Wellington vs Northern Knights, Super Smash 2020-21

What a tournament this is turning out to be for Wellington. 3 wins in 3 games and they’re well on their way to the knockouts. However, there is still a fair bit of cricket left in the tournament thus any leniency can get them into trouble.

They’re up against Northern Knights who after 3 successive losses managed to pull of a good win against Central Stags.

Being the hosts, Wellington definitely has an edge do Northern Knights have something up their sleeves? Read our preview as Wellington and Northern Knights clash in the 12th match of the Super Smash. 

The match will be played at Basin Reserve and is set to get underway at 3:10 PM local time.

Wellington owe their success to their batsmen who’ve been very good in the tournament. Each and every batsmen have been played their roles to perfection.
Finn Allen has been exceptional with the bat. Same can be said about Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Michael Bracewell.

Jimmy Neesham hasn’t got a lot of opportunities but we all know that he can be very destructive on his day. 

In the bowling department, Hamish Bennett, Logan van Beek, Jimmy Neesham, Peter Younghusband and Rachin Ravindra have brilliantly complemented their batsmen.

An excellent effort by the bowlers helped Northern Knights pick up an impressive win over Central Stags. 

Henry Cooper, Brett Hampton, Zak Gibson, Fredrick Walker and Joe Walker was outstanding with the ball. 

Wellington, if they can replicate their performance, they’ll be in with a great chance.

Their batting though looks a little vulnerable as most of their batsmen have been pretty disappointing. Their have been few performances from Tim Seifert and Anton Devcich but collectively, their batting has been a big failure.

Looking at both teams, Wellington looks a far better team in terms of skills and form thus are our favourites for this match.

WEL vs NK Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Devon Conway at 10.0 and Tim Seifert at 9.0 are top picks from this section. Conway scored a brilliant 67 against Central Districts and is in good form but Tim Seifert has been very consistent in the last few games.
