CD Vs WEL Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Top of the table Central Stags look to hammer down their position in the league.
The early encounters of the league have immersed us in an extremely tightly contested battle with rigorous and vigorous encounters being contested between the 6 sides. With two sides sitting level on 10 points and the third placed side following up with the 8 to their name, the set of events embroiling the league have resonated how stringent the competition in the Super Smash league is this time around.
And one of the sides to have the highest points as things stand, when league leaders Central Stags step out into the middle on the day, they will be well aware that there isn’t any scope for slipping up at the moment. The ramifications of the side increase massively especially after their previous outing, a 30 run defeat against Canterbury Magicians to see the side being handed over their first defeat in four outings.
And what will make things even more adverse for them ahead of the imminent tie is the fact that in third placed Wellington Firebirds, they have an opposition who are challenging for a place in the annuls of the points tally. The Firebirds are coming into this one with a vibrant 9 wicket win over Otago, a match which saw them make a mockery of what looked set to be attesting 182 run target.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An extremely dicey surface for the bats with the ball staying low and stopping before coming onto the bat, this match looks set to be a low scoring tie. With the wicket staying the same tatter of a surface across the full 40 overs, the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and peddle out a chase today.

CD Vs WEL Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
The 22 runs he got the last time around were yet another contribution from ne Cleaver in the opening slot for his side in a string of pivotal performances from Central Hinds’ opener to see us indulge in his services for the day.
CD Vs WEL Dream11 Batsmen
His side’s top scorer on the day with 70 runs in a mere 40 balls, Michael Pollard was always going to be an instant selection for us for this forthcoming contest. He’s partnered up by Jamie Gibson for the outing while Tom Bruce will represent Central Hinds, a player who has emerged as the talisman of his side’s batting order with his acumen imbued batting displays.
CD Vs WEL Dream11 All-Rounders
Unbeaten on 47 runs in a mere 32 balls for Wellington Firebirds, Jimmy Neesham came up with an imperious display with the bat, one which was telling of how succulent touch he’s been across the course of 2019. From Central Hinds meanwhile we are indulging in the services of Kieran Noema Barnett after his electric spell of 3-19 with the ball the last time around.
The enigmatic and extradonaire, George Worker comes in as well from the unit to complete our one-two of picks from the unit.
CD Vs WEL Dream11 Bowling Order
Given the identity of the surface, it was always going to be befitting of us to make this the most heavily indulged in department for this encounter. The 3-23 he returned with the last time around saw Ajaz Patel move to the top of the wicket taking ranks or Central Hinds to make him our first pick with Blair Tickner accompanying him after getting two wickets in the same outing.
Elsewhere, Ollie Newton and Ben Wheeler well wrap up our side for this one from Wellington Firebirds, two outstanding star performers whose ability to cramp the bats for room with their line and length make them our choice.
CD Vs WEL Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Barnett will lead our side out for the day as captain with Neesham being our vice-captain.
