Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Canterbury is currently on the verge of getting knocked out from the tournament. They are currently ranked fifth in the points table with 10 points. Now they have to win all the games left in order to stay in the race for the semi-finals. At the moment, Canterbury is struggling with the inconsistency of their players in bowling and batting.
And, they will soon have to find a solution for the same. They have some good batters in their line up that comprises of Chad Bowes, Jack Boyle and Stephen Murdoch that will be having the responsibility on their shoulder to win the crucial game for their side.
Wellington has all their spaces covered as their players are in prime form in their respective traits. Thir side has won their previous two games and they would be looking forward to continuing with their winning streak against out of form Canterbury in the next match. Also, they have a big chance to consolidate their position in the league table on the back of their players’ impressive performance.
The weather is expected to be clear and perfect for a cricket banter. The wind will blow at 4 km/hr with chances of rain being very slim. Also, the temperature is expected to deviate between 11 and 23 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at the Basin Reserve is expected to offer a great contest between the bat and ball. It will be a 180+ run track as far as the stats of this season are concerned. In all the games played on this ground in Super Smash 2019-20, the sides have managed to post a score of 180+ runs. But, the sides chasing the target have certainly found it difficult in their quest to go past the target. So, the side winning the toss will most probably look to bat first at this venue.
Average first innings score: 183 (In three games played at this venue in Super Smash 2019-20)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 0; Lost – 3; NR- 0
