Weekends are busy for the teams of the Hallyburton Johnstone ODI Shield as they play back-to-back matches. As a result, at the time of this writing, the competing teams will still have to play one match each prior to this one whose result we do not know. It should not matter much, though, as we have a decent amount of tournament history to draw from.
This next match is going to be between Wellington Blaze and Otago Sparks.
Wellington Blaze vs Otago Sparks Hallyburton Johnstone ODI Shield 2021 is going to be played at the Basin Reserve, Wellington on the 14th of March 2021.
The tournament is structured in such a way that teams play each other twice on consecutive days. It reduces the need for traveling and logistic costs for the organizers. It also gives the teams a chance to change up their strategy and come back hard if they end up losing the first match.
Wellington Blaze has struggled for runs recently and depends quite heavily on McFadyen to score the bulk of the runs. She is nearing 400 runs for the tournament and is in decent form. Burns and King are the other two batters to watch out for in that team.
Among the bowlers, Chandler, Molony, Kerr, and Singh are all decent performers.
Jessica McFadyen, Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr, Maddy Green, Leigh Kasperek, Thamsyn Newton, Jess Kerr, Georgia Plimmer, Maneka Singh, Xara Jetly, Bethany Molony.
The Sparks have struggled for runs in this tournament and that is the reason why they are not getting the results that they need. There are four batters with a total of over 100 runs to their names.
CG Blakely is the leading run-scorer among them with 242 runs to her name and so here is a clear lack of match-winning batting performances coming through.
EJ Black and EJ Carson have been the best bowlers of the team but it remains to be seen whether they will be able to compensate for the shortcoming of their batters.
Bella James, Polly Inglis, Caitlin Blakely, Katey Martin, Hayley Jensen, Olivia Gain, Saffron Wilson, Emma Black, Eden Carson, Marina Lamplough, Sophie Oldershaw.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The conditions in Wellington are expected to be very good for cricket. There is no rain predicted and the pitch should be in favor of the batters as well. Looking at the strength of the two teams, a score of around 250 seems to be par.
We are betting on Wellington Blaze to win this match. It has a slightly stronger batting lineup and a slightly stronger bowling attack.
Bet on the Wellington Blaze to win.
