OTG vs NK Betting Tips

  • Hamish Rutherford had a strong campaign last season and the opener is our tip for Otago Volts’ highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Michael Rae took 3-13 in the first match and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Otago Volts’ top wicket taker against Northern Brave.
  • Tim Seifert has scored over 3100 T20 runs and the opener is our pick for Northern Brave’s highest run scorer against Otago Volts. There was only one wicket for Northern Brave in their defeat to Canterbury Kings and we have Scott Kuggeleijn as a strong choice for Brave’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • Our recommendation for this game is to back Scott Kuggeleijn to take over 1.5 wickets.

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

Match 5 of the 2022-23 Super Smash sees Otago Volts host Northern Brave on Wednesday afternoon at the Sir John Davies Oval. Both teams were beaten in their opening fixture of the season. Otago Volts lost to Wellington Firebirds with Northern Brave beaten by Canterbury Kings. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game gets underway at 14:40 local time in Queenstown.

Otago Volts showed some positive signs in their defeat to Wellington Firebirds with big runs for Dean Foxcroft and wickets for Michael Rae. The Volts will be competitive but may not have enough quality to win this game.

Very few pundits predicted a Canterbury Kings win over Northern Brave on Friday and we expect Brave to respond with a much stronger performance with both bat and ball in this clash.

OV vs ND Match Toss Prediction

No team has ever batted first at this venue in a Super Smash game and got the victory. Our prediction is that both captains will want to field first in this game.

OV vs ND Pitch Report

It is a good batting wicket in Queenstown with the ball coming onto the bat at pace. However, there will also be movement off the pitch for seam bowlers.

Weather Report

There will be no clouds from the start to finish of this game and the temperature will peak at 28 degrees in the second half of the match.

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OV Team News

Although they were up against the 2021-22 Super Smash Runners-Up, Otago Volts put in a strong display against Wellington Firebirds and we would be surprised if they make any changes ahead of this match. They do play another match 24 hours after this one but we do not expect any players to be rested.

OV Key Players

  • Hamish Rutherford - The skipper, keeper-batter and opener made only two runs from four balls against Wellington but has scored over 4000 T20 runs.
  • Dean Foxcroft - The South African all-rounder got his campaign off to a fantastic individual start by hitting 73 runs and taking 2-14 with the ball. He will be full of confidence ahead of this game.
  • Michael Rae - The right-arm medium fast bowler picked up the wickets of both Wellington Firebirds openers on Saturday and should enjoy the conditions at the Sir John Davies Oval.

OV Team Form

Otago Volts were very poor throughout last season and, even though the margin was only eight runs in their opener, it is another defeat in a row.

Northern Brave Team News & Playing 11

ND Team News

The 2021-22 Champions struggled throughout the 14 over per-side game on Friday and will be pleased to be back to the standard 20 over format in this match. We do not expect Northern Brave to make any changes to their XI after just one defeat.

ND Key Players

  • Katene Clarke - The 23 year old opener plays the game in an exciting manner. He has only appeared in 17 T20s but gets his runs at a strike-rate of 139.76.
  • Tim Seifert - The experienced keeper-batter will be looking to respond in this clash after making a three ball duck and not taking a catch against Canterbury Kings.
  • Scott Kuggeleijn - The 30 year old opening bowler has a reputation for often conceding runs but also being a regular wicket taker. His best figures in this format are 4-18.

ND Team Form

After ending last season in fantastic form and going all the way in the competition, Northern Brave must now show that they are able to respond to an early season defeat.

Northern Brave Predicted Playing 11

Katene Clarke, Tim Seifert (wk), Jeet Raval (c), Joe Carter, Mitchell Santner, Brett Hampton, Henry Cooper, Scott Kuggeleijn, Kristian Clarke, Tim Pringle, Joe Walker
