Martin Guptill: The team that was supposed to hit the scoreboard by running fast collapsed to the blow of the bowlers. The team did not even play the full 20 overs.
New Zealand Cricket: It is important to play fast in the T20 format. There will be a lot of need to run the scoreboard while running fast. However some are losing wickets at the same pace and are responsible for limiting the team score to a low. But recently a team collapsed like a deck of cards. Not surprisingly, the team situation with stars like Martin Guptill was made like this. This scene was seen in the New Zealand Cricket League Super Smash. Here the two teams are facing each other. This scene appeared during a match between Auckland and the Northern Districts.
Auckland batted first in this match. Martin Guptill stood in the opening ring. Guptill’s job is to give the team a good start. But, Guptill also made his way to the pavilion as soon as two wickets fell. Guptill scored just 4 off 13 balls in the match against T20I. It should come as no surprise that there are 9 batsmen who have not even scored a double in this match. Everyone seemed to be leaving the field in single digits. The entire team played 17.2 overs and was all out for 92 runs. That means he could not even play the full 20 overs.
7th and 10th batsmen with consistency.
Anurag Verma and Frederick Walker Chero took 3 wickets each for the Northern District. Ish Sodhi, on the other hand, took 2 wickets for 5 runs in 2 overs. We know you wonder how the Auckland team got to 92 runs. With all the top order batsmen failing and the team’s No. 7 and No. 10 batsmen adding runs, the task seemed easy. 7th-ranked Locky Ferguson scored 26 while 10th-ranked batsman Benjamin Lister scored 17.
Target incision in 15.1 overs.
Northern District had an easy target of 93 runs ahead. The target was easily achieved by losing 4 wickets in the 16th over. The match was won by 6 wickets with 29 balls to spare. Wicketkeeper-batsman Tim Seifert played 38 not out off 42 balls for the Northern District. The most successful bowler for Auckland was Sean Solia who scored 16 runs in 3 overs and took 2 wickets.
This is the second victory for the Northern Districts in 4 matches in the Super Smash League. At the same time, it was the second defeat for Auckland in the 2 matches played so far.
