The finals of the 2020-21 Super Smash T20 season are here. The summit confrontation will see Wellington taking on the Canterbury at Wellington Basin Reserve.
Throughout this Super Smash season, Wellington was dominant by winning nine matches and lost only one game. They finished at the top of the points table and assured them a direct entry into the final.
Wellington has been clinical and will start ahead of this big game as slight favourites. Their only defeat has come to Canterbury, who in the final are their rivals.
Canterbury had a resounding start to the season on the other side. Five of their first six games were won, and they appeared to be on a roll. However, their form dropped off a cliff and managed just one win in the last four games, although they played well to beat Central Districts in the Elimination Final in a close match.
Wellington and Canterbury have head-to-head records that are almost identical. Wellington has won 13 matches while Canterbury has finished 14 times on the winning side.
That looks nice for the day of the match in Wellington. The temperature is going to be comfortable and will hover around 20 degrees.
The pitch is likely to be a decent one to bat at Wellington, but there might also be something to offer for the bowlers in it. With the fresh ball, the pacers might find some motion, and there could also be some turn.
The par first innings score at this venue in this season of the Super Smash is around 163. Teams batting second have won four games, and the captain winning the toss will choose to field first even though this is a final.
