Otago Volts Vs Canterbury Kings Super Smash Dream11 Preview

0
136

Venue: University Oval, Dunedin

 

Pitch & Conditions:

 

The wicket here in the recently concluded Ford Trophy has been on the slower side & unlike every other NZ ground, hasn’t been very high scoring too.

 

 

Expected Playing 11:

 

Kings:

Bowes, Carter, Murdoch, McConchie (C), Fletcher (wk), Ellis  Jameison, Shipley, Williams, Nuttal, Benton.

 

Volts:

Rutherford, Renwick (wk), Broom, Hicks, Kitchen, Finnie, Smith, Rippon, Viljoen, Duffy (C), Hunter.

 

 

 

Dream11 Team:

 

Wk: Renwick

 

(My preferred wk would be Fletcher as he’s in brilliant touch & has performed in every format in limited opportunities that he has got. But Renwick is supposed to open while Fletcher is expected to play at 5. Therefore, Renwick is a safer pick for small leagues but do consider Fletcher when you play multiplayer leagues)

 

Batsmen: Broom, Rutherford, Bowes, Murdoch

(Alternative: Hicks)

 

Allrounders:

Rippon (opens for Netherlands in T20’s but bats too low for Volts),

McConchie: Extremely consistent in at least one aspect of the game, therefore, a must pick.

Smith: Was used as a bowling all-rounder batting at 4 & has contributed immensely with both bat & ball but his order in T20’s is uncertain.

 

Bowlers: Nuttal, Williams, Duffy.

 

 

 

Captain’s choices:

 

McConchie, Rutherford, Smith, Broom.

 

 

Good Luck.
