The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Supernovas elected to bowl against the Mithali Raj-led Velocity in the final of the Women’s T20 Challenge in Jaipur. They went in with the same XI that beat Velocity two nights ago.
Meanwhile, Raj announced the inclusion of Devika Vaidya in place of left-arm medium pacer Komal Zanzad, thereby adding depth at the expense of a specialist bowler.
Velocity bailed out of a 143 chase on Thursday, instead playing to pip Smriti Mandhana’s Trailblazers for a berth in the finals on net run rate.
Supernovas: 1 Priya Punia, 2 Chamari Atapattu, 3 Jemimah Rodrigues, 4 Sophie Devine, 5 Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), 6 Nat Sciver, 7 Lea Tahuhu, 8 Taniya Bhatia (wk), 9 Anjua Patil, 10 Poonam Yadav, 11 Radha Yadav
