Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Dream11 Super Smash 2019-20 - Auckland v Otago
The 7th match of the Super Smash 2019-20 will be played between Auckland and Otago at the University Oval in Dunedin.
Auckland kicked off their Super Smash 2019-2020 campaign with a match against Otago on their home ground at the Eden Park Outer Oval. Their next match against Canterbury was washed out due to rain.
This will be a repeat of their first encounter against Otago. In that game, the team's bowlers were not up to the mark as they conceded as many as 210 runs.
William Somerville and Kyle Jamieson were the main culprits, each of whom went at more than 10 runs per over. Mitchell McClenaghan picked up two wickets but he too conceded runs at 9.50.
Auckland batsmen then came out all guns blazing with Martin Guptill and Glenn Phillips standing out. After Guptill was dismissed for 46, Philips carried on to score an unbeaten ton.
Otago got off to a good start. Their openers Hamish Rutherford and Neil Broom added 84 runs in just eight overs. While Rutherford was dismissed for a well made 23-ball 52, Broom went on to blast 93 before getting dismissed.
Dean Foxcroft also added some quick runs towards the end to take the team to 210. Their bowling was not that impressive. Nathan Smith picked up two wickets but it were figures of 4-20-2 from Michael Rippon which stood out. Despite the bowlers conceding 197 runs, they won by 13 runs.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Auckland - Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, Glenn Phillips (wk), Mark Chapman, Craig Cachopa (c), Corey Anderson, Sean Solia, Ronnie Hira, William Somerville, Mitchell McClenaghan, Kyle Jamieson
