Pitch Report:


Blaze is led by the Smriti Mandhana who along with Jemimah Rodrigues, and Sophia Dunkley form one of the most dangerous batting line-ups in the tournament. They also have one of the best all-rounders in world cricket in Hayley Williams who had an incredible World Cup in early 2022. Poonam Yadav and Rajeshwari Gayakwad make up their Blaze’s bowling attack that can cause a lot of damage in Pune. 

India women’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur will lead the Nova. Unlike Blaze, Nova doesn’t boast of a lot of batters as they have Deandra Dottin. But they have an abundance of all-rounders with Kaur, Sune Luus, and Pooja Vastrakar who contribute in all departments. Similarly, they have a dominant bowling attack with global stars like Sophie Ecclestone and Alana King who lit up the recent World Cup.
