AHW Vs WBW Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Ripper of a contest sees the first two sides go at loggerheads this Monday
There couldn’t have been a more pristine way to usher in a new week in the women’s edition of the Super Smash League than the tie slated between today’s Auckland Hearts and Wellington Blaze. When these table toppers take on each other on the day, we are set to be immersed in a cracker of a fixture, a tie which will see two stalwarts locks heads in a hectic day from the league.
The first of the two fixtures on the day will finally see one of these sides’ unbeaten spree being brought to an end while one will continue marauding up the points tally. And for Auckland Hearts particularly a win takes paramount importance with the club looking to displace Wellington Blaze from their place in the annuls of the points tally.
Currently sitting in second with the four wins from four matches, the Hearts are making an advent into this one having tasted their first defeat on the season. They faltered in pursuit of the 162 run target laid out infront of them to fold out their chase at a mere 139, a 22 run defeat which they’ll be looking to turnaround come today’s imminent outing.
Elsewhere, the only undefeated side in the league till now, for Wellington Blaze, a win today would not only take them 8 points clear at the top but also be their sixth one in succession. They thumped Central Hinds by 49 runs the last time around, a result which was a treatment to the exuberant brand of cricket they have doled out this season.
It’s tricky to determine a winner from this one but with the Hearts showing the first signs of cracking the last time around, Wellington Blaze come into this forthcoming encounter with the slightest of edges. They are undefeated till now in the league and we envision them keeping their speckle free record intact as well come today.
