Teams Preview

Otago Volts Preview

Otago`s top-order started the match in aggressive fashion with the openers Hamish Rutherford (25 runs) and Neil Broom (30 runs) scoring at nearly 200+ strike rate to score 70-odd runs in powerplay. Llew Johnson (72 runs) then build on the platform with the help of Nick Kelly (27 runs) and Mitch Renwick (42 runs) to take their score to a massive 219 runs.   

Their bowling unit with the help of 3 crucial run-outs bundled out the opposition for just 174 runs. Mathew Bacon and Anaru Kitchen were phenomenal with the ball claiming 4 wickets between them and giving runs at less than 6 RPO. Michael Rippon, Mitchell McCleanaghan and Jacob Duffy chipped in with a wicket each but were taken for a lot of runs.

Top players to bet on:

Llew Johnson – Johnson brought him power game to the fore after their superb start by smashing 7 sixes in his 72-run knock. He scored runs at massive strike rate of 165 in this match.

Mathew Bacon – Bacon had superb bowling figures of 3.5-0-18-3 in the match when most of the bowlers were going for runs at over 10 RPO. He will look to continue his dominant bowling performance in this match too.

Hamish Rutherford, Mitch Renwick (wk), Nick Kelly, Neil Broom, Dale Phillips, Llew Johnson, Anaru Kitchen, Michael Rippon, Matthew Bacon, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jacob Duffy (c)

Jack Boyle and Chad Bowes are expected to open the batting for the Canterbury team with the likes of Cole McConchie, Cam Fletcher, Sean Davey, and Leo Carter expected to slot in in the middle order. Henry Nicholls, Tom Latham, and Kyle Jamieson will not be available due to national commitments.

Pacers Matt Henry, Ed Nuttall, and Will Willaims will form a strong core of the fast bowling department. Todd Astle will be their no. 1 spinner in the playing XI with the Mathew Hay being the second spinner in the squad. Chad Bowes and Cole McConchie will support the bowling attack as all-rounders in the playing XI.

Top players to bet on:

Chad Bowes – Bowes had an excellent last season scoring 358 runs at a strike rate of nearly 170.  He will look to continue his brilliant performances with the bat and catch the eye of national selectors.

Todd Astle – Astle is finding it difficult to break into the playing of Kiwi team despite featuring in the squad predominantly. He will look to prove himself with some excellent showing with the ball in this super smash league.

Cole McConchie, Cam Fletcher, Sean Davey, Leo Carter, Jack Boyle, Chad Bowes, Matt Henry, Ed Nuttall, Will Willaims, Todd Astle, Mathew Hay

Weather Conditions

Alexandra has a bright and sunny weather on the match day with no chances of rain. We will have a full match with no interruptions from weather.

Venue Details

Molyneux Park is one of the high scoring grounds and Otago scored a grand total of 219 runs in their last game played here this season. We expect yet another high scoring contest at this venue with the pitch helping very little to the bowlers.

Toss: To Bat

Pitch will be best for batting early in the match and might slow down a little as the match progresses due to back-to-back matches in 2 days. Both captains will look to take advantage of the favorable conditions early on.  

OV vs CK Winning Prediction

Otago`s batting unit raced away in the last game right from the start with runs coming thick and fast in all phases of the game. Their ability to score runs despite the fall of wickets will be big pressure on the opposition bowlers. Canterbury has a good team on paper but they are yet to play a game this season. We expect them to come out all guns blazing in this match but the experience of playing prior match and good winning record at this venue will make Otago the favorites the win this match.

Otago will win their second match on a row
