This will be the fifteenth match of the tournament. The Volts won their previous game which had a nail biting finish where Neil Broom and Nick Kelly were the star performers with the bat and the wickets were shared by Nathan Smith, Jacob Duffy, Micahel Rae and Michael Rippon. They are placed at the top of the table and will come into this game with immense confidence. On the other hand the Kings are placed fifth in the table. The Kings have a few good players in Cole McConiche, Chad Bowes , Blake Coburn and Stephen Murdoch. But it will be a huge ask for the Kings to defeat the Volts.
