Who will winWho will win Super Smash 2021

Wellington Firebirds might be a tempting bet as defending champions but Devon Conway’s New Zealand call-up could be costly for them. He was key last season, hence his call-up, and the Firebirds will miss him when he is not available.

Canterbury Kings being installed as favourites is a surprise too, however. With just one title to their name in this tournament, they are actually the least successful in its history.

A team like Northern Knights – blessed with such a depth of quality – could be an interesting dark horse to back, then.

Which Team will Win Super Smash 2021

2019-20 Result: Runners-up

Auckland have some notable T20 hitters in their squad and, should Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman and Colin Munro be available for most of the season, the Aces have plenty of firepower.

Add to that their trio of New Zealand contracted players – Martin Guptill, Lockie Ferguson and Kyle Jamieson – and there is strength in the batting and bowling departments.

It has been a few years since the last of their record-equalling four victories in the tournament, so the Aces – installed as second-favourites with the bookmakers – are due some success.

Much will depend on player availability. At full strength, they have a strong T20 line-up, but they will also be hit hard by international call-ups.

Auckland Aces Team Squad

Robert ODonnell(c), Ben Horne(w), Sean Solia, Graeme Beghin, Ben Lister, Olly Pringle, William Somerville, Bradley Rodden, William O Donnell, Ross ter Braak, Danru Ferns, Ryan Harrison

Auckland Aces Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Auckland Aces are second favourites with Bet365. You can back them at 4.33 to win the 2020-21 Super Smash.

2019-20 Result: Fifth

Despite finishing a lowly fifth last season, the Kings have been listed as favourites with Bet365 for this year’s tournament.

They will benefit from the strength of their domestic players – the likes of Todd Astle, Chad Bowes, Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie being likely to be available for the full season.

With just one win to their name in the history of the tournament, the Kings are perhaps are a surprising choice for favourites this season.

Nevertheless, there is potential in this team and – crucially – some good strength in depth too.

Canterbury Kings Team Squad

Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Jack Boyle, Cole McConchie (c), Leo Carter, Cam Fletcher (wk), Matthew Hay, Matt Henry, Todd Astle, Will Williams, Ed Nuttall, Sean Davey

Canterbury Kings Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Canterbury Kings are 4.00 favourites to win the 2020-21 Super Smash with Bet365.

2019-20 Result: Fourth

Central Stags finished just outside the play-off places last season in fourth and they will need to find a big improvement if they are to bridge the gap to the top three this time.

Ross Taylor, Ajaz Patel and Will Young are among their New Zealand internationals, with the likes of Seth Rance, George Worker and Tom Bruce their top domestic stars.

While Taylor strengthens any team he comes into, with just three players with New Zealand contracts they do have a good depth to their squad and can stick with a fairly consistent line-up.

If Worker and Bruce can set the tone, that will be the key in stepping up from mid-table to the play-offs.

Central Stags Team Squad

George Worker, Bayley Wiggins, Dane Cleaver (wk), Tom Bruce (c), Josh Clarkson, Kieran Noema-Barnett, Doug Bracewell, Christian Leopard, Joey Field, Ajaz Patel, Blair Tickner, Jayden Lennox

Central Stags Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Central Stags are 6.00 to win the 2020-21 Super Smash with Bet365

2019 Result: Sixth

Bottom of the pile last season, Northern Knights did only finish two points off third place in a tight table, however.

It is no reason to write them off then, and the biggest factor in how they perform this season will be when, how often and who they have available from their New Zealand contracted players.

While the likes of Trent Boult and Kane Williamson rarely feature, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi would make a big difference if they were available to call upon.

Without them, Scott Kuggeleijn leads the bowling and Dean Brownlie, Tim Seifert and Anton Devcich supply T20 quality too.

They may have been last in 2019-20, but there is enough about this squad to suggest the play-offs are still in their reach this time around.

Northern Knights Team Squad

Tim Seifert (wk), Katene Clarke, Dean Brownlie, Henry Cooper, Anton Devcich (c), Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Zak Gibson, Joe Walker, Brett Randell, Matthew Fisher, Frederick Walker

Northern Knights Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Northern Knights are 5.50 to win the 2020-21 Super Smash with Bet365

2019 Result: Third

On the one hand, Otago Volts have no international players. On the other, that is an advantage as it means they can guarantee a consistent line-up.

There is international quality in their squad – Hamish Rutherford supplies that, for example – but they are not laden with big-name stars.

Consistency was enough to finish second in the table and third overall last season, but it remains to be seen if they can go any further in 2020-21.

They may be too dependent on the likes of Rutherford, Dean Foxcroft and Michael Rippon to make the leap.

Otago Volts Team Squad

Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Nick Kelly, Mitch Renwick (wk), Llew Johnson, Anaru Kitchen, Josh Finnie, Michael Rippon, Matthew Bacon, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jacob Duffy (c), Dale Phillips, Travis Muller

Otago Volts Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Otago Volts can be backed at 6.00 with Bet365 to win the 2020-21 Super Smash.

2019 Result: Winners (Third title)

Champions for a third time last season, Wellington Firebirds may be victims of their own success this time around.

Star man Devon Conway has now qualified for New Zealand citizenship and his international call-up could cost them one of their key players.

There are other key players in this squad when Conway, Jimmy Neesham and Tom Blundell are unavailable.

Ollie Newton, Logan van Beek, Michael Bracewell and Hamish Bennett are among those who could make a difference.

But Conway was absolutely central to last season’s success and there is no doubt they lose a lot without him.

Wellington Firebirds Team Squad

Fraser Colson, Rachin Ravindra, Michael Bracewell(w/c), Troy Johnson, Finn Allen, Lauchie Johns, Logan van Beek, Jamie Gibson, Hamish Bennett, Peter Younghusband, Ian McPeake, Michael Snedden

Wellington Firebirds Super Smash 2020-21 odds

Wellington Firebirds are 6.50 outsiders to win the 2020-21 Super Smash with Bet365.

About Super Smash

Defending champions Wellington Firebirds kick off the latest season of New Zealand’s premier domestic T20 competition, the Super Smash, on Christmas Eve.

The 2020-21 Dream 11 Super Smash sees New Zealand’s top T20 stars compete in a double round-robin league phase across the next two months before a preliminary final and final.

The six teams represent Auckland, Canterbury, Central Districts, Northern Districts, Otago and Wellington 

First run in 2005-6, Wellington Firebirds earned their third title last season but Auckland Aces – with four wins – remain the tournament’s most successful team.

Canterbury Kings are favourites for this year’s tournament, meanwhile, with the Firebirds actually outsiders.
