Velocity have played 2 matches, winning and losing one each. Aspiring to carry on the momentum from the first match they should give their hundred percent and keep no stone unturned in their effort to win. The impressive batter Deepti Sharma should continue to hit the ball in to the stand as effortlessly as she does and that can prove to be dangerous for the opponents. A prolific fielder, she can bowl some right arm off break and can be a utility cricketer who is one of the best all-rounders in women’s cricket.
On the other hand the Trailblazers have also played 2 matches this season, losing one and winning the other. They will be looking to win this match if they want to have any hopes of progressing further and not get knocked out of the tournament. This is a crucial match for them, so they will have to give it their blood and sweat. Smriti Mandhana, the Left handed prolific batter, possesses a copybook technique and can play every shot in the coaching manual. The, young supremely talented prodigy, was fast tracked into the Maharashtra team at the age of 11 and in 4 years got inducted in the women’s Indian cricket team. She was also named the Indian women’s cricketer of the year 2018. Backbone of the women’s Indian cricket team, she is an asset.
