Otago vs Auckland (OTG vs AUK)

14th Match of Super Smash  will be played between Otago (OTG) and Aukland (AUK) at Molyneux Park, Alexandra. This is the 2nd match on this ground in Super Smash Series this year. Last game played on this ground was between Otago and Canterbury on 26th December, where both teams scored over 140 runs and total wicket fall was 13. This clears the picture that this ground has something for everyone. Batsman and bowlers, both have their chances to become performer of the day.


Team News:

There are going to be some big changes in both of the teams, so be prepared for that. Auckland openers Martin Guptill and Glenn Phillips will be unavailable since they have been picked up in upcoming NZ vs WI T20 matches. On the other hand James Neesham has been omitted from the squad for this match. Neel Broom is available now and he could make a come back in this match. Neel Broom doesn’t seems to be in good form but in Absence of James Neesham, he might end up playing a responsible inning for OTAGO. Anaru Kitchen will be unavailable as well as he has got into NZ T20 Squad. So, we can expect so many changes. The good thing is that, we’ll have plenty of points and limited players to pick from in our Dream11 team. We will have to keep an eye on the playing XIs and plan our Dream11 team according to that.
