Betting Tips

  • Otago thrashed Auckland in their last game and will be very high on confidence. They have a solid tean and look very superior to Canterbury.
  • This will be Canterbury's first game in the tournament but they seems to be a little thin in the bowling departmenrt. The addition of Matt Henry will be a boost through.
  • The presence of number of all rounder makes Otago a better balanced side. We see them as big favourites against Canterbury.

OTG vs CAN T20 Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2020

After thrashing Auckland in their previous match, Otago will look to continue their winning run as they take on Canterbury in the 4th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played on 29th December and is scheduled to begin at 4:00 PM local time.

Otago will be playing their second game in two days and will be very confident, especially after the way their performed against Auckland. 

The batting for Otago was exceptional in the last game, something we can expect from them for this match as well. Hemish Rutherfort, Neil Broom, Nick Kelly batted well but it was the scintillating show from Llew Johnson that helped them reach a massive 219.

In the bowling department, Jacob Duffy, Matthew Bacon, Anaru Kitchen were terrific in the last game. Yes, Mitchel McClenaghan was expensive but we expect him to perform better in the next game. Overall, Otago look a very strong team and they certainly are the team to beat of the tournament.

Canterbury had a disappointing last season and they’ll hope to deliver show this time around.
They have a decent batting in Chad Brown, Jack Boyle, Leo Carter, Cole McConchie and Cam Fletcher while Andrew Ellis, Henry Shipley, Todd Astle, Will Williams and ED Nuttall will take Canterbury’s charge with the ball. Looking at their team they do have some quality in their squad but Otago at the moment are looking very strong in comparison to Canterbury

Otago will be playing the same squad that took on Auckland but we might see a couple of changes for their upcoming game against Canterbury. Travis Muller and Josh Finnie were the two players to miss out against Auckland. They might get their chance against Canterbury.

Canterbury Team News & Playing 11

CAN Team News

Canterburry has announced their 13 man squad to take on Otago on 29th December. The core of the team is pretty much the same that played the last season but the addition of New Zealand superstar Matt Henry for Super Smash 2020-21 will be a big boost for the team. 

CAN Key Players

  • Chad Brown - Chad Brown  was in decent form for Canterburry in the Ford Trophy. He can be backed to carry on his form in the Super Smash as well.
  • Leo Carter - Leo Carter is another batsmen that Canterburry heavily depends on. He’d want to get off to a solid start in this tournament.
  • Matt Henry - Matt Henry is a quality bowler and can cause a lot of trouble to the Otago batsmen with his extra pace and bounce. 

CAN Team Form

Canterburry will be playing their first game of the tournament so their form cannot be assessed but they didn’t performed well in the last season as well and finished 5th.

OTG vs CAN Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Matt Renwick at 8.0 is a terrific pick from this section. He looked in good touch in the match aganst Auckland thus he’s our preferred pick.

  • Batsmen

    Neil Broom and Nick Kelly at 9.0, Chad Bowes at 9.5 and Llew Johnson at 8.0 form a strong batting order. All of them have been in some form of late. Nick Kelly and Neil Broom are the two top performers for Otago while Llew Johnson played a blinder in the next match.

  • All rounder

    Anaru Kitchen and Todd Astle at 9.5 will balance our side. Todd Astle is one of the best spinner in New Zealand while Anaru Kitchen has been terrific of late.

  • Bowlers

    Matt Henry, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jacon Duffy ad E Nuttall at 8.5 will complete a strong team. Matt Henry and Mitch McClenaghan can rush the batsmen with pace while Jacob Duffy bowled well in the last match. ED Nuttall is Canterbury’s best bowler.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Llew Johnson is our preferred captain while Nick Kelly can be backed as his deputy
