Otago vs Wellington, Super Smash 2020-21

Otago will take on Wellington in the 15th match of the Super Smash 2020-21. The match will be played at the University Oval and is set to begin at 3:10 Pm local time.

With 2 wins and 2 losses, Otago have had a mixed tournament. Their last match was against the Central Stags where they suffered a humiliating loss by 53 runs.

Chasing a target of 224, Otago could only manage 170 in their 20 overs. 

It’s a performance they’d like to forget.

The problem for Otago has been their batting that looks good on paper but fail to deliver when it matters the most. 

Players like Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Llew Johnson, Nick Kelly, Mitch Renwick have been very inconsistent. All of them are class players but they need to deliver a collective performance to win against strong opposition.

The bowlers were taken to cleaners in the last match. Mitchell McClenaghan did bowl well but Jacob Duffy, Anaru Kitchen, Matthew Bacon, Michael Rippon and Michael Ray all were pretty expensive.

All of these bowlers have performed well in the tournament and we expect them to fair better in the next match. However, Wellington is in top form thus it won’t be that easy.

Wellington is getting better with each passing game. They defeated Northern Knights in their last game by a massive margin of 80 runs. 

The batting has been top class with Finn Allen, Devon Conway, Tom Blundell in top form. Jimmy Neesham and Michael Bracewell haven’t got much opportunity but can be very dangerous with the bat.

In the bowling department, all the bowlers have been terrific. Hemish Bennett, Jimmy Neesham, Peter Younghusband, Michael Bracewell, Rachin Ravindra forms a pretty solid bowling line up.

Overall, Wellington looks in ominous form and getting past them won’t be easy for any opposition.
