Otago vs Canterbury Tips


Canterbury are in third place after picking up their first win on the back of points for their no result against Otago, who in turn picked up their first in four matches with a last-over squeaker against Auckland.

  • Canterbury’s Cole McConchie (79 runs) is 6th in the Super Smash runs list.
  • Canterbury’s Michael Rippon has scored 58* & 67* in his last 4 whiteball innings.
  • Otago’s Dean Foxcroft scored 51 & 29 in his three Super Smash innings.
  • Otago’s Jake Gibson top-scored with 56 in the loss to Wellington.

Head-to-Head


Canterbury have won three of the last four matches between the two sides. Otago won one of those match, but their clash earlier in this season’s tournament was rained-off after just three balls had been bowled.  

Otago Form


After failing to pick up a win in their opening three matches (including a no-result in their second match, against Canterbury), Otago finally bagged a win in a dramatic last-over finish against Auckland.

Otago restricted Auckland to 151/9 off their 20 overs, Travis Muller (3/33) starring with the ball.

Hamish Rutherford (32) and Dean Foxcroft (51) set the foundation for a thrilling run chase that saw Otago home with two balls to spare.

Canterbury Form


Last season’s losing finalists lost their opening match and had their second match (against Otago) rained-off, before finally picking up a win in match three. 

Canterbury scored 185/4 off their 20 overs against Central Districts. Cole McConchie (79*) and Michael Rippon (58*) adding 133 for the fifth wicket.

Central Districts could only manage 142/8 off their 19 overs (DLS), Zakary Foulkes (2/25) and Michael Rae (2/25) doing the damage with the ball.

Verdict

I am backing Canterbury to win. I am also backing Cole McConchie to top score for Canterbury.

Dean Foxcroft is a good bet to top score for the Otago.
