Semi-final time in domestic one day competition

1:13 pm on 13 February 2010

The sharp end of the men's one day domestic cricket season is upon us, with the preliminary finals taking place in Auckland and Canterbury today.

The table-topping Auckland Aces are taking on last year's champions the Northern Knights at Colin Maiden Park in Auckland.

The winner of the game will automatically progress to the final next Sunday, and will also gain hometown advantage for the event.

The second preliminary final sees the Canterbury Wizards take on the Central Stags at QEII Park in Christchurch.

The loser will automatically be eliminated from the competition, whilst the winner will take on the loser of the Aces-Knights game for a place in the final.
