CD vs NK Betting Tips

  • Dane Cleaver was one of the top bater’s in the 2021-22 season and has got off to a strong start again this year. He is well worth backing as Central Stags’ highest run scorer in this game. Spinner Jayden Lennox has taken a wicket in both matches and he is a strong choice for Central Stags’ top wicket taker against Northern Brave.
  • Tim Seifert hit 36 runs on Wednesday and the opener is our tip for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer against Central Stags. With the ball, Scott Kuggeleijn dismissed dangerman Hamish Rutherford in the last match and he is our pick for Northern Brave’s top wicket taker in this clash.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn caught the eye of the pundits in the last fixture and he is our recommendation to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

CS vs ND T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2022

Central Stags go head to head with Northern Brave in Match 8 of the 2022-23 Super Smash at Pukekura Park on Saturday afternoon. The Stags got their first win of the season on Friday when they beat Canterbury Kings by four wickets. Northern Brave have won one and lost one so far. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway at 13:40 local time in New Plymouth.

Central Stags will be full of confidence after winning a competitive fixture against Canterbury Kings. They certainly have the batting power to cause Northern Brave plenty of problems.

Northern Brave had an easy win over Otago Volts in their last game and, although Central Stags will be much tougher opposition, they should have enough quality to win this fixture.

Central Stags Team News & Playing 11

CS Team News

Although Central Stags lost their opening match to Wellington Firebirds, the team management kept faith with the same XI ahead of Friday’s home clash with Canterbury Kings. We expect to see the same team take the field for this game of Super Smash.

CS Key Players

  • Dane Cleaver- the 30 year old keeper-batter is in strong form and will be targeting his third successive score of 40+ in this match. He knows the conditions and is able to take advantage of the batter-friendly surface.
  • Josh Clarkson- 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.
  • Jayden Lennox- the slow left-arm spinner has taken wickets in each of his last four matches across all formats. He bowls a tight line and is always a wicket-taking threat.

CS Team Form

Central Stags narrowly lost their opening game of this campaign and have won two of their last three matches in the Super Smash.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

After restricting Otago Volts to 123-8 from their 20 overs and then knocking off the required runs with seven wickets and 29 balls remaining, Northern Brave are unlikely to make any changes ahead of this match. There are no injuries in the squad.

ND Key Players

  • Tim Seifert- the keeper-batter hit four fours and two sixes from his 24 ball innings against Otago Volts. He will be looking forward to batting on this pitch in this game.
  • Mitchell Santner- the bowling all-rounder continues to develop his batting abilities. He is yet to be dismissed with the bat in the tournament and hit 41 not out from 20 balls.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn- the right-arm fast medium bowler was very impressive in Queenstown against the Volts. He is usually expensive but produced two maidens and his wicket taking ability will be crucial in this match.

ND Team Form

Northern Brave were far too strong for Otago Volts in the last match and are a consistent winning machine in this format.

Northern Brave Predicted Playing 11

Katene Clarke, Tim Seifert (wk), Jeet Raval (c), Joe Carter, Mitchell Santner, Henry Cooper, Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kristian Clarke, Tim Pringle, Joe Walker

Who will win Central Stags vs Northern Brave T20 Match?

Both teams have excellent batters and we expect to see some big individual scores in this match. The bowling attacks on both sides will need to be very accurate in this game.

CS vs ND Top Team Batsmen

Ross Taylor, Dane Cleaver and Josh Clarkson are our tips with the bat for Central Stags. Taylor is favourite with the bookies but is yet to make a big contribution in this tournament. Cleaver is one of the most consistent Super Smash batters over recent seasons.

Our recommendations are Katene Clarke, Tim Seifert and Jeet Raval with the bat for Northern Brave. Clarke has had an excellent start to the campaign and he has the top odds with the bat for his team. Raval has scored five half-centuries in this format.

CS vs ND Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Jayden Lennox, Brett Randell and Raymond Toole with the ball for Central Stags. Lennox has been a regular wicket taker over recent games and it is no surprise to see the bookies awarding him the top odds. Randell has format best figures of 3-29.

Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Pringle and Joe Walker are our bowling picks for Northern Brave. Kuggeleijn has experience playing in the top T20 leagues across the globe and is the favourite with the bookmakers to pick up wickets in this match. Off-spinner Walker has top T20 bowling figures of 4-31.
