Burger King Super Smash T20 2018The Super Smash T20 is New Zealand’s top notch T20 cricket competition that is played every year and has been known by a variety of names due to sponsorship reasons.

The complete Super Smash 2018-19 schedule is placed here. The Burger King Super Smash 2018-19 will be broadcast live on Sky Sports NZ in New Zealand and Star Sports in India.

New Zealand’s state t20 tournament started in 2005 and since then, it’s been known as the New Zealand Twenty20 Competition, State Twenty20, HRV Cup Twenty20 and the Georgie Pie Super Smash for three seasons before the last two name-changes. A total of six city-based sides from New Zealand take part in this T20 competition and Canterbury Knights will start the new season of the tournament as the defending champions.

The Super Smash T20 squads for the forthcoming edition of this competition is updated below.

The Auckland Aces have won the Super Smash T20 league on four separate occasions, making them the most successful side of the competition over the years, while Otago Volts, Central Stags, Wellington Birds and the Knights have all won the title twice. The other team to take part in the Super Smash T20 is Canterbury Kings who were the winners of the first ever season way back in 2005-06 but since then have twice been runner-up.

All six teams in the tournament play in a two-leg, home and away league stage format and at the end of these two rounds, the top three teams qualify for the playoffs. The top-ranked side enters the final automatically while the teams placed second and third play in a Preliminary or Elimination Final to decide the other finalist.

What Happened in the 2017-18 Super Smash?

The tournament was played in December-January last season and the Northern Knights topped the points table with 30 points from 10 games. The Auckland Aces and Central Stags had a keen tussle between each other throughout the season before finishing second and third and qualifying for the Elimination Final.

The Stags batted first and posted 163/6 from their 20 overs before bowling Auckland out for 127 in that knock-out game to enter the final. However, the Northern Knights proved to be too strong for them in the final, restricting them to a mere 99 and chasing it off in a mere 8.5 overs to win the title.

What Happened in Previous Super Smash Tournaments?

Canterbury Wizards won the first ever New Zealand T20 tournament in 2005-06, but rather surprisingly haven’t won anything after that despite having made the final on two other occasions. Auckland, with four wins, have the best record among the teams while all other sides, Central Stags, Knights, Otago Volts and Wellington Firebirds have won two titles apiece.

More information on the Super Smash T20 Live Streaming & TV options, and its schedule for the 2018-19 season, will be updated at a later date once there’s more clarity on the same.
