We have had a couple of upsets to start the Super Smash 2019-20 season once again showing us just how much talent there is in the New Zealand cricket structure. It is time for the two remaining teams of the tournament to get their campaigns underway as well.
The Canterbury Kings are going to be taking on the Wellington Firebirds as the action moves to Christchurch. These were the two teams that finished at the bottom of the table in the previous season and were in fact, just separated by a rained out fixture.
Getting off to a better start and getting momentum into the Super Smash is going to be crucial for both teams.
Canterbury Kings vs Wellington Firebirds Super Smash 2019-20 is going to be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch on the 15th of December 2019.
The Canterbury Kings have named their squad of twelve ahead of their opening fixture and it seems to be pretty light on international quality. That, however, as we have seen in the Super Smash already is not a reason to count out a team.
The batting is going to choose from Stephan Murdoch with Chad Bowes, Sean Davey, and Cole McConchie in the top order and Jack Boyle and Sean Davey as useful backups.
Perhaps the best part about the Canterbury Kings squad is that there are plenty of players that can contribute to more than one aspect of the game. Andrew Ellis, Ed Nutall, and Will Williams are going to play a major role in the bowling.
Andrew Ellis is also a very good middle-order batsman that can hit the ball a long way. His contribution at the spot alongside Cam Fletcher is going to be quite crucial for the Canterbury Kings since they will be needed to provide the six-hitting boost at the end of the inning.
There is no Kylie Jamieson in the squad anymore, which is a big loss, and so the Canterbury Kings are going to have to work hard to get their bowling right. The batting should be pretty well taken care of, though.
Chad Bowes, Jack Boyle, Stephen Murdoch, Cole McConchie, Cameron Fletcher, Andrew Ellis, Leo Carter, Henry Burton Shipley, Will Williams, Blake Peter Coburn, Ed Nuttall.
The Wellington Firebirds are going to be tough side for the Canterbury Kings to come up against. The Firebirds have some good international players in their squad and they also have one of the most promising young all-rounders in New Zealand cricket at the moment.
The batting is going to be led by Michael Bracewell and Devon Conway at the top of the order with Malcolm Nofal, Fraser Colson, Michael Pollard, and Jamie Gibson in the mix as well. This is a relatively experienced batting side with players that have performed at the New Zealand domestic level for many years.
The presence of Jimmy Neesham in the squad is a big positive. He is a brutal hitter of the ball and can be counted upon to bowl his quota of overs in every match that he plays. Jimmy Neesham is going to be joined by Rachin Ravindra, another all-rounder, who has played for New Zealand’s under-19 squad with distinction in the past.
He could be one of the players to look out for in this tournament.
Jeetan Patel, Logan van Beek, and Hamish Bennett are all very experienced players with international matches and years of domestic service to draw from.
The look of the Wellington Firebirds squad is more balanced at the moment and the international quality certainly helps as well.

A clear day without any threat of rain has been forecast in Christchurch on match day. The Hagley Oval will throw up a beautiful batting pitch for this match, we have no doubt about that at all. The surfaces in New Zealand are flat and the outfields very fast. The size of the grounds are also very small and so the opportunity to get some very big scores is always present.
Anything around 180-190 should be considered as par.
We like the squad of the Wellington Firebirds in this match and think it has a slight upper hand. Both teams have a decent batting lineup that is largely composed of proven domestic names but the bowling and the all-round balance that Wellington Firebirds have give it the edge.
Bet on the Wellington Firebird to win.
