Trailblazers Team News & Playing 11
Smriti Mandhana was the main highlight in the Trailblazers' win in the tournament opener against the Supernovas. The skipper blitzed a 67-ball 90 to power her side to a competitive total of 140 and she will be expected to carry that form into this match. Harleen Deol, who looked promising in her knock of 36, is another key figure in the team's batting line-up. The team will also be hoping for good contributions from opener Suzie Bates and Stafanie Taylor. Sophie Ecclestone and Rajeshwari Gayakwad had an excellent outing last time and they will be the ones to watch out for when it comes to bowling. Jhulan Goswami and Deepti Sharma are the other two reliable options with the ball for the Trailblazers.
The Velocity are likely to open their batting with Hayley Matthews and Danielle Wyatt, and it will be crucial that they these two take their team off to a flying start. Mithali Raj will probably come in at number three. She is one India's finest batters and the team will want their skipper to lead from the front. Middle-order batting is going to depend mainly on Devika Vaidya and Veda Krishnamurthy. The Velocity's bowling is likely to be led by Shikha Pandey and the onus will be on her to land a few early blows on the Trailblazers. Ekta Bisht is another big threat in this bowling attack and the left-arm spinner is more likely to trouble the opposition and finish with the best figures.
Trailblazers are favorites to win this second game of the Women's T20 Challenge 2019 at 1.72 with Betway, 1.80 with Bet365 and 1.68 with Betrally. Velocity are the underdogs for this game at 1.95 with Betway, 2 with Bet365 and 1.90 with Betrally.
Trailblazers vs Velocity Prediction
The Trailblazers pipped the Supernovas in the opening game of the Women's T20 Challenge 2019 and they will be going into this match high on confidence and momentum behind them. Since all the four games are to be played at the same venue, the Trailblazers will have the advantage of knowing the conditions and nature of the pitch beforehand as compared to the Velocity who will be playing their first game of the tournament. Though the Velocity have a decent bowling attack, it is their batting that seems to be the weak link. The Trailblazers, on the other hand, are a better balanced side and we expect them to secure another win here and confirm their place in the final.
Back Trailblazers to beat Velocity at 1.72 with Betway, 1.80 with Bet365 and 1.68 with Betrally.
