With not much time to go, both the sides would want to stay in the top four until the end of the round-robin stage and that is what both sides will be hoping to achieve as the end result of the upcoming game. Otago are currently placed at fourth spot with two wins in seven games but will be displaced by Wellington Firebirds if they fail to come ahead in their upcoming encounter. Barring Northern Knights, who are 10 points ahead of next best team in the tournament, no team is certain of a semi-final spot yet. Wellington Firebirds and Otago Volts will be facing each other on 27th January at Dunedin in a bid to get into the top-four. We are almost about to hit the business end of the tournament in the ongoing Burger Kings Super Smash and the table is still wide open.

Wellington, on the other hand, have not got the start they would have wanted. They faced a big defeat in the opening match of the season against the Knights before their next game against Auckland Aces was washed out. Wellington will be playing under more pressure which is another reason why we feel that Otago have a better chance of emerging victorious here. But they will be aware of the fact that they have not been able to beat Wellington Firebirds in their previous three completed meetings. Though they will be playing at their home ground, having lost two of their last four completed matches here won't give them much confidence. Otago Volts have made an ideal start to their Super Smash campaign, beating Canterbury Kings by five wickets in Sunday's encounter.

Who will win OTG vs WEL?

Otago won the toss and decided to bowl first, but soon found things going south with DJ Bell-Drummond and Glenn Phillips tonking their bowlers around. Their last match was a week ago where Auckland Aces just edged them by four runs. However, the lack of control from them in the middle overs was clear as the likes of Raine, Hicks, and Smith leaked runs which allowed Aces to pile up 184 runs on the board. Duffy dismissed Phillips in the fifth over and Viljoen followed it up with a ripper to get rid of DJ Bell-Drummond in the seventh.

Wellington will also have high expectations from their wicketkeeper Blundell who cracked a couple of half-centuries last season. Their batting seems reliant mainly on Devon Conway, Adam Hose and Tom Blundell. Patel took nine wickets in as many matches last term and the off-spinner was the pick of the bowlers in the last game with figures of 2-39 from four overs. Skipper Bennett was the most economical bowler, conceding 28 runs off his four overs, and he will be looking to lead from the front once again. Hamish Bennett, James Neesham and Jeetan Patel form the major threat in this bowling attack. Conway and Hose scored 45 and 36 respectively in the tournament opener against the Knights and it will be crucial from the team's perspective that at least one of them goes on to score big.

In the last match of Otago, they have to face a bad weather condition and match points were given equally to both team, but if we see that match Otago was gonna win easily. Now, this is the second match for Otago and looking at preview and prediction Otago will win this match to get top position on point table. so according to our guru analysis say that Otago is favorite for 5thToday match Prediction.

The Aces eventually won the match with six wickets in hand and more than two overs to spare. All Aces needed was - to bat responsibly which they did to perfection and thereby denied Firebirds to sneak into the game. Although they started off brilliantly with the ball by picking Martin Guptill on the first delivery of the second innings, they couldn't put pressure on star-studded batting lineup of Auckland Aces.


The team's bowling department looks well-oiled with Ollie Newton, Jeetan Patel and Ben Sears all exhibiting good form. Newton, with ten wickets in six games, is amongst the season's top five bowlers while Sears has six wickets in three games including a four-fer against Canterbury Kings. Their top three - Devon Conway, Michael Bracewell and Adam Hose - have shown good form this Super Smash and the team will be counting on them to score the big runs against Otago Volts. Patel has bowled well occasionally and the team will need the off-spinner to lend good support to Newton and Sears. However, Wellington will also want James Neesham and Tom Blundell to step up. Hose has hit two fifties this season and is averaging close to 49. Bracewell is currently the second-best batsman in the competition with 245 runs which includes three half-centuries, one of which was a magnificent 29-ball 60 in the reverse encounter.

Although there were a few little cameos from their late order, it proved to be a little too late as they finished four runs short of Aces' total. Unlike Aces, the Volts got off to a poor start and lost two wickets in the second over with just eight runs on the board. With wickets falling at regular intervals, they always looked one-step behind in the chase.

Wellington Firebirds may have faced defeats in their last couple of games but they have quite a few of their players in top form. However, they will be under slightly more pressure as they are coming without a win in their last five matches. Both the teams lost their last match and will be looking to get back on the winning track and gain some momentum as the tournament heads into its business end. Otago Volts have the home advantage on their side and they defeated Canterbury Kings at this ground in their very first game of the season. The Firebirds seem to be slightly ahead of the Volts on both batting and bowling front which is why we feel they are better placed to win this match.
