NK vs CNTBRY Betting Tips

  • Tim Seifert has played 40 T20Is and has played for Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals and Trinbago Knight Riders. He is a clean hitter of a ball and is our tip for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Anurag Verma impressed in the tournament last year and the medium pacer is a strong choice for Northern Brave’s top wicket taker against Canterbury Kings.
  • Our highest run scorer selection for Canterbury Kings is Chad Bowes. He has hit 16 half-centuries in T20s with four of them coming in the 2021-22 Super Smash. Henry Shipley was the tournament’s top wicket taker last year and we are backing him to be Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We suggest backing Tim Seifert to begin the tournament with a score of over 35.5.

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

The 2022-23 Super Smash competition gets underway on Friday evening at the Bay Oval with Northern Brave taking on Canterbury Kings. The game is a re-match from last year’s final which Northern Brave won easily to register their third title. Kings have not won the title since lifting the trophy in 2005-6, the first year of the competition. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in Mount Maunganui at 18:40 local time.

Northern Brave will be without some of their big name players for this game but that never stopped them from consistently winning matches last year. They will be very confident of getting off to a winning start.

Canterbury Kings have waited for nearly a year to get an opportunity to make amends for the defeat in the 2021-22 Super Smash Final. However, Northern Brave remain a very tough team to take on in this format.

ND vs CTB Match Toss Prediction

Each game at the Bay Oval during the 2021-22 season saw the toss winning captain choose to field first and with favourable bowling conditions in the first half of this match we expect the skippers to want to bat second again.

ND vs CTB Pitch Report

There will be something to help the quick bowlers in this pitch with the ball likely to move for the seam bowlers. A par score will be no higher than 150.

Weather Report

We expect thick cloud in the opening part of this game with clear skies overhead and temperatures of 21 degrees during the second innings in Mount Maunganui.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

The 2021-22 Champions will have a few changes to their XI who won the final so easily against Canterbury Kings back in late January. Tim Southee and Ish Sodhi are in Pakistan ahead of the Test series with Colin de Grandhomme playing in the BBL for Adelaide Strikers. Kane Williamson is also preparing for the start of the Tests in Pakistan.

ND Key Players

  • Tim Seifert - The keeper-batter hit 289 runs across the tournament last year and has plenty of experience around the world in other T20 tournaments that he can bring to this Northern Brave side.
  • Joe Walker - The off-spinner was Northern Brave’s top wicket taker last season and by bowling a very tight line, he always has a chance of dismissals either bowled or lbw. He will be a threat in this match.
  • Anurag Verma - The medium pacer impressed in the 2021-22 Super Smash with 14 wickets at a strike-rate of 12.7. He should be able to move the ball off pitch in this game.

ND Team Form

Northern Brave won nine successive games on their way to winning the 2021-22 Super Smash.

Canterbury Kings Team News & Playing 11

CTB Team News

Three of Canterbury Kings players who played in the final defeat in January will be preparing for the First Test in Karachi. Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell and Matt Henry are all top players and we expect them to be replaced by Matthew Boyle, Zakary Foulkes 

CTB Key Players

  • Chad Bowes - The top order batter hit four half-centuries across last year’s tournament with no player hitting as many as his 41 fours. He will look to attack from the first ball at the Bay Oval.
  • Cam Fletcher - The keeper-batter averaged 43.75 in the 2021-22 Super Smash with his runs coming at a very exciting strike-rate of 160.52. He hit the most sixes in the competition and will  look to clear the boundary in this game.
  • Henry Shipley - The 26 year old medium fast bowler has a good record across all formats but is particularly successful in T20s where he averages 23.86 per wicket.

CTB Team Form

By losing last year’s final Canterbury Kings ended the season with two wins and two defeats from their last four matches.

Who will win Northern Brave vs Canterbury Kings T20 Match?

Northern Brave were able to develop a winning mentality which meant that they could win from desperate positions last year. At this stage of the new season, we expect that same attitude to be powerful in this game against the 2021-22 beaten finalists.

NB vs CTB Top Team Batsmen

Tim Seifert, Katene Clarke and Mitchell Santner are our batting recommendations for Northern Brave. Seifert has 21 scores of 50+ in T20s and he has the top odds with the bookies. Santner has developed his batting to a high standard over recent seasons and hit 92 not out in the final last year.

For Canterbury Kings, Chad Bowes, Cam Fletcher and Leo Carter are our batting tips. After topping the run scorers list for the Kings last year, Bowes is favourite with the bookmakers to top score in this match. The left-handed Carter plays the anchor role in the team and will keep the scoreboard moving without risks if early wickets fall.

NB vs CTB Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Anurag Verma, Joe Walker and Scott Kuggeleijn with the ball for Northern Brave. Verma and Walker were both regular wicket takers last year and the bookies expect them to begin the campaign with dismissals. Kuggeleijn has 138 wickets in T20s and has played in the IPL and CPL as well as the Super Smash.

Ed Nuttall, Henry Shipley and Theo van Woerkom are our bowling selections for Canterbury Kings. Nuttall and Shipley both have the top odds with the bookmakers and took 33 wickets between them last year. van Woerkom is a slow left-arm bowler who has not been used in this format before but is a regular wicket taker in longer formats.

🏆 Northern Brave vs Canterbury Kings Prediction

It is a great fixture to begin the new season with a repeat of the 2021-22 finalists going head to head. Canterbury Kings certainly have the stronger bowling attack but Northern Brave have some powerful hitters and always find a way of getting over the winning line. We are predicting a close contest with Northern Brave getting a victory to begin this campaign.
