The bottom two sides in the Super Series will be up against each other as Otago Volts face Auckland Aces in match 27 of the T20 league in New Zealand. This match will be held at the picturesque Eden Park, Auckland on Monday (February 01).
As the league stage has neared its conclusion, with only three more games to go, the two sides will battle for pride following a forgettable season so far. Talking about the Auckland Aces, they are languishing at the bottom with only a solitary victory from eight encounters. On the other hand, the Otago Volts aren’t far behind but yet find themselves a place on top of their opposition.
The Volts have so far earned only two wins from 8 games and hold onto the fifth position currently. In the last face-off between both sides, it was the Otago Volts who emerged on top by virtue of a comprehensive 45-run win. Otago posted a mammoth 219/7, being asked to bat first, and bundled out Auckland Aces for 174 in 19.5 overs.
