The second match of the Women’s T20 Challenge will take place between Velocity and the Smriti Mandhana led Trailblazers at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday. The match will take place during the noon time as the evening will feature another thrilling IPL Qualifier 1 encounter between the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals with the chance for the winner to get in straight into the finals of the IPL 2020.
The round- robin format of the tournament would mean that the three teams- Supernovas, Velocity and Trailblazers will each other once and the top two teams will play each other at the finals.
The previous encounter between the two sides saw the velocity come on top by 3 wickets. The Trailblazers were put to bat first by the Velocity and the excellent bowling of the Velocity made sure the Trailblazers were bundled out for a below score of 112. The velocity with the help of their key players Danielle Wyatt and Shafali Verma managed to chase down the score with 3 wickets in hand.
The teams have faced each other only once and the Velocity head 1-0. Can the Trailblazers seek revenge this time around?

The conditions are well in favor of the sport as clear skies are expected throughout the day and no chances of weather playing spoilsport whatsoever. The temperature is expected to be hovering in the 28- 30 degree range. While, the humidity is on the decline and expected to be around 45- 50 percent mark.
The pitch in Sharjah was in favor of the batsmen to begin with. But with the heavy usage of the pitch it has been on the slower side in the last few matches. Said that, a score of 150 plus looks good for the batting first and with the match scheduled to take place at noon the due would not play a part.
Velocity will be going ahead with the same team that defeated the Supernovas as the team was seen doing a wonderful job in the tournament opener which was played on Wednesday. While, the Trailblazers have not reported any injury and the squad looks good to get going.
