AH-W vs BH-W Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Undefeated Wellington Blaze make an advent into today’s showpiece final as overwhelming favourites
Yet to lose a match in the Super Smash League this season, for Wellington Blaze, this edition of the showpiece league has surpassed all expectations accorded from the side. They ended up sealing their berth in the marquee final straightaway with 10 wins from 10 matches in the league stages, numbers which emote towards their quirky brand of cricket this term.
And when they make a foray into today’s showpiece summit clash, the side find themselves having befittingly earned the moniker of overwhelming favourites. It’s one which they’ll be looking to pay testament to as they strike to rake up their 11th win in a row and with it walk away with the glistening trophy which they are so deserving of.
Elsewhere, their challengers on the day, Auckland Hearts are coming into today’s clash having defeated Otago Sparks in the preliminary final. Needing 121 to make it into today’s forthcoming tie, the side ended up cruising their way to a five wicket win to throw their bid in for a shot at winning this instalment of the domestic league.
Wellington Blaze have been unblemished the entire season with no one managing to get close to them and we envision them to keep their speckle free spree intact today. They are way too well rounded a unit, a side which should find it way too easy to cruise their way to the glistening trophy.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A humdinger of a track for the batters, the team winning the toss is going to prefer chasing here despite this being a final. This is a sublime batting wicket, one where the ball comes onto the ball perfectly to allow the bats to crunch the ball in the middle spot.

AH-W vs BH-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Rachel Priest from Wellington Blaze was an undisputed pick for us in this docket of our Dream 11 side. All across the course of the league, the wicket-keeper has been in pristine touch, torching her way towards match winning knocks to make her a must have option for the day.
AH-W vs BH-W Dream11 Batswomen
She scored 58 runs the last time these two sides squared off against each other to see us make Maddy Green from Wellington Blaze the first pick for today’s encounter. She’s paired up with Liz Perry, someone who given her high batting order and mere price tag of 8 credits makes for a safe pick.
Elsewhere, we finally have our first player being brought in from Auckland Hearts in the form of Regina Lili’I to complete our set of picks for today’s encounter.
AH-W vs BH-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Her 29 runs in the opening slot in her previous appearance see us make Sophie Devine the first pick in this docket of our Dream 11 side. All across her stay in the league, she’s been in electric touch, a player who has devoutly contributed in both the facets of her side’s game.
The 34 runs and 2 wickets in the same encounter see Amelia Kerr from Wellington partner her up for the contest. Elsewhere, we had two viable options from Auckland Hearts in the form of Huddleston and Anna Peterson with Peterson winning the battle courtesy of the 57 run knock she remained unbeaten on to see her side make it into today’s outing.
AH-W vs BH-W Dream11 Bowling Order
Leigh Kasperek was always going to be an instant pick for us from Wellington given the offspin brand of bowling she sends down for her side. In a tie where the runs will flow by easily, her ability and valour to throw the ball up and give it air will lure the bats into going for the false shots.
Deanna Doughty wins the fight over Kerr to be the second pick from the side owing to the touch she’s in at the moment, one which has seen her snare wickets consistently for her side. Elsewhere, the two wickets for her the last time around make Bella Armstrong our first pick from the opposition with Fran Jones pairing her up after sending down the 1-24 in the same tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kerr captains our side for this one while Devine is the vice-captain.
