Match Preview

The 15th match of Super Smash 2019-20 pits a formidable Otago Volts facing Canterbury Kings in an attempt to stay supreme in the points table.

Volts, led by Jacob Duffy, won the recent outing against Northern Knights by a margin of 6-wickets and so far have won 3 out of 5 matches along with a loss and a no result. They have some of the fiercest players in both batting and bowling lineups capable of winning the game from crunch moments.

Meanwhile, Canterbury Kings who have found their winning combination would focus on putting up a stellar show at Molyneux Park. The Cole McConchie-captained unit defeated Central Stags in the lately concluded match and tasted their first win of the season. Banking on the stellar performances of their bowlers, the Kings would look to thwart the chances of Volts’ triumph and scale higher in the points table.

Teams Preview

Otago Volts Preview

Neil Broom (234 runs in 5 innings) is currently the leading run-getter in the ongoing edition of Super Smash. Broom scored 31-ball 36 in the recent match against Northern Knights and with fellow opener, Hamish Rutherford (121 runs in 5 innings) would look to put up a stellar display in the first few overs. The duo of Nick Kelly (195 runs in 5 innings) and Dean Foxcroft (123 runs in 5 innings) have had successful runs in the matches played so far and their presence in the middle-order solidifies the chances of Volts’ victory in the upcoming duel.

Bowling wise, Nathan Smith (9 wickets in 5 innings) has been highly effective with his pace prowess. Skipper Jacob Duffy (2/32) and spinner Michael Rippon (2/29) raked impressionable figures in the lately finished match and would be wishing to replicate their performance at Molyneux Park.

Otago Volts Predicted Playing XI:

Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Nick Kelly, Dean Foxcroft, Anaru Kitchen, Josh Finnie, Michael Rippon, Nathan G Smith, Jacob Duffy (c), Max Chu (wk), Michael Rae

Canterbury Kings Preview

The top-order trio of Bowes, Boyle, and Murdoch hasn’t fired to the expectations and it is about time they perform to their potential. Cole McConchie (28) and Andrew Ellis (35*) were the leading run-getters in the previous match against Central Stags and would be backing themselves to put up a similar show in case any top-order collapse occurs at Alexandra. Henry Shipley (11-ball 23) played a destructive in the lately finished match against Stags and could be vouched to go berserk if needed in the coming feud.

Among the bowlers, spinner Blake Coburn (4/17) and pacer Andrew Ellis (2/30) garnered impressive figures in the previous game and with skipper Cole McConchie would look to restrict the rivals to a petty total.

Canterbury Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Andrew Ellis, Chad Bowes, Cam Fletcher (wk), Ed Nuttall, Leo Carter, Cole McConchie (c), Stephen Murdoch, Will Williams, Henry Shipley, Jack Boyle, Blake Coburn

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

Clouds will surround the stadium in the first half of the play while no chances of rain are being depicted. Although the first innings total at this venue is 160, the present conditions predict 170 as a par total for the coming contest.

Venue Details

With the skies being clear as the game progresses, one would expect the batters to dominate the gameplay in the second innings. Scores as high as 200 have been chased at this venue and thus, one would want to face the ball in the latter innings of the game.

Toss: To Bowl

The toss winning team is likely to bowl first in order to capitalize on the overcast conditions. Although the wicket has been of great interest to the batters, the first half of the play could be expected to wind up in the bowlers’ favor.

Winning Prediction

Otago Volts have been one of the strongest sides in the T20s played so far and with their consistent onslaughts since the commencement of the season, the odds are likely to favor the Volts in the coming contest. The Jacob Duffy-led side has played an aggressive brand of cricket with both batting and bowling units clicking at the required intervals.

While Canterbury Kings boast of a competent bowling attack in the form of Cole McConhie, Blake Coburn, and Andrew Ellis, they lack significantly in their big-hitting prowess with the top-order failing to make an impact this edition of Super Smash.
