Match: Central Hinds vs Wellington Blaze, Match 2
Date: December 27, 2020 at 8:10 AM
Venue: McLean Park, Napier.
The pitch in Napier has often produced an equal contest between bat and ball. The bowlers have managed to consistently pick up wickets, while the batters have made most use of the short boundaries on offer. That said, teams chasing have won most of the games, and the captain who wins the toss will want to chase.
However, the side chasing have a better record on this track. Thus, both captains would opt to chase if they in the toss.
