Ford Trophy, 2018

Central Districts vs Wellington Firebirds, Match 20 l CD vs WEL WHO WILL WIN

The 20th match of the ongoing Ford Trophy will see Central Districts lock horns with table-toppers Wellington Firebirds in what is expected to be a pulsating encounter on
Central Districts shrugged off their fourmatch winless streak in some style as they quashed aside defending champions Auckland Aces (by 170 runs) with disdain. CD'S imperious batting effort which saw them post a competitive 8-295 in 50 overs was backed up by an astounding bowling effort spearheaded by Ben Wheeler’s 4-24, to bowl the Aces for a paltry 125 in 30.1 overs.

They’ll look to build on the winning momentum but will have to do an encore of the last game when they take on table.toppers Wellington Firebirds, who will look to
shrug the blip 0f the last match where against a rampaging Jacob Duffy (5-38),
their batsmen failed to chase down 218
despite Jimmy Neesham’s 105-ball-100

Wicket-keeper Both Ma'ava Ave and Lauchie Jones have not yet set the stage on fire in the tournament. You can opt for either of them in your Fantasy XI.

Batsmen Greg Hay scored his career-best score of 85 in the last game while Dean Foxcroft's 90 was crucial in Central District scoring 8-295. From Wellington, Andrew Fletcher has racked up 375 runs at an average of 75.00 and is currently the leading run-scorer in the tournament. Michael Bracewell (268 runs at 53.600 is also a prudent choice for your Dream11 side.

All-rounders James Neesham scored a hundred in the losing cause in the last game. The aII-rounder is the third-leading scorer of the tournament with 345 runs at an average of 69.00 and has also chipped in with wickets at crucial intervals for his side. Ben Wheeler, who took a match-winning fourwicket haul in the last game and Willem Luddick is also a prudent choice.

Bowlers With 15 wickets in six games, Hamish Bennett is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament while Ollie Newton (10 wickets at 17.80) claimed a five-wicket haul
in the last game. Ian McPeake is also a good
bet for your Dream11 team.
