Doug Bracewell (55 runs) and Leopard (18 runs) score runs at a rapid pace to take their team to a massive total of 223 runs.

Blair Tickner, Doug Bracewell, and Joey Field combined together to reduce opposition to 56/5 in 10 overs.

Joey Field – Field has bowling figures of 2/26 & 2/32 in the two matches played so far.  He will look to continue his impressive form with the ball in the upcoming matches too.

Central Stags Predicted Playing XI:

Auckland Aces Preview

Auckland batting unit has performed well scoring 170+ runs in both matches. Ben Horne and Sean Solia have come up 50+ knocks so far. William Donnell, Robert Donnell, and Graham Beghin have contributed with crucial 20+ cameos to build momentum in the middle. Auckland batting unit needs to continue their good form with more than one player posting a big score.

Auckland bowlers were taken for a lot of runs in both the matches played so far. They gave away 219 runs in their last match. Glenn Philips was the only bowler to have decent outing with bowling figures of 4-0-22-2 when rest of the bowling unit went for runs at over 11 RPO.

Top players to bet on:

Sean Solia – Sean Solia is in good touch with score of 75 & 30 in the two matches played so far. He will need to get quick runs at the top to put pressure on the opposition bowlers early on.

Danru Ferns – Ferns have taken 5 wickets in the two matches but his economy rate of 10.5 RPO is a big worry for the team. He must look to restrict the run flow in the upcoming matches to help his team restrict the opposition.

Auckland Aces Predicted Playing XI:

Graeme Beghin, Glenn Phillips, Sean Solia, William O Donnell, Robert ODonnell (c), Ben Horne (wk), Bradley Rodden, William Somerville, Olly Pringle, Ben Lister, Danru Ferns

Weather Conditions

New Plymouth has a hot and sunny weather on the match day. We expect no disturbances on the weather front in this match.

Venue Details

Pukkekura Park is a batting paradise and has shorter boundaries which will make life difficult for batsmen. Last match had a match tally of over 400+ runs at this venue. Bowlers will need to execute their plans to perfection as they have no margin of error on this track.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 4-1 win-loss record in the league so far. Teams are posting big scores on board and chasing teams failing to will the matches owing to run rate pressure building up.   

CS vs AA Winning Prediction

Central Districts will be high on confidence after their win in the last match. They have good batting unit and bowling attack alongside home conditions to give them the edge in this contest. Auckland team has a superb batting unit with 4-5 different players contributing with the bat. Bowling is their biggest worry as they have leaked way too many runs in both the matches played so far. We expect Central Districts to win this match.

Central Stags will win the match
