0
133

Match Time: 3:30 IST

Venue: Lincoln No.3, Lincoln, NZ

 

 

All 6 teams will play 3 games each in next 5 days which will be played at Lincoln (Bert Sutcliffe Oval, 3 Lincoln) & Christchurch.

 

 

Squad:

CD has lost their skipper Doug Bracewell who has been outstanding for them due to IND-A tour of NZ-A which begins on Friday.

 

 

 

Seth Rance who played only a single game in Ford trophy will also miss out.

 

 

Tom Bruce, who has just returned from UAE after PAK-A will lead the side.

 

 

Expected Playing 11:

 

 

Central Districts:

 

Hay, Ludick, Foxcroft, Bruce (C), Clarkson, Leopard, Wheeler, Ave (wk), Murray, Small, McCone.

 

(Bench: Dudding, Navin)

 

Wellington Firebirds:

Nofal, Fletcher, Conway, Bracewell, Neesham, Bhula/Pollard, Younghusband, Johns (Wk), Newton, McPeake/Sears, Bennett (C)

 

 

 

*Wellington has finally added Michael Pollard to the Ford Trophy squad who was injured & is a regular member of the Firebirds side who’s known for his hard hitting & attacking game.

 

 

The squad should most likely be same for all the three games at Lincoln & Chrischurch, so Pollard may play tomorrow or can play the next game. If he plays, will replace Bhula.

(If you want to take a risk on Pollard in Grand leagues, he’s available for selection in Dream11 & is wrongly categorised in the Bowlers section)

 

 

 

* Firebirds have consistently rotated their third seamer in McPeake & Sears. Though McPeake has done well in the last two games & should retain his place but Firebirds can continue to rotate them.

 

 

 

Dream11 Team:

 

 

Wk: Johns

(Both wk’s are not likely to contribute much with the bat, so i picked Johns purely for the catch points considering Firebirds bowling attack is too good for CD batting lineup)

 

 

Batsmen: Hay, Conway, Nofal, Fletcher

(Alternatives: Clarkson, Bruce)

 

Allrounders: Ludick, Wheeler (VC), Neesham (C)

(Alternatives: Foxcroft)

 

 

Bowlers: McCone, Bennett, Newton.

Gl choices: Bennett, Conway.
