Super Smash, 2018-19 | Auckland Aces vs Canterbury Kings, 9th Match Preview | AUK vs CTB Who Will Win

The New Year of Super Smash T20 will kick-off with a fixture between Auckland Aces and Canterbury Kings at the Eden Park in Auckland. Both are quality sides and with the start of the New Year, both teams would want to go into 2019 with a win under their belt.

Canterbury Kings

This would be the second encounter for Kings this season who were thumped in their opening fixture against Otago Volts by 5 wickets.

On a batting paradise, Canterbury rode on with a tremendous batting display from Stephen Murdoch who got 54 off 33 and Chad Bowes (42 off 31) which helped them post a formidable 184 on the board for the loss of 5 wickets.

They had a big score to defend but their bowlers disappointed as they were unable to stop the batting force of Otago and eventually lost the game by 5 wickets.

Ed Nuttall was taken to the cleaners as he gave away 53 runs in 3.3 overs, on the other hand, Kyle Jamieson was the pick of the bowlers with 2 scalps to his name from 4 overs.

Auckland Aces

After rain spoiling their opening game of the season, the Aces locked horns with Central Districts in their following affair and outclassed them by 5 wickets.

Martin Guptill scored a brilliant unbeaten 71 off 51 which included 10 fours and 2 sixes while William Somerville was the pick of the bowlers as he scalped 3 for 28 in 4 overs.
