Central Stags vs Otago, Super Smash 2020-21

Central Districts will take on Otago in the 19th match of the Super Smash. The match will be played at the Pukekura Park, New Plymouth and is set to get underway at 4:00 Pm local time.

What a tournament this is turning out for Central Stags. Yes, they’ve lost a couple of games but they’ve been very consistent and very clinical in the tournament.

The credit for the top performance must go to their batsmen who’ve been simply outstanding. George Worker, Will Young, Josh Clarkson, Doug Bracewell have been in top form.
Add to that the experience of Ross Taylor. 

The bowling is also laced with quality bowlers like Doug Bracewell, Blair Tickner, Ajaz Patel, Joey Field. 

Central Stags have played two matches on this ground and have posted 200+ in both the matches thus Otago have a big task on their hands in the next match.

Otago on the other hand are coming back from 2 back to back losses. They do seem to have a very good batting line up but their players have failed to perform collectively. If they’re to get past a strong team like the Stags, all their batsmen need to bat well.

They have plenty of good bowling options with Mitchell McClenaghan, Jacob Duffy, Matthew Bacon, Michael Rippon and all of them have been pretty decent too. Only if they can bat well, they’ll have a very good chance to win the match.

As of now, the kind of form Stags are in, they’re the favourites for the match.

CS vs OTG Toss Prediction

Both captains would like to win the toss and bat first

Pitch Report 

It’s a brilliant wicket to bat on. We expect the match to be a high scoring encounter. The wicket might get slower in the second inning thus batting second will be a difficult task.

Plenty of rain is predicted on the match day.

There has been no official announcement for the Stags squad for the next match. There is no update on the injury to any of the players thus we can assume that they’ll go in with the same squad.

CS Key Players

  • George Worker - George Worker has been terrific and is currently leading second in list of most runs in the tournament. He’s been very consistent and we expect him to continue his good run.
  • Will Younf - Will Young has also played some fine innings in the tournament. He played a scintillating knock of 68 in the last match and can be backed to perform well in the next match.
  • Dough Bracewell - Bracewell has been very good with his all round skills. He batted well for his 37 of 16 in the last match and picked up a 3-fer as well. He’s a very valuable player for the Stags

OTG Team News

Otago have added Nathan Smith in their squad to take on Central Districts in New Plymouth. 

OTG Key Players

  • Neil Broom - Neil Broom is a top class T-20 player. He managed to fetch a 50 in his last match against Wellington. Now since he’s got some runs in Super Smash 2020-21, he can be backed to continue his good run.
  • Nick Kelly - Nick Kelly is another batsmen that Otago heavily relies on. He’s played some good knocks and Otago will need him to fire against the Stags.
  • Mitchell McClenaghan - Mitchell McClenaghan is a top T-20 bowler. He’s the leader of the pack and will have a huge responsibility of restricting the strong Stags batting line up.
