WF vs CK Match Prediction & Analysis

The Wellington Firebirds are sitting at the top of the Super Smash table and pretty much guaranteed a place in the playoffs. They are going to be taking on the Canterbury Kings, another team that is firmly in the top half with some breathing room over the trailing teams.

The Wellington Firebirds have lost just one match in the tournament so far but the Canterbury Kings are not too far behind. They also have five wins from seven matches and cannot be taken lightly.

Wellington Firebirds vs Canterbury Kings Super Smash 2020-21 is going to be played at the Basin Reserve, Wellington on the 25th of January 2021.

Team Previews

Wellington Firebirds

The Firebirds were involved in a low-scoring match in their previous outing but eventually managed to get over the line. They kept the Otago Volts to 137 and then chased it down in 18 overs but for the loss of six wickets.

Michael Bracewell returned from his injury to help lead the side to victory with 47 not out.

There is no doubt that the Wellington Firebirds are the team to beat right now. They have a strong batting lineup led by Finn Allen, Devon Conway, and Tom Blundell. Players like Rachin Ravindra, Michael Bracewell, and Jamie Gibson add a lot of depth to the batting lineup as well.

Among the bowlers, Hamish Bennet, Logan van Beek, and Pater Younghusband have been the most impressive performers.

The Firebirds will be hoping to continue their winning momentum against the Canterbury Kings, a team they may well come up against in the playoffs.

Canterbury Kings

The Canterbury Kings are going to be keen to make amends after losing their previous match. That was a poor performance in which their batting suffered a complete failure. None of the batsmen were able to make an impact and they would be hoping for a better result this time around.

The onus is going to be on Cole McConchie and Jack Boyle to get the runs as the senior players of the team. McClure and Bowes have been ab it hit and miss at the top of the order but Daryl Mitchell has been in pretty good form.

As a batting unit, we think the canterbury Kings are a bit weaker than the Wellington Firebirds.

Their strength lies in the bowling department that features Matt Henry, Ed Nutall, Todd Astle, and Will Williams.

If Matt Henry has a good day then he is going to end up winning the match more often than not for the Canterbury Kings.

WF vs CK Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. We saw that there was a fair bit of help for the bowlers in the previous match and so chasing might be the option that both teams prefer.

Pitch and Conditions

There is some rain around in Wellington but hopefully, it is not going to interrupt the cricket for too long. The bowlers managed to get some movement in the air and off the pitch in the previous match. That will make the batsmen a bit more circumspect in this match and we could see another relatively low scoring game.

Something around 160 should be considered par for this match.

WF vs CK Betting Tips

We are going to stick with the Wellington Firebirds in this match. They have the advantage when it comes to batting and their bowling attack is pretty decent as well. Matt Henry gives the edge in the bowling to the Canterbury Kings but overall, we think that Kings lack the power in the batting unit needed to win.

Bet on the Wellington Firebirds to win.
