NSW Vs AHW Dream11 Team And Match Report: Unbeaten Auckland Hearts look to keep their unscathed record speckle free come today’s outing.
Sitting in second place in the points tally of the ongoing edition of the Super Smash League, Auckland Hearts have been fully deserving of the spot they find themselves in at the moment. With three wins from their opening three outings, the side have been in succulent touch this season, a spree which sees them emerge as spearheads for the coveted trophy.
With their fourth win in succession today seeing them snap at the heels of Wellington Blaze in first place, the Hearts will be looking to keep their unblemished spree going when they step out to the middle for this one. The side are coming into this one in the wake of consummate success against Otago Sparks, a match which saw them outshine and outplay their opposition in all the departments of the game to first restrict them for a mere 126 and then canter their way to a 7 wicket win on the day.
Elsewhere, Northern Spirit follow up right behind them in third place in the league with the two wins and one defeat from three matches with a win today seeing them displace their opponents to ease their way into second spot. Their batting display was pulsating the last time around, seeing the side pull off a maverick of a 10 wicket win in pursuit of the 173 run target laid out infront of them, a performance which acted as just the impetus before embarking on today’s humdinger.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A sluggish wicket, the bats are going to totter and wobble their way on a wicket which is only going to get even trickier to play shots on come the second part of the match to lead the side winning the toss opting to bat first here.

NSW Vs AHW Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 59 runs in 49 balls the last time around, Northern Sprit’s Bernadine Bezuidenhout was always going to be an instant pick for us. The opener and wicket-keeper pulled of a thumping win for her side, one which saw her immerse us in a gripping show with the bat.

And the season she was able to do that was due to Katie Gurrey with her counterpart allowing her to express herself freely as she took the entire brunt of clean hitting on herself. She marauded her way to an intricate knock of 106 runs in a mere 57 balls to see her string together a 173 run winning knock for the first wicket to see her become an instant pick for our side.
Elsewhere, from the opposition’s repertoire of picks we are getting in a duo for the day with us beginning with Katie Perkins who scored 28 runs for her side in the foregone encounter. The 22 runs for Lauren Down in the same fixture see her come in as well to see us bring in a diminutive partnership from the side.
NSW Vs AHW Dream11 All-Rounders
With 2-25 with the ball the last time around, Anna Peterson becomes our first pick in this section of our Dream 11 side. The player pulled off a tenacious spell with the ball, catering for her side as she cut short the opposition’s efforts with bat.
Arlene Kelly is going to be partnering her up for this one whilst from Northern Spirit we are moving in for the imperious Felicity Leydon-Davis, a player who has an innate ability to incorporate her skill set in both the dockets of the game. The 3-19 for Charlotte Sarsfield will see her being brought in as well from the side, a spell in which she not only picked up wickets at regular intervals but also made squaring off against her an extremely tepid proposition.

And someone who provided her with the pinch perfect assistance in that spell was Lauren Heaps to pull off the two wickets to see her being brought in as well by us. From the other side of the land, Adelaide Hearts find representation in the form of their leading wicket taker Holly Huddleston and Lauren Heaps to wrap up our side for the contest.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Peterson is handed down the duties of being our side’s captain whilst Gurrey is our vice-captain.
