The Wellington Firebirds will be up against the Otago Volts in the sixth match of the Ford Trophy 2021-22 on Tuesday at the Basin Reserve, Wellington.

The Wellington Firebirds got off to an ideal start in their Ford Trophy 2021-22 campaign. They defended a target of 256 runs against the Otago Volts by restricting them to 242 and claiming a 13-run victory. The Firebirds will now aim to replicate that performance and come out on top once again.

On the other hand, the Otago Volts started their season with a loss against the Firebirds in the opening game.

Today’s WF vs OV Dream11 match top picks

Wicketkeeper

Finn Allen: Allen is a young and talented opening wicket-keeper batter who has the ability to take the bowlers to the cleaners. He couldn’t capitalize on the start in the previous match as he was dismissed on 23 runs but is expected to shine in this match.

Batters

Neil Broom: Broom has performed admirably so far this season with the bat. He has registered two consecutive half-centuries and will aim to make it three in a row.

Troy Johnson: Troy played a brilliant 73-run knock in the previous game to help his side reach a respectable total. The middle-order batter can pace the innings well, which makes him a top pick from the batting department.

All-rounders

Michael Rippon: Rippon has been a top all-rounder performer for the Volts this season. He has scored 44 runs with the bat and has four wickets under his belt already.

Logan van Beek: Logan is a decent bowling all-rounder who can also score some handy runs as well. He had a decent showing in the previous game as he managed to take one wicket at an economy of around 4, while also scoring some quick runs at the death.

Bowlers

Jacob Duffy: Duffy has been the most consistent bowler for the Volts. He has grabbed four wickets in two matches and will now look to add a few more to his kitty.

Peter Younghusband: Younghusband played a match-winning role for the Firebirds in the opening game. He grabbed a brilliant three-wicket haul to see his side over the line.
