Friday the 13th will be lucky for some as Dream 11 Super Smash begins for the 2019/20 holiday summer.

With two new co-captains, the Central Hinds will be the first team in action tomorrow morning in Lincoln, Canterbury, while defending men’s national champions the Central Stags prepare for a big night out under lights at McLean Park, Napier in a star-studded rematch of last summer’s successful Grand Final.

McLean Park will be free admission to celebrate the Stags’ trophy win, but coach Aldin Smith says the squad is well aware it’s a whole new ball game starting afresh against a strong Knights squad.

The match will be studded with white-ball BLACKCAPS on both sides including Knights Ish Sodhi, Daryl Mitchell, Anton Devcich, Scott Kuggeleijn and Tim Seifert while the Stags will have wily Seth Rance opening the attack, star spinner Ajaz Patel, master blaster captain Tom Bruce, left-armer Ben Wheeler and the aggressive opening hitting power of George Worker looking to continue the Stags success story.

After a slew of preseason injuries, the Stags remain without the services of BLACKCAP Blair Tickner who has not fully recovered from a strained lat muscle sustained in The Ford Trophy.

Hawke’s Bay spinner Jayden Lennox and Taranaki allrounder Ryan Watson - both of whom have made their Central Stags debuts in The Ford Trophy this season - have been named in a Dream 11 Super Smash squad for the first time.

Gates will be open at McLean Park from 6PM with the match televised live on SKY Sport and broadcast on Radio Sport.

With plenty of family entertainment, prize draws, new gourmet food and beverage options at McLean Park and free admission for this Friday night under lights to celebrate the Stags’ 2019 title, the Hawke’s Bay public is encouraged to head down early and enjoy the build-up to a massive home game for their team.

In Lincoln, admission will also be free as the Central Hinds begin their T20 season with the centralised round that features all six teams in action in Canterbury.

There are no surprises in a settled 13-strong squad which assembles in Lincoln today.

Hannah Rowe and Jess Watkin lead the team for the first time tomorrow against the Magicians after having been named T20 co-captains earlier this year.
