The third game of the Women’s T20 Challenge will see Velocity lock horns with Trailblazers at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Thursday (May 26). It’s a must-win game for the Trailblazers to keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
The Velocity side was clinical on Tuesday, putting up a brilliant show with the bat. Shafali Varma and Laura Wolvaardt scored individual half-centuries while Deepti Sharma made significant contributions. However, they will hope to get better with the ball and keep their winning run going to make it to the final.
The Trailblazers, on the other hand, had a poor outing in their game against the Supernovas. They failed to play as a unit and will have to play their skins out to outperform an in-form Velocity side.
