As the Super Smash T20 is in its midway, Auckland Aces and Wellington Firebirds will square off at Basin Reserve tomorrow to influx some momentum into their campaign. After the last encounter against Otago got washed out when they were 117/1, Aces would be eager to start with a bang when they take Wellington Firebirds tomorrow.
Lockie Ferguson, Martin Guptill and Colin Munro return to the squad at the best time and Aces will be featuring with their full strength at the Basin tomorrow. Aces are placed bottom-second in the points table and are two points behind Firebirds who have played a game more than Aces. Wellington Firebirds have accumulated 10 points from 2 wins out of 6 outings while Auckland Aces gave gathered 8 points from a solitary win in five encounters.
The first meeting between Aces and Firebirds got abandoned due to rain without toss on Christmas Eve and both the sides would be eyeing to make the most of their resources and clinch a win.
