Rain played spoilsport in Super Smash as Auckland Aces and Canterbury Kings both remained winless after their second respective mathces. With a win in their match, Central Districts rose to the top of the ladder, displacing Otago Volts to the second spot. Otago Volts will be looking to regain their top-of-the-table position when they take on Auckland Aces in their upcoming fixture. The match between the two sides is to be played on 19th December at University Oval, Dunedin. Auckland Aces are currently placed at the fifth spot on the ladder and are likely to move to the third spot if they manage to move in this upcoming contest. Besides, points in the early part of the tournament are of huge significance and both the sides are expected to come out all guns blazing. A scintillating contest is certainly on the cards on Thursday.
Although Aces have been a part of two matches in the tournament, on paper, they have had actually one chance in the tournament. Their previous match, against Canterbury Kingss, was washed out due to rain and they had to settle with just a couple of points. As it stand, the Aces are placed at the fifth spot on the ladder with a net run-rate of -0.65.
Auckland Aces' previous match was washed out due to rain, but not before Aces had an initial burst with the ball. Bowling first, Aces failed to make early inroads in the Kings' lineup. Canterbury Kings were beautifully placed before rain intervened and the match was called off due to rain.
Coincidentally, Auckland played their first match against the Volts, the same team they are set to face tomorrow. In that match, Auckland Aces failed to chase down a considerably big total despite getting off to a flying start. They will be looking to turn things around when the two teams meet in the upcoming encounter.

Its been a while since Otago Volts played their last match. The Volts had a busy beginning to the tournament as they played two matches on back to back days. However, they would be pretty happy with the position they are in at the ladder. They registered wins in both their matches, against Northern Districts and Auckland Aces, and are consequently comfortably placed at the second spot on the points table.
In the competition so far, Otago Volts have batted brilliantly. They scored a total of 210 runs against the Aces and followed it up with a towering total of 198 against Northern Districts. In their previous match, although none of their batsmen managed to get to a fifty, the fact that they managed to score a total of almost 200 is commendable. Neil Broom, Dean Foxtrot, Nick Kelly, and Josh Finnie played important cameos to take Volts to 173 in the 15th over. However, Otago Volts lost their way in the death overs as they could score only 25 runs in the last 28 balls after Josh Finnie was dismissed.
In addition to their brilliant batting, their bowlers have done marvelously in the two matches. The Volts, so far, have played on smaller ground and defending any total wasn't any easy job, but they did it to perfection. Nathan Smith was brilliant against the Northern Districts as he not only stemmed the flow of runs in the middle overs, but also picked up five important wickets. He returned with the impressive figures of 14 for 5 in 3.4 overs.
Hamish Rutherford, NT Broom, Nick Kelly, Dean Foxcroft, Nathan Smith, Anaru Kitchen, Joshua Finnie, MJ Rippon, Jacob Duffy, Max Chu, Michael Rae.

Not often do we see two teams meeting each other with a span of just one match in between in longer tournaments. Here we are, however, with Auckland Aces taking on Otago Volts for the second time in the tournament. Otago Volts survived a scare in the first match as they managed to restrict Aces despite being on back-foot in the earlier part of second innings. Auckland Aces, on the other hand, will be itching to prove themselves and get off the mark in the tournament. While the Volts will be more confident of the two sides, Auckland Aces are a slightly better team on paper, and are, therefore, our pick to emerge on top on Thursday.
