Northern Braves Women will be up against Auckland Hearts Women in the 16th Match of the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield 2021-22 on Saturday, 18th December at Seddon Park, Hamilton.
Northern Braves Women have so far failed to impress. They find themselves fifth in the points table having lost two of their three games, with the other one being abandoned due to rain. Northern Braves suffered a 86-run defeat in their previous game against Central Hinds and will now aim to grab their maiden win of the season.
Auckland Hearts Women, on the other hand, are yet to play a game this season. They have some talented and experienced players in their squad and will be eager to get on the field and showcase their skills.
