Read our quick thoughts
  • Otago Volts' bowling is more experienced and seems to be doing pretty well in the tournament so far
  • Northern Districts seem to be a little too over-reliant on Tim Seifert and Scott Kuggeleijn to do the business
  • Neil Broom, Llew Johnson, Mitch Renwick, and Hamish Rutherford have been in terrific form in their limited outings that we have seen so far

NK vs OV Match Prediction & Analysis

It's been a while since Super Smash started and things still seem to be raw and fresh as far as the points table is concerned. There are lots of permutations and combinations possible before we zero-in on our finalists. Two teams are yet to get off the mark in the tournament and the Knights will be looking to put their first win in the tournament when they meet Otago Volts in an upcoming contest. The match is to be played at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui, on 2nd January 2020.

Team Previews

Northern Knights

It's been rather surprising to see Northern Knights posting a poor performance in the tournament so far considering the players they have at their disposal. Not only have they lost both their matches, but their losses have also been one-sided and that is evident by their terrible net run-rate, which is -2.267.

In both the matches that the Knights have lost, there was one factor that was common - their batting. Despite having an experienced and explosive batting unit, the Knights could not score as well as they'd have liked and a lot of that could be attributed to the fact that not many of their players had played the game in recent times.

Against the Firebirds, they managed to put just 148 runs on the board with Tim Seifert top-scoring for them. Apart from Seifert, however, there was no one in the Knights' top-order who managed to take the attack to the opposition. As expected, the total they posted was easily knocked off by Wellington Firebirds.

There's a lot that the Knights need to improve upon going forward in the competition. They have the team on paper, but the lack of execution is hurting them. If they can get their execution right, the Knights will be in a decent chance against the Volts.

Otago Volts

Otago Volts got off to a terrific start in the tournament, but could not build on it as they lost their second match. Their win came against Auckland Aces, one of the most successful sides in the history of the tournament, but then they lost to Canterbury Kings. As of now, they stand at the fourth spot on the points table, but a win here will take them to the second spot if we disregard the net run-rate.

Otago's batsmen posted a mammoth total in their first match, but they were restricted to just 124 against the Kings. Chasing a total of 186, the Volts ended up with just 124 runs on the board with only Neil Broom doing a decent job. On paper, the Volts have a decent batting unit, but the consistency or lack thereof could hurt them in the tournament going forward. Apart from Broom, they have Hamish Rutherford, Nick Kelly, and Anaru Kitchen as the experienced campaigners.

Contrary to their batsmen's performance, their bowlers' performance has been decent so far. They did well to keep Auckland Aces quiet in the first match and followed it up with a decent performance against the Kings. Jacob Duffy, Mitchell McCleneghan, and Michael Rippon have been doing well and might need to be at their best against a potent Knights' batting unit.

NK vs OV Betting Tips

Northern Knights finished at the bottom of the points table last year and their campaign this year seems to be going in the same direction. They already have two heavy losses written against their name and will be desperate to register their first points tomorrow. Otago Volts, on the other hand, have done a decent job so far and will be eying to rise up the ladder. They have the momentum and a bowling attack that is working well. For that reason, we think that Otago Volts are firm favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
