In their last game against Otago Sparks, Canterbury Magicians lost the toss and were asked to have a bat first.

Katey Martin and Millie Cowan in the middle order provided a strong push with their 42 run partnership for the 3rd wicket. However, once this partnership was broken, the lower middle order simply lost the plot and could not play a counter attacking innings to take their team home. In the end, Otago Sparks could only manage 129 on the board in 20 overs, losing the match by a small margin of 3 runs.
