Super Smash: Otago Volts Vs Central Stags Dream11 Prediction & Analysis




Venue: University Oval, Dunedin



Pitch & Conditions:



The wicket here generally tends to be on the slower side & recent Ford trophy games were no different.


Weather Update:


Forecast suggests, chances of a full 20 over game are bleak. Overs can be reduced or match can even be abandoned if weather remains the same.



Central Districts



Tom Bruce(c), Dane Cleaver(wk), Will Young, Dean Foxcroft, Blair Tickener, Ben Wheeler, Ajaz Patel, Williem Ludick, Josh Clarkson, George Worker, Seth Rance, Kieran Barnett.




Otago Volts



Jacob Duffy (c), Hamish Rutherford,Brad Wilson, Josh Finnie, Shawn Hicks, Jack Hunter, Anaru Kitchen, Ben Cox(wk), Michael Rippon, Nathan Smith, Ben Raine, Matt Bacon



Expected 11:






Rutherford, Wilson, Kitchen, Hicks, Cox (wk), Finnie, Raine, Rippon, Nathan Smith, Duffy (C), Bacon.



*Leicester’s hard hitting bowling allrounder Ben Raine will debut for Volts & can be used as a pinch hitter.





Worker, Cleaver (wk), Young, Bruce, Clarkson,   Barnett, Foxcroft, Wheeler, Ajaz, Rance, Tickner.



*Ajaz Patel will replace Murray in the final eleven.



My Dream11 Team:


Wk: Cleaver


Batsmen: Rutherford, Bruce, Young


Allrounders: Worker, Kitchen, Raine/Rippon

(Both Raine & Rippon are expected to bowl full 4 overs but Raine usually bowls in death & can be more useful with bat in T20’s)


Bowlers: Rance, Duffy, Tickner/Wheeler, Ajaz




Captain’s choices:


Worker, Kitchen combination should be the best for small leagues considering both are expected to bowl as well on a slowish wicket.

Also, Raine can be a good choice along with Young, who usually bats a bit slow but plays well in such conditions.
