Probable Playing XI
After a brilliant win over Auckland, Wellington shouldn’t be altering a winning combination. Rachin Ravindra and Andrew Fletcher were in top form as they put on a century stand with the likes of Michael Bracewell and Nofal chipping in the end. Their bowling unit is their stronger suit with the experience of Jeetan Patel being crucial. Logan van Beek is one to watch out for with the Derbyshire pacer being handy with the bat as well.
Andrew Fletcher, Rachin Ravindra, Devon Conway, Michael Bracewell, James Neesham, Malcolm Nofal, Jamie Gibson, Logan van Beek, Ollie Newton, Jeetan Patel and Ian McPeake
Although CD did run Northern Knights close, they did end up on the losing side. Nevertheless, they should persist with the same set of players as they search for their first win of the season. George Worker and Tom Bruce will be critical to their fortunes with both of them due for a big one. While they do have ample batting depth in their side, they will require better performances from the likes of Seth Rance and Blair Tickner on Wednesday.

Top Picks for WEL vs CD Dream11 Team:
Tom Bruce has only gotten off to starts this season and is certainly looking good for a big knock. Along with him, Rachin Ravindra and Jimmy Neesham are also viable candidates. Both of them are capable of winning games single-handedly with bat or ball. George Worker scored 83 in the previous game and also managed to pick a wicket with the ball, which warranties a place in the fantasy side. Josh Clarkson and Devon Conway should also score some runs while the likes of Seth Rance and Ian McPeake should also pick a wicket or two on Wednesday.
