In match number 21 of the Plunket Shield tournament, the Auckland Aces take on Canterbury at the Eden Park Outer Oval on Saturday.
The Auckland Aces have won just two and drawn three of their six games so far. In terms of team news, they will be without Glenn Phillips, who was a star performer in the last game. The wicket-keeper-batsman has left to join the New Zealand national side. The Auckland Aces will bank on Sean Solia, who is their leading wicket-taker in the Plunket Shield.
Canterbury, on the other hand, are currently table-toppers and are unbeaten in the Plunket Shield with five wins in six matches. Although they head into the game as clear favorites, the Aces are no pushovers.

The team winning the toss would love to bowl first at the venue. The pacers are expected to trouble the batsman early on. But as the game progresses, the pitch is going to slow down touch, making it easier to bat on.
