An in-form Otago Volts side will aim to seal a berth in the semi-finals of the Champions League T20 (CLT20) 2013 tournament, with a win over the South African side Highveld Lions in their Group A match on Sunday.

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.

On the other hand, Highveld Lions are a battered lot as they had their second drubbing against Mumbai Indians last night as they lost by seven wickets.

The Lions had lost to Rajasthan Royals by 30 runs in their second match on September 25 in Jaipur after their campaign opener against Perth Scorchers was washed out by rain.


Highveld Lions (Probable): Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Alviro Petersen (c), Thami Tsolekile, Temba Bavuma, Jean Symes, Dwaine Pretorius, Sohail Tanvir, Hardus Viljoen, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

Otago Volts (Probable): Hamish Rutherford, Neil Broom, Brendon McCullum (c), Ryan ten Doeschate, Jimmy Neesham, Nathan McCullum, Derek de Boorder (wk), Michael Bracewell, Neil Wagner, Nick Beard, Sam Wells.
