Wellington Firebirds v Auckland Aces – Match Preview

The Aces are the most successful team in the history of the Super Smash T20. They have four titles. The Firebirds have one it once.

Their last four head-to-head encounters have brought two wins each. Let’s see who might swing the ratio their way this time.

Where: Basin Reserve, Wellington

When: Thursday, 24 December 2020

Start time: 05:10 IST (12:40 GMT)

Pitch conditions: This ground has never hosted T20I cricket, but has traditionally been good to the team setting rather than chasing targets in ODI competition. The captain to win the toss will likely choose to bat first.

Weather conditions: Cold and wet conditions are predicted for Wellington on Thursday. Hopefully, we’ll get in a full fixture, regardless. If it’s shortened, this could suit the side chasing an adjusted target.

Wellington Firebirds v Auckland Aces – Team News

The Firebirds have international talent in their ranks, including Devon Conway, who recently broke into the New Zealand limited-overs XI.

Their bowling resources are boosted by the presence of seamer Hamish Bennett, who can steer an attack that also includes the talented Logan van Beek.

The experienced Martin Guptill and solid Mark Chapman are available for the Auckland Aces’ batting order.

Will Somerville‘s Test career was all too short, but he remains key at domestic level in New Zealand. His spin will be important to the Aces’ pursuit of a fifth title.

Wellington Firebirds v Auckland Aces – Betting Tips and Prediction

Read on for more betting tips free of charge. These can help you with your predictions and are based on generous odds and the form of the players.

Choose Conway as the Firebirds’ Top Batsman

This time last year, Devon Conway was just a superb performer at domestic level in New Zealand cricket. Nowadays, he is a vital part of the Black Caps’ limited-overs XIs.

Conway is brimming with confidence on the back of promising showings against the West Indies. He is a good price at 1.725 with 22Bet to be the top Firebirds batsman.

Select Somerville as the Aces’ Top Bowler

Will Somerville is tall, experienced and could be really suited to the conditions expected at the Basin Reserve this week.

His extra height helps and he will be a lot for the Firebirds batsmen to manage. He could even open the bowling and is looking good to be the top Aces bowler at 5.0 with 1xBet.

Back a Century to Be Scored

The start of a new tournament, a fresh pitch and plenty of big-hitters on display have the first match of the Super Smash 2020-21 shaping up for potentially an early century.

Funbet have the best odds for this to happen. They have someone to ton up priced at 8.0, which is a lot more than some other bookies have priced up.
