NK vs CD Betting Tips

  • Katene Clarke has scored 20 fours and three sixes in the competition and he is our pick for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer in this match. Neil Wagner is a high class bowler and took three wickets with one maiden included from his four overs in the last game. He is well worth backing as Northern Brave’s top wicket taker against Central Stags.
  • Will Young has played only four matches in the tournament but has impressed with two scores over 50. He is our tip for Central Stags’ highest run scorer against Northern Brave. With the ball, Jayden Lennox has 15 wickets and the spinner is a strong choice for Central Stags’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • As a very consistent batter across all formats, we recommend backing Will Young to score over 29.5 runs in this clash.

ND vs CS T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2023

Match 27 of the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Northern Brave take on Central Stags at Seddon Park, Hamilton. The teams both have 18 points on the board from their nine games so far. Central Stags are in third place with Northern Brave in fourth position. Read on as we preview this evening fixture. This match gets underway in Hamilton at 18:40 local time.

Although they have had their last two matches abandoned, Northern Brave are only two points of the top two sides and will fancy their chances in front of their home supporters in this game.

Central Stags were leading the tournament but have lost their ability to win games in recent weeks. It will be tough to turn their form around against a strong Northern Brave side.

ND vs CS, Seddon Park Pitch Report

There has been plenty of wet weather around Hamilton over the last week and the moisture in the wicket should help the seam bowlers on both sides.

Hamilton Weather Report

Thunderstorms with very humid conditions are forecast for the region on Friday evening. It would be a surprise if there was not at least one interruption to the game.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

Zak Gibson and Tim Pringle were both left out of the last completed game for Northern Brave after they were expensive in the previous fixture. The bowling attack was far stronger in the last game and we expect the same players to be selected for this game.

ND Key Players

  • Katene Clarke - The opener has hit 150 runs in the Super Smash 2022-23 including an aggressive 41 runs from 24 balls in the last game against Central Stags.

  • Neil Wagner - The left arm pace bowler has appeared in only three Super Smash games in this campaign but impressed with 3-26 against Auckland Aces. He will get plenty of assistance from this pitch. 

ND Team Form

Northern Brave have won only one of their last five matches in the 2022-23 Super Smash.

Central Stags Team News & Playing 11

CS Team News

The Stags were unchanged for their last match, a four wicket defeat with three balls remaining, against Otago Volts. As the game represented an improvement on previous performances and as there are no reported injuries, we expect to see an unchanged XI in this game.

  • Will Young - The New Zealander all-format international has hit a half-century in half of his innings in the 2022-23 Super Smash. 
  • Jayden Lennox - No player has taken more wickets in the competition than the 28 year old slow left-arm spinner. He has nine wickets from his last four games.

CS Team Form

The Stags come into this game struggling for form and are looking to avoid their fourth successive defeat.

🏆 Northern Brave vs Central Stags Prediction

This should be a very interesting game with a win for either team seeing them go level on points with Canterbury Kings and Otago Volt at the top of the table. Central Stags have some very talented players and we expect them to run Northern Brave very close. However, the Stags are in poor form and we are backing Northern Brave to do enough to get over the winning line.
