OTG vs WEL Dream11 Prediction

Super Smash, 2018-19 | Otago Volts vs Wellington Firebirds, 24th Match Preview | OTG vs WEL Who Will Win

Two teams who have the same amount of wins from the same number of games will collide against each other in the 24th match of Super Smash League 2018-19. We are talking about Otago Volts and Wellington Firebirds who have won 2 of their 7 games and are placed on the fourth and fifth position on the points table.

Both Wellington and Otago have just 3 games left and one of them can progress to the finals only of that particular team wins all their remaining matches. The two sides have had a meeting before as well where a nail-biting encounter ended up with Otago winning by a run.

It was a last ball thriller which was eventually won by Otago after Luke Woodcock was run out on the last ball where 3 runs were needed and he could complete only a single run.
