Otago vs Northern Knights 23rd Match Prediction

-posted on Nov 15, 2018

Match Description :

Otago has won 5 in 7 matches in The Ford Trophy 2018 so far and are placed at number 2 in the points table. They have won their last 3 matches, and defeated Auckland in the last match chasing 251. Northern Knights have won 3 in 7 matches and have lost 3. Their 3 wins have come in last 3 consecutive matches and they are now placed at number 3 in the points table just under Otago. Given the venue, toss will play a key role and the team batting first could have an advantage if they score above 250 runs. Otago has a strong bowling attack and have defended successfully in their previous matches. Otago’s bowling is the reason why they stand a little higher chance of winning over Northern Knights.
