The Canterbury Kings (CTB) will be up against the Wellington Firebirds (WF) in the opening match of the Super Smash T20 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Friday.

New Zealand's domestic T20 competition is all set to commence with a match between last season's two finalists. The Wellington Firebirds, who beat the Canterbury Kings by five wickets in the summit clash, will be hoping to lift the prestigious Super Smash T20 trophy for the third consecutive time. Canterbury Kings, meanwhile, will be eager to take revenge as the domestic T20 title was the only one they missed out on last summer, clinching the Ford Trophy and Plunket Shield.
