Otago Sparks will host the Auckland Hearts team on Sunday at the University of Otago Oval. Both the teams will face off in an epic T-20 encounter and would be hoping to win this contest. The race to finish in the top four has already begun and Otago Sparks is out of the contention to qualify for the next round.

The host would be looking to end the tournament on a winning note in their last match. Otago Sparks have won three matches and lost four in their nine matches.

On the other hand, Auckland Hearts are placed at the second spot in the league table. They have won five of their matches and lost only two out of the nine appearances they made in the tournament. They are slightly behind the league leaders, Wellington Blaze who have won six out of their nine matches and have secured 28 points in the tournament.
