Plunket Shield Match 11 Squad Comparison


Devon Conway’s unbeaten triple hundred (327) consisting of 48 fours and 5 sixes was the highlight of Wellington’s win over Canterbury in the last match. Previously, Devon Conway had scored 96 in the 1st innings against Otago helping his side reach 372. In addition to Conway, the batsmen at number 6, 7 and 8 were among top contributors against Canterbury. While Conway scored 66 in the 2nd innings, Jamie Gibson’s performance was worth noticing. Gibson scored 66 in the 1st innings followed by unbeaten 43 off 18 balls in the second. In addition, he also picked up 2 wickets for 34 runs in the 2nd innings.

Malcolm Nofal also delivered an all-round performance with 6 wickets in the match and 45 off 52 balls in the 1st innings. Fraser Colson is a concern for Wellington at the top with 2 ducks in the last 4 innings. Wellington’s batting strength lies in the middle and the lower order. The all-rounders are in good touch including skipper Michael Bracewell finding success with the ball. After having won two consecutive matches at their home ground, Wellington will be confident going into their 3rd match of the season.


Auckland has won 1 match in the Plunket Shield 2019-20 season so far while their last match was abandoned. While Auckland’s win over Central Districts wasn’t an easy one with 1st innings total of 210-10 followed by 189-9 in the second. It was the bowling effort that won Auckland their 1st match of the season. Matt McEwan picked 4 wickets in both innings while Jamie Brown, William Somerville and Sean Solia supported him well.

While opening batsman Martin Guptill will not be featuring in the playing XI, Glenn Phillips could open the innings alongside Jeet Raval. While Jeet Raval was out for below 10 runs in both the innings, Glen Phillips scored a fifty in the first. Mark Chapman, Sean Solia, and Robert ODonnell played vital roles in the middle in the last season. They failed to hold the innings together in the 1st match and will be crucial for Auckland in Wellington. Craig Cachopa wasn’t in the playing XI for the first match and could turn around Auckland’s batting woes if included in the eleven.

Our Prediction for Wellington vs Auckland

Wellington is favorite to win this match

While the top betting sites in India have Wellington as a favorite to win this match, Auckland is a tough competitor. While Wellington’s two consecutive wins and the home advantage would make them the favorite, Auckland’s bowling was in top form on their last outing. Auckland could restrict Wellington if their bowlers continue their good form. The difference between the odds for these two teams is very less, indicating the uncertainty on the betting sites. Bettors could make most of this uncertainty of the bookmakers during the live match betting on the in-play betting markets.
