Auckland - 35
The title race made even more interesting with WP and Colts playing at WP in the final round. Last time these sides met the colts started well scoring 527 in our first innings, WP replied with 425. After this however the game was turned on its head with a brilliant spell of bowling from Nelson taking 6/14 and Lee cleaning up the tail with 4/19, colts 40 all out. WP went on to take the game by 9 wickets. The result of this game is too hard to pick.
Canterbury, after a brilliant start to the season has fallen away. the drop in form including losses to the Colts, WP and Somerset ( i think).
Canterbury play Victoria at home this week and i would say favourites to win. the are 9 points behind the colts. if the win, they will almost certainly get promoted or play a play-off. if they lose however, they must rely on WP also losing to get a place in the play off.
so whos gonna win, and who will not evern attain a playoff spot?
