Northern Brave vs Canterbury Kings Predictions


Northern Brave have been superb this season, winning eight of their 10 matches, including both against the Kings. My best bet is for the quality in the Brave ranks to shine through with victory.

Head to Head


The Northern Brave have won four of their last five matches against the Wellington Firebirds, including both matches this season. Last time they met was a week ago where the Brave cruised to an eight wicket victory.

Northern Brave Form


The Northern Brave cruised into the final after topping the Super Smash regular season table. They ended on 32 points with eight wins from their 10 round robin matches.

In their last match, the Brave beat the Wellington Firebirds by two wickets in Wellington. Bowling first, Trent Boult struggled for rhythm but Tim Southee found form, taking 3-20 to restrict the Firebirds to 167 runs.

The chase was far from simple with the match swinging from one side to the other. In the end, Mitchell Santner’s 59 off 35 balls was enough to steer the Northern Brave to a two wicket success.

Northern Brave Injuries & Team News


The Brave have dominated this season and the return of internationals has just made them more dangerous. They could also have Kane Williamson back for the final.

Canterbury Kings Form


The Canterbury Kings finished second on the Super Smash table with seven wins from their 10 round robin matches. They then had to face the Wellington Firebirds in the eliminator with the winner advancing to the final.

The Firebirds batted first and put in a commanding performance, scoring 190 runs in their 20 overs. Going into the chase the Firebirds were favourites to defend that score but a magnificent 63 off 25 balls by Cam Fletcher saw the Kings get over the line.

Chad Bowes scored 51 runs at the top of the order while Leo Carter contributed 44 in the middle order.

Canterbury Kings Injuries & Team News


The Kings don’t have as much international quality as their opponents but have still welcomed back players like Tom Latham and Daryl Mitchell. They should be unchanged.

Verdict

The Northern Brave have been dominant this season have defeated the Kings in both of their last two matches. I'm backing the Brave to win the Super Smash with Tim Seifert to top score.

Chat Bowes has been consistent for most of the season for the Kings. He is backed to top score.
