The 2nd match of the Women’s Super Smash 2020 will be played between Wellington Blaze & Central Hinds at the McLean Park in Napier.
The match is scheduled to start at 8:10 AM IST (03:40 PM local time). It will be streamed live on Fancode in India.
Wellington Blaze would have wanted to start their 2020-21 Women’s Super Smash campaign with a win, but what they got was much more than what they could have wished for. Not only did they win the opening tie against Auckland Hearts, but they completely thrashed their opposition.
The Wellington bowlers were at the top of their game in the last game, as they restricted Auckland to only 92. The batting was equally impressive as Wellington chased the total with more than 9 overs to spare. They will want to continue the momentum, but things won’t be as easy against a strong Central Hinds side. The Hinds have named a strong squad for this match, which sets up for a mouth-watering clash.
