The Super Smash matches come in fits and starts and so teams often have to play on consecutive days. That is exactly what the Canterbury Kings will be doing as they play the Northern Knights and the Wellington Firebirds on consecutive days.
This preview will focus on their encounter with the unbeaten Wellington Firebirds.
The Canterbury Kings have three wins from their four matches so far and so have done very well in the Super Smash. Their match against the Wellington Firebirds, who have won all five of their matches so far, could be one of the most exciting ones to witness.
Canterbury Kings vs Wellington Firebirds Super Smash 2020-21 is going to be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch on the 16th of January 2021.
The Canterbury Kings have enjoyed a lot of success with the bat in the tournament so far. Their best performer has been at the top of the order led by Chad Bowes and Leo Carter contributing down the order.
Not only has Bowes hit the most runs so far but he also been the most prolific six-hitter. It is safe to say that he is going to be the wicket that the Firebirds are most after. Daryll Mitchell adds some international talent in the middle and is going to be a big factor in this match as well.
He also has one fifty to his name already and is in pretty good touch. We can also expect some international players to join in now that the test matches are done and dusted with.
Matt Henry, Todd Astle, and Daryll Mitchell are three international leading the bowling lineup while Cole McConchie and Ed Nutall are very respected domestic performers too.
All in all, the Canterbury Kings have a very well-balanced lineup that is in fine form.
Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Jack Boyle, Daryl Mitchell, Cole McConchie, Leo Carter, Cameron Fletcher, Matt Henry, TD Astle, Will Williams, Blake Coburn.
Finn Allen is having a Super Smash to remember and he is surely making a case to be considered for the international team as well. He has scored 322 runs in five innings with four scores over 50. That is remarkable consistency and he is leading the way for the Wellington Firebirds.
We worry that the Forebords may be a bit too dependent on Allen for their runs, though, as the next best scorer has just 143 runs.
Still, having Devon Conway and Jimmy Neesham in your side adds a lot of batting depth. There is power and international class to call upon as needed.
We think the Wellington Firebirds are just a bit shy of the Canterbury Kings in batting depth but the form of Finn Allen is helping them overcome their potential weakness.
The bowling is going to be led by Hamish Bennett, Jimmy Neesham, and Peter Younghusband. Logan van Beek is also a very dependable bowler giving the Firebirds a very effective bowling lineup.
Just like their opponents, the Wellington Firebirds are a well-balanced team with most of the things in order.
Devon Conway, Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Tom Blundell, James Neesham, Michael Bracewell, Jamie Gibson, Troy Johnson, Logan van Beek, PY Husband, Hamish Bennett.
We think the team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Conditions in New Zealand are generally very batting-friendly and the small grounds make it difficult to defend a total.

There is no rain predicted in Christchurch and so we should be able to enjoy an uninterrupted contest. The pitch is going to be full of runs. It is flat and offers nothing to the bowlers, no matter what kind they are. The only way to escape punishment is through hitting your yorkers or getting the change of pace right.
A score of around 180-190 should be considered as par for the surface.
We are going to back the Canterbury Kings to end th winning streak of the Wellington Firebirds in this match. They have Matt Henry, which gives them a real attacking edge and their batting is also very good. If they can get the wicket of Finn Allen early then they have the match in the bag.
Bet on the Canterbury Kings to win.
