WEL vs NK Betting Tips

  • Finn Allen hit 78 runs from only 37 balls on New Year’s Day and the right-handed opener is well worth backing as Wellington Firebirds’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, captain Peter Younghusband took 2-21 in the last game and the spinner is a strong choice for Wellington Firebirds’ top wicket taker.
  • Captain Jeet Raval hit 60 runs from 29 balls in the defeat to Central Stags and the number three batter is our pick for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer against Wellington Firebirds. Kristian Clarke has taken two wickets in each of the last two matches and the medium pacer is our tip for Northern Brave’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • Both teams have strong opening batting pairs but we recommend backing Wellington Firebirds to make the highest score for the first wicket.

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

Match 11 of the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Wellington Firebirds take on Northern Brave on Wednesday afternoon at the Cello Basin Reserve. The Firebirds have a 100% record from their opening three games and sit top of the table. Northern Brave have four points from three fixtures. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 14:40 local time.

Wellington Firebirds have been very impressive throughout the 2022-23 Super Smash so far and it would be a big surprise if they were unable to maintain their winning streak against Northern Brave.

Northern Brave have an exciting top three in their batting line-up who have the quality to always keep the team competitive. However, it is going to be very tough for the whole team to keep up with Wellington Firebirds.

WF vs ND Match Toss Prediction

Wellington Firebirds were asked to bat first before beating Otago Volts in the last game at the Cello Basin Reserve. We predict that both teams will want to bat first in this match.

WF vs ND Pitch Report

There is some pace in the wicket for the batters but also movement and turn for the bowlers. Any score over 150 will be very hard to chase down.

Weather Report

Very cloudy with a slight chance of rain in the early part of the game. The temperature will be no higher than 22 degrees throughout the match.

Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WF Team News

New Zealand international pace bowler Adam Milne missed the last game with a hamstring injury and we expect him to still be out for this game. In his place came Ian McPeake who was a little expensive but should be selected again for this match.

WF Key Players

  • Finn Allen - The New Zealand white ball international opener has made scores of 21, 33 and 78 so far in the competition. He is a crucial wicket at the top of the order.
  • Nick Kelly - The 29 year old left-handed batter made a half century in the win over Central Stags and shared an opening partnership of 58 from 4.3 overs with Finn Allen in the last match.
  • Peter Younghusband - The skipper has produced excellent figures in each game so far and we expect more of the same in this fixture. He bowled the only maiden of the Canterbury Kings v Wellington Firebirds game.

WF Team Form

The Firebirds have won all three of their games in this year’s tournament. After narrow wins in their first two matches, they won their third match by a very comfortable margin.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

Zak Gibson and Freddy Walker are expected to come into the Northern Brave XI in place of Joe Carter who is out through illness and Mitchell Santner who has travelled to Pakistan in advance of the ODI series. There are no injuries in the Northern Brave squad.

ND Key Players

  • Jeet Raval - The 34 year old captain hit 81 in a Ford Trophy fixture against Wellington back in mid-December. He is in excellent form in white ball cricket.
  • Tim Seifert - The experienced keeper-batter hit 59 runs from 30 balls against Central Stags and will be looking to add to the 11 boundaries he hit in that match against Wellington Firebirds in this game.
  • Kristian Clarke - The young medium pacer got the big wicket of opener Greg Clay on New Year’s Eve. He has shown an ability to pick up wickets throughout the innings so far in the Super Smash 2022-23.

ND Team Form

It has been an inconsistent start to the campaign from Northern Brave who have won only one of their opening three matches.

Who will win Wellington Firebirds vs Northern Brave T20 Match?

The top three batters for Wellington Firebirds have all produced a good score over the first three games and it will be very hard for Northern Brave to keep them all quiet in this match.

WF vs ND Top Team Batsmen

Finn Allen, Nick Kelly and Rachin Ravindra are our batting recommendations for Wellington Firebirds. Finn has the top odds with the bookies and was in brilliant form in the win over Canterbury Firebirds. Ravindra hit 67 in the Christmas Eve victory over Otago Volts.

Our batting tips are Tim Seifert, Katene Clarke and Jeet Raval for Northern Brave. Seifert has experience across top competitions like the IPL and the bookies expect him to deliver in this match. Clarke is an aggressive presence at the top of the order for Northern Brave and he will be attacking from the first ball.

WF vs ND Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Logan van Beek, Ian McPeake and Peter Younghusband with the ball for Wellington Firebirds. van Beek is favourite with the bookies to be the top wicket taker and took 2-31 in the last game at the Cello Basin Reserve. Younghusband’s best T20 figures are 2-16.

Scott Kuggeleijn, Kristian Clarke and Tim Pringle are our bowling selections for Northern Brave. Kuggeleijn has the top odds with the bookmakers but has taken only one wicket in the tournament so far. Spinner Pringle keeps the runs down as well as being a wicket taking threat throughout.

🏆 Wellington Firebirds vs Northern Brave Prediction

Even if both teams were at full strength, Wellington Firebirds would still be expected to win the game as they have been so strong in their opening three matches. However, with Mitchell Santner unavailable for Northern Brave, it makes the clash appear even more uneven. We expect a competitive fixture but are backing Wellington Firebirds to win their fourth game of the season.
