OTG vs NK: With seven wins in nine outings, Northern Knights have grabbed the top spot and will directly advance to the finals. The 6 wickets defeat against Auckland in the last encounter was their second defeat of the season which came after six consecutive wins. Being one of the favourites to lift the title, Knights would be looking for a strong comeback ahead of the final clash.
On the opposite, Otago Volts have secured just two wins in nine encounters and are placed bottom second in the league standing. Volts started their campaign with two consecutive wins against Canterbury and Wellington and have failed to secure a win since then. Ahead of playing their final game tomorrow, Volts would be hoping for a win to end their campaign on a high.
