The match 2 of Super Smash 2020-21 will be held at the McLean Park in Napier, played between Central Districts and Wellington. The match will be kicked off on 27th December (Sunday) at 12:10 (GMT+6).
Wellington got exactly the start they would have wanted. They registered a victory with four wickets against a strong Auckland side. Bowling first, bowlers of Wellington were not exactly up to the performance, as they conceded 176 runs.
The target looked too steep to climb a mountain, but they showed great character and chased it down at the loss of six wickets, with five balls to spare. They will now take on the Central Districts, a formidable team with some well-known players in their squad, including Dane Cleaver and Doug Bracewell.
Though the game looks like an interesting encounter on paper, the gods of the weather might prevent that from happening. The chances of rainfall are 40%, and the temperature will stay around 15°C.
In the last edition of this competition, the McLean Park’s pitch supported the batsmen. The overcast weather, however, may make their lives a little challenging tomorrow.
