With their first match being abandoned due to rain, Auckland Aces and Canterbury Kings would battle it out in their second faceoff of the season all set to take place amidst the conditions of Eden Park Outer Oval.
Hosts Auckland Aces in spite of being a star-studded lineup haven't performed to their potential and it is about time the Craig Cachopa-led side stands upon the occasion. Meanwhile, Canterbury Kings have been struggling as well and are rightly seated at the 5th spot with a win, two losses and a no-result under their belt. While bowling has reaped benefits for the Kings, it is their batting that has been a cause of concern of late.
Opener Martin Guptill (143 runs in 4 innings) and Glenn Phillips (146 runs in 4 innings) have had some successes with the bat in the concurrent season of Super Smash and will look to capitalize from the very delivery at Eden Park Oval. Colin Munro has had a terrible run so far and would be wishing to get back the hitting ability in the coming contest.
Skipper Craig Cachopa (77 runs in 4 innings) has been quite handy with the bat this season and along with fellow middle-order batsman, Mark Chapman would aim to keep the scoreboard ticking for the Aces.
Spinner Ronnie Hira (5 wickets in 6 innings) is leading the bowling charts for Auckland Aces. Among the remaining bowlers, pacers Mitchell McClenaghan (1/24) and William Somerville (0/23) put up economical performances in the previous outing and would look to better themselves in the upcoming duel.

The batting department would be hoping the likes of Chad Bowes (1,078 runs in 43 T20s) and Stephen Murdoch (1,019 runs in 49 T20s) to put up a stellar run tally on board. Cam Fletcher (37) and Leo Carter (25-ball 33) were getting those boundaries even at crunch moments in the match against Otago and would eye to emulate a similar show in the upcoming feud.
Bowling wise, Cole McConchie (5 wickets in 4 innings) and Blake Coburn (5 wickets in 4 innings) have managed to get under the skin of their rivals on quite a few occasions. Andrew Ellis (3 wickets in 4 innings), with his pacer prowess, has been second in command and will look to topple the Aces' top-order alongside McConchie and Coburn.

Clouds are likely to hover around the stadium in the first half with the temperature fluctuating between 19-22 degrees in Celsius. There will be clear skies in the later stages of the contest, making the chase easier for the batters.
The previous match played at Eden Park Outer Oval witnessed the team batting first posting 133 runs on board which was eventually chased down by a margin of 7 wickets. Taking into account the current set of conditions, any score above 160 could be considered as a par total at this venue.
The slightly overcast conditions in the initial stages might offer some assistance to the pacers in getting the required swing and seam. Not to forget, the recently played T20 at this venue was won by the team batting second and thus, one would expect the toss winning team to bowl first on this occasion.
Although the upcoming T20 could be expected to be a neck to neck encounter, the results are likely to fall in Auckland Aces' favor. The Aces possess some of the fiercest T20 campaigners in their armory who once set in the middle could put a herculean total on board. Canterbury Kings may have a competent bowling attack but the lack of hard-hitters makes their chances of victory quite slim in the coming encounter.
