Central Stags continued to display their poor form after a rollicking start as they lost yet another encounter in the tournament. Coming off an embarrasing defeat at the hands of Wellington Firebirds, the Stags are in dire need of a win to reinstate their supremacy at the ladder. While a win for them will do just that, a loss here would push them further down the ladder. They'll be fancying there chances when they meet Auckland Aces in the upcoming encounter, which is to be played on 28th December at Pukekura Park, New Plymouth. While Auckland Aces haven't played too badly, a couple of wash-outs in their matches has ensured their bottom of the table position. They'd like to kick-start their campaign with a win in this all-important encounter against Central Stags.
While the Aces haven't had the best of the tournaments so far, they'll be disappointed with the position they're in at the moment. They are at the bottom spot on the ladder, with just six points in four matches and a negative net run-rate of -1.025. A win here, however, would push them to the fourth spot and that is exactly what they'll be aiming for.
It's been a while since Aces last played a match in the tournament. They faced Northern Districts five days ago and faced a massive defeat in that match. Chasing a total of 195, Auckland Aces couldn't get the ball rolling and were restricted to just 167. All of their heavy hitters in Colin Munro, Martin Guptill, and Glenn Phillips failed to fire as Auckland Aces found themselves in a spot of bother. Thanks to brief cameos from Craig Cachopa, Corey Anderson, and SM Solia.

Stags had a terrific start to the tournament, but they have failed to sustain the momentum they once had. They got off to a flying start in the tournament, registering back to back high-margin, dominating wins, but a wash-out followed by a couple of losses has put them in a position of concern. They are currently placed at the third spot on the points table and will be looking to get back to the winning ways with a win in their upcoming fixture.
While it were their batsmen who got Central Stags their opening two wins, its the same batsmen who failed to fire in all of their previous three matches. Againt Wellington Firebirds, their batsmen fell like a pack of cards in a chase of 196-run total. Dane Cleaver, CK Leopard, and George Worker were all dismissed within the first powerplay, leaving Stags in a spot of bother. Josh Clarkson and Kieren Noema Barnett combined to score 78 runs together and got Stags back in the contention, but a couple of quick dismissals left them wanting. The Stags were eventually dismantled completely for a total of 154.
Alongside their poor batting, their bowlers failed to make a mark as well. Bowling first on a surface that had a bit of assitance for quick bowlers, Seth Rance was put away for plenty in his four overs. Barring Ben Wheeler and WC Ludick, all their bowlers looked listless as they not only failed to pick up wickets at important intervals, but also gave away plenty of runs. Ben Wheeler and WC Ludick returned with the impressive figures of 28 for 1 and 15 for 2 respectively.

It's an important match for both the sides. While Auckland Aces need to kick-start their campaign and rise from the bottom of the table, Central Stags desperately want to get back to the winning ways. Comparing the two sides on paper, Auckland Aces have a slightly better batting unit with experience available right throughout and are therefore our pick to emerge on top in the upcoming contest.
