Wairarapa Korus all-rounder Melissa Hansen will captain the Tararua Kotahi in the second annual Women’s Central Super League which started yesterday afternoon in Levin.

The franchise competition features the leading women players in Central Districts evenly spread over four teams. Each team plays three T20 games and the top two play off in the final tomorrow.

As well as Hansen, the Kotahi features Korus Ocean Bartlett, Macy Lyford, Gemma Sims, and Olivia Clark, while Emma McLeod will play for the Levin Coastal Challengers.

Melissa Hansen will captain the Tararua Kotahi.

White Ferns medium pace bowler Rosemary Mair from Hawke’s Bay adds further experience to the Kotahi.

Hansen, Mairs, Sims, and Bartlett all bring Central Hinds experience to the side, and that should make the team serious contenders over the three-day tournament.

However, Hansen said the main aim is the development of players and for everybody to come away having had a good playing experience.

Sims and Hansen showed good form for the Central Hinds in the second match of their Hallyburton Johnstone Shield doubleheader in Nelson last weekend.

Sims was second top scorer with 36 in only her second game at that level, and Hansen claimed three wickets for 29 runs, while Bartlett top-scored with 30 in the Korus’ loss to Manawatu in their Shrimpton Trophy fixture at Greytown.

The Kotahi starteed their campaign against New Plymouth Power yesterday afternoon, followed by Palmerston North Tui and Coast Challengers today.

The final and the third-fourth playoff is tomorrow.
