Otago and Wellington will lock horns at University Oval, Dunedin on Sunday morning in the 24th fixture of Super Smash T20. This will be the second time in this edition when both the sides will come face to face.
Both the sides are sitting in the second half of the points table and would be looking to gain some momentum with a couple of wins. While both the sides have played 7 encounters each, they have only managed two wins apiece so far. With just three more games remaining, each side needs a couple of quick wins to cruise up the ladder and secure a spot in the next round.
Both the sides locked horns at Basin reserve Wellington where Otago turned out to be the winner by 1 run in a close encounter. Batting first, after winning the toss, Otago posted 167 runs on the board with Anaru Kitchen’s fifty and handy knocks from Neil Broom and Shawn Hicks. For Wellington, James Neesham was the pick of the bowler finishing at 4-24.
Coming to chase, Devon Conway (47 of 37) and M Bracewell (60 of 29) gave a great start to Wellington but the side fell short by just 1 run and finished at 166-9 in the allotted overs.
With both the sides coming face to face once again, an interesting battle is expected to take place.
