Supernovas vs Velocity – Top Fantasy Picks
Mithali Raj – The veteran batsman enjoys a good record against the Supernovas. She remained unbeaten on 40 in one of the matches.
Chamari Atapattu – The cricketer from Sri Lanka was in blistering form during the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup earlier this year. The islander had hit a half-century against the hosts at Perth and will hope to keep up the good work here.
Harmanpreet Kaur – Despite not in the best of form, Harmanpreet Kaur is someone, who will always keep the opponents thinking. A hard-hitter of the ball, Harman will look to lead the Supernovas from the front.
Danielle Wyatt – The batter from England had registered a couple of fifty-plus scores batting for the Southern Vipers in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy. She seems in good nick ahead of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2020.
