A Canterbury side laced with White Ferns will have home ground advantage when they pursue victory in both women's domestic finals.

A team led by prolific international run-scorer Amy Satterthwaite will host Otago in the Twenty20 decider in Rangiora on Saturday.

One day later they're at Christchurch's Hagley Oval against arch-rivals Auckland in the one-day final.

Defending T20 champions Canterbury were clear table-toppers in the shorter form again and will start favourites in the southern derby.

However, Auckland own the one-day title and look poised to fight hard for it.

Canterbury were unbeaten in the one-day championship before being thumped by 148 runs and 108 in twin losses to Auckland last week.

It wasn't enough to overhaul the Cantabrians as top qualifiers.

The home side will look to the prolific batting of Satterthwaite, who scored successive centuries in her last three ODIs for the White Ferns, against Pakistan last November.

She has since shone for Hobart in the Australian Women's Big Bash T20 league and for Canterbury in both forms.
