Supernovas vs Velocity Match Prediction | SUP vs VEL Dream11 Team Prediction
Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur, May 09 at 07:30 PM IST
Forget the Vivo IPL 2019, it’s time for yet another crucial encounter in Women’s T20 Challenge 2019. Harmanpreet Kaur led Supernovas will lock horns with Mithali Raj led Velocity in a must-win game at Sawai Man Stadium in the evening.
While it’s the third game of the tri-series competition, the spots for the final are yet wide open. Let’s start with the Trailblazers, who have played both their games and have one win and one loss. Led by Smriti Mandhana, Trailblazers clinched 2 runs narrow win over Supernovas in the first encounter but lost to Velocity by three wickets in the second encounter. Now, the only thing they will be hoping is Velocity win their second game and Supernovas will be automatically knocked out of the contention for the final.
So, it’s quite clear that Supernovas have a do or die situation in front of them. A net run-rate boosting win will do the job for Supernovas.
Velocity, on the top, is somehow safe due to a much better net run rate (+0.678) but will be in no mood to take Supernovas lightly. They will be eyeing on two in two tonight.
The coin will be tossed at 07:00 PM IST.

Supernovas faced a narrow two-run defeat in their first encounter despite some good performances. They are likely to remain unchanged.
Sophie Devine, Nat Sciver and C Athapaththu are sure shot starters, barring last-minute injuries. Taniya Bhatia will keep the gloves while J Rodriguez will once again bat at number three followed by the skipper Kaur.
Radha Yadav did a wonderful job with the ball and will lead the attack alongwith Anuja Patil and Sophie Devine.
Velocity might not tinker the winning combination. However, playing back to back games is a bit challenging.
