OTG vs AKL Betting Tips

  • Although he has had a poor start to the tournament, Hamish Rutherford has plenty of years of experience to fall back on. He is well worth backing as Otago Volts’ highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Ben Lockrose has picked up wickets in both of the last two matches and she is our tip for Otago Volts’ top wicket taker against Auckland Aces.
  • Mark Chapman has played 48 internationals and averages 52.40 in ODIs. He has passed 50 in 18 T20 games and he is our pick for Auckland Aces’ highest run scorer in this match. Lockie Ferguson has 140 T20 wickets and the right-arm fast bowler is a strong choice for Auckland Aces’ top wicket taker against Otago Volts.
  • Although he got a duck in his first appearance in the tournament, we recommend backing opener Max O’Dowd to hit the most sixes in this game.

OV vs AA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2022

Otago Volts and Auckland Aces go head to head in Match 6 of the 2022-23 Super Smash on Thursday afternoon at the Sir John Davies Oval. This is the Volts’ second game at this venue in 24 hours with the team still looking for their first victory. Auckland Aces beat Canterbury Kings in their opening match. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway at 14:40 local time in Queenstown.

Otago Volts have struggled in this tournament over the last few seasons and have not looked likely to challenge at the top end this season. This will be a very tough contest for the hosts.

Auckland Aces will be very confident as they arrive in Queenstown for this match. They have a team full of quality players at this level and should be too strong for Otago Volts.

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OV Team News

Thorn Parkes came into the team as an opener and took the wicket-keeping gloves in Wednesday’s defeat against Northern Brave. This gave Hamish Rutherford the opportunity to focus on his captaincy and batting. We expect the Volts to be unchanged in this match.

OV Key Players

  • Hamish Rutherford - The captain has begun this campaign with two single-figure scores and will be keen to contribute in this match. He hit 76 not-out in a one-day game earlier this month.
  • Michael Rippon - The New Zealand international all-rounder looked comfortable batting on this pitch on Wednesday hitting 40 runs from 44 balls.
  • Ben Lockrose - The slow left-arm bowler contributed with bat and ball in the last game. He opened the bowling and picked up the wicket of Katene Clarke.

OV Team Form

Otago Volts are yet to get their first win of this campaign and picked up only one victory across the entirety of the 2021-22 season.

Auckland Aces Team News & Playing 11

AA Team News

It was an excellent team display for Auckland Aces to get their season underway on Boxing Day. With no new injuries or player unavailability reported from the team management, we expect to see Auckland Aces line-up with the same XI in this game. 

AA Key Players

  • Mark Chapman - The New Zealand international is a strong player across all formats and has a top score of 101 in T20 cricket. Although he is in the team for his batting, he picked up two wickets in the first game.
  • Benjamin Lister - The left-arm medium pacer got full value for his accurate bowling on Monday. He dismissed Henry Shipley, Angus McKenzie and Todd Astle.
  • Lockie Ferguson - The pace bowler did not pick up any wickets in the opening match but still troubled the Canterbury Magicians batters. He will be very hard to face again in this match.

AA Team Form

Auckland Aces lost three successive matches at the end of the 2021-22 Super Smash but got off to a winning start in Super Smash 2022-23.

Auckland Aces Predicted Playing 11

George Worker, Max O’Dowd, Mark Chapman, Cole Briggs, William O’Dponnell (c), Sean Solia, Ben Horne (wk), Louis Delport, Adithya Ashok, Lockie Ferguson, Benjamin Lister

Who will win Otago Volts vs Auckland Aces T20 Match?

Otago Volts were poor with both bat and ball against Northern Brave. Although their batting will probably improve in this fixture, we think their bowlers will be exposed against Auckland’s batters in this match.

OV vs AA Top Team Batsmen

Dean Foxcroft, Hamish Rutherford and Michael Rippon are our recommendations for Otago Volts’s top batters. Foxcroft and Rutherford have the joint top odds with the bookmakers and both are talented players. Rippon top scored for Otago Volts and hit two boundaries in the last game.

We have selected George Worker, Mark Chapman and Max O’Dowd with the bat for Auckland Aces. Worker is the favourite to hit the most runs with the bookies and has a T20 century to his name. O’Dowd got a golden duck against Canterbury but has a top T20 score of 133 not out.

OV vs ND Top Team Bowlers

Matthew Bacon, Jacob Duffy and Ben Lockrose are our bowling picks for Otago Volts. Bacon has the top odds with the bookies and was very economical in Wednesday’s fixture. Duffy took 1-36 in the defeat to Wellington Blaze and is one wicket away from 100 T20 dismissals.

With the ball, we are backing Lockie Ferguson, Ben Lister and Adithya Ashok for Auckland Aces. Ferguson is the clear favourite to pick up the most wickets with the bookmakers and comes into this game with an excellent reputation. Lister took 11 wickets at an average of 22.00 in last year’s campaign.

🏆 Otago Volts vs Auckland Aces Prediction

This should be a good contest with Otago Volts keen to bounce back from their defeat at the same venue in front of their home fans on Wednesday. We expect Auckland Aces to have the upper-hand with both bat and ball and to leave Queenstown with the victory.
