PREVIEW

 

Super Smash League has also reached its business end with only a handful of games to go. Canterbury Kings will take on the Otago Volts in what is expected to be a dead rubber match. The result will not make much of a difference in the league standings but both the teams will be charged up.

Otago Volts are placed at the second last spot in the points table with 12 points to their name. They have won a couple of games while losing 4 games in their 8 league games. Volts lost their last match against the Firebirds by 11 runs to end their hope of making it to the playoffs.

While Canterbury Kings are languishing at the bottom of the table with just four points. They could only manage to win a solitary game in their 8 outings. The Kings were thrashed by 9 wickets when they took on Auckland Aces in their last encounter.

Both the sides will face each other for the second time in this season. Canterbury Kings emerged victorious in that previous encounter by 5 wickets, riding on the back of Kyle Jamieson’s dream spell where he picked up 6 wickets for 7 runs.
