CH-W vs OS-W Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:

Hayley Jensen has been a complete all-rounder in this tournament taking 2 wickets on an average per game. The last time these 2 teams met, she took a couple of wickets along with some handy runs with the bat as well. Otago Sparks would want her to continue her quality services for the team.

Natalie Dodd has been amongst the runs in this tournament but the last time she played against the Otago Sparks, she had to struggle with her strike rate of only 63.4. Dodd has scored an average of 31 runs in her last 4 games with a strike rate of 107 and if the Hinds are looking to win this one at home, Natalie would be vital for their chances.

Polly Inglis scored 43 off just 38 deliveries in the previous game against the same opposition and she has looked in great form in the tournament as well. Polly missed out the last time against the Wellington Blaze where she was bowled by Amelia Kerr and was kicking herself on missing out so she would be looking to come back stronger in this fixture.

Jess Watkin has been a few of those lone warriors that have shone in the tournament for the Central Hinds. She has picked an average of 2 wickets per game on this ground in this tournament and along with that has opened the batting for the Hinds. She is one player that can surely give you some extra fantasy points given the amount of game time she gets.

Caitlin Blakely scored a fiery knock of 32* off just 24 balls in order to seal the game against the Northern Spirits. The last time she got a chance to face the Central Hinds, it was only a matter of 7 deliveries where she scored 9* runs in order to finish the game. She might look to go big this time around if given the chance.
