Canterbury Magicians – Frankie Mackay (C), Kate Anderson, Sarah Asmussen, Missy Banks, Jodie Dean, Abigail Hotton, Laura Hughes, Maddie Penna, Jacinta Savage, Izzy Sharp, Gabby Sullivan, Lea Tahuhu

Players to watch out:

Marina Lamplough

The 24-year-old all-rounder has chipped in, scoring 104 runs from 6 outings and bagging 2 wickets from as many bowling appearances this Smash season. Marina, in her previous 4 outings, has departed for scores of 17, 18, 8, and 13, and it’ll be hoped that she capitalizes on these starts while continuing her bowling form.

Marama Downes

The 21-year-old pacer has had a decent Smash season, scalping 7 wickets from as many outings, maintaining an economy rate of 5.32, and registering the best figures of 2/10. Marama, while consistently being economical, has not been a regular feature in the wickets column, and it’ll be hoped that she steps up with the ball.

Kate Anderson

The 27-year-old batter, averaging 25.28, has amassed 177 runs from 7 Smash outings this summer, striking at 111.32 and registering the highest score of 43. Kate is an in-form batter on the side, and she followed up her season best with scores of 10, 41, and 23 and will be counted on to lead the scoring.

Frankie Mackay

The 33-year-old all-rounder has been a standout for the team, posting 172 runs from 6 outings and bagging 6 wickets from 5 innings. Frankie, in her previous 4 outings with the bat, has registered scores of 51, 19, 51, and 9, while also being consistent with the ball. She’ll be banked upon for the goods, especially with the bat.

Pitch:

The 22-yard strip at Seddon Park is relatively balanced with an average score in the 120s. While conditions are conducive for batting, the wicket also offers assistance to pacers, as reflected in a modest average score at the venue.

Weather:

Hamilton promises ideal conditions for a complete game of cricket despite a cloudy overhead as the chances of rain are minimal. The temperature is expected to hover around 27°C with light winds and a humidity level of 90%.
