OTG vs NK Betting Tips

  • Jake Gibson has hit 171 runs from his last two Super Smash innings and the opener is well worth backing as Otago Volts’ highest run scorer against Northern Brave. With the ball, Matthew Bacon is one of only two players to have taken a five-wicket haul in the competition. The bowler is our pick for Otago Volts’ top wicket taker on Thursday.
  • Jeet Raval struck 49 runs from 35 balls in Friday’s win over Central Stags and the skipper is our tip for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer in this knockout game. Scott Kuggeleijn took 3-14 in the last match and we expect the quick bowler to be Northern Brave’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • There is no other player in the tournament who is scoring the runs which Jake Gibson is at the moment. We recommend backing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this Elimination Final.

OV vs ND T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2023

The Elimination Final of the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Otago Volts and Northern Brave go head to head at the University of Otago Oval on Thursday morning. The Volts finished in second place in the group stage, although they were level on points with top of the table Canterbury Kings. Northern Brave finished two points behind in third. Read on as we preview this knockout game. The match gets underway in Dunedin at 11:00 local time.

Otago Volts had been in very strong form before they were heavily beaten by Canterbury Kings on Monday. They will need to perform to a much higher level in this game if they are to reach the final.

Northern Brave had a poor start to the tournament but have lost only one match of their last seven fixtures. They will come into this game full of confidence.

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OV Team News

The Volts made one change for their final group stage game with wicket-keeper Max Chu coming in for Dale Phillips at number four in the batting line-up. Although it was a heavy defeat, we expect Chu to continue after Phillips’ poor returns with the bat during the tournament.

OV Key Players

  • Jake Gibson - The right-handed top order batter has found his best form over the last two games. He struck 75 not out from 48 balls at this venue against Canterbury Kings in Match 30.
  • Dean Foxcroft - The leading run scorer in the tournament added another 46 runs to his tally in the final group stage game. He hit an additional four fours and three sixes on this surface.
  • Matthew Bacon - The opening bowler dismissed Ken McClure on this pitch on Monday and will be used as a strike-bowler in this match.

OV Team Form

The Volts lost their first game in seven fixtures when they were beaten by eight wickets on Monday.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

After two successive games were abandoned without a ball being bowled, Northern Brave finally got on the pitch and won the crucial game with Central Stags in Match 27. That game will be nearly a week ago by the time of the Elimination Final and we expect to see the same XI.

ND Key Players

  • Jeet Raval - The skipper top scored across both sides in the last game but has struggled against Otago Volts in the tournament. He will need to produce a big score to keep his side competitive.
  • Neil Wagner - The 36 year old left-arm medium fast bowler was in fine form against Central Stags. He dismissed Tom Bruce and Doug Bracewell whilst conceding only 20 runs from his four overs.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn - The bowling all-rounder has taken nine wickets from his last four games. He dismissed both openers in the last Super Smash fixture.

ND Team Form

You have to go back to January 13th to find the last time that Northern Brave were defeated in this tournament.

Northern Brave Predicted Playing 11

Katene Clarke, Tim Seifert (wk), Jeet Raval (c), Joe Carter, Henry Cooper, Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Frederick Walker, Tim Pringle, Neil Wagner, Joe Walker

Who will win Otago Volts vs Northern Brave T20 Match?

Although the Otago Volts bowlers had an off-day on Monday, they have been impressive across the tournament. With their top order batters also in good form, they will be very hard to beat.

OV vs ND Top Team Batsmen

Jake Gibson, Hamish Rutherford and Dean Foxcroft are our batting picks for Otago Volts. Rutherford had a strike-rate of 175 at the top of the order and hit four boundaries in Match 28. Foxcroft has scored three half-centuries and has an average of 48.12 in this year’s Super Smash.

Jeet Raval, Tim Seifert and Katene Clarke are our batting choices for Northern Brave. Seifert has a top score of 59 in this campaign and has hit 3295 T20 runs across his career. Clarke hit 68 runs from 45 balls against Otago Volts in a recent Ford Trophy fixture.

OV vs ND Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Matthew Bacon, Michael Rae and Michael Rippon are our tips with the ball for Otago Volts. Rippon bowls left-arm wrist spin and has taken wickets in both of the last two games in Dunedin. Rae was expensive on Monday but is the leading wicket taker in the tournament.

We are backing Scott Kuggeleijn, Neig Wagner and Brett Hampton as our bowling picks for Northern Brave. Hampton did not pick up a wicket against Central Stags but still has a strike-rate of 8.0 in the competition. Wagner’s best T20 figures are 4-33.

🏆 Otago Volts vs Northern Brave Prediction

With a final against Canterbury Kings on Saturday for the winner, we are expecting a close and entertaining clash in Dunedin on Thursday. Both teams lost only three matches across the group stage and Northern Brave will feel that they could have finished top of the table if they had not had three games washed out. The Volts have an excellent batting line-up and we think that will be the major difference between the sides. Our prediction is for Otago Volts to win and go through to the final.
