We have just five matches to go in the Super Smash and things are getting pretty tight for the third playoff spot. Northern Districts and Canterbury Kings have already progressed to the next round and the battle now remains between Auckland Aces and Wellington Firebirds to occupy that lone playoff spot.
The next match in the tournament, the match which is to be played between Auckland Aces and Wellington Firebirds, will make things a lot clearer as far as qualification scenarios are concerned. The winner in this match will get ahead in the race for the playoffs and both sides are, therefore, expected to come out hard at each other. A cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards here.
This match is to be played at the Eden Park Cricket Ground, Auckland on January 20th, 2021.
Auckland Aces got off to a reasonably good start to the tournament, but as the competition has moved forward Auckland Aces have lost their sharpness. Their fate is still pretty much in their hands as far as the progression to the next round is concerned, but a loss here might well mean curtains for them.
As it currently stands on the points table, Auckland Aces are placed fourth on the ladder with four wins from eight matches, totaling 16 points. Besides, their net run rate is still pretty low, which could be the eliminating factor for them if they are unable to register a win here in this match.
Auckland Aces have a decent team on paper, but they are really missing an enforcer at the top. The absence of Martin Guptill hasn't really helped their cause. On the bowling front, however, they are a bit too over-reliant on the likes of William Somerville and Lokie Ferguson. They would all of their experienced players to step up their game in this important match and if that happens, Auckland Aces will be well in business.

After having a poor start to the tournament and languishing near the bottom half of the points table, Wellington Firebirds kicked off their campaign in the middle part of the tournament and have not looked back ever since. They are now in prime contention to be the third team to progress for the playoffs and a big win here will be good enough to take them through.
As it currently stands, Wellington Firebirds are placed third on the ladder with four wins and four losses, aggregating to 16 points in total. Besides, they have a net run rate of -0.093, which in fact would be deciding factor if they are unable to register two wins in two matches.
On paper, Wellington Firebirds have a terrific side and that is also one of the reasons that they are defending champions. With T20 specialists available right through, Wellington Firebirds are capable of almost all situations in T20s. If they are able to play to their potential, Auckland Aces will have their work cut out.
