The stage is all set for the first-ever women’s T20 challenge in the history of Indian cricket. The match will be played at Wankhede stadium tomorrow at 2:00 pm ahead of the Qualifier 1 between Chennai and Sunrisers.
BCCI has already released the squads for both the teams namely IPL Supernovas and IPL trailblazers. The teams will be headed by Indian stars Harmanpreet and Smriti Mandhana who have been performing well in the International arena. Several International stars like Danielle Wyatt and Ellyse Perry will also be a part of this match and it will be interesting to watch how Indians blend with the International flavour in the first match of its kind.
Meanwhile, the Indian skipper has a word for the Women’s team. He said ” This match should be the trailer for the league. All the very best to Smriti and Kaur. Take your teams on the field and play with passion. Make people look forward to many games like this. I will be keenly watching the game.”
It is to be noted that Virat will be leaving England to represent Surrey in the county cricket. He will be playing for three test matches and ODI’s.
