Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Dream11 Super Smash 2019-20 - Wellington v Otago
The 9th match of the Super Smash 2019-20 will be played between Wellington and Otago at the Basin Reserve in Wellington.
Otago have won two out of their three matches while one has ended without a result. In their first match of the season, 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.
In their next match against Northern Knights, Nick Kelly, Dean Foxcroft and Josh Finnie were their top batsmen while Nathan G Smith picked up a 5-wicket haul to take the team to a 43-run victory.
Their most recent game against Auckland was washed out.
Wellington beat Canterbury by 6 wickets in their first game. They were up against Central Districts in their next match which they lost by 24 runs. Jeetan Patel was their most impressive bowler with figures of 4-30-2.
Michael Pollard, James Neesham and Jimmy Gibson then looked good for the side but could not capitalise on the starts.
