Otago vs Central Stags, Super Smash 2020-21

Both teams sit next to each other in the points table. Otago Volts have two wins in 3 matches while Central Stags have two wins in four games. It’s still early days in the tournament but it is one of the most awaited games of the tournament. 

Read our Preview as Otago Volts host Central Stags in the 11th match of the Super Smash. The match will be played at University Oval, Dunedin and is scheduled to begin at 3:10 local time. 

Otago Volts have a decent bowling line up and we expect them to keep a check on the Central Stags bowling line up. Jacob Duffy, Mitchell McClenaghan are one of the finest T-20 bowlers. Also the all rounders I.e Anaru Kitchen, Michael Rippon and Matthew Bacon will do the job on most days.

The batting is also good Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom and Nick Kelly. The middle order looks a bit wobbly though as apart from Llew Johnson, none of the other batsmen has scored runs.

Central District on the other were restricted to 117 in their 20 overs but overall their batting has been very good. George Worker has been in terrific form at the top. The performance from Leopard, Clever and Bracewell has been decent too.

In the bowling department Doug Bracewell, Blair Tickner, Ajaz Patel, and Kieran Noema-Barnett form a strong attack.

Overall, Central Stags forms a pretty balance team and looks good to pocket a victory against Otago Volts.
