The 8th match of the Women’s Super Smash T20 will be played between Northern Spirit and Otago Sparks at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui.
The match is scheduled to start at 3:40 PM local time (8:10 AM IST) and it will be streamed live on Fancode.
Northern Spirit Women and Otago Sparks Women will face each other in the 8th match of the Women’s Super Smash T20 on Saturday. Northern Spirit are playing some quality cricket at the moment having won 2 consecutive matches and moved to the second spot in the table with 8 points in their account. In their previous match, they won a last-ball thriller against the defending champions Wellington Blaze. Winning back to back matches have boosted their confidence level and are currently a tough opposition to beat.
On the other hand, Otago Sparks are placed at the bottom of the table as they went on to lose two straight matches on the trot. By analysing their performances, the batting department hasn’t played to the expectations apart from Polly Inglis. Skipper Katey Martin has only managed to score 3 runs from 2 matches which is one of the biggest concerns for Otago Sparks. They look forward to turning the table around by winning the upcoming matches.

The surface at the Bay Oval is an excellent sporting wicket and produced a close finish in the last game played here. The team batting second has been winning most of the recent matches which indicates the wicket will become flat over the course of the game. Whoever wins the toss should look to bowl first.
