Harmanpreet Kaur’s Supernovas take on Velocity in the Women’s T20 Challenge 2022 final at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Saturday, May 28. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Supernovas, two-time Women’s T20 challenge champions, started the ongoing season with a fantastic win over defending champions Trailblazers. Riding on Pooja Vastrakar’s 4/12, the team won the game by an impressive 49-run margin.
Although they lost the subsequent match against Velocity, the win in the opening fixture was enough to warrant them a place in the final.
For Velocity, they have been an extremely efficient batting unit, with as many as three players scoring 60 plus runs in just two matches. This includes Shafali Verma, Kiran Navgire and Laura Wolvaardt.
This viable distinction between the two, with one being a batting heavy unit, will make the toss extremely important on Saturday.
