Lincoln, Nov 14, Wed at 03:30 AM IST
Central Districts and Wellington Firebirds will meet for the first time in The Ford Trophy 2018-19 at Lincoln No 3, Lincoln on Wednesday morning. While Firebirds are already on top of the points table with 17 points from 4 wins in 6 matches, Central Districts would be hoping to fancy their chances with a couple of wins. Districts are currently placed fourth with 11 points from 2 wins in 6 games.
Wellington eyeing a win to remain at the top
With 17 points coming from four wins out of six games, Wellington Firebirds have grabbed the top spot. However, just beneath them at the second spot are Otago Volts. Volts clinched a dramatic seven runs win over Wellington Firebirds in the last thriller to equal the points (17 pts) and are behind in net run rate.
While Firebirds face Central Districts on Wednesday, Volts will take on Auckland in hope of clinching the top spot.
Districts charged up with their last win
170 runs win over Auckland Aces in the last match would have boosted Central Districts confidence who last registered a win in their opening encounter. After starting their campaign with 37 runs win over Otago Volts in the opening game, Districts faced three defeats against Canterbury, Otago and Northern Knights while one of their against Knights was washed out due to rain.
Charged up with the massive win, Districts would be hoping to clinch a couple of wins and climb up the ladder.
