The Auckland Aces will take on the Wellington Firebirds in the 19th match of the Plunket Shield 2021-22 at the Eden Park Outer Oval in Auckland on Monday.
The Auckland Aces have been in top form in the competition. They have won all four of their matches so far and have been in a different league compared to the rest of their opponents.
Their previous encounter got abandoned without a single ball being bowled. They’d fancy themselves winning this contest as well.
Meanwhile, the Wellington Firebirds have endured a terrible time in the competition. They are arriving into this match on the back of a five-match losing streak.
However, they will be looking forward to excelling in their final matches.
