There is no option in splunk's cron to specify timezone, so it'll run at the same timezone as the search heads.

If the system you are using is running in CST, the cron schedule would be 30 9 * * *

If the system running the report is not in CST, then you need to adjust the values for minutes and hours based on the timezone difference between CST and the timezone of the system.
