Kyle Jamieson’s lanky build up makes him lethal under the Auckland conditions. He has played just 27 first-class games and has 81 wickets to his name. Neil Broom,one of the most experienced batsman in New Zealand’s first-class circuit, will be poised to score big. The two veterans are our picks for captain and vice-captain in AUK vs OTG Dream 11 Prediction.
Auckland will be buoyed by the prospect of Ollie Pringle knowing what he can do with both bat and ball. If his metrics are to be estimated, 100 runs and a couple of wickets look on the cards. He will play the X-factor role in today match prediction. Jacob DUffy too will be rearing to have a go at the overcast conditions.
Today match prediction will definitely be a close contest. The AUK vs OTG Dream11 Match Prediction will be based on how pacers start the game. Both sides have some quality pacers in their ranks who will be expected to have the biggest impact in AUK vs OTG Dream 11 Prediction. Keeping the odds and numbers in mind, and also ruling out the probability of a draw, we expect Auckland to start their campaign with a win.
