Players to watch out:

Amy Hunter

The 18-year-old keeper-batter, with 22 One Day Internationals (ODIs) under her belt, has amassed 520 runs, including the highest of 121*, at an average of 27.36. Amy has been in outstanding form in international cricket lately and in the competition last summer scored 181 runs. Given her success, she can be counted on to lead the scoring, contributing significantly.

Arlene Kelly

The 30-year-old all-rounder in ODIs has picked up 22 wickets from 18 outings, while also adding 210 runs to the tally from 15 innings, with bests being 34 and 4/35. Arlene chipped in by scoring 61 runs and bagging 7 wickets in the competition last summer, and with her in rewarding form in international cricket, she’ll be relied upon for all-round efforts.

Laura Delany

The 31-year-old all-rounder has accumulated 1060 runs from 54 ODI outings and also struck 27 wickets. Laura, in the last edition of the competition, racked up 229 runs and also secured a couple of wickets. While she has been in outstanding form with the ball lately in international cricket, it’ll be hoped she finds consistency with the bat, replicating her ’23 season success.

Ocean Bartlett

The 20-year-old leg-spinner, maintaining an economy rate of 4.91, bagged 9 wickets from 8 outings in the ’23-24 New Zealand women’s domestic 50-over competition. Ocean’s best figures of 4/33 had come late in the tournament and counted amongst the most promising rookie talents, her progress in this competition will be closely watched.


The center wicket at C.I.Y.M.S. Cricket Club offers favorable conditions for bowlers, particularly pacers, leading to an average score in the 170s. Batters face challenges on this wicket but can convert their starts once they find their rhythm.


With rain on the radar throughout the match duration, expect delays and interruptions if the skies don’t clear. The temperature is expected to hover around 13°C, with light winds and a humidity of 83%.
