Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Dream11 Super Smash 2019-20 - Knights v Otago
The 4th match of the Super Smash 2019-20 will be played between Knights and Otago at the Seddon Park in Hamilton.
Northern Knights got off to the worst possible start to their Super Smash 2019-20 campaign. They were part of the opening match against Central Districts and conceded as many as 221 runs. Only Ish Sodhi could make some impact with figures of 4-27-2.
Apart from him, all the bowlers either went at 10 or over with Daryl Mitchell giving 21 runs off just one over.
Under pressure to go hard after the bowling from ball one, the team then collapsed for just 101, within 14 overs. Anton Devcich was their top scorer with 35. Other than him, only two more batsmen could get into the double figures as the team lost by a margin of more than 100 runs.
Unlike the Knights, 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 succeeded in winning by 13 runs due to the cushion provided by the batsmen.

Northern Knights - Daniel Flynn, Dean Brownlie (c), Joe Carter, Ish Sodhi, Anton Devcich, Scott Kuggeleijn, Daryl Mitchell, Brett Hampton, Anurag Verma, Peter Bocock (wk), Matthew Fisher
