We spoke so highly about Otago Volts’ batting unit, meaning it was only befitting of us o rope in a magnitude of players from the side for this one. We begin with nick Kelly for the side after he contributed with 54 runs for his side the last time around, runs which were instrumental in seeing the side making a mockery of a tricky target.

Rippon got two wickets in that outing, both wickets which came up at crucial intervals to curtail the opposition from piling on the runs and curtailing them within an achievable score for his side.
Elsewhere, the opposition will find representation in Andrew Ellis who op scored with 35 vital runs in the lower middle-order, ones which made all the difference at the end of the day. Collie McConchie did well with the 28 runs as well on the day to see him find representation in our side as well for this one.
