Wellington Firebirds vs Northern Knights Predictions


The Wellington Firebirds have won all three of their matches thus far with relative ease. While Tim Seifert offers the Northern Knights hope, the Firebirds have quality all over the team so should be able to take the victory.

  • Wellington Firebirds’ Finn Allen has scored 53 & 91 runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • Wellington Firebirds have won their last 3 matches.
  • Northern Knights’ Tim Seifert has scored 46, 74 & 22 runs in his last 3 matches.
  • Northern Knights have lost 3 of their last 4 matches.

Head to Head


The Northern Knights hold a 16-14 lead in 30 matches played against the Wellington Firebirds.

Their last match, however, ended in a huge nine wicket win for the Firebirds at Mount Maunganui. This match was played just a few days ago.

Wellington Firebirds Form


The Wellington Firebirds remain unbeaten in the 2020/21 Super Smash season after three matches. They currently top the table with three wins from three.

The Firebirds began their campaign with a four wicket win against the Auckland Aces before defeating the Central Stags by 39 runs. In their last match the Wellington-based outfit thrashed the Northern Knights by nine wickets.

Batting first the Northern Knights scored 148 runs at Mount Maunganui. In reply the Finn Allen scored 91 and Rachin Ravindra 40 runs as the Firebirds cruised home with four overs to spare.

Wellington Firebirds Injuries & Team News


The Wellington Firebirds welcome back Tom Blundell from international duty. It is unlikely that he will open the batting with Devon Conway and Finn Allen looking set at the top.

The New Zealand international does however offer plenty of quality to a lineup that already has Jimmy Neesham batting at four.

Northern Knights Form


The Northern Knights sit fifth in the Super Smash table with just one win from their opening four matches. That victory came in their last match against the Central Stags at Seddon Park.

In was a superb bowling performance by the Northern Knights, led by Brett Hampton who took 3-21 in four overs. They restricted the Stags to 117 runs in their 20 overs.

It was a simple chase with Anton Devcich continuing his fine form with 35 not out. The Knights won by six wickets with more than two overs to spare.

Northern Knights Injuries & Team News


The Northern Knights could make a couple of changes with Mitchell Santner available again after New Zealand completed their Test series. Jeet Raval can also come into the side.

Tim Seifert remains key to the Knights and is in good form.
