Canterbury will square off against Auckland in the 15th match of The Ford Trophy 2019-20 on Friday, November 29 at Hagley Oval, Christchurch. The match will commence at 3:30 AM (IST).
Canterbury Kings are unbeaten in the four games played so far. Their opening fixture ended in a no result and since then they have secured three consecutive wins. They will look to maintain their dream run in the tournament by securing another win which will consolidate their position at the top.
On the other hand, Auckland secured a 97-run win over Otago Volts in their last match and will look continue with the winning momentum. They are sitting second in the ladder with three wins in four encounters and would be eyeing to grab the top spot from Canterbury, who share the same number of wins but are ahead by two points. As this is a battle between the table-toppers of the competition this season, it is set to be an interesting game.
