The 4th match of the Super Smash 2019-20 will be played between Northern Knights and Otago at the Seddon Park, Hamilton.
The match starts at 7:10 PM local time (6:10 AM GMT) (11:40 AM IST).
Otago got off to a great start with a win against Auckland in their opening game of Super Smash 2019-20 and will be eager to replicate their form in the upcoming match as well. They will yet again bank on their experienced opening pair of Hamish Rutherford and Neil Broom, who did a commendable job in the 1st match. But, their bowling looked pretty out of touch that, who gave away 197 runs in stipulated 20 overs and they have to come up with a strong effort in the upcoming match.
Northern Knights players failed to perform well in the season opener because of which they had to suffer a defeat by 120 runs. They will look to make a way back onto the winning track. They have a good batting line up that comprises of Dean Brownlie, Anton Devcich and Joe Carter, who will look to pile some big runs and help their side to win the match against Otago.
There are chances of rain in the morning but it will not affect the length of the match. However, the temperature is expected to deviate between 17 and 23 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at Seddon Park is expected to go in favour of the batsmen, who will look to pile some big runs against the bowlers. However, the fast bowlers will get some assistance but in the early part of the game but they need to bowl in the right areas to get a wicket. On the other hand, the team winning the toss will look to bat first as far as international games are concerned.
Both the teams haven’t officially announced their squads yet for this match.
