The Super Smash Fantasy Cricket League 2022-23 (Dream11) is organized by the New Zealand Cricket Board every year. The inaugural edition of the coveted Super Smash Fantasy League was won by Canterbury Kings at Eden Park Outer Oval, Auckland.
Since its inception in 2005-06, the fireball championship used to be a domestic professional men's cricket tournament. However, the domestic professional women's cricket tournament has also been held since 2018-19. Although the tournament changed names many times, it finally settled on Super Smash Fantasy Cricket League 2022-23 (Dream11).
What makes the tournament fun is its Double Round Robin format between six teams. Each team plays a total of ten matches where they score points per win or draw. The team with the highest points advances directly to the tournament finals. The teams coming second and third in the points table compete against each other in an eliminator to advance to the final round.
