Super Smash 2019-20 has got underway and even though there the New Zealand test team is playing across the pond in Australia, a lot of the ODI internationals are going to be available for the start of the Super Smash.
The Auckland Aces are one of the strongest Super Smash sides on paper and unlike past seasons, actually have a lot of their best players available for this match. The Aces are going to be starting their Super Smash 2019-20 campaign against the Otago Volts, a side that may not have the star power of its opponents but is still a very good team.
Auckland Aces vs Otago Volts Super Smash 2019-20 is going to be played at Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland on the 14th of December 2019.
It is difficult to imagine a match in the Super Smash where the Auckland Aces are not going to be the favorites if their first-choice squad is available to them. Martin Guptill, Glenn Phillips, Colin Munro, Mark Chapman, and Corey Anderson are all a part of the Aces squad for the opening game.
That is some serious hitting power right there.
Martin Guptill and Colin Munro have opened the batting together for New Zealand in international T20 cricket for quite some time now and to have them both play is a massive advantage. We are very excited to see Glenn Phillips bat as well.
He is one of the more exciting players in this squad and can be very inventive with his strokeplay. He also has the incentive of trying to get into the New Zealand squad for the T20 World Cup in 2020.
The batting power that the Auckland Aces have is far beyond anything that the Otago Volts are going to be able to muster.
Mitchell McClenaghan and Kyle Jamieson are going to be leading the bowling attack for the aces. These are again, two very good players and adept at playing T20 cricket. While McClenaghan only plays T20 cricket nowadays, Kyle Jamieson plays all first-class cricket and is knocking on the doors of the New Zealand side.
The Aces have the personnel to put on a show in their first match of the season.
Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, GD Phillips, Craig Cachopa, Mark Chapman, Sean Solia, Corey Anderson, Ronnie Hira, W Somerville, Kyle Jamieson, MJ Mcclenaghan.
It is a tough task that the Otago Volts face when they take on the Auckland Aces in their opening match of the Super Smash. The side has some very good players like Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, and Michael Rippon in its side but it may struggle to compete against the international quality that the Volts possess.
Anaru Kitchen is also a batsman that can cause some havoc but overall but the batting looks a bit thin. Players like Dale Philips and Josh Finnie will have to play the game of their lives to be able to outscore the Otago Volts.
The only way we see the Otago Volts being competitive is through their bowling.
Jacob Duffy, Michael Rippon, and Dean Foxtrot are some of the bowlers that are available for this match. The match-up of this bowling attack against the Auckland Aces side with all its international players seems a bit unfair.
However, stranger things have happened in cricket before and the T20 format is one where upsets are the most likely.
Hamish Rutherford, NT Broom, Dean Foxcroft, Nathan Smith, Anaru Kitchen, Joshua Finnie, MJ Rippon, Jacob Duffy, Max Chu, Michael Rae, Nick Kelly.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first
Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.
There is some rain expected early on match day in Auckland but it is scheduled to clear up around the time that the match is supposed to start. We should hopefully not have any interruptions or delays. The pitch at Eden Park is excellent for batting.
The boundaries are among the shortest in the world and there is a lot of scope to get massive scores.
Nothing is safe here but teams will look to reach 190-200 batting first.
There is no doubt in our mind that the team to back here is the home team. Auckland Aces have a star-studded batting lineup and their bowling attack is quite good as well. It will take a spectacular collapse or something truly extraordinary from the Otago Volts to cause an upset in this match.
Bet on the Auckland Aces to win.
