CM vs CH Match Preview

The Magicians started their campaign on a positive note, winning the first 3 matches of the season.

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. 

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.

The Hinds are having a torrid time this season and have failed to win a single game so far. 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. 

Claudia Green and Hannah Rowe have picked up 8 wickets a piece, while Jess Watkins has 6 wickets against her name.

Weather Report

The skies are likely to remain overcast with temperatures during the night hovering around the 20 degrees Celsius mark. 


Pitch Report

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. 

Notable stats

Hannah Rowe’s all-round performance

Dream11 Prediction

Looking at the current form of the Central Hinds team, we feel that they will find it very difficult to overcome a formidable opponent like the Magicians. Barring a couple of players, none of the team is performing well at this stage. On the other hand, the Canterbury Magicians have a pretty balanced squad and are well-poised to win this match. 


Top Picks

Amy Satterthwaite: Amy Satterthwaite has been one of the most reliable players for the Magicians this season. In 7 outings, she has scored 224 runs and has also picked up 9 wickets.

Gabby Sullivan: She is the leading wicket-taker for her team as well as in this tournament with 12 wickets. Her economy rate is pretty good too, at 6.03 runs per over.

Natalie Dodd: Dodd has scored 272 runs this season and is second on the list of top run-getters this season. She is likely to play an important role in this match.
