The match 8 of Super Smash 2020-21 will be held at the Bay Oval ground in Mount Maunganui, played between Northern Knights and Otago. The match will be kicked off on 2nd January (Saturday) at 12:10 (GMT+6).
This match will be played by the Otago to get their campaign back on track. They began their campaign with a victory, but they lost their next match. They’re going to desperately look to win this game and see it as a chance in fact to gain a win as the Northern Knights as they’re yet to gain a victory in this tournament.
As per the weather reports, things don’t look good because there are 90 percent chances of rainfall and the temperature will stay around 20°C.
This pitch is a belter and is going to help the batters. It will be a difficult challenge for both sides to defend a total here.
