The Final of the Super Smash 2019-20 will be played between Wellington and Auckland at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.

After finishing at the top of the Super Smash 2019-20 points table after the league stage, Wellington got a free pass to the finals. Auckland, on the other hand, competed against Otago in the Elimination Final, which they won by three wickets.

Spinner William Somerville was Auckland's standout bowler, with all-rounder Mark Chapman also chipping in with figures of 4/32. The team succeeded in restricting Otago to 174 which was still quite a decent total.

However, a 31-ball 43 from skipper Martin Guptill put their chase on track. Contributions from Glenn Phillips, Robert O'donnell and Ronnie Hira then took them to victory on the penultimate ball of the match.

Wellington and Auckland last met in the second last game of the league stage, in which the latter came out victorious by 6 wickets. In that game, Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra and skipper Michael Bracewell were their top scorers while Hamish Bennett was Auckland's most impressive bowler. Kyle Jamieson, Mark Chapman and Craig Cachopa starred for Auckland in the six-wicket win.

Devon Conway, Michael Pollard, Tom Blundell and Michael Bracewell would be Wellington's leading batsmen while the wicket-taking onus would be on Ollie Newton and Hamish Bennett.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Auckland Aces - Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Craig Cachopa, Mark Chapman, Robert ODonnell, Ben Horne, Ronnie Hira, William Somerville, Mitchell McClenaghan, Kyle Jamieson

Wellington Firebirds - Devon Conway, Michael Pollard, Rachin Ravindra, Tom Blundell, Michael Bracewell, Fraser Colson, Jamie Gibson, Peter Younghusband, Logan van Beek, Ollie Newton, Hamish Bennett, Ian McPeake
