Central Stags chased their previous 2 matches incredibly well and emerged victorious in the final over. Josh Clarkson played special knocks to finish things well for the side. Dane Cleaver too made pivotal contributions with the bat coming at No.3. They are a batting-heavy side as they posted more than 200 runs on two occasions already in this tournament. With the available resources, they are doing a great job with the ball too. They currently placed 3rd in the standings with 8 points.
Auckland Aces will be without Lockie Ferguson as the speedster will be joining the New Zealand squad for the upcoming tour of Pakistan. They tied with Otago Volts in their last outing. They failed to score a single run on the final delivery of the match and settled for a Tie. They have got enough firepower at their disposal and need to utilize it. Benjamin Lister’s injury will hurt them badly. Ben Horne and Sean Solia have done pretty well so far in this tournament. They are placed 5th in the standings with 6 points.
