Match: Otago Volts vs Central Stags, Match 11
Date: 8th January 2021, 07:40 AM
Venue: University Oval, Dunedin.
The pitch in Dunedin in the Super Smash has favoured batsmen, especially in the latter half of games. With the ball coming onto the bat nicely, batsmen should put good runs on the board.
However, the pacers should get some initial swing with the new ball. And the spinners might also play a part while bowling in the second innings.
The chasing teams have won most Super Smash games at this venue, so the captain winning the toss may like to bowl first.
