We are down to the last few matches in the Super Smash and the Knights have scripted a fantastic turnaround to bounce back into contention to qualify for the next rounds. Apart from a win, they still need a few results to go their way to qualify for the next round.
Canterbury Kings and Otago Volts are set to meet next in the tournament and the result of this match will have a massive impact on qualification scenarios. A win for Canterbury will close the doors for the Knights whereas a win for Volts will render the competition wide open. The match between the two sides is to be played at Hagley Oval, Christchurch on 30th January 2021.
Even though the Kings are still placed third on the ladder, they will be disappointed by the way they have performed in their last few matches. Currently, they have 20 points written against their name with a net run-rate of 0.258 but are coming off two back to back losses. If they manage to post a win here, their net run-rate will be inconsequential. However, a loss for them will likely bring their net run-rate into the picture as well and that is something they'd need to be wary of.
Canterbury Kings appeared to be one of the better-balanced teams in the first part of the tournament, but with New Zealand players returning, they now appear to be a little weak in comparison to the other teams. Theif batting failed to do anything of substance in the last two matches and that proved to be the major reason for their defeats.
On paper, the Kings lack experience but have a team that has punched above their weight. Daryl Mitchell looked in prime form in the earlier half of the tournament but his lack of contribution with the bat is certainly a big cause of concern for the Kings. They have a fantastic bowling unit in Ed Nuttall, Todd Astle, and Matt Henry, who all are capable to get past any batting unit. If Kings manage to play to their potential, things will be difficult for the Knights in the upcoming encounter.

While Otago Volts are still in contention to qualify for the playoffs, they'd feel that they have missed a trick here. At one stage, the gap between Volts and the team placed at the third spot was not much, but now it has opened up to 12 points with Volts dropping down to the fifth spot. In a total of seven matches played, the Volts have won just two and consequently have eight points to their name. They have a net run-rate of -0.995, which is the least among all teams in the tournament.
As many as four matches have elapsed since the Volts registered their last win. After that win, the Volts were smashed to all parts of the ground by almost all teams. With Kiwi players returning to their respective domestic squads, it seems that the Volts have lost the plot. It's not just been the losses they have faced but also the manner in which those losses have come.
The Volts lost their last match to Wellington Firebirds by four wickets after putting up a nothing total on the board. Otago Volts lost too many wickets upfront and that has been their story in the whole of the tournament. On paper, the Volts have a team that has decent experience and skill but lack of execution is clearly hurting them. This is a must-win game for them to stay in the tournament and they'll be under heavy pressure. All of their players would need to put their best foot forward and if that happens, the Volts will be in business.

Both sides now have a string of losses in their previous few matches and will be desperate to register a win here. While the Volts appear to be a better-balanced side between the two on paper, their execution has been haywire. The Kings, on the other hand, do not have the star power but have executed their plans well. Considering that and the fact that the Kings have more number of match-winners available, betting on a Kings' win should be the way to go here.
