Wellington Team Preview:

They finished 3rd in the last season. They will miss the services of D Conway, T Blundell, J Neesham and R Ravindra. Their batting is looking little weak on the paper. Their most of the batters were in very poor form in the Plunkett Shield matches however they have one of the strongest pace attack of the tournament and they will be key for them. N Smith had taken 21 wickets in the Plunkett Sheild matches.
