WEL vs CD Dream11 Match Prediction | Ford Trophy 2019-20 | Fantasy Team News

WEL vs CD Dream11 Match Preview: After winning their previous game by a margin of 22 runs, Wellington will be up against the Central Districts in a very important encounter to solidify their chances of making it to the knockout stages. On the other hand, Central Districts have had a very poor campaign in this Ford Trophy 2019-20 as they have won just two games out of eight. The Districts can still spoil the party for some of the other sides in their remaining matches. Wellington will be high on confidence after beating Canterbury in back-to-back matches.
