- The Central Stags come into this match sitting at the top-of-the-table in the 2022/23 Super Smash with four victories and one defeat, as well as a no result, in their opening six matches.
- Last time out, the Stags managed to defeat the Auckland Aces via the DLS method. They conceded 191/8 in the first innings but managed to reach 108/2 after 9.2 overs, 29 runs ahead of the DLS target.
- After six matches so far this season, Otago Volts have had quite an inconsistent campaign as they sit fourth in the six-team table with two victories, two defeats, a dramatic tie as well as a no result.
- They do come into this on the back of improved form, though, after starting the Super Smash with back-to-back defeats. Their most recent outing saw them chase the Wellington Firebirds’ target of 121 in 19.2 overs with five wickets in hand.
Both of these sides will be pleased to return to Super Smash action; not necessarily because of poor form in The Ford Trophy but simply because of their impressive and/or improved T20 form before that short interruption. With Will Young at number three, the Central Stags have been very impressive with the bat, scoring over 200 twice and over 180 once as well as that aforementioned 108/2 off 9.2 overs. Despite Otago’s improvement, this should still end up in a home win.
