Central Stags vs Auckland Aces
Dream11 Super Smash T20
Date: 08th January 2020
Time: 07:40 AM IST
Venue: University Oval, Dunedin
Last result at this venue: The only T20I was scheduled to take place here between Australia and Newzead but git called due to coronavirus.
The surface here in Dunedin is a bit bouncy that will help the seam bowlers throughout the game. However, batsmen too love to score freely on surfaces like these, therefore, expect a high-scoring game on Friday.
