Auckland Hearts are placed 3rd in the table with two wins and a loss from their three games. After losing their opening match of the Women's Super Smash T20, the Hearts have registered two back-to-back victories. They will be hoping to win this match and stretch their winning streak to three games.
Canterbury Magicians, on the other hand, have won their only game thus far and find themselves at the 4th position in the points table. They comfortably chased down a target of 113 runs in 15.3 overs against the Otago Sparks in their last game. The Magicians will be further strengthened by the inclusion of the all-rounder Jacinta Savage.
Both teams have some of the best in class players in their quiver which guarantees a terrific encounter at the Eden Park Outer Oval.

Match: Auckland Hearts vs Canterbury Magicians, Match 9
Date: 3rd January 2021, 04:00 AM IST
Venue: Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland.
The track at the Pukekura Park has been a batting paradise with an average 1st innings score of 167 runs. The ball comes on the bat nicely, and the batters can rack up big scores. The smaller dimensions of the ground further make it difficult for bowlers to stop the leakage of the runs.
However, the bowlers can expect some initial swing with the new ball and scalp some early wickets. The captain winning the toss will like to bowl first as chasing teams have won the majority of games at this venue.
