The Women’s Super Smash 2022-23 will start on December 23. The matches of New Zealand’s yearly T20 league will be staged at 10 venues across the country. The 32-match tournament will continue till February 11, 2023.
The 16th edition of the Women’s Super Smash will run alongside the 50-over Hallyburton Johnstone Shield competition which got underway on November 19, 2022, where the same participants are plying their trade in the one-day domestic tournament.
The six participating teams are Auckland Hearts, Canterbury Magicians, Central Hinds, Northern Brave, Otago Sparks and Wellington Blaze. Northern Brave will face Canterbury Magicians in the competition’s opening match.
All the participants will face each other twice in a home-and-away round-robin format in the league phase.
The table-toppers, at the end of the league stage, will directly qualify for the final whereas the second and third-placed teams will square off in the eliminator for a spot in the summit clash to be held on February 11, 2023. Watch Women’s Super Smash 2022-23 live in India.
