CM vs CH Match Prediction - Jan 27, 2023

The Canterbury Magicians will be looking to get back to winning ways as they take on the Central Hinds on Friday in the Women’s Super Smash League.

The Canterbury Magicians team is currently placed second on the points table, trailing Wellington by 12 points. While their promotion to the playoffs is almost certain, they would still be hoping to end the league stage at the top of the table. 


CM vs CH Team Previews

Canterbury Women

The Magicians started their campaign on a positive note, winning the first 3 matches of the season. However, they have seen a slight dip in the form recently, losing 2 of their last 4 matches, including the latest one against Wellington Blaze.

The team will once again depend on Amy Satterthwaite to put up an all-round performance in this match. She is the leading scorer for her team with 224 runs and has also picked up 9 wickets. While Kate Anderson has provided her with good support with the bat, the other batters have failed to score consistently. Middle-order batters like Natalie Cox and Abigale Gerken as well as openers Laura Hughes will need to shoulder more responsibilities going forward.

The bowlers have fared much better compared to the batters this season. Gabby Sullivan has picked up 12 wickets while Melissa Banks has 11. The two spinners, Satterthwaite and Sarah Asmussen have picked up 9 wickets each.

Facing a team like Central Hinds, who is pretty low on confidence at this stage, gives the Magicians a perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways.

Central Hinds Women

The Hinds are having a torrid time this season and have failed to win a single game so far. Facing 7 consecutive losses means that the Hinds are at the bottom of the points table and have no chance of making it to the next stage. Nevertheless, with 7 fixtures still to go, they will be hoping to end their campaign with a couple of consolation wins.

Natalie Dodd has been the highlight of an otherwise below-par Hinds team, as she is 2nd on the list of top run-getters this season. She has scored 272 runs at an average of 45.33 and has an average of 111.47. Hannah Rowe and Georgia Atkinson have played a couple of good innings but have failed to make any positive impact on the results.

Mikaela Greig and Jess Watkin have failed to get going, preventing the team from getting match-winning scores. It's the same story with bowling too. Claudia Green and Hannah Rowe have picked up 8 wickets a piece, while Jess Watkins has 6 wickets against her name.

However, the bowlers haven’t been able to put the opposition batters under any sort of pressure. Given the current trough in form, we think it will be very difficult for the Hinds to win this match.

Pitch and Conditions

The Hagley Oval in Christchurch has a good bounce, allowing the batters to go through with their shots. However, the surface tends to slow down a bit as the game progresses, making it difficult to score off the spinners. The average first innings score here is around 155. The skies are likely to remain overcast with temperatures during the night hovering around the 20 degrees Celsius mark. 


CM vs CH Betting Tips

Despite the odds for a Magicians win being pretty short, we feel they are the only team to back here. The Central Hinds hasn’t performed well till now and are unlikely to do so going forward. On the other hand, the Magicians have plenty of players who are in good form and should have no problem overcoming any challenge thrown their way.

Bet on a Canterbury Magicians to win.

    Top batter for the Central Hinds

    Natalie Dodd (3.1)


Natalie Dodd is by far the leading run-getter for the Hinds this season and is also 2nd on the list among all batters. She has scored 3 half-centuries in 7 innings and is batting at an average of 45.33. Given the poor form of her teammates, we feel that Dodd will once again emerge as the top-scorer for the Hinds in this match.
