OV vs AA Match & Analysis

Things are beginning to settle down in the Plunkett Shield just as the tournament is getting into its second half. Canterbury Kings are looking well settled at the top of the table, but the battle for the remaining spot is heating up with almost all teams still very capable to rise up the ranks very quickly. The result of the upcoming match will probably shuffle things in the middle of the points table. The next match is to be played between Auckland Aces and Otago Volts, who both have been far from their best. The match will be played at Queen's Park, Invercargill, on 18th March 2021.

OV vs AA Team Previews

Otago Volts

With 32 points in five matches, the Volts are placed fifth on the ladder and will be looking to get some wins under their belt. A win here will possibly push them to the third spot and that is exactly what they'll be aiming for. Up until now, the Volts have won only one match, but have drawn three. The divide illustrates the aggression or lack thereof that has been on the show from the Volts.

Otago Volts are coming off a huge loss at the hands of Canterbury Kings, who are arguably the best team of the tournament. The Kings did reasonably well in their first innings, scoring 375 runs, but a poor show in the second innings cost them the match. Had they not declared their innings for 375/6, they would possibly be sitting at the fourth spot on the points table.

The Volts have a talented side with a deep batting unit available at their disposal. While this quality allowed them to match Canterbury in the first innings of the last match, it also made them complacent that they declared their innings rather too early. They were left hanging mid-air as they not only failed to chase down the total but also were defeated rather considerably.

Like the Aces, the Volts have the problem of lack of experience. This can haunt them in high-pressure situations. Other than that, the Volts have a decent side, and defeating them is not going to be easy.

Auckland Aces

The Aces will be pretty relieved that they survived a close scare in the previous match as the rain took the advantage away from the Knights. The draw kept Auckland Aces firmly in contention and they are now placed at the third spot on the points table with 44 points to their name. Surprisingly, the Aces have not lost a game yet, but converting draws to wins will be their task going forward.

In the last match, Auckland's batting perished like a pack of cards, but rain rescued them out as they managed to salvage a draw. Also, the Aces did reasonably well in the second innings with their top-order producing innings of substance that was needed the most.

On paper, the Aces have a decent unit, but a lack of international experience is apparent. No one from their top-order has played for New Zealand and handling pressure could be an issue in crunch situations. Their bowling arguably looks better than their batting and that will be their trump card going forward. If the bowlers manage to do the job for them, the Aces will be in with a chance.

OV vs AA Betting Tips

This is an important match for both sides and a win here is of significant importance. Otago Volts need a win to stay in the hunt whereas the Aces will want to register a win to rise up the ladder. This is going to be a hard-fought match for sure. Considering the two sides on paper and how they have done in the tournament so far, betting on an Aces win should be the way to go.
