Trailblazers lost their first game and now face a Catch-22 situation. They will be caught in-between trying most of the players that were benched for the first game vs. facing a must-win game scenario. The scenario is complex for them. They need to defeat Velocity by 30+ runs/20+ balls in order to topple them and set a date with Supernovas for the final. Whereas, all Velocity needs to do is either win & top the table, or just ensure that they don't lose by the aforesaid margin.


VENUE: MCA Stadium, Pune

The venue has been very good for the batters to enjoy success with barely anything available for the bowlers.

PACE OR SPIN:

The pacers have been finding movement early on and the spinners who look to bowl flat & use their arm-balls are succeeding more.

MUST-HAVES:

1) Smriti Mandhana: Will be vital as she could enjoy the Velocity attack

2) Deepti Sharma

3) Shafali Verma: Can take down the spin attack of the Trailblazers

4) Hayley Matthews

5) Laura Wolvaardt

6) Sneh Rana

7) Rajeshwari Gayakwad

DIFFERENTIAL PICKS:

1) Maya Sonawane: Unique wrist-spinner

2) Simran Bahadur: Looks to target the stumps more often & could easily clean up a couple of batters

3) Salma Khatun

4) Ayabonga Khaka

5) Aarati Kedar/Priyanka Priyadarshini: Kedar & Priyadarshini were the highest & 3rd highest wicket-taker respectively in the SWT20 Trophy

C/VC CHOICES:

C - Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Hayley Matthews, Deepti Sharma

VC - Sneh Rana, Maya Sonawane, Rajeshwari Gayakwad
