About the Match

It's just been a little over a week since New Zealand's premier domestic competition has started and we have already seen plenty of action. Martin Guptill and Mitchell Santner both marked their return to competitive Cricket with good performances. Guptill, in particular, was splendid in his comeback game as he guided his team, Auckland Aces, to scale a modest total against Central Districts at Pukekura Park. He'll be looking to extend his form as Auckland Aces face Canterbury Kings in their upcoming encounter on the first day of the new year at Auckland.

Match Preview

Auckland Aces

A win in their previous game propelled Aces to the third spot in the points table. They now have six points in two games and are just behind Northern Knights and Otago Volts. Another win here will take them to ten points to the top of the points table.

Electing to field first in tricky conditions at New Plymouth, Auckland Aces rocked Canterbury Kings in the fourth over when Matthew Quinn dismissed Dane Cleaver. Lokie Ferguson and Ronnie Hira both kept things tight thereafter and were rewarded with a couple of wickets each. Will Somerville was the last man to be introduced into the attack and he returned with the figures of 4-0-28-3.

Chasing a lowly total of 108, the Aces got off to a disastrous start as they lost Colin Munro and Glenn Phillips inside the first two overs. Mark Chapman and Martin Guptill then stitched a good partnership of 40 runs before Chapman was caught behind off Bracewell. Auckland Aces were once again in a spot of bother with another couple of wickets falling together, but Martin Guptill ensured a win for them with a composed and calculated innings of 71 runs off 51 balls.

Auckland Aces Starting Lineup

Craig Cachopa, Mark Chapman, Ronnie Hira, Benjamin Lister, MJ Mcclenaghan, Robert O'Donnell, GD Phillips, Matthew Quinn, Sean Solia, W Somerville, J Vince.


Canterbury Kings

Canterbury Kings are coming into this match after a week-long break and the players are expected to be better rested and perhaps well-acquainted with the conditions and play-style of Auckland Aces, their opponents for the next game.

Their previous match was Otago Volts who are currently placed at the second spot in the points table with Northern Knights ahead of them on net run rate. Batting first on a reasonably good surface of University Oval at Dunedin, Canterbury Kings scored 184 riding on vital knocks from Stephen Murdoch and Chad Bowes who scored 54 and 42 respectively. Small but important cameos from Fletcher and Kyle Jamieson provided much-needed impetus towards the end of their innings after they were rocked in the middle overs with Carter and Murdoch departing in quick succession.

Although they ended up 10 to 20 runs short of where they'd wanted, it was still a good total. Their bowlers needed to be disciplined and accurate, but barring McConchie and Benton, no bowlers were able to bowl below the required run rate. McConchie returned with the impressive figures of 4-0-26-1 while Benton picked up a wicket for 31 in his four. It was a poor day for Nuttall as he was hammered all around the park by Volts' batsmen. He conceded 53 without any success in his 3.3 overs. Consequently, Canterbury Kings lost the match as Otago Volts overhauled the total with five wickets in hand.

Canterbury Kings Starting Lineup

Chad Bowes, Leo Carter, Cameron Fletcher, Kyle Jamieson, Andrew Ellis, Stephen Murdoch, Ed Nuttall, Henry Burton Shipley, Jeremy Benton, Cole McConchie, Tyler Lortan.

Match Prediction

Burger King Super Smash is a shorter tournament as compared to Big Bash League or Indian Premier League and the importance of a win cannot be overstated. Canterbury Kings are yet to score their first win and are currently placed at the bottom of the table. Aces, on the other hand, are in the middle of the points table and a win will take them to the top of the ladder. Auckland Aces were brilliant with the ball in their previous encounter and have a powerful and experienced top-order with the likes of Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, and Glenn Phillips. Considering the aforementioned points and the fact that they are playing at home makes them favorites to win the upcoming encounter.
