OV vs CS Team Previews

Otago Volts

The Otago team played their last game in the competition against Auckland Aces. This game was played on 14th January in Auckland. Volts lost this game to Auckland Aces by a margin of 7 wickets with 13 deliveries to spare. The Otago Volts team batted first to score a mediocre total of 138 runs from 19.3 overs. This score was nowhere close to enough as Auckland Aces chased the score in 17.5 overs for losing just three wickets. The Otago innings got off to a bad start, with both openers in the pavilion for just 11 runs. 

However, there was a good partnership between Dean Foxcroft and Max Chu for the third wicket that held the innings together. Foxcroft played the sheet anchor role to score 46 runs from 49 balls with just a couple of fours. But after the dismissal of Chu, only Ben Lockrose offered resistance, scoring 22 runs from 13 balls with two sixes and two fours. The Otago bowlers did well to get the wickets of the Auckland openers early. Jacob Duffy was the pick of the bowlers with a wicket for 15 runs from his 3.5 overs.

Central Districts

The Central Districts team also played its last game in the competition against Auckland. In this day-night affair, the Central Districts team registered a victory by a margin of 15 runs. The Central Districts side batted first in this game to score 173 runs for losing five wickets from their quota of twenty overs. This target proved too much for the Auckland Aces to handle as they could manage 158 runs for the loss of nine wickets from their 20 overs. Dane Cleaver was adjudged Player of the Match for 87 runs from 49 balls.

Although the Central Districts' innings got off to a shaky start, Dane Cleaver had other ideas in this game against the Auckland Aces. He hammered 87 runs from 49 balls with ten fours and two sixes. He was well aided by William Clark, who also scored 39 runs from 29 balls with four boundaries and one six. During their defense, the Central District’s opening ball bowlers, Doug Bracewell and Bevan Small, were right on the money and picked up three wickets each to leave the opposition innings in tatters. The CD team will look at these bowlers to do well again in this contest.
