Central Districts Women play their reserve fixture against Auckland Women in the span of less than 24 hours at the New Zealand Cricket Women's One Day Competition 2020. This is the fifth match of the tournament.
Central Districts Women, who finished fourth last season in the 50-over competition, have started with a bang. They skittled Auckland Women out for a mere 49 and chased it down with ease, in just 7.4 overs. They will be looking to build on their opening win and continue the winning momentum.
Meanwhile the defending champions Auckland Women have had the worst possible start to this season. They suffered a massive defeat against Central Districts Women. It is their batting that let them down as none of the batters could go past the score of 7, and extras made up for 23 out of the 49 that they scored. Hence, they need to pull up their socks quickly as the turnaround is short.
