Betting Tips
  • Nick Kelly hit 398 runs across the 2020-21 Super Smash campaign and he is our pick for Otago Volts’ highest run scorer in this match. Captain Jacob Duffy has been taking wickets in recent Plunket Shield games and took 11 wickets during the last Super Smash season. Duffy is well worth backing as Otago Volts’ top wicket taker against Central Stags.
  • George Worker found the boundary 40 times last season and is a strong choice for Central Stags’ highest run scorer against Otago Volts. With the ball, Blair Tickner is a constant threat with his medium fast bowling and is our tip for Central Stags’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We are backing Blair Tickner to be the star bowler and to take the Player of The Match Award.

Otago vs Central Stags T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Super Smash 2021

Otago Volts and Central Stags get their Men’s Super Smash campaigns underway at the University of Otago Oval, Dunedin on Sunday afternoon. Otago Volts finished bottom of the table last season with only two victories from ten games. Central Stags finished 2nd in the league but were beaten in the Preliminary Final. Read on as we preview this opening fixture. The match begins at 13:40 local time.

Otago Volts will struggle to do any worse than they did last season. They can start with a fresh slate in this campaign but have a tough opponent first up.

Central Stags will be looking to go one better and reach the final in this year’s Super Smash. They are a strong and consistent unit who play well as a team

Otago Volts Team News & Playing 11

OTG Team News

Unlike some of the other squads, Otago Volts do not have any players absent on international duty. As a result they will be able to field their first choice XI in this game of Super Smash 2021. Wicket-keeper Max Chu hit a double-hundred in a recent Plunket Shield game.

OTG Key Players

  • Nick Kelly- the leading run scorer for the Volts last season made 4 half-centuries and hit 54 boundaries over the campaign.
  • Hamish Rutherford- the former New Zealand international had a poor season by his own high standards last year. An improvement from him will make a big difference to the Volts.
  • Jacob Duffy- the skipper took 11 wickets with an impressive economy rate of 8.08 last season. He will be keen to lift his side to a better position.

OTG Team Form

The Volts lost seven successive Super Smash games at the end of last season. They will be looking for an early win this time.  

Otago Volts Predicted Playing 11

Nick Kelly, Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Dale Phillips, Anaru Kitchen, Michael Rippon, Nathan Smith, Max Chu (wk), Mitchell McClenaghan, Michael Rae, Jacob Duffy (c)

Central Stags Team News & Playing 11

CS Team News

The Stags will be able to put out a strong XI in this game but will be without Will Young, Ross Taylor and Ajaz Patel who are all playing in the India v New Zealand Test series. Apart from the three internationals, the Stags have full availability from the rest of their squad.

CS Key Players

  • George Worker- the batting all-rounder does not deal in quick singles with the bulk of his runs coming from boundaries. 
  • Tom Bruce- the international batter captains the team and leads by example in this format. He hit 2 half-centuries last season.
  • Blair Tickner- the pace bowler can be expensive at times but is also a wicket taker. Last season he took 4-26 in one match.

CS Team Form

The Stags ended last season in poor form winning only one of their final four Super Smash fixtures

Central Stags Predicted Playing 11

George Worker, Dane Cleaver (wk), Bayley Wiggins, Tom Bruce (c), Josh Clarkson, Doug Bracewell, Joey Field, Blair Tickner, Jayden Lennox, Seth Rance, Kieran Noema-Barnett
