Neil Broom made 32 from 17 balls in Otago Volts’ last game and is a strong choice for their highest run scorer against Canterbury Kings. Anaru Kitchen took 4-11 from 4 overs against Auckland Aces and is well worth backing as Otago Volts’ top wicket taker in this game.
Chad Bowes top scored with 58 from 40 balls on Friday and is our pick for Canterbury Kings’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Ed Nuttall has taken 15 wickets from nine games in the tournament and is our tip for Canterbury Kings’ top wicket taker against Otago Volts.
We expect to see Ed Nuttall picking up wickets in this match and he is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.
