CNTBRY vs WEL Betting Tips

  • Leo Carter made 88 runs from 63 balls on Friday and the number three batter is a strong choice for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer against Wellington Firebirds. Henry Hunter continued his strong run of form in this competition with his third successive two-wicket haul against Central Stags. Hunter is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • Nick Kelly hit 58 runs from 25 balls on Tuesday and the opening batter is our tip for Wellington Firebirds’ highest run scorer against Canterbury Kings. Adam Milne has taken 2-24 and 1-37 in this tournament and he is well worth backing for Wellington Firebirds’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We recommend backing Adam Milne to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash. He took 3-57 at this venue against India in an ODI at the end of November.

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

Match 9 of the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Canterbury Kings take on Wellington Firebirds on Sunday afternoon at Hagley Oval, Christchurch. The Kings have won one and lost two games so far with the Firebirds top of the league after two victories. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway at 13:40 local time on New Year’s Day in Christchurch.

Canterbury Kings need their bowlers to be more accurate in this game after seeing them lose from strong winning positions in the two matches so far. They have talent in the squad but there is perhaps a lack of self-belief

Wellington Firebirds have not brushed aside the opposition in either game so far but have got themselves into a winning habit and will fancy their chances of victory in this match.

Canterbury Kings Team News & Playing 11

CTB Team News

With only one win from their last four Super Smash fixtures, there will be calls for Canterbury Kings to make some big changes ahead of this match. They will need their bowlers to go up a level or two to compete in this match against Canterbury Kings.

CTB Key Players

  • Chad Bowes- the 29 year old opener took two chances in the field against Central and also hit 24 runs from only 11 balls.
  • Cam Fletcher- the middle-order batter has begun this season in brilliant and aggressive batting form. He hit 55 in Match 4 and 46 not-out on Friday, both with strike-rates of over 200.
  • Henry Shipley- the 26 year old right arm medium fast bowler has returned figures of 2-5, 2-24 and 2-30 in the competition. He will fancy his chances of adding to his tally in this game.

CTB Team Form

Canterbury Kings are looking to avoid their third defeat in three games. Although they won their opener against Northern Brave, they have lost their last two.

Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WF Team News

After two narrow wins, there could be an argument in favour of making a couple of changes in the Wellington Firebirds XI but we expect the team management to keep faith with the same team. There are plenty of match-winners throughout Wellington’s team.

WF Key Players

  • Nick Kelly- the left-handed opener struck a very impressive eight fours and three sixes in his 25-ball stay at the crease against Central Stags. .
  • Finn Allen- the right-handed keeper-batter has got his team off to a good start in both games with scores of 21 and 33. He took a catch against Central Stags and his wicket-keeping is improving year on year.
  • Adam Milne- the right-arm quick bowler picked up the wicket of experienced opener Greg Hay in the last game. Milne is very accurate and will be tough to face on this surface.

WF Team Form

Wellington Firebirds are targeting their third straight victory in this game. Their last defeat came in the 2021-22 Eliminator against Canterbury Kings.

🏆 Canterbury Kings vs Wellington Firebirds Prediction

The win for Canterbury Kings over Central Stags on Friday has given this game a bit more edge and the Kings will be determined to not make anything easy for Wellington Firebirds.

We are predicting a close game at times but eventually an easy win for Wellington Firebirds.
