Central Stags

Central Stags had disappointing last season as they finished last and only one-two matches out of 10 games. Their performance last year’s performance was really surprising as they had many experienced and current national players like Adam Milne, Ajaz Patel, Doug Bracewell, and Will Young but couldn’t transfer their performances on the pitch. 

This season is going to be even harder for them as their key players like Ajaz Patel and Will Young are with the Test team in India and will be unavailable for initial matches which is going to be really, really hard to deal with. It is a new season and a fresh start for Central Stags so they would be hoping for a change of fortunes and start the tournament on a strong note.

Auckland Aces

Just like Central Stags, Auckland Aces had a disappointing season and they finished 2nd last just one spot above Central Stags. Auckland is one of the most successful teams of New Zealand’s domestic cricket but has been struggling in all tournaments. It is mainly because of the lack of any young exciting prospect rising through ranks. 

Auckland Aces depend on their William O Donnell who was their highest run-scorer with more than 500 runs which is exceptional but other players need to step up and support him if they want to turn things around in this tournament. They have many match-winners in the squad but all they need to do is to come together as a team and fire at the right moment. It is a fresh start and they would be hoping for a strong outing this time.

  • Willian O’Donnell- 537 runs at 53.70 average 
  • Sean Solia- 298 runs at 49.66 average

AA vs CS – Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

Auckland Aces is expected to win the match against Central Stags

KhelTalk experts feel Auckland Aces will win against Central Stags in this match. Auckland Aces will definitely start this match as favorites looking at their last head-to-head clash record and the rise of William O’Donnell in batting order gives them a huge edge.

They will have points to prove after recent struggles and Central Stags will be the best opponent for them to start the tournament on a higher note. Although we can’t take Central Stags lightly as they also have many match-winners, their overall balance is not that good as compared to Auckland Aces. We think Auckland Aces will win this match.

Top Batsman from Central Stags – Tom Bruce 

Tom Bruce has played 17 games for New Zealand and is the main man in the inexperienced squad of Central Stags. He had disappointing last season as he only managed to score 250 runs which was the main reason behind Central Stags’ struggles. Bruce is naturally a lower-order batsman but is playing in the middle order for them to provide stability and needs to perform at his best if Central Stags want to have a good season. Bruce is an attacking-minded player and Auckland’s surface and dimensions will suit him. He is our pick for best batsman from Central Stags.

Top Batsman from Auckland Aces – William O Donnell 

William O Donnell was the tournament’s highest run-scorer last season with a record-breaking 537 runs. He is just 24-year-old and the National team call-up will be just around the corner if he repeats last season’s heroics. William was only shining a light in Auckland’s disappointing season but the new season brings new challenges and he has got all the skills to come out on top. He is a talented player with sound technique and always looks really settled on the pitch. Willam is coming off great recent form and can give you good returns. He is our pick for best batsman from Auckland Aces.

Top Bowler from Central Stags  – Blair Tickner

Blair Tickner is going to be one to watch out for this season. The 28-year-old fast bowler has been around the National team for quite a while now and will be hoping to nail the spot through impressive showing in this season. Tickner is a fast and furious customer and has been a consistent performer for Central Stags for years now. He always generates something with a new ball which makes him a really serious threat to any opposition. Tickner can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best bowler from Central Stags.

Top Bowler from Auckland Aces – Ross ter Braak

Ross ter Braak picked 13 wickets last season and was one of the brightest prospects in their squad. The 24-year-old left-arm fast bowler has till now impressed everyone with his skills and he will be hoping to continue his rise in domestic cricket through another impressive season.

He swings the bowl in powerplay overs and his inswing to right-handers makes him a genuine threat which kind of gives vibes of Kiwi star Trent Boult. Braak is a rising bowler and could give you good returns from this match.
