OV vs NK Match & Analysis

We are down to the last to matches in the Super Smash's league stage, but as the playoff spots are already decided, these matches will not carry any major significance. Having said that, all four sides involved in these two matches would want to register a win so as to bow out of the tournament on a high. The next match is to be played at University Oval, Dunedin, on 6th February 2021.

OV vs NK Team Previews

Otago Volts

Otago Volts started off well in the tournament, but ever since the Kiwi stars have returned to play in Super Smash, the Volts' performance has dropped down. They are now placed lower than the Auckland Aces, at the sixth position, and would do well to avoid the wooden spoon. It will be imperative for them to win this match if they want to finish fifth on the points table.

In a total of nine matches played so far, the Volts have managed to win just two. They have eight points and a terrible net run-rate of -1.407. It's been six matches since Otago Volts registered their last win and ever since they've been thrashed by every single team they have faced. Having said that, the fact that their last win was against Northern Knights will imbibe a bit of confidence among the Volts' players.

In the most recent encounter, the Aces defeated Otago Volts by a whopping margin of 103 runs. Chasing a total of 183, the Volts managed to score just 80 runs. Looking at the scoresheet is enough to illustrate how dismal the Volts were in the match. They failed at all fronts and it would be interesting to see how they bounce back from a deflating defeat.

It's not that the Volts do not have the experience or the team on paper. They have a team that is rich in experience and skill both, but the execution is lacking. With the race to the playoffs already over, the Volts are unlikely to be as motivated as they were at the start of the tournament. However, they'd want to end their campaign on a high and are likely to come out all guns blazing.

Northern Knights

There are not many teams in the world that are as beautiful to watch playing as the Northern Knights are. They have some of the most fluent batsmen in New Zealand cricket available at their disposal and have a bowling lineup that oozes class. However, more often than not, the Knights do not have a full-strength squad available and that is what hampered them in this edition as well.

They got off to a terrible start in the tournament, picked up some momentum in the middle part, but then really stepped on the gas pedal once their Kiwi players arrived. However, given the position they're in right now, it is pretty clear that the Knights surged a little too late for their liking. In a total of nine matches, the Knights have won four and lost five. They have a net run-rate of -0.718, which shows that the tournament hasn't really gone as they or their fans would have liked to.

From a total of four wins, the Knights have registered three in their last three matches. They were ruthless in all of those three games and we expect them to continue marching like the way they've been doing. Their last encounter was around a week ago wherein they defeated Auckland Aces by a margin of three wickets.

The Knights have a pretty well-balanced combination of players with almost each of them having plenty of experience. Even though they now have Kane Williamson available, they are being led by Anton Devcich, who hasn't really had the kind of tournament he wanted. Overall, the Knights are a team that is packed with talent right through. With the form they are in, it is going to be difficult for the Volts to get past them.

OV vs NK Betting Tips

Although this match doesn't carry much weightage, we expect the two teams to come out hard at each other. No team wants to bow out of the tournament on a losing note and that is exactly what the two teams will be looking to avoid. Northern Knights and Otago Volts have had contrasting results in their recent respective matches and that is likely to play a part in the result of this match. Apart from that, the Knights have a terrific team on-paper, and considering that and the other aforementioned reasons, we expect the Knights to race to an easy win in this upcoming fixture.
