The Women’s T20 Challenge is back and it’s returning in emphatic fashion. As the Board Of Control For Cricket In India eyes the possibility of drawing up a gameplan for a full fledged women Indian Premier League, the Women’s T20 Challenge sees itself being revamped.
Taking centrestage on day 1 of the tournament will be the Trailblazers and Supernovas, two teams who meted out their goods in the opening season of the league in 2018 as well. Well versed with the format, the sides lead by Indian stalwarts Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana are set to stamp their authority on the Sawai Mansingh stadium come 7:30pm as they display their marauding brand of cricket.
What assures us of a cracker of a match at our hands is the personnel that have been bought for the 2019 edition of the one of its kind league in the country. Especially the Supernovas are brimming to the cusp with T20 specialists, players like Harmanpreet Kaur, Poonam Yadav, Taniya Bhatia and Natalie Sciver, a unit that exudes a well assembled side capable of delivering an emphatic team performance.
The side is a seamless blend of sublime batswomen and functional bowlers, with the spin department especially bringing with it both experience and the knowhow of how to operate on Indian wickets. Intertwining Indian players with accountable overseas players perfectly, the side will be an unmovable force this tournament.
The Trailblazers elsewhere heave no dearth of exquisite skill set as well. Smriti Mandhana, Sophie Ecclestone, Suzie Bates and Deepti Sharma among others comprise up a franchisee that has indulged in it some ravishing wordclass, myriad players in it. One thing is for sure, this is set to be an encounter that is a luscious humdinger, one where pure strokeplay will be on display and runs will be amassed by the minute as the batters open their arms to find the boundaries at will.
As the Indian Premier League matches recently conducted on this venue showed, this will be a really good surface for batting overall. The runs will rain down at the Sawai Mansingh stadium and we should fully expect a flurry of boundaries especially given the clean, power packed pinch hitters in both the sides.
Expect the side winning the toss looking to field first. This is a track made for chasing and today will be no different either.
It will be a sweltering night in Rajasthan with the weather set to remain around the 30 degree mark. However what is a relief is the change in forma which sees night matches beginning at 7:30pm rather than the previous afternoon timings for the league. However, Rajasthan is renowned for its inclement heat and the players will be drained as the night carries.
Smriti Mandana, Suzie Bates, Deepti Sharma and Sopie Ecclestone.
Harmanpreet Kaur, Natalie Sciver, Sophie Devine and Poonam Yadav

Under Harmanpreet Kaur’s leadership, the Supernovas look just too power packed an outfit. Be it on the batting front or bowling front, they possess an exquisite mix of exceptional, outstanding players who like to take the centrestage in the T20 format. With batsmen like Harmanpreet Kaur and Sophie Devine who have a strong penchant of runs and a spin battery that sees Indian international players Poonam Yadav and Radha Yadav in it, the Supernovas look not just the clear winners for this match but the entire tournament as well.
