Northern Districts will take on Wellington in the preliminary final of the Ford Trophy 2021 on Wednesday, March 3 at 3:30 AM IST. The match will be played at Seddon Park, Hamilton. Here's a look at our ND vs WF Dream11 prediction, probable ND vs WF playing 11 and ND vs WF Dream11 team.
Northern Districts ended their league stage campaign with a 5 wicket win over Central Districts and they will be hoping to continue their winning momentum when they face Wellington in the upcoming contest. Jeet Raval and Katane Clarke have had a great tournament with the bat and will look to continue with their fine form. Brett Hampton is the leading wicket-taker for the side in the tournament and once again will be leading the bowling attack from the front.

Wellington's confidence will be sky high after posting the highest team total in the tournament's history versus Otago. They had posted 427/8 on board and won the match by 82 runs. Troy Johnson and Michael Bracewell are the leading run-getters for the side in the tournament so far, while Peter Younghusband leads the wicket-takers list for the side with 13 wickets. The last time these two sides met it was Wellington who did the double by winning matches with 1 wicket and 17 runs respectively. This should be yet another exciting contest to watch.
