Chance of Winning





Our Prediction

Wellington are favorites to win

Wellington vs Canterbury, Super Smash 2021

Wellington will take on Canterbury in the final of the Super Smash 2021. The match will be played at the Basin Reserve as is set to get underway at 4:00 PM local time

So, we’re into the last game of the Super Smash 2021 and it’s between the two best teams of the tournament. Wellington has been on a roll in the tournament and lost just 1 match in the league stages. Not the wins, but the margin of their wins are scary. Also, look at the form of their batsmen; everyone looks at the peak of their game. Finn Allen is the top scorer of the season. 

Devon Conway and Tom Blundell have been brilliant. Jimmy Neesham, Troy Johnson, Michael Bracewell, all are match winners on their own. They have plenty of quality in the bowling as well. Hemish Benett has been brilliant. So does Logan van Beek, Peter Younghusband and Jimmy Neesham. At the moment, they look unbeatable but Canterbury is the only team to have defeated them in this season, so they can’t be counted out. 

Canterbury definitely are the underdogs but they’re a very good team. Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie has batted well. Cam Fletcher has also looked good in the last two games. However, the openers, Ken McClure and Chad Bowes have been disappointing. They need to give them a good start to set a platform for the middle order. They do have the potential to do that.

The bowling certainly looks good with Matt Henry,Ed Nuttall, Will Williams, Daryl Mitchell, Todd Astle and Cole McConchie. Only if the batsmen can bat well, Canterbury will pose a stern challenge to Wellington.

Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WEL Team News

Wellington are going to go in the same squad for the final against Canterbury. We don’t see them making any change in the playing XI either. 

WEL Key Players 

  • Finn Allen - Allen has been sensational and is the leading run scorer of the tournament with 496 runs at an average of 62 and a strike rate of 196. He scored a magnificent 73 in the last game and is expected to perform well in the next game
  • Devon Conway- Devon Conway looks to be at the peak of his form. He’s the second best batsmen in terms of runs scored in the tournament for Wellington. He was in scintillating form against Auckland in his last match and played a match winning knock of 91. He too is expected to have a good game.
  • Jimmy Neesham - He’s the X factor in this team. His all round skills will be very crucial for Wellington.

Canterbury Team News & Playing 11

CAN Team News

They’re also most likley to go in with the same playing XI. Though they have added Sean Davey in their squad, we don’t think he can make a cut into the team.

CAN Key Players

  • Daryl Mitchell - Mitchell has been scintillating for Canterbury. He played a magnificent knock of 88 in the last game and is expected to bat well in the big final. He’ll be handy with the ball as well.
  • Cole McConchie - He’s also been in fine form of late. As a skipper he’d want to lead Canterbury from the front. His all round skills will also be very valuable for Canterbury.
  • Matt Henry - Matt Henry will have the responsibility to get some early breakthroughs to get Wellington under pressure. He have the skills to do so.

Canterbury had a decent league stage with 6 wins and 4 losses. They defeated Central Districts in the eliminator to march into the final.

Wellington has been red hot form. Their batsmen look to be at the peak of their form and the bowlers are complementing them well. Canterbury is mostly dependent on Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie. We think Wellington will be able to defend their title

WEL vs CAN Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Devon Conway at 10 and Tom Blundell at 9.0 is a great option. Both players scored a brilliant 50 in the last match and are in great form

  • Batsmen

    Finn Allen at 9.5, Chad Bowes at 9.0 and Troy Johnson at 8.5 are solid picks from this section. Finn Allen is the leading run scorer of the tournament and is in red hot form. Bowes and Johnson are selection because they’re the best players from the remaining options.

  • All rounder

    Jimmy Neesham at 10, Cole McConchie at 9.5 and Daryl Mitchell at 9.5 adds a lot of depth to the team. Jimmy Neesham is an international quality player that can win you games on his own. He can be destructive with the bat. He has been good with the ball as well.

  • Bowlers

    Peter Younghusband at 8.5, Matt Henry at 8.5 and Logan van Beek at 8.5 will complete a strong team. 

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Finn Allen will be our skipper while Daryl Mitchell can be backed as his deputy
