The 12th match of the Women’s Super Smash 2020-21 will be played between Wellington Blaze and Northern Spirits at the Basin Reserve, Wellington.
The match is scheduled to start at 4:10 am IST and will be streamed live on FanCode.
One of the spiciest matches in the competition happened when these two teams met a few days ago at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui. It was the Northern Spirits that went marginally ahead at the very last ball of the match. What’s interesting to see is that Wellington were favorites right before that match and for this fixture, it will be the Spirits that will have the advantage.
Both teams have lost only 1 game in the tournament so it will be an interesting contest between a team at the top(NS-W) while the other (WB-W) has the best net run rate.
WB-W vs NS-W Weather Report for Match 12:
Expect some partly cloudy conditions with the temperature hovering around the 15 degrees mark. Humidity will be close to 68% under typical Kiwi conditions of the wind blowing from both directions.
The pitch favors the bowlers and so far it has been a test for the batsmen to score runs on this track. Win toss and bowl first would be the go-to word for the Captains.

WB-W vs NS-W Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:
Amelia Kerr has always been phenomenal with the bat and so she was when these 2 teams met at the Bay Oval during match 7. The all-rounder scored a vital 60 to help the team reach a respectable total.
Nensi Patel helped the Northern Spirit win the match through her all-round performance with both bat and ball. Not only was she economical and amongst the wickets, but she also scored a game-changing 25 at the death that helped the Spirits seal the game.

Kate Anderson gave the Spirits a good start the previous time these 2 teams met with a half-century at the opening slot while wickets were tumbling on the other end. Her temperament might just help them this time as well.
Jess Kerr was economical with the ball but she would believe she could have been more effective with the 1 odd wicket she got. Kerr was also instrumental in the dramatic run-out of Patel that got the game right down to the wire.
