Super Smash, 2018-19 | Auckland Aces vs Northern Knights, 9th Match Preview | AUK vs NK Who Will Win
The fourth match for the reigning champions Northern Knights will take place at the Seddon Park in Hamilton and against Auckland Aces who have only managed a single win from 3 matches thus far.
The reigning champions title defence looks in a definite direction as they have won 2 of their three games and are comfortably poised at the top of the ladder.
Their only loss came against Central Districts on December 27 where they lost by 5 wickets. This would be their first game of 2019 and they would like to make the most of it.
Meanwhile, Auckland Aces have a different story to narrate, they are currently placed fourth with 6 points and have 1 loss, 1 win and 1 no result game.
Their opening game against Wellington Firebirds was abandoned due to persistent rains but they did not have to wait much for their opening win as they got it in their following game against Central Districts by 5 wickets.
Though, it was a disappointing game last time around against Canterbury as they lost the encounter by 5 wickets after a torrid batting display where they were bundled out for a mere 110. That loss displayed some potholes in their batting which they would like to fill up to go places in the tournament.
