Just as we predicted, Otago Volts reclaimed their supremacy on at the ladder as they defeated Northern Knights in their previous encounter. With half of the tournament already gone, the importance of each point is now greater than ever as the teams aren't left with too many matches to play. However, Canterbury Kings still have plenty of time on hands as they have played just three matches in the tournament so far. They'll be up against Otago Volts in their upcoming fixture, which is to be played at Molyneux Park, Alexandra on Monday, 30th December. There is a huge difference between the points the two teams have and despite that, we expect a hard-fought contest between the two sides.
With 14 points in five matches, Otago Volts are pretty much in a position to dictate terms. They are placed at the top of the table and a nother couple of wins should be enough to ascertain them a playoff spot in the tournament. Also, they have a high net run-rate of 0.763, which speaks volumes about the dominance they have exhibited in the tournament.
After a heart-breaking loss to Wellington Firebirds a couple of days ago, the Volts fired back with a superb win over Northern Knights in a closely fought contest. Batting first on an excellent day to play, Otago Volts' batting did a superb job of posting a tall total of 185 runs on the board.
Although the total wasn't really imposing that it meant a sure-shot win, it certainly placed Volts in a good position to defend. While the Knights batsmen tried hard to chase the total down, the Volts' bowlers did well to pick up wickets at regular intervals. Their bowlers picked up eight wickets in total as they restricted Knights six runs short of their own total.

Canterbury Kings have been the least busy team in the tournament so far and it is evident by the fact that they have played just three matches. Out of the three matches played, they have managed to win one and one of their other three matches was washed out by rain. Their points tally stands at six and will be looking to get in the scheme of things, as far as the playoffs are concerned, with a win in this upcoming encounter.
The Kings last played a match almost a week ago and they had a pretty good time in that match. Although a week-long break would have done a world of good for them, it might prove to be an obstacle, considering the momentum they had after a terrific win.
Batting first against the Central Stags, Canterbury Kings started off pretty well CJ Bowes and JCT Boyle getting them off to a stable start. However, they lost a few wickets in the middle overs, but somehow crawled their way to 164. Their bowlers, however, targetted tight channels from the very beginning and kept the Districts' run-rate in check. Coburn picked up four wickets in the middle-overs to rock Central Districts from which the Stags couldn't recover. Stags were eventually restricted to a total of just 134.
Chad Bowes, Jack Boyle, Stephen Murdoch, Cole McConchie, Cameron Fletcher, Andrew Ellis, Leo Carter, Henry Burton Shipley, Will Williams, Blake Peter Coburn, Ed Nuttall.
Its an important fixture for both the sides. While Otago Volts would love to ascertain a playoff spot as soon as possible, Canterbury Kings would like to get into the mix of things as well. Both the sides are coming off wins in their respective encounters, but considering the way teams are doing in the tournament, the Volts appear to be a better unit. Also, the Kings will be back on the field after a little while and that might prove to be counter-productive. Betting on a Volts' win would be the way to go in the upcoming encounter.
