The 10th match of the Ford Trophy 2020-21 will be played between Auckland and Otago at Eden Park Outer Oval in Auckland.
This match is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM Local Time (03:30 AM IST).
The two teams who will clash in this game had contrasting starts to their campaign, but the tables turned in the last game. Otago had a brilliant start to their 2020-21 Ford Trophy campaign, as they defeated Central Districts twice in their first two fixtures.
On the other hand, Auckland started off their season with two consecutive defeats, both coming against Northern Districts. However, they will come into this game booming with confidence, as they absolutely thrashed an in-form Otago in the last game. Otago will have vengeance on their mind, while Auckland will be aiming to do the double.
