WEL vs AUK Dream11 Prediction: The much-coveted encounter has finally arrived featuring Wellington Firebirds take on the four-time Super Smash champions Auckland Aces in what promises to be a cracker of a duel at Basin Reserve. Both the teams would be competing in their third faceoff of the season, with the first one being won by won the Firebirds with 7-wickets in hand, and the second clash being won by the Aces with 6-wickets to spare. Aces, led by Craig Cachopa would be banking on the top-order trio of Guptill, Munro, and Phillips to strike hard onto the opponents, while the Firebirds would wish the trio of Conway, Pollard, and Newton to sail them pat the victory limits. All in all, both the teams possess ample firepower and will deploy whatever tactics necessary in gaining an upper hand in the much-coveted encounter.
