Pitch and Conditions

This game will be a day-night affair. There are some heavy showers predicted during the contest. But the relative humidity will also be on the higher side. The temperatures during this contest will be close to 21 degrees. The presence of rain may bring the D/L equation into play. The cloud cover during the game will help the quicks get lateral movement.

The Eden Park ground in Auckland makes use of a drop-in pitch. It has an established reputation for offering help to the fast bowlers. They are expected to get seam movement, which, together with overcast conditions, might result in a low-scoring game dominated by the bowlers.

AA vs CK Betting Tips

Both these sides have done well in the group stages of the competition. They finished first and second in the points table. But Auckland Aces won one game more in this phase of the tournament. They are also playing this final at home. So, we expect the top-ranked side of the competition, Auckland Aces to win the final and lift the trophy.
