Teams Preview

Otago Volts Preview

Otago has am experienced batting line-up with the likes of Hamish Rutherford, Nick Kelly, Neil Broom, and Dean Foxcraft with everyone scoring 250+ runs last season to help their team finish at no.2 position in the points table. All-rounders Anaru Kitchen, Jacob Duffy, and Nathan Smith add great depth to their batting line-up.  

Young pacers Jacob Duffy, Nathan Smith, and Michael Rae will lead their bowling attack with the new ball. Anaru Kitchen and Michael Rippon will form the spin combo for the team with Dena Foxcroft expected to give some vital overs in the middle phase.

Jacob Duffy – Duffy will be high on confidence after his recent international debut performance which got him Man of match award. He will look to continue impressing the national selectors with his performance in the super smash league.  

Nick Kelly – Kelly had an amazing season last year scoring 398 runs with 4 fifties to his name. We expect him to continue his good form with the bat in this season too.

Weather Conditions

Alexandra has a bright and sunny weather on the match day with very less to no chances of rain. We expect to have a match with no interruptions from weather.

Venue Details

Molyneux Park is one of the high scoring grounds with batsmen enjoying the upper hand. Teams scored 10+ runs comfortably in the matches played here last season. We can expect another high scoring contest at this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

This is a high scoring venue and both teams will look to chase down the target. Batsmen are confident to chase down any target nowadays and it will put added pressure on the bowling units.  

OV vs AA Winning Prediction

Auckland batting unit looked solid with all their top order batsmen spending good time in the middle. They will look to improve their bowling performances especially in the power play which caused them the match last time. Otago has a good batting and bowling unit with a lot of experienced domestic players in the playing XI. They will lack the experience of playing conditions despite their home ground.   We expect Auckland to win this match.

Auckland will win the match.
