OV vs CS Dream11 Team Prediction | Super Smash | 11th match | 8th Jan 2021
Otago Volts will take on Central Stags in the 11th match of the tournament. Otago is coming into this match after an excellent performance against the Northern Districts where the team went on to win by 2 wickets in the final over. However, the best thing about that match is that Hamish Rutherford finally showed a glimpse of form and top-scored for the team. This is positive news for Otago who will be looking forward to witnessing more of Rutherford. The team so far has two wins and a loss from their three matches.
On the other hand, Central Stags are dependent just too much on George Worker. The team has won two matches and in both the matches, George Worker had scored half-centuries and when he had failed, the team also had failed. Stags have two losses and they went on to lose their last match against Northern Districts. Let’s go through our Dream11 Team Prediction for the upcoming game.

OV vs CS Dream11 Team News:
While the team will be glad that Hamish Rutherford could find the form at the right time, the team still has concerns when it comes to balance and inconsistency. Llew Johnson starred in the first match but since then he has been struggling to convert his starts. Neil Broom, the team’s most capped player has done well in the powerplays for the team but is having trouble when it comes to long innings. In most of the matches, he went on to lose partners early which had added more pressure on him. The team’s most experienced all-rounder Anaru Kitchen is trying way too much but nothing has seemed to work for him so far. The team will be looking to address all these issues as they get down on the field on Friday.
Central Stags, as mentioned earlier, are way too dependent on George Worker. If he fails, there is no one to stand up for the team and nobody has taken up that responsibility. However, the bowlers have done well considerably. While Blair Tickner has made sure to pick early wickets, Ajaz Patel and Jayden Lennox has produced dot balls and has added pressure on the opponent. Kieran Noema-Barnett, who was one of the stand-out performers in the previous edition, is yet to do wonders here.

OV vs CS Dream11 Team Prediction: Who will win the match
Otago Volts will begin the contest as the favorites but a lot will depend on their opening pair and the bowling as well. The team will be hoping that Anuaru Kitchen finds his form real quick as the team is missing a finisher here. On the other hand, George Worker once again will be the key player for Central Stags. If Otago can get rid of him as early as possible, they have a great chance of winning the match.
