Auckland Hearts Team News & Playing 11:

The Auckland Hearts have also had a lackluster performance in the tournament, winning just one game out of their four matches. Two games were affected by rain and ended as no-result. In their previous game against the Magicians, they achieved a remarkable four-wicket victory while chasing down a target of 153 runs.

Maddy Green, Bella Armstrong, and Izzy Gaze are the top batters for Auckland Women. Maddy Green stood out in the last game with a fantastic knock of 71 runs, while Bella and Gaze have the potential to take on any bowling attack despite their recent lack of form.

Bree Illing, Fran Jonas, and Skye Bowden will be the key bowlers for Auckland. Bowden has been outstanding with 10 wickets in the tournament so far, while Jonas and Illing have been economical. However, the team will hope for more wickets from them in the upcoming match.

The Hearts’ batters have been inconsistent, but their successful chase in the last game will boost their confidence.
