Wellington Firebirds were on an unbeaten run before stuttering to a defeat against Canterbury in the last game. They would like to get back to winning ways and continue their dominant run in the Super Smash. Wellington Firebirds emerged as winners by 5 wickets the last time these two sides met.
Otago Volts, meanwhile, have had a poor outing so far this season. With only two victories from six matches, they are sixth in the standings. They would want to end their season on a good note and get a few more victories under the bag.
