The Auckland Aces and the Central Districts Stags are right next to each other in the Super Smash 2019-20 league table. They have also just played out a very close match against each other which makes the prospect of another hard-fought exciting encounter a distinct possibility.
The Auckland Aces have two wins from five completed matches this season. Not a very good record but it is important to note that the two victories have come in the previous three matches. The Central Stags are a bit better placed with three wins from six completed matches but they have just won a single match out of their previous four.
A win here will elevate the winning side by one position on the league table and that is a big motivation as the end of the group stage approaches.
Auckland Aces vs Central Districts Stags Super Smash 2019-20 is going to be played at Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland on the 4th of January 2020.
It is hard to imagine a side so stacked with international talent as the Auckland Aces struggle in a domestic competition. The presence of players like Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Corey Anderson, and Mitchell McClenaghan has not been the defining difference it was expected to be.
Thankfully for the Auckland fans, the big guns have started to come into form and could be peaking at the right time.
Martin Guptill top-scored with 83 runs to his name in the previous match while Colin Munro also got an aggressive 68. Corey Anderson chipped in with 28 off just 16 balls as the Auckland Aces chased down 194 with ease.
The Auckland batting lineup is very strong on paper and it is not unreasonable to expect at least one or two of the big-names to be firing in every match.
The placid batting wickets that we have seen in New Zealand have not been the kindest to the bowlers, however, we would still like to see some better performances from the Auckland bowlers. Mitchell McClenaghan has been very expensive in this tournament and went for 49 runs without picking up a wicket in the previous match.
Ben Lister, Ronnie Hira, Mark Chapman, and Sean Solia are the other bowlers in the attack. It is clear that the major work for the Aces will have to be done by the batsmen.

The Central Stags overturned their run of losses with an excellent chase of 185 in their previous match. The top-order batters got a start but were unable to carry on and it was left to the middle-order to see them through.
Kieran Noema-Barnett, Josh Clarkson, and Willem Ludick made the most of their opportunities and made important contributions.
The fact that most of the batsmen have had a decent hit in the middle is a good sign for the Central Stags. They would be a bit perturbed about the lack of big scores from the top order especially as they are taking on what is the strongest batting lineup in the competition.
The role of the bowlers becomes more important than ever in such contests.
The Central Stags have Ben Wheeler, Blair Tickner, and Ajaz Patel as their leading bowlers. All three of them are very experienced and are in good form. Kieran Noema-Barnett is also a very handy bowler and can be expected to bowl his full quota in every match.
The Central Stags seem a bit outgunned on paper, particularly in the batting department, but their bowling is a shade better than the Auckland Aces.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Two out of the three matches played in Auckland have been won by the chasing team in Super Smash 2019-20.

Excellent weather with no chance of rain has been forecast in Auckland for match day. There have been three completed matches in Auckland so far in which four innings of 190 or more have been recorded. This is a clear indication of how good a batting surface it is and why the Auckland Aces have a distinct advantage going into this game.
A score of around 185-190 should be seen as par batting first.
The Auckland Aces have won just one out of the three games they have played at home so far but they are in much better form now. The Aces certainly have the better batting lineup and can easily overpower the Central Stags bowling.
The biggest risk seems to be going too hard while batting first and ending up losing too many wickets, something that has happened to them already. All things considered, though, the Auckland Aces seem like the side to back in this match.
Bet on the Auckland Aces to win.
