Wellington up against Auckland today

5:47 am on 28 December 2011

The Wellington cricketers will be hoping for a change of fortune when they take on Auckland in the HRV Cup Twenty20 competition at the Basin Reserve this afternoon.

Wellington were beaten by Central by 25 runs yesterday to remain winless after 2 rounds and they'll need to improve dramatically when they take on the unbeaten Aucklanders today.

Wellington will be without Black Cap Jessie Ryder who strained a calf muscle yesterday.
