AKL vs CNTBRY Betting Tips

  • George Worker showed good intent at the top of the order in the last fixture and he is a strong choice for Auckland Aces’ highest run scorer against Canterbury Kings. With the ball, Sean Solia has six wickets from his 15 overs in the competition and he is our tip for Auckland Aces’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • With the highest score, 88 not out, for Canterbury Kings so far in the campaign, we are backing Leo Carter to be their highest run scorer against Auckland Aces. Henry Shipley has six wickets so far in the tournament and he is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Sean Solia has been a consistent wicket taker across the early games of the tournament and he is our recommendation to take over 1.5 wicekts in this clash.

AA vs CTB T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2023

Sunday afternoon’s game in the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Auckland Aces take on Canterbury Kings at the Kennards Hire Community Oval. The Aces won their opening game of this campaign but have since lost two and tied one. The Kings also won their opener but have been beaten in all three of their next fixtures. Read on as we preview this game. Match 15 gets underway at 14:40 local time.

Auckland Aces do not have the same pace and aggression in their bowling attack without Lockie Ferguson and this has put more pressure on their batters to make more runs. This will be a very close game in Auckland.

After close defeats by four wickets in successive games, the Kings were well beaten by Wellington Firebirds in their last match. They are low on confidence and face a tough trip to Auckland in this fixture.

AA vs CTB Match Toss Prediction

Auckland won the toss and chose to field first in Match 10 on this ground. However, with rain forecast for the second innings, we predict that both skippers will want to bat first in this game.

AA vs CTB, Eden Park Outer Oval Pitch Report

Both teams scored 174-8 in the last game at this venue and we expect any score between 170-180 to be about par. There is certainly pace in this wicket for the quick bowlers to exploit.

Auckland Weather Report

We expect the game to begin under partly cloudy skies with some sunshine. However, rain is forecast for the second half of this match.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AA Team News

Danru Ferns and Matt Gibson came into the Auckland Aces line-up for Lockie Ferguson and Benjamin Lister ahead of the four wicket defeat against Central Stags. Ferguson is now in Pakistan ahead of the ODI series and Lister is not expected to have recovered in time from his injury to play in this match.

AA Key Players

  • George Worker- the 33 year old left-handed opener made a slow start to the tournament but hit two fours and two sixes in the last game and we expect more attacking play from him in this clash.
  • Cole Briggs- the right-handed opener has improved on his previous score in each of his three appearances so far in the competition. He will be looking to build on his 45 against Central Stags in this match.
  • Sean Solia- the all-rounder has a strike-rate of 15.0 in the Super Smash 2022-23. He should enjoy some of the pace and bounce on offer from this surface.

AA Team Form

With a narrow defeat after a tied game. Auckland Aces are not too far away from a winning formula. However, it is now three games without a victory.

Canterbury Kings Team News & Playing 11

CTB Team News

After their four wicket defeat to Central Stags on December 30th, the Kings were unchanged for their last match against Wellington Firebirds. Although they lost again, there are not many viable options waiting in reserve so we expect to see the same XI.

CTB Key Players

  • Leo Carter- the leading run scorer for the Kings so far in this season, Carter is one of only three players to have faced 100+ balls in the tournament. He is not the type to throw his wicket away with a wild shot in this game.
  • Cole McConchie- the skipper has made successive scores of 33 and 35 but is yet to take a wicket in the competition. If he can turn a 30 into a 50 then he may be able to turn his side’s form around.
  • Henry Shipley- after picking up two wickets in each of the first three games of the 2022-23 Super Smash, Shipley went wicketless in the last match. He will open the bowling and lead the attack in this fixture.

CTB Team Form

The Kings are hoping to avoid their fourth successive defeat in this year’s Super Smash in this game.

Chad Bowes, Matthew Boyle, Leo Carter, Cole McConchie (c), Cam Fletcher, Mitchell Hay, Henry Shipley, Todd Astle, Blake Coburn, William O’Rourke, Ed Nuttall

Auckland Aces vs Canterbury Kings Head to Head

Auckland Aces are looking for their 22nd win over Canterbury Kings in this match after beating them by four wickets earlier in the competition. That win for the Aces ended a run of four successive wins for the Kings in this fixture.

🏆 Auckland Aces vs Canterbury Kings Prediction

Although Auckland Aces won the contest between the sides by four wickets with only three balls remaining earlier in the campaign, their chief wicket-taker, Benjamin Lister who took 3-31, is expected to be absent for this match. With Lockie Ferguson also out of their team, the bowling attack looks a lot less strong. However, Canterbury Kings were very disappointing in their last game and their batting looks particularly short on confidence. We expect to see a close match with Auckland Aces getting the win.
