Canterbury Magicians will take on Northern Spirits in the upcoming Women’s Super Smash T20 on Wednesday. This will be last league stage encounter which we see a fifth-placed team go up against the third-placed team of the league table at Hagley Oval. Northern Spirits will play for the pride and look to end the tournament on a high. They could only manage to win three games out of their nine league games.

On the other hand, Canterbury Magicians have won five games and lost only two league games. They are currently sitting in the third position. They will be also looking to continue their fine form on the field and try to dominate the opposition in the early stages. Magicians will try to bounce back after their 4 wicket defeat against Wellington. They are just two points behind the second place holder Auckland Hearts.
