In the second match of the fourth edition of the Women’s T20 Challenge, Harmanpreet Kaur’s Supernovas will be up against Deepti Sharma’s Velocity. While Harmanpreet Kaur has shown her capabilities as a leader, it will be interesting to see how Sharma reacts to the captaincy duties assigned to her. Both teams have good players which will make up for an interesting clash.
The MCA Stadium pitch will help the batters with the pitch fast-paced. However, bowlers, especially spinners, will play a crucial role in the match between Supernovas and Velocity with it being a day game.
Supernovas have formed a good team with quality all-rounders in the mix. Harmanpreet Kaur’s experience will also come in handy for them. They also have quality overseas players in the form of Deandra Dottin, Sune Luus, and Sophie Ecclestone. Alan King’s experience with Australia in the recently concluded ODI World Cup will also come in handy for Supernovas. The young pace attack with Meghna Singh and Mansi Joshi in the mix also looks settled.

With a young captain in the form of Deepti Sharma, Velocity will be pumped up to take the field against Supernovas. Velocity have got two really good openers in Shafali Verma and Laura Wolvaardt. Both these batters possess the ability to tear apart the opposition bowling lineup. Deepti Sharma, Yastika Bhatia, and Sneh Rana will play a crucial role in the middle order. Velocity also have a good bowling attack with Kate Cross, Ayabonga Khaka, and Radha Yadav in the mix.
