CTB vs OTG Dream11 Prediction: Canterbury Kings will take on Otago Volts in the Eliminator-Final Match of the Ford Trophy.
Canterbury Kings will take on Otago Volts in the Eliminator-Final Match of Ford Trophy which will be played at Hagley Oval in Christchurch. This match is expected to be a ripper as both the teams are equally strong and will welcome their players from the A team too. The return of Hamish Rutherford and Michael Rae will be beneficial for Otago’s side whereas Ed Nuttal will be back for the Canterbury. The winner of this game will face Auckland in the finals whereas the loser will bow out of the tournament.
Hagley Oval’s track has been quite decent for batting. The average batting score at this ground is 262 runs but the chasing record is very poor in this ground. The team winning the toss would be tempted to bat in this important fixture.

CTB vs OTG Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
M.Renwick (Price 8.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad as he has been in very decent form lately and will play in the top 4 in the batting order.
[Cam Fletcher will play lower down the order and that’s why he is dropped]
CTB vs OTG Dream11 Batsmen
Chad Bowes (Price 9.5):- Chad Bowes is the 3rd highest wicket-taker of the tournament and he also scored a century in the last game. He is in a very good form and will be an asset to the team.
Stephen Murdoch (Price 9):- Murdoch has been a very solid player for the Kings. He bats at number 3 and is a very decent player at that position. He would want to continue his good form.
Hamish Rutherford (Price 9.5):- Hamish Rutherford will be back for the Volts after missing 3 games due to the “A” team tour. He scored a century in his last game for the Volts and he would again want to give a solid start to the team.
Neil Broom (Price 10):- Broom has been in very solid form in the tournament. He is the 4th highest run-scorer with just 8 games under his belt. He also scored a century in the last game and would want to continue his golden form.
Nick Kelly (Price 9):- Kelly has been a top-notch player for the Volts and he has been a quite aggressive player for them. He is in the list of top-10 highest run-scorers of the league.
CTB vs OTG Dream11 All-rounders
Andrew Ellis (Price 9.5) and Brett Hampton (Price 9.5) will be the all-rounders in our team. Ellis has been wonderful with bowl as he is the 2nd highest wicket-taker of the league and also an asset with the bat whereas Foxcroft is a brilliant batsman and also has 9 wickets under his belt.
[It was difficult to keep Michael Rippon out but his price is quite high]
CTB vs OTG Dream11 Bowlers
Matt Henry (Price 9) will be our pick form the Kings as we all know what Matt Henry offers. He is back after his injury and has a brilliant record of taking wickets in the powerplays.
Michael Rae (Price 8) and Matt Bacon (Price 8) will be the bowlers from the Volts to complete our squad as Rae is back after the “A” tour whereas Bacon has also been a decent bowler in his price. The price is one of the main reasons behind picking these 2 players.
