AKL vs WEL Betting Tips

  • New Zealand international Mark Chapman hit a half-century the last time these sides met. He is our pick for Auckland Aces’ highest run scorer against Wellington Firebirds. With the ball, Adithya Ashok took 3-33 against Canterbury Kings on Tuesday. He is a strong choice for Auckland Aces’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Opener Finn Allen has hit 2 half-centuries across all white ball formats so far this month and is our tip for Wellington Firebirds’ highest run scorer in this game. Rachin Ravindra took 2-16 against Northern Brave on Sunday and is well worth backing as Wellington Firedirds’ top wicket taker against Auckland Aces.
  • Adithya Ashok has picked up 5 wickets across his last two Super Smash fixtures. He is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AUK Team News

Top order batting runs have been an issue for Auckland Aces over recent games but we think there is enough quality in the players for this to be just a blip in form. Lower order runs have come from Robert O’Donnell and Lockie Ferguson, it may be that both get promoted up the order. There are no injuries in the Auckland Aces squad.

AUK Key Players

  • Mark Chapman - The 27 year old batting all-rounder hit 105 on New Year’s Day against Wellington Firebirds in the Ford Trophy.
  • Robert O’Donnell - The Auckland Aces captain produced a much needed 56 from 37 balls on Tuesday. He hit 8 fours in the innings.
  • Adithya Ashok - The all-rounder picked up valuable wickets against Canterbury Kings. He dismissed Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie.

AUK Team Form

With two defeats in their last three games, the Aces need to get a win to get back on track.

Auckland Aces Predicted Playing 11

George Worker, Sean Solia, Mark Chapman, Glenn Phillips, Robert O’Donnell (c), Ben Horne (wk), William Somerville, Lockie Ferguson, Ross ter Braak, Adithya Ashok, Ben Lister.

Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WEL Team News

The Firebirds had a bad day at the office at the Cobham Oval, Whangarei against Northern Brave on Sunday with Jimmy Neesham and Rachin Ravindra the only players to put in good performances. Devon Conway is expected to return for his first domestic game of the season.

WEL Key Players

  • Finn Allen - The young keeper-batter has been very efficient behind the stumps. He is yet to hit the heights of last season with the bat but has still contributed useful runs.
  • Jimmy Neesham - The batting all-rounder has been delivering with both bat and ball in the Super Smash 2021-22 so far. He has 2 international centuries to his name.
  • Logan van Beek - The medium fast bowler has gone off the boil in the last few games but will be looking to return to the form we saw at the start of the tournament when he took wickets in four successive matches.

WEL Team Form

Wellington Firebirds put in a timid display against Northern Brave but had been in strong form over recent weeks.

Wellington Firebirds Predicted Playing 11

Finn Allen (wk), Devon Conway, Michael Bracewell (c), Troy Johnson, Rachin Ravindra, Jimmy Neesham, Nathan Smith, Logan van Beek, Peter Younghusband, Ben Sears, Hamish Bennett.
