AA vs CK Match Prediction & Analysis

We are moving forward with a frantic pace in Super Smash 2020 but the two teams still remain without any points against their name. Northern Knights registered their third loss of the season as they lost against Otago Volts in a relatively low scoring encounter. Standing beside them are Auckland Aces, who too are yet to get off the mark in the tournament.

Auckland Aces will be up against Canterbury Kings in the next match of the tournament and considering the position of the two sides on the ladder, this match is not going to be easy for the Aces. The two teams will lock horns at Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland, on 3rd December 2020.

Team Previews

Auckland Aces

Auckland have undoubtedly the best record in the history of the competition and going by the way they have started off this year, they are likely to struggle to keep their crown intact. They have already played three matches and haven't won any. Their net run-rate, as well, is a negative 2.096, which could prove to be a massive factor should things get tight at the back end of the tournament.

It's not that the Aces do not have firepower available with them. However, their players haven't been able to adapt to the conditions and that has adversely affected their performance. Their recent defeat came against Central Districts as Auckland Aces failed to do anything of substance in both departments of the game. Chasing a total of 228, the Aces never looked in the game as they lost both their openers inside the powerplay. A brief recovery followed the two quick wickets, but Auckland always stayed behind. They eventually finished their innings with 156 runs to their name.

Auckland's trouble with the ball haven't been any less. We saw their bowlers being carted away for plenty in the previous matches and it wasn't any different against the Central Districts. Even though William Somerville and Benjamin Lister were terrific upfront, the other bowlers failed to inflict any damage whatsoever. Somerville and Lister gave away 42 runs in their eight overs combined and picked up five wickets between them. The other bowlers, on the other hand, gave away 185 runs in 12 overs and managed to pick only one scalp.

All in all, the Aces seem to be in all sorts of shambles. Their batting isn't firing consistently and their bowlers have been too unpredictable. Auckland have a decent team on paper, but they'd need a miraculous effort in the upcoming match, considering how their execution skills in the tournament have been.

Canterbury Kings

Canterbury Kings played their first match quite early in the tournament, but they haven't played any match after that, which is quite a surprise. They registered a massive win in that match and are now placed at the third spot with four points to their name. They also have a terrific net run-rate of 3.05.

It is difficult to comment on the form of any team when that team has played only one match. Canterbury's only outing in this year's Super Smash was against Otago Volts, wherein the Kings did incredibly well. They did feature in a practice match against Pakistan A side, though.

Against Otago Volts, the Kings looked in terrific touch as they won the match by an imposing margin of 61 runs. Almost all their players, be it bowlers or batsmen, played their roles to perfection. Chad Bowes and Ken McClure scored 72 and 42 runs respectively as they laid a perfect foundation for their lower-order players to end the innings on a high.

With the ball, it was Matt Henry and Ed Nuttal who wreaked havoc on the Volts' batsmen, picking up six wickets for just 43 runs between them. They got excellent support from their remaining bowlers as they dismissed Otago Volts completely for just 124 runs.

AA vs CK Betting Tips

Even though the Kings have played just one match, their performance in that match was enough to see the kind of strength they have. Auckland Aces, on the other hand, appear to be a mere shadow of themselves with most of their players out on national duty. Considering the lineups and the form of two sides, the Kings walk in as firm favorites to emerge on top in this upcoming encounter.
