NS-W Vs AH-W Dream11 Prediction
Northern Spirit take on Auckland Hearts in the final of the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield 2019-20 in Seddon Park. Both teams have enjoyed a strong season, with Spirit topping the points table at the end of the league stage having lost only one of their 10 matches and have beaten their opponents in the last match of the league stage by 5 runs in the same ground while the visitors will be looking to their returning international stars to power them to another domestic title. Spirit are vying for their maiden title while their opponents are playing in their 6th consecutive final, winning on 3 occasions.
It is expected to be cloudy with slim chances of rain. Hamilton has been receiving rain throughout the last week and it is very cold as well. The temperature will hover between 2° Celsius to 4° Celsius.
A competitive track awaits both the teams. Given the overhead conditions, the new ball will be a factor and the faster bowlers will get enough assistance.

NS-W Vs AH-W Playing 11
Northern Spirit – Olivia Lobb, Katie Gurrey, Felicity Leydon-Davis, Brooke Halliday, Eimear Richardson, Kate Anderson, Makayla Templeton, Carolyn Esterhuizen, Lily Mulivai, Charlotte Sarsfield, Lauren Heaps.
Auckland Hearts – Tariel Lamb, Regina Lilii, Saachi Shahri, Katie Perkins, Lauren Down, Arlene Kelly, Bella Armstrong, Anna Peterson, Roz McNeill, Holly Huddleston, Brady Barnett.
Wicket-keepers: Tariel Lamb of Auckland women will be preferred over her counterpart, Olivia Lobb for this match.. Both the keepers bat in the lower middle order and with heavy credit issues, Lamb comes at a slightly cheaper price tag, so picking her will do the trick.
Batters: Regina Lili of Auckland women has to be in the fantasy team. She is a very capable batswoman. She is coming off a 96 ball 63 valiant knock in the previous match. Katie Gurrrey, who opens for Northern Districts women will be the second batter for this match. Even though she is struggling to score runs, she is a big match player and can come good in this finale. To round off the batting unit, one of Jessie Prasad or Izzy Gaze would suffice.
All-rounders: Four prolific all-rounders are available for this match and picking all the four will certainly benefit the fantasy team. Eimear Richardson has to be the first name on the team list. She bats at number three and bowls full quota of ten overs. She has picked up 8 wickets in the last two matches. Accompanying her from Northern Districts will be Kate Anderson. Anderson is another valuable all-rounder. Just like Richardson, Anderson too bats in the top four and bowls her quota of overs. From Auckland women, it will be the likes of Arlene Kelly and Bella Armstrong.
Kelly is more of a batting all-rounder and her form in this tournament has been very good. Armstrong bats behind Kelly and she is a decent batter. It is her bowling which has the venom and she is coming off a 4 wicket spell in her last match. She is the top wicket-taker of the tournament with 22 wickets.
Bowlers: Brady Barnett is a useful off-spin bowler. She bowls at a pace where the batters have to use their strength to maneuver the ball. Fran Jonas and Sarsfield will be the other two bowlers who would round off this category. Both Jonas and Sarsfield are genuine wicket-takers. Watch out for Carolyn in this match. She can do wonders with the new ball upfront.
