The Northern Districts (ND) will face Canterbury (CTB) in the inaugural Super Smash 2022 encounter on Friday, December 23 at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui. Here’s all you need to know about the ND vs CTB Dream11 prediction, including fantasy cricket advice, playing 11s, top player choices, and pitch reports, ahead of the match.
Northern District, the defending champions, will open Super Smash 2022 against last year’s runners-up Canterbury. Northern Knights enjoyed a fantastic season last year, winning 8 of 10 league games to reach the final. They beat Wellington in the Eliminator to earn a title match against the Knights, but lost by 56 runs.
|Batters||Jeet Raval, Chad Bowes, Leo Carter|
|All-rounders||Mitchell Santner, Cole McConchie, Henry Shipley|
|Bowlers||Scott Kuggeleijn, Zak Gibson, Matt Henry, Todd Astle|
Chad Bowes is a standout player in New Zealand’s domestic cricket. He was instrumental in Canterbury’s journey to the final, scoring 333 runs for the club. This season, a similar level of performance is anticipated of him.
If Canterbury is to reach the distance this time, the captain will have to play a critical role once again. He didn’t do well with the bat or ball last season, but there are no concerns about his abilities, and we expect a stronger performance from him this season.
Because of his versatility, Toss Astle may be an important player for Canterbury. He is a powerful spinner as well as a capable batsman for the club.
Mitchell is an excellent addition to any squad. Santner is one of the strongest spinners in the game in this style. He’s also a useful hitter down in the order.
Scott Kuggeleijn is another excellent talent to have. He is a fantastic all-rounder who is well-suited to this style of the game and has a plethora of variants under his sleeve.
Tim Seifert has frequently demonstrated his aggressive hitting style while competing in various franchise leagues throughout the world. He’s a risky choice because his consistency is questionable, but the day he fires, you’ll be rewarded handsomely.
Mount Maunganui’s surface is typically suitable for cricket. The ball moves around a little in the first few overs, but the small boundaries and constant bounce make this one of the greatest wickets to bat on.
The sky will be overcast, with a 20% chance of rain. The temperature will be between 22 and 15 degrees Fahrenheit.
