It is time for the Elimination Final of Super Smash 2019-20 between the Otago Volts and the Auckland Aces. The two teams are going to be facing in a semi-final of sorts to win and face the Wellington Firebirds in the Super Smash Final.
It seems fitting that the Otago Volts and the Auckland Aces are playing this match. They are both teams with very different resources but have ended up at the same place. The Otago Volts may not have the big-names and storied players that the Auckland Aces do but they are still a formidable unit. The Auckland Aces, on the other hand, are blessed with more international talent in their squad than all the other teams combined!
Which one will find a way past to the Super Smash 2019-20 Final?
Otago Volts vs Auckland Aces Super Smash 2019-20 Elimination Final is going to be played at the University Oval, Dunedin on the 17th of January 2020.
The Otago Volts had a great opportunity to try and top the Super Smash 2019-20 League table by winning their previous match. Unfortunately, they stumbled against the Canterbury Kings and now have to face this sudden death contest against the Auckland Aces.
With three losses in the previous four games, the Otago Volts have lost momentum in the final stages of the Super Smash and will be hoping to regain their best form in this match.
The success of the Otago Volts was based on the batting performances of Neil Broom and Hamish Rutherford to a large extent. Nick Kelly also scored 62 in the previous match and is in good touch but one of the two openers has to get a big score otherwise the Otago volts are going to struggle.
The middle-order of the side is composed of some fine all-round players like Anaru Kitchen, Josh Finnie, Dean Foxtrot, and Michael Rippon.
Jacob Duffy is the captain of the Otago Volts and also its most successful bowler. He knows he has a tough task ahead of him trying to contain an Auckland Aces side that is loaded with batting firepower. Michael Rae and Anaru Kitchen are perhaps the two other leading bowlers after Jacob Duffy in this side.
The Otago Volts have proven that they are more than the sum of their parts but their recent loss of form does not make us very confident about their chances.
Hamish Rutherford, NT Broom, Dean Foxcroft, Nick Kelly, Anaru Kitchen, Joshua Finnie, MJ Rippon, Nathan Smith, Jacob Duffy, Max Chu, Michael Rae.
Unlike their opponents in this match, the Auckland Aces are roaring into the Elimination Final with some serious momentum. The Aces have won three out of their last four matches and seem to be peaking at just the right time.
It is also hard to look past their star-studded batting lineup with names like Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, and Craig Cachopa.
The big names at the top may get all the attention but the middle-order is not one to be taken lightly either. It was the pair of Chapman and Cachopa that top-scored in the previous match and ended up helping the Auckland side to a win.
The experience of playing and winning knockout matches is invaluable and that is exactly what the senior international players have. The Auckland Aces batting is certainly leaps and bounds ahead of the Otago Volts.
Mitchell McClenaghan and Kyle Jamieson are going to be leading the pace attack with Will Somerville as the lead spin-bowling option. Then there are useful bowlers like Ronnie Hira, Mark Chapman, and Colin Munro, all of whom can contribute at different stages of the match.
The Auckland Aces have a well-balanced side and even though their bowling is not the strongest, there is still enough variety in it to keep the opposition under control.
Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, GD Phillips, Craig Cachopa, Mark Chapman, Robert O'Donnell, Ben Horne, Ronnie Hira, W Somerville, MJ Mcclenaghan, Kyle Jamieson.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first.

A beautiful day for cricket is predicted in Dunedin for matchday with clear and sunny skies forecast. The pitch at the University Oval is excellent for batting and that means we can look forward to a high-scoring contest between the two sides.
There are enough big-hitters in both sides to make each other nervous. We don’t think the team batting first is going to be happy with a score of less than 190 batting first.
There is nothing in the surface for the bowlers and they will have to rely on their changes of pace to be somewhat effective.

The current form of the Auckland Aces is better than the Otago Volts. The Aces also have a batting lineup that can obliterate the Volts on their day. The Otago Volts should not be counted out since they have constantly punched above their weight in Super Smash 2019-20 but we think their campaign is about to come to an end.
Bet on the Auckland Aces to win.
