The 14th Match match of the Ford Trophy 2020 will be played between Otago and Northern Districts at the University Park, Dunedin.
This match is scheduled to start at 11:00 AM Local Time, 03:30 AM IST.
The two sides who will meet at the University Park in Dunedin on Sunday have exactly similar starts to their 2020-21 Ford Trophy campaign. Northern Districts started their journey in the competition by beating Auckland twice in their first two matches.
Then they had a hiccup against Canterbury, but got back to winning ways in no time. Similarly, Otago started their season with two straight wins over Central Districts, but their juggernaut came to a halt in their third game. Auckland handed them their first defeat of the season, but in just a couple of days’ time, they got their revenge.
