The Canterbury Wizards have named an unchanged 12 for the Plunket Shield match against Central Districts which begins tomorrow in Rangiora.

The unavailability of several players means coach Gary Stead has stuck with the same side that lost its seventh round clash to Northern Districts last week at Hagley Oval.

Brad Cachopa will miss the match but is expected to play club cricket this weekend as he returns from a shoulder injury.

Rob Nicol is unavailable for personal reasons. Nicol is expected to return for the side's opening round of one-day competition on February 26 at Hagley.

Matt Henry is also expected back from injury for the one-day competition, but it is understood the 21-year-old seamer hopes to play the final match of Canterbury's Plunket Shield campaign next week at Hagley against Auckland.

The Wizards' six-wicket loss to ND on a bowler-friendly Hagley pitch cost them any chance of winning the Plunket Shield.

HOW THEY LINE UP

Canterbury: Peter Fulton (c), Todd Astle, Dean Brownlie, Brent Findlay, Tim Johnston, Tom Latham, Ryan McCone, Ben McCord, Matt McEwan, Henry Nicholls, Shanan Stewart, George Worker. -
