Betting Tips
  • Big-hitting opener Glenn Phillips is a fantastic T20 batter. He is our pick for Auckland Aces’ highest run scorer in this match. Lockie Ferguson has picked up 10 wickets in the competition so far and is well worth backing as Auckland Aces top wicket taker against Otago Volts.
  • Captain Hamish Rutherford is the leading run scorer for Otago Volts in this campaign and is a strong choice to be the highest run scorer for the Volts against Auckland Aces. With the ball, Anaru Kitchen has kept things tight this season and is due a glut of wickets. He is our tip for Otago Volts’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We are predicting Glenn Phillips to make some big runs in this game and we are backing him to take the Player of the Match Award.

Auckland Aces ended their winning run in their last match but they should have more than enough quality to win this game against Otago Volts.

Otago Volts have been the worst team in the 2021-22 Super Smash by quite a distance. They were thrashed by Wellington Firebirds in their last game and need to up their performance if they are to be competitive.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AUK Team News

Although they were on the wrong end of the scoreline against Canterbury Kings last Friday, we expect Auckland Aces to put out the same XI in this game. They have been in strong form in other white ball cricket this week and have no injury worries to contend with.

AUK Key Players

  • Glenn Phillips - The opening batter has plenty of experience in T20 leagues across the globe and is also a spectacular fielder.
  • Lockie Ferguson - The New Zealand international bowler took 6-34 in a Ford Trophy game earlier this week and is in excellent form in the Super Smash 2021-22.
  • Robert O’Donnell - The captain and middle-order batter is a very reliable source of runs. He hit 95 in the Fort Trophy against Northern Districts on Wednesday

AUK Team Form

Auckland Aces were beaten by Canterbury Kings in their last match to end a three-game winning streak

Auckland Aces Predicted Playing 11

George Worker, Glenn Phillips, Sean Solia, Graeme Beghin, Robert O’Donnell (c), Ben Horne (wk), Cole Briggs, William Somerville, Lockie Ferguson, Adithya Ashok, Ben Lister.

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OTG Team News

Beckham Wheeler-Greenall made his Super Smash debut earlier in the tournament and it could well be that the Volts give more responsibility to their younger players in this and other games. We expect to see an unchanged XI for the Volts for this fixture.

OTG Key Players

  • Hamish Rutherford - The experienced captain has a top score of 82 in the tournament and needs 2 more runs to reach 200 runs in this season’s competition.
  • Anaru Kitchen - The slow left arm bowler has picked up 7 wickets in this year’s Super Smash and is also a very handy batter.
  • Beckham Wheeler-Greenall - The 19 year old batter has finished not-out and taken a wicket in both of his appearances in the Super Smash.

OTG Team Form

The Volts have won only one match in the Super Smash this season and are cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

Otago Volts Predicted Playing 11

Hamish Rutherford (c), Josh Tasman-Jones, Neil Broom, Nick Kelly, Llew Johnson, Anaru Kitchen, Beckham Wheeler-Greenall, Max Chu (wk), Angus McKenzie, Jacob Duffy, Matthew Bacon
