OTG vs NK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match
Hamilton, October 28 at 03:30 AM IST
Northern Knights and Otago will be looking for the first win in Ford Trophy 2018 after unsuccessful outings in their respective tournament openers.
Otago suffered defeat at the hands of Central Districts, by 37 runs, on Wednesday (Oct 24). Opting to bowl first after winning the toss, Otago bowlers could not strike early as Central Districts put on 167 runs for the opening wicket. However, they made a comeback in the middle overs to restrict Central Districts to 269/7. In the chase, all top-6 Otago batsmen got starts but could not carry on to take their side over the line.
Northern Knights' tournament opener was a thriller. Auckland all-rounder Sean Solia's unbeaten 133 was the difference between the two sides as they got to the target with two wickets in hand. Northern Knights batting let the team down in the first game. They would be hoping to put a better show with the bat here.
Both the teams have named an unchanged squad.
