Supernovas vs Trailblazers betting tips and prediction for Women’s T20 Challenge 2022
Team Trailblazers is backed by the odds to register a win against Team Supernovas in the opening encounter of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2022.
Given they are the defending champions, Trailblazers carry a psychological advantage to the contest, which is further bolstered by Smriti Mandhana’s impressive record in the previous season (107 runs in three matches).
However, Supernovas will be no simple pushovers as they boast last season’s leading run-getter (Chamari Athapaththu - 117 runs) and wicket-taker (Radha Yadav - eight wickets).
