The Wellington Firebirds and the Otago Volts will be playing against each other in this upcoming match of the Super Smash. Both the teams have got off to a decent start in the tournament. The Otago Volts are unbeaten after two completed matches and one rained-out fixture while the Wellington Firebirds have won one out of their two matches as well.
The teams now have the opportunity to lift their tempo a bit and really get into the thick of things.
Wellington Firebirds vs Otago Volts Super Smash 2019-20 is going to be played at the Bason Reserve, Wellington on the 21st of December 2019.
The Wellington Firebirds fell short by 24 runs in the previous match as they chased 184 against the Central Stags. That was a tough match for them as a couple of their bowlers went the distance and their batting could not get going either.
Jimmy Neesham gave away 35 runs in his two overs, Hamish Bennett went for 41 in his four and Ollie Newton was expensive as well. The Basin Reserve is a fantastic batting venue and very tough on the bowlers. The Wellington Firebirds are not going to want another bowling display like they put up in their previous match.
The batting lineup of Michael Pollard, Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Michael Bracewell, and Jimmy Neesham also needs to get its act together. There have been quite a few instances of batsmen getting in but then not going on to convert that into a bigger score.
Players like Pollard, Bracewell, and Neesham probably can be given a bit more responsibility. Rachin Ravindra comes with a big reputation and is being given a chance up the order but to expect him to score in every match is not the right way to go.
The Wellington Firebirds have some good players in their side but they are struggling to get the right performances from them.

Two wins from two matches and both of them thanks to some amazing batting by the Otago Volts. This is a great opportunity for the Volts to open up some gap between themselves and the trailing teams on the league table.
Neil Broom has been in fantastic form so far and has contributed to both the wins. He got a massive score against the Auckland Aces and was off to a flier against the Northern Knights as well. With Hamish Rutherford, Nick Kelly, Dean Foxtrot, and Josh Finnie all in good form, the Otago Volts batting is looking quite formidable.
Anaru Kitchen and Michael Rippon are also quite capable of contributing with the bat down the order if needed.
Nathan Smith picked up five wickets in the previous match for just 14 runs in his 3.4 overs, an impressive performance that was helped by having a large score to defend. Jacob Duffy, Michael Rippon, Anaru Kitchen, and Michael Rae are the other bowlers that form a part of this bowling group.
The Otago Volts have a lot of confidence coming into this match. Their side is also the kinds that seem suited to the flat wickets New Zealand offers and we have no doubt that the batsmen will aggressively;y target the small boundaries at the Basin Reserve.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first although the toss usually does not have a big bearing on the result of the match.

The weather forecast for the Basin Reserve is excellent. There is no rain expected on match day and the pitch is expected to be an absolutely perfect one for batting. The boundaries at the Basin Reserve are very small and the players are going to be able to target some big hits in this match.
A score of around 180 seems to be the minimum that teams will aim for. The spinners are the ones that have had more success in the Super Smash so far and that is something to keep in mind while making your picks.
