CS vs OV Team Previews

Central Districts

The Central Districts team completed their last match in the tournament just a while earlier against the Wellington Firebirds. Wellington defeated them in this game by a margin of four wickets. Batting first, the Central Districts team scored 158 runs for the loss of as many as seven wickets from their quota of twenty overs. The Wellington Firebirds chased this target down with five balls and four wickets to spare. The Central Districts team was off to a bad start, losing the wicket of Bayley Wigging in the first over for naught.

Will Young has a quick fifty from 33 balls with two sixes and four fours. There no other notable contributions from other batters although the skipper Dane Cleaver hit a cautious 29 from 27 balls. Many other batters, such as Tom Bruce, Doug Bracewell, and William Clark, got a start but could not convert it into a big score. This target provided a challenge for the Central District’s bowlers because of Bevan Small's bowling. He picked up four wickets from his four overs for just 22 runs. But this effort was not enough to get the Central Districts a win.

Otago Volts

The Otago Volts played their last game in the competition against Northern Districts. They won this game easily by a huge margin of eight wickets. Batting first, Northern Districts scored 128 runs from their overs. This target was nowhere close to being a competitive one. The Otago Volts' top-order batters chase it quickly with 18 balls and eight wickets to spare. The Otago all-rounder Glenn Phillips was awarded Player of the Match for his effort of 53 runs from 30 balls. He also picked up a wicket during the ND innings.

The Otago Volts bowling attack was right on the money for the side and restricted the Northern Districts team to a score of 128 runs all out from 18.3 overs. Jacob Duffy was the pick of the bowlers for Northern Districts, picking up four wickets for 19 runs from his 3.3 overs. He was well-supported by Jake Gibson, who picked up three wickets for 19 runs from three overs. Even though Otago Volts lost the wicket of Hamish Rutherford early, the skipper Dean Foxcroft and Glenn Phillips ensured that there was no collapse and the team got across the line comfortably.

CS vs OV Toss Prediction

This venue, McLaren Park in Napier, will help the fast bowlers, especially early on in the match. But the wicket slows down as the game progresses, and scoring quick runs might be tough on this track. All-in-all batting first might be a good idea here.

Pitch and Conditions

As many as 16 domestic T20 games have been played here. The side batting first has won eleven games, while the team that batted second has won five. The average first innings number of runs scored at this venue is 175. Even the spinners can exploit the conditions in the second innings when the surface has gone slow.

We expect bright and sunny weather during the afternoon session of this contest. But there is a possibility of getting showers in the evenings. The temperatures during this contest will remain close to 20 degrees. There is every possibility of having a cloud cover to help the seamers get lateral movement.
