AA vs NK Team Previews

Auckland Aces

The Auckland Aces team is going into this match after a defeat in their last game against Central Districts. The Central Districts team batted first in this game to score 173 runs for the loss of five wickets. The Auckland team made a valiant attempt to chase the target in their 20 overs but could manage just 158 runs for the loss of nine wickets. The Auckland bowlers got rid of the CD openers reasonably quickly but could not make further inroads early enough. 

The pick of the bowlers in this game for Auckland Aces were their opening ball bowlers, Ben Lister and Danru Ferns. They picked up two wickets apiece from their four overs. Ben Lister was also economical and picked up two wickets for 22 runs. None of the other bowlers apart from these two could pick up wickets for Aces. The Auckland top order made a disastrous start to their innings with top four wickets back in the pavilion within the first three overs. The wicket-keeper batsman Cam Fletcher and William O’Donnell did bat well to raise a partnership but could not keep going to record a win.

Northern Knights

The Northern Districts team also lost their last game in the competition earlier today. In this day-night affair, the Canterbury Kings provided a solid thrashing to the ND team to record a victory by a margin of 90 runs. Batting first, Canterbury scored 228 runs from their twenty overs for the loss of six wickets. The Northern Districts team could manage 138 runs for the loss of seven wickets from their 20 overs. The Canterbury openers were in terrific form in this game and never allowed a whiff to the ND bowlers.

Even though Brett Hampton picked up a couple of wickets, he went for many runs. Only Kristian Clarke returned with decent figures of 4-0-27-1. Tim Pringle and Neil Wagner picked up a wicket apiece. The ND reply ran into troubled waters quickly. But Katene Clarke kept the hopes alive from one end with 32 out of 27 balls. Scott Kuggeleijn and Tim Pringle made some valuable contributions in the lower order, but these attempts were never enough to take the team to a win.
