CK vs WF Match Prediction & Analysis

We are into the final week of Super Smash and so tightly contest has the tournament been that the fight for the playoffs is still on. Barring Wellington Firebirds, who are comfortably placed at the top spot, none of the sides have their place confirmed in the playoffs. Canterbury Kings were dealt with a setback to their campaign with a loss to Central Stags in a recent encounter and will be looking to get back amidst the thick of things with a win in their next match. Their next match, however, isn't an easy assignment as they take on Wellington Firebirds, the current table toppers. The match between the two sides is to be played on Thursday, 10th January, at Westpac Stadium, Wellington.

Team Previews

Canterbury Kings

After hunting down a total of 219 with considerable ease, it was expected from Canterbury Kings were to at least put up a fight in their subsequent matches. They, however, failed to keep the momentum going as they succumbed to scoreboard pressure while chasing a 181-run total against Central Stags.

Currently, they are placed at the fifth spot on the points table are in a desperate need of a win to get back into the contention for the playoffs. They have ten points to their need and would need at least eighteen points to stand an outside chance to qualify. The only things going for them is that they have three matches to go while the other teams in contention for playoffs have only two matches at their disposal.

In their last match, their bowling did a decent job of keeping Central Districts to 181, which certainly was a chasable total considering how high scoring the matches have been in Super Smash so far, but their batsmen made a mess of the chase. Stephen Murdoch finally found himself amongst the runs, but his cameo didn't complement Fletcher's knock enough as the Kings fell short by 17 runs. Cam Fletcher played a brilliant knock of 65 runs coming in just 37 balls, but no support from other end left Kings high and dry.

While Canterbury Kings have an exciting batting lineup that is capable to chase any total on their day, consistency has been a huge issue for them. They would need to bring out their A-game with not many matches to go in the league stage. Also, facing the Firebirds is not going to be easy, but if they play to their potential, the Firebirds will undoubtedly have their work cut out.

Wellington Firebirds

Wellington Firebirds' start to the tournament was nothing spectacular, winning only one of their first two matches, but have beautifully gained momentum as the tournament has progressed. They have lost just two matches over the course of eight matches and are the only team to ascertain a playoff spot as of now. They have the net run-rate of 0.767, which is not only the best amongst all teams, but also is an evidence of the kind of dominance the Firebirds have exhibited in the tournament.

Not long ago, Otago Volts were at the top of the table in the tournament, but a couple of losses at the hands of Firebirds has sent them packing to the third spot. Firebirds' most recent encounter was against the Volts, the match which eventually proved to be a mismatch.

Chasing a total of 168, Wellington Firebirds didn't even have to flinch as they won the match without a wicket lost. Devon Conway and Michael Pollard were both exceptional in the chase as they complemented each other to perfection. Devon Conway scored a fantastic hundred while Michael Pollard eased his way towards a well-compiled fifty. The Firebirds eventually chased down total with as many as 21 balls to spare.

Earlier with the ball, the Firebirds did a superb job to keep Volts to a manageable total. Despite fantastic knocks from Dean Foxtrot and Anaru Kitchen, the Volts were kept to a modest total. Michael Bracewell and Hamish Bennett were the pick of the Firebirds' bowlers as they returned with the impressive figures of 2 for 32 and 1 for 25 respectively.

All in all, with batting and bowling complementing each other brilliantly, there isn't a department where the Firebirds have struggled. Considering the form they are in, beating them is going to take a colossal effort, not just from the Kings in the upcoming encounter, but also from all the sides in all of their upcoming matches.

CK vs WF Betting Tips

With the end of league stage less than a week away, the importance of each fixture cannot be overstated. While Firebirds have already qualified for the playoffs and might decide to rest a couple of players in their remaining encouters, their certainly wouldn't be any discount on hunger. Coincidentally, they got their first win of this edition of Super Smash against the Kings and will be looking to repeat the feat. The Kings, on the other hand, have certainly improved over the course of the tournament and won't be as easy to roll down as they were in their first match. Comparing the two teams on form and on paper, the Firebirds are a better team, and, therefore, our pick to bet on in the upcoming fixture.
