OTG vs AUK Dream11 Predictions
Ford Trophy, 2018
Otago Volts vs Auckland Aces, Match 19 | OTG vs AUK WHO WILL WIN
The 19th match of the 2018-19 Ford Trophy will see defending champions Auckland Aces take on Otago Volts in what is a crucial encounter for the former.
Imperious Otago aim fourth successive win; Aces look to get their campaign back on track
Auckland Aces campaign has hit a roadblock in the past few games. After going down to Wellington Firebirds by 120 runs, another insipid batting effort saw them get hammered by Central Districts by 170.
Chasing 296, Auckland Aces never got going, losing wickets at regular intervals to get bowled out for a paltry 125 with Michael Barry top-scoring with a 58-ball-36.
They’ll have a task on hand as they strive to get back to winning ways against a confident Otago Volts unit, who come into this game on the back of a three-match winning streak.
Their last game resulted in a seven-run win against the Firebirds where they successfully defended 218 thanks to skipper Jacob Duffy’s 5-38.
With the Aces batting under the pump, the onus will be on Sean Solia, Michael Barry and Craig Cacopha to spearhead their batting line-up against a potent Otago attack.
Venue:- Bert Sutcliffe Oval, Lincoln
Match Timing:- Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 03:30 AM IST
