AHW Vs CHW Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Second placed Auckland Hearts look to hammer down their spot in the echelons of the points tally.
Where first spot looks to have been sealed by Wellington Blaze in the 2019-20 edition of the Super Smash, Auckland Hearts will be looking to keep the pressure mounting on the table toppers. Currently the 8 points behind Wellington, the Hearts know they are still in the chase for top spot as the second round of encounters in the league get underway.
Also, what makes a win of paramount importance to the side come today’s imminent encounter is the side’s ambition to hammer down the second spot they are occupying at the moment. They come into this having flourished against the Magicians, a match which saw them send down a pinch perfect bowling effort to defend their mere score of 117 by 17 runs.
Elsewhere, Central Hinds were dished out a calamitous drubbing by Otago Sparks in their foregone affair. The side’s 5th defeat in 8 matches was especially contentious owing to the dreary manner it came about in with the side faltering by 79 runs as they looked to chase down the 182 run target laid infront of them.
On a wicket which is going to leave the batters in tatters, for Central Hinds, this match is bound to be a travesty. They are up against a well rounded bowling unit, one which will move in tandem to pick up wickets at crucial junctures and guide Auckland Hearts to a win on the day.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Not the easiest of tracks in the country to bat on, the ball grips, turns, stays low and stops before coming onto the bat to make strokeplay an extremely treacherous task. The team winning the toss will be looking to peddle itself to a chase with a coherent idea of how to traverse through the target doled out.

AHW Vs CHW Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
In an encounter where only three bats managed o breach the 10 run mark, Natalie Dodd ended up contributing 19 runs for her side to see us repose faith in the Central Hinds’ wicket-keeper our selection for this upcoming encounter.
AHW Vs CHW Dream11 Batswomen
There was one regulation pick over here, a name who stood tall amongst the picks from both the sdes. With 40 runs in her last outing, Katie Perkins becomes the first name to be enshrined in our Dream 11 unit, a player who has emerged as one of the most flawless names for her side this edition of the campaign.
Opener Saachi Shahri got 19 runs the last time around to see her being brought in as well from Auckland Hearts. On the other hand meanwhile we have gone in with the mere selection of Emily Cunningham with her being the only player who has been a part of her side’s playing 11 over the course of the last couple of encounters.
AHW Vs CHW Dream11 All-Rounders
Her brand off spin has not frisked and misbehaved to see her curtail the runs for the opposition but has also seen Anna Peterson snare wickets at regular intervals. She snagged the two wickets in the previous encounter as well to make the all-rounder an instant pick for us along with Alena Kelly who returned with the two wickets as well in the same outing.
Elsewhere, the opposition had three options to choose from with us beginning with opener Jess Watkin. She’s infused fresh life into a sortie where nothing has worked for her side, incorporating her expansive skill set with both the bat and ball to keep waging a lone battle for her side.
The second pick was trickier with both Mikaela Greig and Hannah Rowe contenders for the slot with the three wickets she took the last time around seeing us repose faith in Rowe ahead of Mikaela Greig for the day.
AHW Vs CHW Dream11 Bowling Order
After stalling their opposition for a mere 100 runs the last time to guide their side to an unlikely win, it was always going to be befitting of us to bring in a majority of picks from the opposition for the day. Both Holly Huddleston and Bella Armstrong have lead their side’s charge this season with the ball, two spearheads who have sent down ominous rippers to rise to the occasion for the side.
Elsehwhere, Rosemary Mair from Central Hinds will become the singular selection for the encounter with us leaving Rees out after she sent down just the solitary over with the ball the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Peterson comes out to captain our side while Watkin is our vice-captain.
