OTG vs WEL Dream11 Prediction, Super Smash 2019-20, Match 23: Preview, Head to Head, Form Guide, Probable XI, Fantasy Picks & Best Dream11 Teams

OTG vs WEL Dream11 Prediction: Two of the stronger sides in the ongoing edition of Super Smash – Wellington Firebirds and Otago Volts,  faceoff each other in their second clash of the season in what promises to be an exciting contest for the cricketing fraternity.

The previous outing between the competing sides witnessed Wellington Firebirds script a nail-biting victory over Otago Volts and will ploy hard to exhibit a similar dominance at Unversity Oval.

Led by Michael Bracewell, Firebirds have won four of their last five matches in  Super Smash 2019-20 and would be coming into the contest on the back of a 52-run triumph over Northern Knights at Basin Reserve. The quartet of James Neesham, Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, and Michael Pollard have put stellar performances this season which has led Firebirds to the top of the points table.

Meanwhile, Otago Volts who are placed at the second spot with 4 wins in 7 matches will look to solidify their chances of making it to the knockouts. A win in the coming game will place them atop the points tally and help them settle the scores for their earlier defeat of the season.
