The Ford Trophy, 2018-19
Central Districts vs Auckland 22nd Match Preview
Central District Stags and Auckland Aces will lock horns for the second time when both the sides will meet on Friday at Lincoln.
Both the teams are placed in the second half of points table. With three wins from seven games, Auckland is placed at fourth spot with 12 points while Central Districts Stags are sitting just beneath them at fifth spot with 11 points from two wins coming off seven encounters.
When last time both the teams met at Eden Park, Auckland, Central Districts Stags turned out to be the winner by 170 runs.
Put into bat, District posted 295-8 on the scoreboard, courtesy Greg Hay’s 85 of 97 deliveries and Dean Foxcroft’s 90 of 98 deliveries. Skipper Doug Bracewell also contributed 42 runs off 31 balls. Michael Barry and Michael Snedden took three wickets apiece and were the pick of bowlers for Auckland.
In response, Auckland encountered a shaky start and lost both the openers at mere 35 runs at the board. The whole team was bowled out for 125 runs with Michael Barry being the only batter to cross 20 runs mark.
Ben Wheeler and Seth Rance were the picks of bowlers for Districts who collectively bagged seven wickets.
With batting still a bigger concern for Auckland Aces, Central Districts will be without the services of regular skipper Doug Bracewell and Seth Rance. It will be interesting to watch both the teams coming face to face once again.
