John Davies Oval, Queenstown Stadium, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Auckland vs Canterbury, 15th Match Preview (1/8/23): AUC vs CNTBRY, 15th Match, Super Smash 2022-23 – Live Cricket Score

The Otago Volts will face the Northern Knights in the fifth league game of the Super Smash 2022-23 season at Queenstown’s John Davies Oval. This venue hasn’t seen many T20 matches, so it’ll be fascinating to see how the pitch holds up. Otago Volts dropped their first match of the season and will look to make amends in this contest.

The reigning champions, the Northern Knights, also lost their opening match of the tournament. There are some foreign players on the team, including Tim Seifert and Jeet Raval, the team’s main batsmen, and Mitchell Santner, the team’s star all-rounder.

John Davies Oval pitch report

The John Davies Oval in Queenstown is one of the most picturesque cricket grounds, and this will be just the third Super Smash event held there. Queenstown is mostly utilised to host practise games for visiting teams visiting New Zealand, and seeing a competitive game here is always a sight to behold.

The air will blow through here since it is open terrain. This surface always has a tint of green to it, and the pacers will have their say in the early overs of the encounter. It settles down as the game progresses, and batting becomes rather easy later on.

Last season, two Super Smash games were played here, and both were won by the chasing teams. The average first-inning score was 148 runs, with the pacers dominating the action. The borders of this ground are small, which will benefit the hitters. After winning the toss, any captain may choose to chase.
