The Georgie Pie Super Smash is New Zealand’s domestic Twenty20 tournament, bringing together the best club sides in the country for a feast of the shortest form of the game.
There are six teams – each side will play each other twice before the top four move into the semi-finals, first playing fourth and second playing third. The winner of the grand final earns the right to feature at next year’s Champions League T20.
