CHW Vs WBW Dream11 Team And Match Report: Unbeaten Wellington Blaze look to keep their speckle free record intact ahead of today’s impending encounter.
Sitting in the annuls of the league standings of the 2019-20 edition of the Super Smash, for Wellington Blaze, the opening exchanges of the marquee league have been nothing short of a dream. Every move the side have carried out on the park have transpired joyously for the outfit to see them win four out of the four matches they have plied their skill set in.
And what has impressed the most from the outfit is not only the fact that they are unscathed in the league as of now but the clinical and comprehensive manner they have pulled off their wins in. The side has decimated its opponents, dismantling them with complete and radiant displays to be firmly planted at the top of the points tally.
Their exuberant and exquisite brand of cricket was plaid testament to the last time around as well with the team pulling off an incredible 9 wicket win over Otago Sparks as they chased down the 97 run target laid out infront of them with consummate ease. And they’ll be looking to emulate that rampant performance come today’s impending tie against Central Hinds as they look to hammer down their spot in the pinnacles of the points ally.
For the Hinds meanwhile, today’s encounter comes across as a tricky test but one the side will go into buoyed with a 7 wicket win over Canterbury Magicians the last time around. It was only their second win in five matches, one part of their resurgence in the league to propel them into fourth place in the points tally.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A wicket which has traditionally stayed true to the bowlers, despite this being the first encounter of the league to be played here, we envisage this track to stay intact to its nature. Bating will be a tepid task with the bats required to lay down a real vigil, something which will lead the side winning the toss opting to come out and field first and get a cohesive idea of how to navigate their run chase.
