Super Smash 2020-21, Final: Wellington vs Canterbury Kings – Who will win the match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

Wellington will be looking to win back to back Super Smash titles when they take on Canterbury in the final at Basin Reserve, Wellington. The match is all set to get underway at 8:30 AM IST (3:00 AM GMT) ( 4:00 PM local)

 Preview

The final of the Super Smash will be played between Wellington and Canterbury; the two best teams of the tournament. Wellington is in middle of a juggernaut and looks good to defend their title. Finn Allen has been in sensational form and is leading the charts with 496 runs at an average of 62 and a strike rate of 196. He’s been on a rampage and will be very hard to stop. Along with him, Devon Conway and Tom Blundell are turning on the heat. Jimmy Neesham, Troy Johnson and Michael Bracewell forms a brutal batting line up. The bowling is also second to none and comprises of quality bowlers like Hemish Bennett, Logan van Beek, Jimmy Neesham and Peter Younghusband.

Canterbury has a massive task on their hand but they’re the only team to have defeated Wellington in Super Smash 2020-21. The problem with Canterbury is that they are riding on the performance of just two players; Cole McConchie and Daryl Mitchell. Other batsmen have been very inconsistent. Canterbury’s bowling looks good with Matt Henry, Ed Nuttall, Will Williams, Daryl Mitchell, Todd Astle but it’ll be up to the batsmen to put big runs on the board. If they play well, Canterbury will pose a stern challenge to Wellington.

Super Smash 2020-21, Elimination Final: Central Stags vs Canterbury Kings – Who will win the match? Best Betting Odds

Match Details

Canterbury will take on Central Districts in the elimination final of the Super Smash. The match will be played at the Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland and is set to get underway at 4:30 AM IST (11:00 PM GMT) (12:00 PM local time)

Preview

Central Stags played two matches against Canterbury in the Super Smash 2020-21 and won both of them. They’ll take so much confidence from these wins and will go in this crunch elimination final as the favourites. George Worker has been in fine form and is the second leading run scorer of the tournament with 420 runs in 10 games. Josh Clarkson is another batsman that has been very good with the bat.

Stags will be pleased to see Ross Taylor back among the runs as the destructive Kiwi stroked a magnificent 65 of 36 in the last match. Coming to the bowling, Dough Bracewell, Blair Tickner, Ajaz Patel, Joey Field and Jayden Lennox will pose a stern challenge to the opposition.

Canterbury rest their hopes on Daryl Mitchell and Cole McConchie, who’ve been their best batsmen of the tournament. The other players like Chad Bowes, Ken McClure and Jack Boyle can be dangerous but they’ve not been consistent. You’d feel that if Stags can get McConchie and Mitchell early, they’ll be ahead in the game.

They do have a decent bowling line up in Ed Nuttall, Matt Henry, Will Williams, Todd Astle and Daryl Mitchell but they’ve failed to restrict the Stags in both their match. They’ll need a much better performance from their bowlers if they’re to stand a chance in the match.

Pitch Report

Auckland have always produced good batting wickets. Also it’s not a big ground thus the match could be a high scoring game.

Canterbury Kings

Expected Top Players

George Worker has been in top form and is the second leading run scorer of the tournament with 420 runs in 10 matches at an average of 42. An unfortunate run out cost him his wicket in the last match but he can be backed to come good in the next game.

Ross Taylor brings in a lot of experience which can come in handy in these knock out games. His form was a cause of concern for the Stags but a match winning 65 of 36 in the last match must have induced a lot of confidence in him. If gets going, he can single handedly win the game for his team.

Daryl Mitchell has played a crucial role in Canterbury’s success in the tournament. He’s scored 251 runs in 8 game at an average of 31 and a strike rate of 128. He’s been pretty decent with the ball as well. He has scores of 75 and 35 in the two matches he played against the Stags.

Our Betting Tips

While both teams have had a decent tournament Stags look a lot more balanced than Canterbury. Also, they’ve defeated them twice in the league matches. We would like to Stick with Stags as the winner of this match

 Predicted Winner

For us, Central Stags are the favourites for this match.
