Preview:

Central Hinds and Northern Spirit will play against each other in the 5th match of the Women’s Super Smash T20 on Wednesday. Having lost their first match terribly against Wellington Blaze, Central Hinds will be hungry to register their first win against Northern Spirit.

On the other hand, Northern Spirit are ready to tackle Central Hinds in their opening game of the tournament. They finished 5th in the previous T20 competition held so they would want to prove themselves what they are capable of by performing better compared to last season.
