0
173

Venue: McLean Park, Napier

 

Pitch & Conditions:

 

The last domestic game that happened on this ground was in 2016 & interestingly, it was between Otago & Stags, which Stags won by 5 runs defending 166.

Very limited data is available for this venue for ball white cricket (recent games) but overall number suggests, could be a good batting surface with early swing.

 

 

Squads:

 

 

Central Districts

Tom Bruce(c), Dane Cleaver(wk), Will Young, Dean Foxcroft, Blair Tickener, Ben Wheeler, Ajaz Patel, Williem Ludick, Josh Clarkson, George Worker, C Leopard, 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:

 

 

Stags:

 

Cleaver (Wk), Worker, Young, Bruce, Clarkson, Barnett, Ludick, Foxcroft, Wheeler, Tickner, Ajaz.

 

 

*Rance has joined the Blackcaps squad for the T20 against SL & Ajaz will replace him in the eleven.

 

 

 

Volts:

 

 

Rutherford, Wilson, Kitchen, Hicks, Cox (Wk), Finnie, Raine, Rippon, Smith, Bacon, Duffy (C)

 

 

*Broom will continue to be on the sidelines due to injury & Ben Raine will debut for Volts tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

My Dream11 Team:

 

Wk: Cleaver

(Can consider Cox too)

 

Batsmen: Rutherford, Bruce, Young

 

Allrounders: Worker, Kitchen, Raine

 

Bowlers: Wheeler, Tickner, Ajaz, Duffy.

 

 

 

Captain’s choices:

 

Worker, Kitchen should be the safest choices in small leagues. While Raine, who’ll be playing his first game isn’t a bad option either considering he usually bowls in death & is a very handy batsman too.

 

 

In GL’s,  Noema Barnett can be a very good punt as he has finally starting bowling in the last game & with Rance unavailable, he is expected to bowl more & also did well with bat in the Plunkett Shield.

 

 

 

 

Good Luck & do upvote if you like the analysis.
