Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions Women’s Super Smash T20: Central Hinds vs Canterbury Magicians - Match 13
The 13th match of the Women’s Super Smash T20 will be played between Central Hinds and Canterbury Magicians at the Hagley Oval, Christchurch.
Central Hinds are continuing their dismal form in the tournament so far as they have lost all the 5 games played so far and are resting at the last position on points table.
In the recently concluded game against Otago Sparks, Central Hinds lost the toss and were asked to have a bat first. They got off to a terrible start losing Jess Watkin at a score of 7. Post that Georgia Atkinson and Natalie Dodd played patiently and put on a stand of 35 runs for the 2nd wicket. However, this partnership did not feature any counter attacking strokes and there was no real momentum going along for them. Natalie Dodd was dismissed at 26 runs by Emma Black and Hannah Rowe soon followed her into the pavilion with Black claiming two back to back wickets. Kerry Anne-Tomlinson played well for her 20 off 15 balls but ran herself out at an important juncture leaving Central Hinds in deep trouble. Thereafter, the lower order fell like a pack of cards and Hinds were restricted to a total of 102 for 7 in 20 overs.
Defending 102 was never going to be easy considering the middle order strength Otago Sparks possesses. Millie Cowan and Polly Inglis started off very well for the Spaks as they stitched a partnership of 32 runs for the 1st wicket. After Millie Cowan fell, Polly Inglis took the innings forward rather cautiously ensuring they did not lose another wicket. She remained unbeaten throughout the innings and played a responsible innings of 43 to take her team home by 7 wickets and 28 balls to spare.
Canterbury Magicians on the other hand are placed at the 5th position with 1 win to their name in the 2 matches played so far. The other match they were supposed to play was called off because of rain.
In their game against Otago Sparks, Canterbury Magicians lost the toss and had to field first. Lea Tahuhu gave a great start with the ball as she chipped in with early wickets in the form of Katey Martin and Millie Cowan to peg Otago back in the powerplay overs. Hayley Jensen and Caitlin Blakely tried to hold the innings together with their knocks of 14 and 18 runs respectively but once they were dismissed, Gabby Sullivan ran through the lower order and picked up 3 wickets in quick succession to bowl Otago Sparks out for 112 runs.
Chasing 112, Canterbury Women did not have an ideal start as they lost Frances Mackay on the first ball of the match for a golden duck. After the first wicket fell, Natalie Cox and Amy Satterthwaite played sensibly and ensured they did not lose another wicket in the process. They stitched together a match winning partnership of 74 runs for the 2nd wicket. Natalie Cox was dismissed for 29 runs by Sophie Oldershaw. Amy Satterthwaite took the innings forward with Kate Ebrahim thereafter and did not miss out on putting away loose balls on offer. She scored an unbeaten match winning knock of 56 runs to win the game for Canterbury Magicians by 8 wickets with 27 balls to spare.
