Betting Tips
  • We are backing Colin de Grandhomme to be Northern Brave’s highest run scorer in this game. The big hitting international has plenty of experience across many global T20 leagues. With the ball, spinner Frederick Walker ended last season’s tournament with 5 wickets in his final two games. He is our pick for Northern Brave’s top wicket taker against Otago Volts.
  • Hamish Rutherford was Otago Volts’ standout batter in their opening match. He hit 11 boundaries and is a strong choice for Otago Volts’ highest run scorer against Northern Brave. Matthew Bacon took the most wickets and had the best economy rate of all the Volts bowlers on Sunday. He is our tip for Otago Volts’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • There are plenty of players who could step up and make a name for themselves in this match. However, we are predicting Colin de Grandhomme to take the Player of The Match Award.

Northern Knights vs Otago T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2021

The third match of this season’s Men’s Super Smash tournament brings Northern Brave and Otago Volts together at Seddon Park, Hamilton. Northern Brave finished last season in 4th place after recording five wins and five defeats. Otago Volts finished bottom and have already lost their opening game of this campaign. Read on as we preview this opening fixture. The match begins at 18:40 local time.

Northern Brave have rebranded from Northern Knights but will be looking to continue their strong form from last season. They have a team who can worry every side in the tournament.

Otago Volts continue to struggle in this format. They did put in a good performance against Central Districts last weekend and will be looking to match that to be competitive in this clash.

NK vs OTG Prediction

Northern Knights Team News & Playing 11

NK Team News

Northern Brave missed out on the knockout stage of the tournament by four points but ended the season in excellent form. They will be without some of their best players who are on international duty but have a squad more than capable of holding their own in this match.

NK Key Players

  • Jeet Raval - The opener has been capped 24 times at Test level and is generally considered to be a long format player. However, he is more than capable of applying himself in this short form.
  • Colin de Grandhomme - The international all-rounder captains the side and is a big presence on and off the field. He has over 100 international caps.
  • Frederick Walker - The slow left-arm spinner ended the 2020-21 Super Smash with figures of 2-20 and 3-20 

NK Team Form

Northern Brave won their final four games in last season’s tournament and will be keen to pick up where they left off.

Northern Knights Predicted Playing 11

Jeet Raval, Bharat Popli, Colin de Grandhomme (c), Joe Carter, Kristian Clarke, Joe Walker, Peter Bocock (wk), Scott Kuggeleijn, Frederick Walker, Brett Randell, Anurag Verma

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OTG Team News

The Volts should be in a good position to compete in this game after they were blown away by keeper-batter Dane Cleaver’s impressive 114 not-out from 54 balls on Sunday. All of Otago’s players contributed with the bat and we expect them to keep the same XI in this fixture.

OTG Key Players

  • Hamish Rutherford - The former international impressed on Sunday with 82 from 47 balls at the top of the order against Central Stags in Super Smash 2021.
  • Anaru Kitchen - The all-rounder put in a strong performance against Central Stags. He took 1-33 and contributed 25 from 14 balls.
  • Matthew Bacon - The medium pacer was the pick of Otago Volts’ bowlers on Sunday. He took 2-27 with an economy rate of 6.75.

OTG Team Form

The Volts lost eight games during last season’s Super Smash and have already got this campaign off to a losing start.

Otago Volts gave their supporters some encouragement with their performance against Central Districts on Sunday and they may well pick up more wins than last season. However, we expect Northern Brave to be too strong in this match and are predicting a Brave victory.

NK vs OTG Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Max Chu (8.5) will be our wicket-keeper. The keeper had a quiet day in the opening match but should get an opportunity to bat in this game.

  • Batsmen

    Hamish Rutherford (9.5), Neil Broom (9.5) and Jeet Raval (9.0) are our batters. Rutherford’s innings deserved to be on the winning side on the weekend.

  • All-rounders

    Anaru Kitchen (9), Josh Finnie (8)and Colin de Grandhomme (9.5) will be our all-rounders. de Grandhomme is excellent at long form cricket but a specialist short format player 

  • Bowlers

    Matthew Bacon (9), Scott Kuggeleijn (9), Brett Randell (9.0) and Frederick Walker (8.0) are our bowlers. Bacon caught the eye with his accuracy on Sunday.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Colin de Grandhomme will be captain, Hamish Rutherford his deputy

NK vs OTG Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Hamish Rutherford (vc), Neil Broom, Jeet Raval

  • All Rounder:Josh Finnie, Arnaru Kitchen, Colin de Grandhomme (c)
