Auckland Aces will take on Northern Knights at their home ground at the Eden Park Outer Oval. This match marks the return of some of the big names in New Zealand Cricket. Kyle Jamieson and Martin Guptill will be seen in Auckland colors while Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Colin De Grandhomme return for the Northern Knights for the first time this season.

The two sides are placed at the bottom of the table. Auckland are yet to win a game this season.

Both the teams would be hoping for better performance with some big names returning to their ranks. It should be an interesting match between the two sides.
