The two most successful teams in Super Smash’s history (4 titles each), Wellington Firebirds and  Auckland Aces, are set to have their first encounter of this season. While Wellington have amassed a healthy 14 points in their first six games so far, the Auckland based team have managed to hardly gain 6 points.

With plethora of drama assured in a game involving Auckland, be it onfield plays or weather conditions, the season has been frustrating for the team. Even though Wellington too are coming from a loss in this game, Auckland desperately need this win.

Reason being they have seen five consecutive winless results. One look at their result summary will tell that they have been hit by bad luck more than their inability to make better plays.

Auckland Preview

Auckland Aces are having a miserable of the season after their season opener wins, and not all of it is their fault! In the six games they have played so far, two of their losing results have been decided by D/L method and one game was tied. ‘Circumstances decide the cricket you play’ was truly embodied by Auckland this season.

The team desperately needs to come out of this situation and for that, they will have to be dominating for the first ball itself.

They are itching to grab that second win of this season. For this, they will have to come all guns blazing, especially their bowling department. For this bowlers like Benjamin Lister (the team’s most successful at the moment this season) need to step up. And step up fast!

Key players: William O'Donnell, Ben Horne, Louis Delport, Sean Solia

Auckland Predicted Playing XI:

Robert O’Donnell (C), Ben Horne (WK), William O’Donnell, Danru Ferns, George Worker, Mark Chapman, Matthew Gibson, Cole Briggs, Louis Delport, Adithya Ashok, Sean Solia.

Wellington Firebirds Preview

While Wellington Firebirds might not be in deep waters like their counterparts in this game, it doesn't mean that they don't have their own potboilers.They managed to win its first three games with ease but has not seen the face of it in the rest three.

The team got the taste of their medicine from Otago in the last game, where their opposition completely bamboozled their batting, Even though the likes of Nathan Smith and Adam Milne’s fight was commendable, there’s only a few things a bowling lineup can do defending a total of 120 runs in a T20 game.

Firebirds' batting needs to step up as they are falling short visible. This was true in their three wins as well. If the team is serious to make a championship run this season, the batter needs to give some juice for their bowlers.

Key players: Logan van Beek, Hamish Bennett, Rachin Ravindra, Adam Milne

Devan Vishvaka, Nick Kelly, Rachin Ravindra, Troy Johnson (c), Nathan Smith, Tim Robinson, Adam Milne, Logan van Beek, Callum McLachlan (wk), Ollie Newton, Peter Younghusband

Weather Conditions

In the evening, it will be about 19°C, with a 1% chance of precipitation. There will be 76% humidity and a wind speed of about 33 Kmph.

Venue Details

Eden Park in Auckland is the venue for the match. It will be Auckland Aces’ fourth game on their home ground while it will be Wellington Firebirds’ first for this season here.

Toss: To Bowl

Three games that have taken place on this ground so far have given the chasing teams an additional advantage. The conditions, too, will favour in the team who will bat in the second innings.

We believe the team that wins the toss should bowl first.

Without a doubt, Wellington Firebirds, even with many players off to their national duty, have an added advantage in this game. Auckland Aces will need their bowler's help if they want any say in the tournament and keep their hopes alive. On the other hand.

We predict that Wellington Firebirds will defeat Auckland Aces.
