Canterbury vs Auckland, Super Smash 2020-21

Canterbury will take on Auckland in the 14th match of the Super Smash 2020-21. The game will be played on Hagley Oval and is scheduled to begin at 7:10 PM local time.

Canterbury won’t be too happy with their performance in the last match. The bowling was wayward, the batting looked rusty and they looked like a team that hasn't played much cricket of late.
They’ll be playing back to back games so we expect them to perform better against Auckland. 

Daryl Mitchell started his Super Smash 2020-21 with a solid knock of 71 which is good. Cole McConchie also batted well. Their top two player Chad Bowes and Ken McClure failed but they’re expected to be back among the runs in the next match. 

Mat Henry, Ed Nuttal were the two standout performers with the ball. Other bowlers like Will Williams, Todd Astle, Daryl Mitchell need to deliver a better performance.

For Auckland, they’ve lost all their matches and need a win to give themselves an outside chance.

Auckland bating look good on paper with players like Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Robert O Donnell, Ben Horne, Sen Solia, William ODonnel. All of these batsmen have done well individually but the collectively they’ve failed as a batting unit. Their batting, however, will be boosted by the return of Martin Guptill.

The bowling looks a cause of concern as they’ve been very extensive. Ben Lister and William Somerville have been their best bowlers. Other bowlers like Ross ter Braak, Louis Delport and Danru Ferns need to bring their A game.

Overall, Canterbury looks a much more balanced unit and having played a game on this wicket will work in their favour.
