AUK Vs WEL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: A win sees Wellington Firebirds move into first place today.
Occupying second spot in the Super Smash as things stand, for Wellington Firebirds, the impetuous couldn’t be any more profound when they take to the pitch for today’s first of two clashes in the marquee league. And it’s the identity of their opposition which will see them make a foray into the clash quietly confident of pulling off the four points from the outing.
With the sole win to their name from the five matches they have played, Auckland Aces find themselves languishing in fourth place. However, the side will be buoyed by their foregone outing, a match which gave them ther first win of the season as they showed composure which was beret till now, hanging onto the barest of margins to pull off a two run win against Central Stags.
And they know they’ll need to emulate that display against a Wellington side which thumped Central Stags by 42 run as they defended their 196 runs with consummate ease. With both the sides piling on gargantuan runs the last time around, this looks set to be a closely contested affair, one where the finest of margins will come into play to give us our winner.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An absolutely sublime batting track, this is a wicket which will indulge us in a run feast, one where both the sides are set to concurrently pile on the runs on the day.

AUK Vs WEL Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
The one wicket-keeper apiece will be lining up the opening ambit of our side. We begin with Glen Philips, someone who has ensured his side have been propelled towards massive runs with him putting on 27 the last time around as well.
The talisman of his side almost breaching the 200 run mark to register their third win of the league in the foregone affair, Wellington Firebirds are represented by their opener here. Devon Conway put on 89 pulsating runs for his outfit, giving them just the platform to build on from to make him an instant election for this one.
AUK Vs WEL Dream11 Batsmen
A reason for Auckland Aces mustering up their inaugural win of the league the last time around was due to Martin Guptill with the opner needing a mere 29 balls to register 43 runs to see him come in ahead of Munro for the day. With 26 runs in a mere 13 balls in that tie as his breached 200 runs, Craig Cachopa will be brought in as well by us from the outfit while opener Michael Pollard is coming in from the Firebirds after emerging as the heart of his unit’s batting order at the top of the slot.
AUK Vs WEL Dream11 All-Rounders
Needing just 29 balls to smash his way through to 63 runs, Mark Chapman fabricated his way to a vibrant and euphoria filled display to make him an instant selection from Auckland Aces. Elsewhere, Jimmy Neesham from Wellington Firebirds was always going to be an instant selection for us from the side with the player putting on 38 runs in 25 balls in his previous soiree to provide just the shot in the arm in the closing overs.
He’s partnered up by spinner Rachin Ravindra, someone whose left hand brand of spin is set to see him thrive and flourish infront of a languid batting unit.
