ck vs ov Match Prediction & Analysis

Canterbury Kings would be taking on the Otago Volts at their home ground in the 25th game of the Super Smash 2020-21. Both the sides have played poorly in the last few games. While the Kings are coming into this game after a big loss against the Wellington Firebirds the Volts also went down against the same opposition in the last game in what as their fourth consecutive defeat in the season.  

The Canterbury Kings have played poorly in the last two games and they would look to overcome their poor show. They have won three out of the four games they have played at this venue during the season and this will give them lot of confidence. The Volts seem to be low on self-belief at the moment and it would require a big-hearted effort from the side to win this game.

Teams Preview

Canterbury Kings Preview

Cole McConchie’s side comes here with two consecutive defeats and they have dropped to the third place on the points table. They batted poorly in the middle during the last game against the Wellington Firebirds to go down by 7 wickets. McConchie would like to win this one as this would ensure them of a place in the elimination round. 

The side would be happy to see its openers Chad Bowes and Ken McClure back in form as both these players had struggled since the start if the season. In the middle order McConchie, Jack Boyle and Darryl Mitchell have failed in the last two games and they will have to contribute for the side to win this game. Cam Fletcher, Todd Astle and Leo Carter have good abilities with the bat down the order and this increases the side’s confidence. 

Matt Henry and McConchie did well with the new ball in the last game and the same would be expected of them here. The likes of Astle, Mitchell and Ed Nuttall have leaked runs in the last few games and they would have to focus on improving their line in this game. Will Williams has been all over the place with ball and needs to focus on bowling tighter spells.

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Cole McConchie (c), Chad Bowes, Ken McClure, Jack Boyle, Daryl Mitchell, Leo Carter, Cam Fletcher (wk), Todd Astle, Matt Henry, Will Williams, Ed Nuttall

Otago Volts Preview

Jacob Duffy’s team is struggling at the moment and they have lost almost all hopes of making it to the elimination round. They have lost the last four games and went down to the Wellington Firebirds in the last game by 4 wickets. The batting line-up is struggling to find form. Duffy would want his players to show character having already lost to Kings by a big margin. 

The batting line-up will have to show consistency which they have lacked in the last few games. Hamish Rutherford and Neil Broom have done well opening the batting but rest of the batting has struggled. They will have to provide a positive start here. Josh Finnie, Nick Kelly and Dale Phillips need to make their contributions in the middle order and set up a platform for Anaru Kitchen and Michael Rippon to launch their attack towards the end. 

It was a poor effort from their bowlers in the last game and most of their bowlers have struggled throughout the season. Mitchell McClenaghan and Nathan Smith will have to pick early wickets and bowl tight lines in this game. Rippon looked good in the last game and he will have an important role to play in the middle overs alongside Finnie, Duffy and Anaru Kitchen.

Otago Volts Predicted Playing XI:

Jacob Duffy (c), Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Nick Kelly, Josh Finnie, Dale Phillips, Anaru Kitchen, Michael Rippon, Nathan Smith, Mitchell McClenaghan, Max Chu (wk)

Weather Conditions

The skies would be clear over Christchurch on January 30 and it would be excellent conditions for a game of T20 cricket. The ball is hitting the bat hard and allowing batsmen to play their strokes freely. The side batting first in this game should aim at a score of 180 runs to feel comfortable here.

Venue Details

One of the flattest tracks with a fast outfield Hagley Oval, Christchurch is a paradise for the batsmen and we have seen plenty of runs being scored here. Fast bowlers have done well while pitching the ball up but this is a very tough venue for the spinners as there is hardly any assistance for them on this surface.

Toss: To Bat

The track here has looked a good one to bat on in the earlier games played and we have seen teams put up big scores on the board which have also been chased down successfully. Hence, the side that wins the toss in this game shouldn’t have much of doubt in their mind on batting first.

CK vs OV Winning Prediction

Poor form has extended longer than Otago Volts would have expected. They nearly are out of the contention for the next round and shall have to play for their pride. Their batsmen will have to deliver here for the side to win. Canterbury Kings have done well at their home ground and look in better frame of mind and this would make them favorites in this game.
