Otago Sparks will take on Canterbury Magicians in the 29th match of the Women’s Super Smash competition at the University Oval, Dunedin, on January 23, 2022.
With Otago Sparks already cementing their place in the top two, a win or loss won’t affect them at all, they are all set to feature in the Elimination Final anyways. However, a win for Canterbury Magicians would help them grab four points and also get on an equal footing with Auckland Women in the third spot and add a late twist to the Women’s Super Smash season. So, there’s a lot to play for and Canterbury Magicians especially would be giving their best shot at the University Oval, on Sunday. We are expecting a cracker of a game, so don’t miss out on the action, just like the exciting bets that I have accumulated for you to earn some extra cash this weekend.
Suzie Bates and runs go hand-in-hand and going by the same and also some of her recent exploits, there is no way we should miss an opportunity to invest money on this particular bet. In the last five matches, Bates’ scores read - 40, 1, 89, 24, 47, totalling to 201 runs, averaging 40.2 runs per innings, which is pretty impressive. The all-rounder has scored a total of 129 runs (47, 0, 82), at a rate of 43 runs per innings, having been amongst the runs in the two of those games. Overall, in 14 matches against Canterbury Magicians, the right-hander has amassed 439 runs, averaging 36.58 runs per innings. Her record in the last four home matches - 89, 24, 16, 64, sums up to 193 runs, at an average of 48.25 runs per innings, which is all but good news for Suzie Bates. In an illustrious career for Otago Sparks, that has already lasted 77 matches, Bates averages 38.08 runs per innings, with 2513 runs under her belt. The cricketer has been Otago’s backbone for quite some time now and it has not been an exception this time around as well. We expect her to set the tone for her side in the upcoming game as well.
Not always the pick I would always rely on, but Amy Scatterthwaite has been in some form off-late, which gives us a sort of security to invest our money on the deal. In the last five matches, Satterthwaite’s scores read - 114, 22, 71, 13, 23, which totals to 243 runs, averaging 48.6 runs per innings. Her record against Otago Sparks is equally inspiring, having registered scores of 23, 36, 56 n.o (115 runs at a rate of 57.6 runs per innings). Overall, in 16 matches played against Otago Sparks, the southpaw has managed to score 524 runs, at a rate of 47.64 runs per innings, which also supports our case. Satterthwaite has been impressive on the road as well, scoring 71, 13, 37, 2, 36 (159 runs, at a rate of 31.8 runs per innings), with three more than decent scores in the last five away matches. Moreover, Satterthwaite has bossed the Women’s Super Smash ever since she made her debut in the competition. Her tally of 2238 runs in 82 matches, with an average of 36.10 runs just highlights the above mentioned fact. If there’s anyone who can guarantee runs for Canterbury Magicians and rewards for you punters out there, Satterthwaite is your best bet.
As tricky as it looks, this might actually turn out to be a good deal to get your Sunday up and kicking. For instance, in the last four H2H matches between these two sides, the top batter’s scores were 37, 50, 56, 34, with just one instance where a player has crossed the 55-run mark. In the last five matches Canterbury Magicians featured in, the highest scores by a batsman from their side were - 34, 71, 28, 37, 37, with just one score of 56 and above. On the flip side, the highest scores by an Otago Sparks player reads - 61 n.o, 29, 89 n.o, 40, 47, which proves more often than not, the scores have been within our expected range. While the above instances are well conclusive of whether we should dish out money, let me give you another interesting fact. Canterbury Magicians’ batsmen have not been able to register towering innings quite often when playing away from home, with their top scores in the last five matches on the road being - 71, 29, 43, 55 n.o, 46, with just two scores of above 55. However, the 55-run unbeaten knock in the above series was scored by Frances Mackay, a player who tends to struggle against Otago Sparks recently, with scores of 2, 26 n.o, 0, 15, 15 in the last five H2H matches. I’m not insisting, but are going to place the bet anyway it seems.
