ov vs nk Match Prediction & Analysis

Super Smash League has come to an end with the last 2 league games remaining. Northern knights and Otago face off in their last league match of the season. Northern Knights have an outside chance of qualify if they manage to win the match and pip Central Districts in NRR. But, for that Central Districts need to lose their last league game against Canterbury. Otago are already out of contention and will look to finish the season on a high with a win in their last encounter.

Teams Preview

Otago Volts Preview

Otago were bowled out for a paltry 80 runs in the last game. Nick Kelly top scored with 38 runs while all the remaining players ended with single digit scores. Their batting line-up is very inconsistent with only Neil Broom crossing the 200-run mark so far. Their batting order must score 160+ runs to put pressure on the opposition.

McCleanagan and M Rippon leads the bowling attack with 11 & 10 wickets respectively in this so far.  Mathew Bacon and Nathan Smith have chipped in with crucial wickets but have leaked runs at over 9.5 RPO. Jacob Duffy and Anaru kitchen have failed to take wickets consistently so far.

Top players to bet on:

Neil Broom – Broom has scored 245 runs at a strike rate of 137 with 2 fifties to his name. He will look to finish the season with a big score to his name in this match.

Michael Rippon – Chinaman bowler Rippon has took 10 wickets at an economy rate of just 7 RPO so far. He is the most economical bowler for the team and only behind McCleangahan in wickets tally.  

Otago Volts Predicted Playing XI:

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

Northern Knights Preview

Ice-cool Kane Williamson lead the team in the thrilling chase last night with unbeaten 79 runs to win the match in the last ball. Tim Southee scored a crucial 24 runs with the remaining top-6 players failed to put a good score on board. Tim Seifert, Anton Devcich, and De GrandHomme must step up with the bat in this match.

Their bowling unit will be led by the experienced duo of Trent Boult and Tim Southee with the Scott Kuggleijn and Anurag Verma forming a four-prolonged pace attack. They have a quality spin attack with the likes of Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner in the playing XI. They have five bowlers including De GrandHomme who represent the national team on a regular basis.  

Top players to bet on:

Kane Williamson – Williamson single handedly took his eta to victory with a 55-ball 79 runs in the last game.  He will look to continue his purple patch with the bat in this match too.

Tim Southee – Southee put on an all-round show with bowling figures of 4-0-28-2 & scored a vital 24 runs of 15 balls in crucial junctures of the match. He will look to help his team win with all his experience in this match.

Weather Conditions

Dunedin is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with very less to no chances of weather interruptions as per weather forecasters.

Venue Details

Dunedin is a good batting track with true bounce and pace on offer. We saw teams score over 200+ runs at this venue this season. We expect the scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Otago has won the toss and lost both the matches played here so captains will prefer losing the toss here (LOL).We expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss on this placid track.    

OV vs NK Winning Prediction

Northern Knights has a strong batting and bowling line-up when compared to Otago in terms of experience, performance and firepower on the paper. They also have momentum and winning streak on their side while Otago are struggling to put on good performance and has lost all their last 6 matches. Northern Knights will look to give their best to put them in best position to qualify while Otago will look to end their losing streak in this season itself. We expect Northern Knights to win this match.

Northern Knights will win the match
