AHW Vs CMW Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Canterbury find themselves stuck in a rut as time runs out for the lacklustre side.
They have stepped out onto the pitch in five encounters and with not even the solitary win in any of them, for Canterbury Magicians, the ongoing edition of the Super Smash league is on the cusp of folding its curtains. When the team make an advent into their encounter today, they know anything less than a win would mean being shunted out of the league.
As we beckon in a new year, Canterbury Magicians will be fortuitously wishing that it ushers in with it a fresh and revived fortunes for the side. They were decimated by Otago Sparks in their bygone encounter, a lacklustre display with the 66 run defeat perfectly alluding to their despondent showing in the league.
However, things will be far from easy for them when they faceoff against Auckland Hearts, an outfit which is itself in need of a win. After cruising their way through to the pinnacles of the points tally, the side now finds itself struggling with two straight defeats proceeding four wins in succession with the most latest being a 6 wicket defeat by the Blaze.
Both the sides are massively struggling for form recently but Hearts come into this carrying an edge. They were in rampant form not too long back and we envisage them overhauling their underachieving form come today’s tie against an opposition which has offered nothing in the league.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A tepid wicket for the bats, the need to indulge in a real vigil over here for the batters is a very real one. Runs will be slow and tricky to come by and with the wicket staying more or less the same across the course of the encounter, the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and chase here.

AHW Vs CMW Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
There was little to choose from between both the wicket-keepers for this one with either failing to impress but what swung us towards Natasha Tilburg’s way was her higher batting order, one which should allow her enough time to cream the ball to the fence.
AHW Vs CMW Dream11 Batswomen
At a time when everyone collapsed around her, Auckland Hearts’ leading run getter, Katie Perkins came up with 25 invaluable runs for her side to see us venture in with the player for this upcoming encounter. The opposition meanwhile find representation in the form of two players with Natalie Cox being brought in alongside Kirsty Nation, two players who have waged a lone battle for the side in a moment of peril to show fight and character.
AHW Vs CMW Dream11 All-Rounders
The real gold of our outfit, we have the four players come in over here for us in what is the most heavily dominated and expensive segment of our Dream 11. The quality of the imperious performers lining up this slot meant it was always going to be befitting of us to dole out a staggering amount to indulge in names who are heavily touted to be the star performers for their side in this one.
We begin with opener Anna Peterson from Auckland Hearts, a player who has been a testament to the side tasting such consummate success this season. She’s Arlene Kelly who sent down the three overs for a mere 7 runs the last time around along with snagging the one wicket as well to her name.
Canterbury Magicians meanwhile will be represented by Frances Mackay and Jacinta Savage, players who have in their repertoire an expansive skill set, one which has seen them play a pivotal role in their side’s batting and bowling slots.
AHW Vs CMW Dream11 Bowling Order
If the Magicians have any chance of emerging as winners from this one, they’ll be requiring Gabby Sullivan to emulate the same rousing performances which have seen her emerge as the frontline bowler as her side. And we envisage her doing so to see her become the first name to be imbedded in our team here while the opposition are represented by Jessica Simmons and Gabby Sullivan after they both came up with the one wicket apiece the last time around.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Peterson is chosen as our captain for the day while Mackay is the vice-captain.
