On January 23, 2022, Otago Volts will lock horns with Canterbury Kings at University Oval in Dunedin. This is a dead rubber but Otago will play for their pride while Canterbury will play to gain confidence moving into the eliminator. Currently, Otago is in last place with just 6 points from 9 matches and will stay there irrespective of the result. Canterbury on the other hand is in the second spot with 24 points from nine matches.

They both previously met in the 13th match where Canterbury outplayed Otago to win the match by a margin of 36 runs. Canterbury is heading into this with a loss to the table-toppers while Otago has lost six matches on the trot coming into this.

Canterbury is unchanged from their previous game as they have confidence in their players. Tom Latham, Daryl Mitchell, and Matt Henry are the key players. 

On the other hand, Otago will give another opportunity to their players that played their last match. They are playing nearly after a week so the players will be fresh for this one. A 21-year fast bowler who initially played for Central Stags a couple of years ago, Jarrod McKay might feature in the game. Hamish Rutherford, Anaru Kitchen, and Neil Broom are the players to watch for.

Can Otago finish the campaign on a winning note or Canterbury dominate them yet again in the season? It should be a mouth-watering contest and cricket lovers will enjoy it.
