When and where:
Otago will take on Canterbury in the Super Smash T20, on (February 2) at Hagley Oval, Christchurch, New Zealand.
Otago Volts are the second last placed team in the league table and it has been down to them being shambles more often than not this season. They have won only two games so far and it has been a difficult campaign so far. The team has not been able to capitalise on a good performance, and it is clear that a massive shuffle is needed in the squad as the quality of players too is not on par to the standard of cricket that is being played by the top teams in the Super Smash T20.
Meanwhile, Canterbury Kings are in an even worse predicament. The team is bottom last in the league table, and have lost seven of the eight games played. They truly have been beaten and bruised by everyone in the league. Except for the win against Auckland exactly a month ago, the team has not like a franchise who deserves to have a spot in this elite competition, and they too will be looking to make some big changes to the squad before the start of the new campaign next time.
The match will begin at 8:30 AM IST.
