Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Auckland Aces vs Central DIstricts Ford Trophy 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland on the 24th of February 2022.
Auckland Aces have a strong batting lineup with Martin Guptill, George Worker, Glenn Phillips, and Mark Chapman all available for this match. Worker has over 450 runs to his name this season while Guptill and Phillips are just around the 350 mark each.
This shows that the team is not dependent on just one or two players to score the runs in every match and that most of the leading players are in good form.
Ferguson did not play the previous match and it is not yet certain whether he will be available for this match or not. His presence will strengthen the bowling considerably. In his absence, Ashok, Somerville, and a host of all-rounders will try to get the job done.
The bowling lineup is a weak link for the Auckland Aces for sure.
George Worker, Martin Guptill, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, Robert O'Donnell, Ben Horne, William Somerville, Simon Keene, Lockie Ferguson, Adithya Ashok, Olly Pringle.
The Central Districts are unbeaten in the tournament so far but we don't think they have the strongest side of the competition. Not a single one of their batsmen has scored over 250 runs in total. The batting is going to depend largely on Ross Taylor and Josh Clarkson.
Players like Doug Bracewell and Bayley Wiggins can contribute with the bat as well but we think, as a whole, the batting lineup of the Central Districts is weaker than the Auckland Aces.
Rance, Milne, and Bracewell will lead the bowling lineup for the Central DIstricts. Now, this is one area where the Central Districts definitely have the upper hand. If the bowlers can pick up a couple of wickets early, the winning streak of the Central DIstricts could remain intact for sure!
Ben Smith, Bayley Wiggins, Brad Schmulian, Ross Taylor, Tom Bruce, Josh Clarkson, Doug Bracewell, Adam Milne, Joey Field, Seth Rance, Jayden Lennox.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The conditions in Auckland are pretty good for cricket. There is no rain predicted for match day. As far as the pitch goes, Eden Park consistently provides the best batting surface that you can find in New Zealand. The surface has pace, bounce, and a lot of carry. This means that both the batsmen and the bowlers can get something out of it.
We are going to bet on the Auckland Aces to win this match. They have a stronger batting lineup and while their bowling is not the best, it is good enough to keep the Central Districts in check.
Bet on the Auckland Aces to win.
