The eighth fixture of Super Smash will witness a square off between Central Districts and Wellington Firebirds which will be played at the Pukekura Park in New Plymouth on the New Year’s Eve.

Wellington Firebirds

Eyeing their opening win of the competition, Wellington Firebirds would aim a defiant performance in this fixture to get themselves kicking.

Central Districts

Central Districts, on the other hand, started their campaign with a 5 wicket win over the reigning champions Northern Knights but lost the following encounter at the hands of Auckland Aces by 5 wickets.
