AA vs WF Team Previews

Auckland Aces

The Auckland team played its last match in the competition against Otago Volts. This was the 10th game of the competition and was played in Alexandra earlier yesterday. The Auckland team batted first in this contest to score 151 runs for the loss of nine wickets. The Otago Volts chased this target successfully with three wickets to spare. They reached the target in the last over of the game. It was a closely fought game, and the Otago Volts managed to hang onto their nerves for a win.

The Auckland batting effort was supported by several batters in their middle order. But none of them went on to register a big score. The top run-getter for Auckland was their skipper, Robert O'Donnell. He scored thirty-five runs from 38 balls with four fours. Other batters like Ryan Harrison, Sean Solia, Cole Briggs, and William O’Donnell looked good while they lasted but did not score big. The Auckland bowling attack made a spirited defense, with Louis Delport leading the bowling charge with three wickets. Danru Ferns also picked up two.
