Betting Tips
  • Cole McConchie hit 298 runs in last season’s competition and he is a strong choice for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, left-arm pace bowler Ed Nuttall picked up 11 wickets during the 2020-21 Super Smash and he is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker against Wellington Firebirds.
  • Finn Allen finished as the tournament’s highest run scorer last season and we are backing the opener to be Wellington Firebirds’ highest runs scorer against Canterbury Kings. Logan van Beek took 13 wickets from eleven games in the 2020-21 campaign and is a solid tip for Wellington Firebirds’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • With some of the top international players not available, we are backing Ed Nuttall to be the standout player and to take the Player of The Match Award.

Canterbury vs Wellington Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2021

Canterbury Kings and Wellington Firebirds get the Men’s Super Smash tournament underway on Friday. This is a repeat of last season’s final which Wellington Firebirds won by 5 wickets courtesy of a 63-ball unbeaten 93 from Devon Conway. Read on as we preview this opening fixture. The match begins at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch at 18:40 local time.

Canterbury Kings were a very strong side in last season’s competition and fully deserved to reach the final. They will have reason for revenge against the reigning champions.

Wellington Firebirds were runaway table toppers in the group stage in the 2020-21 season and lost only one game during the whole campaign. However, Devon Conway’s 455 runs will be a big miss.

CAN vs WEL Prediction

Canterbury Team News & Playing 11

CAN Team News

With Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls and Tom Latham all away on international duty, Canterbury Kings will not be able to field their first choice XI. However, this is not an unusual occurrence for them and they have plenty of willing understudies to step in. There are no injury concerns in the squad ahead of this game.

CAN Key Players

  • Cole McConchie - The captain hit 2 half-centuries during last season’s tournament and hit 44 in the final in a losing cause.
  • Matt Henry - The pace bowler has not played international cricket since June of this year and captured 14 wickets during the run to the final last season.
  • Ed Nutall - The left-arm fast medium bowler has been in solid form with the ball during Plunket Shield games and has taken a wicket in each of his last 10 innings.

CAN Team Form

Although the Kings reached the final last season, they also lost three of their final five matches. They will need to be on the mark immediately in this competition.

Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WEL Team News

Similar to their opponents, Wellington Firebirds are missing key players in the shape of the injured Devon Conway and first choice keeper Tom Blundell for the first match of Super Smash 2021

WEL Key Players

  • Finn Allen - The young opening batter has enjoyed testing himself in some of the biggest franchise tournaments across the globe this year.
  • Hamish Bennett - The right arm fast-medium bowler took 11 wickets last season and arrives fresh after not playing in the T20 World Cup. 
  • Logan van Beek - The Dutch pace bowler struggled in the T20 World Cup in the UAE but should find the conditions far more conducive for him in New Zealand.

WEL Team Form

The Firebirds were unstoppable last season and won their final five games to secure the trophy. However they will be wary that their last defeat was to Canterbury Kings.

Finn Allen, Andrew Fletcher, Callum McLachlan (wk), Troy Johnson, Michael Bracewell (c), Hamish Gibson, Hamish Bennett, Peter Younghusband, Logan van Beek, Ben Sears, Nathan Smith
