Weather: There is some rain forecast for the day with some thunderstorms throughout the afternoon. According to Accuweather, things should clear up later.
Otago have been one of the most exciting teams of the tournament. From their stint in the qualifiers to the high drama of a Super Over against the Lions, the men from New Zealand have been the dark horses of the Champions League T20.
Currently sitting in second place in Group A, the Volts have a chance to take their destiny into their own hands on Tuesday. A win over Rajasthan on their home turf will seal their place in the semifinal.
Should they lose, they will have to keep their eyes firmly on the match between the Perth Scorchers and the Mumbai Indians on Wednesday.
If Otago loses, it will all be down to net-run rate between them and Mumbai, should Mumbai beat the Scorchers.
For Rajasthan, who have already secured a semifinal berth, a win means they earn a home game in the final four playoffs.
With both teams unbeaten in the league stage, Tuesday's contest will certainly be tightly contested.
Pravin Tambe has played just two games for Rajasthan in the tournament, but he finished with figures of 4-for-15 and 2-for-17 in those two games. He's a youngster with just five games under his belt, an average of 17.14 in all of those, and he's a player many don't know much about.
If he gets the nod to the starting XI, the leggie has a real chance to make a name for himself.
Neil Broom's unbeaten 117 against the Scorchers was a revelation, and Ian Butler has been impressive with the ball. As a unit, Otago have performed well with players backing each other up when the heat is on.
