Ford Trophy 2019/20 – NK vs WEL Fantasy Preview

The 2019/20 Ford Trophy has finally come to the end of the round robin stage with 3 matches scheduled on the final day of the group stage schedule. Among these games is one between Northern Districts and Wellington in Match 30 of the tournament. Northern Districts will be playing at their home ground where they beat Auckland a few days ago.

However, Northern Districts still have only 4 wins in 9 games this season and are still in the bottom half of the points table. On the other hand, Wellington is in a safer position with 5 wins in their 9 games and both will be looking to win and finish in the top half.

Northern Knights

With the bat, Henry Cooper is a must have as he has 388 runs in 8 games this tournament. In the last game he only scored 9 but prior to that, he had three successive fifties and a score of 45 before that. He bowls sometimes too, so he should be in your team. Their next highest scorer this tournament is Katene Clarke who has managed 2 fifties in 8 games including 69 in the last game a few days back.

With the ball, Brett Randell has only played 3 games so far this season but I’ll have him in my NK vs WEL fantasy team because he’s bagged 7 wickets so far, including a 3-fer and a 4-fer. All-rounder Anton Devcich has had a poor season so far but he has experience from all across the world and he can be a game-changer on his day, so he’s worth picking as well.


James Neesham is with the national side playing India so skip him from your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team today. Instead, pick Dutch bowler Logan van Beek who has only managed 7 wickets in 8 games so far, so he won’t be a very popular fantasy pick. Ian McPeake is also a good pick with the ball having picked 9 wickets in 6 games this tournament so far.

Left-handed batsman Devon Conway is the tournament leader in some amazing form with 4 fifties and 2 centuries, so there’s no way you can leave him out of your fantasy side. In fact, he has 2 hundreds in his last 4 games. Rachin Ravindra is one of the up and coming players in New Zealand and he has 200 runs in 4 games so far, though he didn’t play the last game for Wellington. X-factor – Michael Bracewell.
