CNTBRY vs AKL Betting Tips

  • Opener Chad Bowes hit 57 not out from 39 balls against Northern Brave and he is well worth backing as Canterbury Kins’ highest run scorer in this match.

  • Martin Guptill has hit four centuries in T20 cricket and is vastly experienced in this format. He is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer in this fixture. Lockie Ferguson has the pace to cause all batters problems and he is a strong choice for Canterbury’s top wicket taker.
  • We recommend backing Martin Guptill to hit at least one six in this game.

CTB vs AA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2022

Canterbury Kings take on Auckland Aces in Match 3 of the 2022-23 Super Smash on Monday evening at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch. The Kings had a big nine wicket win over last season’s winners, Northern Brave, in the first game of the season. Auckland Aces picked up 16 points from four wins in the 2021-22 competition but missed out on the play-offs by four points. Read on as we preview this game. The fixture begins at 17:30 local time.

Canterbury Kings were one game away from lifting the trophy in the 2021-22 Super Smash but have got off to an excellent start this year. They have players performing with both bat and ball already in this campaign.

Auckland Aces have made a few changes from last season's competition but certainly have players with historical vouchers. They will fancy their chances of getting a win over the Kings.

CTB vs AA Match Toss Prediction

There was an even split last season between captains choosing to bat first or bowl first on this pitch. With the humidity levels increasing, we predict that both skippers will choose to field first.

CTB vs AA, Hagley Oval Pitch Report

This surface will offer turn for the spin bowlers but will also have good pace in the wicket which should assist the pace bowlers as well as the batters. We expect a par score to be over 150.

Christchurch Weather Report

Partly cloudy with humidity levels getting as high as 75% in the second innings of this match. The temperature will be between 21 and 19 degrees in Christchurch throughout this game.

Canterbury Kings Team News & Playing 11

CTB Team News

The Kings could not have asked for a better start to the season than beating the team who defeated them in last year’s final. There are no injury worries for the side after Match 1 with the same squad announced for this fixture and we expect the same team to be selected

CTB Key Players

  • Chad Bowes- the opener was in fine form in the Super Smash 2022-23 opening game victory. He hit five fours and two sixes in his 39 balls unbeaten innings. He will be a batter who the Aces will be wary of bowling at in this match.
  • Henry Shipley- the 26 year old right-arm medium fast bowler is already straight back up to the form from the 2021-22 season. He dismissed Tim Seifert and Jeet Raval in his first two overs.
  • Ed Nuttall- the left arm angle always causes problems, predominantly for right-handed batters, and particularly when delivered with pace. Nutall began this tournament with 2-34 on Friday.

CTB Team Form

The Kings have won three of their last four Super Smash games with their only defeat coming against Northern Brave in last year’s final.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AA Team News

Rarely predictable and often inconsistent, Auckland Aces will be looking to take advantage of Lockie Ferguson’s early season availability before he joins the ODI squad in Pakistan. Glenn Phillips has moved to Otago Volts and that will give the opportunity for younger players to star.

AA Key Players

  • Martin Guptill- the vastly experienced opener lost his place in New Zealand’s T20I team earlier this year but he still has the ability to win a game on his own.
  • Mark Chapman- the small left-handed batter has typically been used as a player to keep the scoreboard ticking over by New Zealand but he has a more attacking record in this format.
  • Lockie Ferguson- the 31 year old right arm fast bowler is an excellent player at all levels and his pace is a real point of difference for this Auckland Aces XI.

AA Team Form

The Aces are hoping to avoid their fourth straight Super Smash defeat. A loss will also make it five defeats from their last six matches.

Who will win Canterbury Kings vs Auckland Aces T20 Match?

Auckland Aces will be very reliant on Martin Guptill and Martin Chapman in this clash whereas the Kings have more players who are able to provide match winning performances. It will certainly be a close contest in Christchurch.

CTB vs AA Top Team Batsmen

Chad Bowes, Matthew Boyle and Leo Cartee our tips for the top batters for Canterbury Kings. After his unbeaten half-century in the opening game, it is no surprise to see Bowes with the top odds ahead of this match. Carter hit 27 not out against Northern Brave.

Martin Guptill, George Worker and Mak Chapman are our batting recommendations for Auckland Aces. Guptill has long been New Zealand’s opener in white ball cricket and it’s no surprise to see him with the top odds with the bookies. Chapman has 15 scores of above 50 in T20 cricket.

CTB vs AA Top Team Bowlers

For Canterbury Kings, we are backing Henry Shipley, Ed Nutall and Todd Astle with the ball. Shipley and Nutall were both in the top five players for dismissals last year and got off to excellent starts this time. They have the best odds shared between them. Astle took 0-15 against Northern Brave but should get more turn and bounce in this game.

We are backing Lockie Feguson, Danru Ferns and Adithya Ashok with the ball for Auckland Aces. Ferguson is the clear favourite with the ball for Auckland and impressed in the T20 World Cup. Spinner Ashok has a strike-rate of 15.8 in this format.

🏆 Canterbury Kings vs Auckland Aces Prediction

Pundits as well as the bookies are already keeping a close eye on this game and are expecting plenty of entertainment. Lockie Ferguson is a top bowler but if the Kings can see him off then that will be half the battle to win this match. Canterbury Kings have plenty of T20 experience with the bat and we are backing them to do enough to win the game in this clash.
