OTG vs CD Dream11 Prediction

Super Smash, 2018-19 | Otago Volts vs Central Stags, 14th Match Preview | OTG vs CD Who Will Win

The 14th match of Super Smash will be contested at the McLean Park in Napier between Central Stags and Otago Volts. Both teams would face each other in successive matches after the first encounter was washed out due to persistent rains.

After playing four games, Volts have 2 wins to their name, while Central Stags have registered a single win and lost two. We will witness some shuffles in the points table as these are still the early days into the competition, though the current points table scenario suggests Volts are placed third while Stags are standing at the fifth position.

Otago’s two wins came against Canterbury Kings and Wellington Firebirds by 5 wickets and 1 run respectively while Central Stags only win came in their tournament opener against the defending champions Northern Knights by 5 wickets.
