Struggling to reach the final of the Women’s T20 Challenge, the Smriti Mandhana-led team Trailblazers has set a target of 191 runs in the last match against Velocity. After winning the toss, Velocity captain Deepti Sharma chose to bowl first.

Trailblazers’ brilliant batting in the last league match

Trailblazers needed big scores to improve their net run rate in the tournament and their batting was excellent. Electing to bat after losing the toss, Trailblazers scored 190 runs for the loss of 5 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Opener Meghna played a brilliant innings of 73 runs in 47 balls with the help of 7 fours and 4 sixes.

However, the Trailblazers did not have a good start and skipper Smriti was dismissed for 1 by Kate Cross. Jemima Rodrigues, who came to the crease after the cheap dismissal of Smriti Mandhana, played a good part of Meghna and the two shared a 113-run partnership for the second wicket. Jemima Rodrigues scored 66 runs in 44 balls.

Haley Mathews and Sofia’s finishing innings

Hailey Mathews and Sophia Dunkley did the finishing work and played fast innings for the trailblazers looking to be in a strong position after scoring 157 for 3 in 17 overs. Sofia became the victim of Simran Bahadur by scoring 19 runs in 8 balls and Healy 27 runs in 16 balls.

All the bowlers proved costly from Velocity’s side. Simran Bahadur got 2 and Kate Cross, Sneh Rana and Ayabonga Khaka got 1-1 wickets.
