We’ve come to the culmination of the Women’s T20 Challenge and there could be no better way to wrap up the piquant tournament. The much awaited summit clash of the second edition of the league befittingly sees the Supernovas and Velocity square off against each as they look to get their hands around the enchanting trophy.

For the defending champions, the Supernovas, making it all the way till here couldn’t have been closer. Having lost to the Trailblazers in their opening encounter, they managed to just about get past Velocity by the barest of requisite margins on Thursday to assure themselves of a berth in the final.

On the other hand, new entrants Velocity have taken absolutely no time to come in and establish themselves as frontrunners for the alluring title. The latest side to foray into the prestigious tournament have gracefully stamped their authority with the top-order establishing itself in both the matches the side have played in. Daniel Wyatt and Mithali Raj have built the foundation of an effervescent start for the side, piling on the runs at will to play out the roles of fulcrum for their side.

SUP vs VEL – What numbers suggest?

Despite squandering away a rousing start to their innings, Velocity’s spin trio had ensured that the defending champions had come out on top by 12 runs in their previous match. It was an encounter that saw the Supernovas defend their 142 run total successfully with Velocity restricted to 130 despite Wyatt’s 33-ball 43.

For the Supernovas, Jemimah 77 run innings ensured that Chamari’s Athpaththu’s decadent innings didn’t push the side too back far in the run-rate column.

SUP vs VEL – Key Battles

Harmanpreet Kaur vs Shikha Pandey

One player who is a testament to the delectable strokeplay that the Supernovas have in massive supply is their captain Harmanpreet Kaur. She made the mistake of demoting herself in the last match but she should come out at No. 4 once again to give herself the maximum time to up the ante and enthrall us with her stupendous range of shots.

She’ll however find it a treacherous task to hit Shikha Pandey, one of Velocity’s spearheads in the pace battery. The previous encounter had seen Shikha bowl three dot deliveries to Harmanpreet in the final over, mixing up the delivers extremely well to not give any room to Harmanpreet to work with. She’ll be deployed in the closing stages again and whoever can come out on top of this could construct a winning platform for their side.

Danielle Wyatt vs Radha Yadav

What sets the Supernovas apart from the rest of franchisees partaking in the event is their heavy spin department, something which has served with fortuitously on a Sawai Mansingh surface that has seen the ball come crashing into the batsmen.

And at the top of the pack is Radha Yadav with 3 wickets in 2 matches along with economical bowling seeing the batters finding it improbable to take her apart.

Her encounter against Daniel Wyatt in the final will probably be her toughest adversary till now. The English player has been extremely confident, be it against the faster or slower stuff with her two innings of 46 and 43 allowing Velocity’s middle-order to play pressure free. Radha has at her disposal a wide range of delivers and we expect her to use the widish spinning away from the off-stump ball to try and entice Wyatt into holing out the ball.

SUP vs VEL – Match Prediction

We see the Supernovas making it two final wins of the bounce come the tantalizing affair. What edges the match in their kitty is the fact that they’ve an extremely well rounded unit filled with outstanding players from top to bottom. The batting order has massive depth in it, accompanied by a devastating bowling unit which can take apart sides and show perseverance even when they are going for runs.

Velocity on the other hand reply too much on individual players to come up with the goods for them time and time again. It’s a team game at the end of the day and should see the Supernovas erupt in jubilant and raucous celebrations at the end of the night.
