Jaipur, 28 Sept: Otago Volts, who have impressed with their performance in their campaign so far, would be looking to consolidate their position for a semifinal berth when they take on Highveld Lions in a Group A match of Champions League Twenty20 here tomorrow.
Otago are placed second in the group with six points by virtue of one win and one match being washed out in Ahmadabad while the Lions, with just two points from three matches, have an outside chance of making it to the last four.
New Zealand champions Otago have a 14 match winning streak in T20, including three in the qualifiers at Mohali and they look set for yet another victory as the Sawai Mansingh pitch here would suit their style of play.
They have a strong batting line up with opener Neil Broom, who hit a magnificent unbeaten 117 off just 56 balls against Perth Scorchers, in fine form.
Apart from Broom, they have skipper Brendon McCullum, Derek de Boorder and Ryan ten Doeschate, all of whom among runs recently and can damage the reputation of any opposition bowler on their days.
One area which they would want to do well could be their middle order which has not been tested to the hilt in the four matches they have played so far, including the qualifiers.
