Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Northern Knights are still due to taste their first win in Super Smash 2019-20. They have suffered back to back two defeats so far in the ongoing tournament. They are currently struggling with the poor form of their top and experienced players.
Tim Seifert and Dean Brownlie have failed to click good knocks with their bat but they would be eager to bring their side on winning track if they are sighting to qualify for the semi-finals. Auckland also got off to a poor start by losing a close encounter against Otago. But, the good thing with them is their players are in good form in every department.
Glenn Phillips has already scored a century in his one outing and Martin Guptill has also shown some glimpse of his good form. The duo will play an important role in the upcoming game against Knights.
One department in which they need to work is their bowling and if their bowlers managed to come up with some convincing performances then Auckland might taste their first win in Super Smash 2019-20.
There are no chances of rain with a perfect day for a cricket match. However, the temperature is expected to deviate between 13 and 23 Degree Celsius according to Accuweather.
The track at Seddon Park is expected to go in favour of the batsmen. In most of the international games played at this ground, the batters have always held an upper edge over the bowlers. In one game played so far in this tournament, the team batting first ended up posting a big total of 197 runs. However, the team chasing the team found it quite difficult to chase that big target. And, it is expected that the side winning the toss will look to bat as far as trends are concerned.
Average first innings score: 197 (1 completed T20 at the venue in Super Smash 2019-20)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0; Lost – 1

Tim Seifert is a brilliant opener, who is a very good hitter of the ball but he is currently struggling with poor form. He would be eager to click a good knock with the bat. Looking forward to his form, he could be a risky pick but will be worth for any Grand League Side.
Auckland is expected to win this match.
