NK vs AUK Dream11 Match Prediction | Ford Trophy 2019-20 | Fantasy Team News

NK vs AUK Dream11 Match Preview: Auckland strengthened their chances of finishing at the top of the table and confidence within the team before the important knockouts with a brilliant 4-wicket victory in their last match. On the other hand, things are getting worse for the Northern Knights as their last game ended in a washout that further made their qualification chances a lot more difficult. However, the Northern Knights will still be looking forward to winning this game and hope for some other results to go in their favour as well. Auckland will surely enter this contest as the better-placed unit.
