New Zealand’s premier T20 competition, the Super Smash is well and truly running. Now the competition leads us into a wonderful town of Alexandra, where the Otago Volts hosts Wellington Firebirds in the 7th match of the tournament. Let us now look at OV vs WF Dream11 Prediction team for todays match, top fantasy picks, match preview, probable playing XI and the favourites to win the match.
The teams are coming off from a rain affected last matches which saw both their respective games getting washed out without any result.
Both teams started off the tournament facing each other and victory was with the Firebirds that time. So clearly the Firebirds will be feeling good about this contest after a convincing win over the Volts. Opener Tim Robinson with his magnificent 139 (64) made all the noise in the match as he helped his team amass the highest score at Basin Reserve with 234 on board.
On the other hand, Otago Volts will be happy about seeing a point to their name albeit it came off from an abandoned game. Barring the performance of Jake Gibson with the bat, there’s nothing to take out from their last game. The Volts will be keenly looking towards their captain, Dean Foxcroft, with an average of 43 in his last 10 games to step up with the bat and a better effort from the bowlers to win the game.
