Probable Playing XI
Otago has won one and lost one with their previous game against Wellington not going according to plan. Otago will depend heavily on its star duo of Anaru Kitchen and Dean Foxcroft. Niel Broom is also capable of scoring big runs and will be key in the middle order. They have a lot of variety in their bowling unit with the spin of Michael Ripping complementing the likes of Jacob Duffy and Matthew Bacon.

Canterbury comes into this game on the back of a win against Northern Knights. No changes are expected with Jack Boyle and Todd Astle in fine form. Their bowling unit is their stronger suit with Ed Nuttall and Andrew Ellis leading the attack. They have ample batting depth as well which holds them in good stead heading into this game.
