Betting Tips
  • Mark Chapman top scored with 55 from 42 balls for Auckland Aces in their last game. He is a strong choice for their highest run scorer against Canterbury Kings. With the ball, Lockie Ferguson took 4-19 in the match against Otago Volts and he is our tip for Auckland Aces’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Opener Chad Bowes has hit 2 half-centuries in the tournament and is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer in this game. Ed Nuttall has 11 wickets from six games and is well worth backing as Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker against Auckland Aces.
  • We are predicting Lockie Ferguson to be in top form in this game and to take the Player of The Match Award.

AUK vs CAN Pitch Report

The previous Super Smash game at the venue saw Auckland Aces dismissed for 92. The pitch is better for batting than that score suggested and we expect a par score to be near 135.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AUK Team News

With only Kyle Jamieson missing on international duty, the Aces have an excellent opportunity to register another victory in this match. They have a key batting trio of Martin Guptill, Mark Chapman and Glenn Phillips who are all international standard. We are predicting an unchanged side for the Aces in this game.

AUK Key Players

  • Mark Chapman - No Auckland Aces player has scored more runs than Chapman who is averaging 30.80 do far in this competition.
  • Glenn Phillips - The big hitting batter hit 14 not out from 13 balls in his first appearance in the 2021-22 Super Smash on December 29th. He is a destructive white ball batter.
  • Lockie Ferguson - The attacking pace bowler has 8 wickets from five games with a strike-rate of 13.50 with the ball.

AUK Team Form

Canterbury Team News & Playing 11

CAN Team News

The Kings had a comfortable win over Central Stags on New Year’s Eve with Mitchell Hay the only batter not to contribute a double figure score. Cole McConchie’s side reached their target with 16 balls remaining and with no injuries in the camp, we expect to see the same XI in this game of Super Smash 2021-22.

CAN Key Players

  • Chad Bowes - The opener hit 28 from 13 balls including 5 boundaries in the win against Central Stags. He is the leading run scorer for the Kings in the tournament.
  • Cam Fletcher - The keeper-batter has been excellent behind the stumps throughout the competition and hit 48 not out to add to his earlier unbeaten half-century.
  • Ed Nuttall - The left-arm medium-fast bowler was wicketless and expensive against Central Stags but is the joint leading wicket taker in the tournament.

CAN Team Form

The Kings have lost only one of their last five games and have won their last two matches by comfortable margins.

Canterbury Predicted Playing 11

Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Leo Carter, Cole McConchie (c), Cam Fletcher (wk), Mitchell Hay, Henry Shipley, Todd Astle, Will Williams, Blake Coburn, Ed Nuttall
