We are covering\u00a0WEL vs CTB\u00a0Dream 11\u00a0team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for Super Smash T20 match. The match is to be played at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch.\r\n\r\nThis will be the final round of the group matches in the Super Smash T20 competition. All the six teams have played nine matches and only the top three will go ahead after this game. Both the teams playing here have already been ruled out of the race.\r\n\r\nWellington Firebirds lost their crucial encounter against Central Stags in the last week. The defeat resulted in Wellington being unable to catch up with the top three teams. Rachin Ravindra, Logan Van Beek and Jeetan Patel had bowled well to keep the Stags down to 161\/7. However, apart from Conway (39) and Woodcock (63) no one else showed up. Firebirds conceded an 11-run defeat.\r\n\r\nCanterbury\u2019s streak of six losses had already ended the chances of their progression but the win against Otago would have consoled them. Stephen Murdoch\u2019s 64 from 38 balls and Bowes\u2019 40 at the top heled the side get to 172\/4. Kyle Jamieson\u2019s four-wicket haul and Nuttall\u2019s 2\/9 paved way for Canterbury\u2019s 30-run win.\r\n\r\nWhile the teams will be playing be pride here, there is a chance for Canterbury to avoid the last place with a win here.
