Wellington Firebirds Team News & Playing 11

WEL Team News

Canterbury Kings gave Wellington Firebirds a good match on Saturday but Michael Bracewell’s side will be looking to win this game even more convincingly. With Finn Allen leading the batters and Bracewell doing the same with the bowlers, we expect to see an unchanged side for Super Smash 2021 match .

WEL Key Players

  • Finn Allen - The keeper-batter top scored with a breezy 57 from 30 balls in the opening game. He also carried out a stumping during Canterbury’s innings.
  • Michael Bracewell - The captain led by example with the ball on Saturday and picked up the wickets of Cole McConchie, Cam Fletcher and Matt Hay.
  • Hamish Bennett - The experienced medium-fast bowler took 2-30 on a tough bowling wicket in Christchurch in the first match.

WEL Team Form

After securing the trophy last season, Wellington Firebirds look well capable of doing the same this season and have begun in fine form.

Finn Allen (wk), Luke Georgeson, Nic Greenwood, Michael Bracewell (c), Tim Robinson, Jamie Gibson, Nathan Smith, Logan van Beek, Peter Younghusband, Ben Sears, Hamish Bennett

Central Stags Team News & Playing 11

CS Team News

Although it was Dane Cleaver’s innings which got all the headlines, there were plenty of below par performances from Central Stags, particularly with the bat. With plenty of room for improvement, we predict the Stags will line-up with the same XI in this match. 

CS Key Players

  • Dane Cleaver - The keeper-batter produced an incredible innings to defeat Otago Volts. He hit 14 fours across his 54-ball unbeaten innings.
  • Tom Bruce - The skipper got a golden duck and conceded 11 runs off his only over in the opener. He is a far better player than that and we expect to see him perform in this match.
  • Jayden Lennox - The left-arm spinner kept the runs down as well picking up the wicket of Neil Broom against Otago Volts.

CS Team Form

In spite of reaching the final, the Stags did not end the season in strong form. The win against the Volts was required.

Central Stags Predicted Playing 11

Greg Hay, Bayley Wiggins, Dane Cleaver (wk), Ben Smith, Tom Bruce (c), Christian Leopard, Doug Bracewell, Ben Wheeler, Jayden Lennox, Blair Tickner, Seth Rance
