nk vs aa Match Prediction & Analysis

Super Smash League has just 2-3 games left in the league phase. Wellington, Canterbury, and Central Districts have almost sealed the knockout spots with Northern Knights, Auckland, and Otago all set end their season in group stages. Auckland ended their 6-match losing streak with a win in their last game whereas Northern Knights have won back-to-back matches to get some momentum. Both teams will look to finish the season on a high with a couple of wins under their belt. We expect the players to express themselves in this match with no qualification pressure around.

Teams Preview

Northern Knights Preview

Northern Knights won their second match chasing a DL revised target last night.  Kane Williamson (34 runs) and Tim Seifert (24 runs) played superbly with the bat while Katene Clark and Colin De GrandHomme came up with vital cameos to keep the scoring board moving in a rain marred contest.

Their bowling unit performed well as a unit with all six bowlers claiming a wicket including Brett Hampton with a wicket of his only delivery last night. No Bowler went for runs at over 7 RPO and they bundled the opposition for just 118 runs. Boult, Anurag Verma, Kuggleijn, and Joe Walker claimed 2 wickets each in the match.

Top players to bet on:

Kane Williamson – Williamson is one of top players in the international cricket and his return might boost the batting line-up. We expect him to light the stage on fire in this match.

Scott Kuggleijn – Kuggleijn has 11 wickets at an economy rate of over 9 RPO. He must look to control the run flow and chip along with crucial wickets to help his team win the match.

Northern Knights Predicted Playing XI:

Tim Seifert (wk), Katene Clarke, Kane Williamson, Colin de Grandhomme, Anton Devcich (c), Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Tim Southee, Anurag Verma, Joe Walker, Trent Boult

Auckland Aces Preview

Auckland were finally able to get their maiden victory this season.  Mark Chapman and Robert Donnell scored fifties in the match to build a strong platform with their 85-run partnership in the middle. Sean Solia, Guptill, and Glenn Philips will look to make a mark in this match too.

Ros Terak and Louis Delport kept the pressure on the batsmen with quiet overs in the middle overs and claimed 2 wickets each. Kyle Jamieson bowled an economical spell of 4-0-25-0 but would like to see how to manages to bowl against Kane in this contest. .

Top players to bet on:

Mark Chapman – Chapman came in at 42/3 and scored 73 runs to take his team to 181/5 at the fall of his wickets. He smashed 9 boundaries and 5 sixes in the match.  

Doug Bracewell – Bracewell had bowling figures of 4-0-22-2 and helped to dismiss two crucial partnership before it in the middle order to hinder the opposition`s momentum.

Toss: To Bowl

Pitch will ease out as the match progresses and we expect them to chase the target if they win the toss at this venue.

NK vs AA Winning Prediction

Both teams have a strong batting line-up but Northern Knights pips their opponent due to the presence of star players like Seifert, Williamson, and Devcich. On the bowling front, Knights have a better bowling attack when compared to Auckland. Northern Knights have strong team on paper and has momentum on their side when compared to Auckland. Auckland will look to win matches and play spoilsport in the match.But we expect northern Knights to win this contest and stay with an outside chance at the knockouts. 

Northern Knights will win the match
