Ford Trophy, 2018

Auckland Aces vs Wellington Firebirds 14th Match | AUK vs WEL WHO WILL WIN

As the caravan of the 2018 Ford Trophy rolls on, Auckland Aces will lock horns with Wellington Firebirds in what is expected to be a riveting encounter at the Basin Reserve.

Auckland and Wellington eye supremacy

The Aces shrugged off the blip they’d suffered at the hands of Canterbury after they successfully defended 5-270 thanks yo Danru Ferns’ 4-35.

Batting first, Auckland’s innings was set-up by a pristine knock by Craig Cacopha, who stroked a 122-ball-106 to take his side out of troubled waters after three early wickets saw them slip to 3-87 inside 20 overs. Cachopa a 130-run stand for the fourth wicket with Donnell (48) and then with Beghin (32) to post 5-260 in 20 overs.

Canterbury’s batting effect was spearheaded by a 109-ball-96 by Chad Bowes but Danru Ferns (4-35) wrecked through their top-order and despite fifties Cam Fletcher (63) and Henry Shipley (51) lower down the order, they eventually fell short by three runs to hand Auckland their third win in four matches.

Wellington Firebirds, on the other hand, come into this game after completing a 39-run win over the Northern Knights in the last fixture.

After losing to Auckland by 13 runs early on in the tournament, Wellington has been on a roll quashing aside Otago by a record 193 runs and then overcoming NK by 39.

While Andrew Fletcher (125 & 64) has been the cornerstone with the bat, James Neesham (86 & 3-17) and Hamish Bennett (2-15 & 4-15) have spearheaded their bowling prowess, and they’ll.hope to emulate it and avenge the loss against the Aces.
