Northern Districts will take on Central Stags in the 26th match of the Ford Trophy 2020/21, at Seddon Park in Hamilton.
Northern Districts have failed to start their Ford Trophy season this year with winning momentum. They have lost both their matches in February, as a competitive Wellington side beat them by close margins on both occasions.
Central Stags have also started in a similar fashion, losing both their matches this year. Auckland Aces beat them by six wickets in the first match and followed it up with another 93-run victory.
As far as head-to-head is concerned, Northern Districts have won the last two contests between the sides.
Squads to choose from:
Jeet Raval, Katene Clarke, Joe Carter (c), BJ Watling (wk), Colin De Grandhomme, Henry Cooper, Brett Hampton, Scott Kuggeleijn, Anurag Verma, Joe Walker, Matthew Fisher, Brett Randell.
