Catch the big hitting action this summer at the Basin

Super Smash cricket comes alive with an action-packed schedule

Cricket at the Basin

Catch your very own Wellington Firebirds and Blaze as they look to orchestrate more Super Smash success against their domestic rivals this summer.

Super Smash cricket is fast becoming New Zealand's most popular form of the game and with plenty of international star power on show, the banks at the basin will be brimming with excitement.

The historic Basin Reserve will host seven matches including a highly anticipated free Christmas Eve double-header event against the men and women from Auckland. 


Wellington Firebirds and Blaze

Who are the Wellington Blaze?

The Wellington Blaze have been the most dominant Women's domestic T20 side ever since the competition's inception in 2008. With international players littered through the team, the Blaze will be looking to add a 7th title to their already impressive trophy cabinet. After agonisingly falling short in the 2020/21 final against the Canterbury Magicians, the Blaze will be out for revenge as they take to the field in the latter stages of 2021.

Who are the Wellington Firebirds?

The Firebirds are Wellington's men's domestic cricketing team and they will be on the hunt for a third straight domestic title this season. With firepower all throughout the side, the Firebirds will back themselves to get the job done again with 7 Black Caps at their disposal.
