WIPL 2019, Supernovas vs Trailblazers Today’s Match Preview: Supernovas win the toss and opt to bowl first against Trailblazers.
The latest addition ahead of this season is team Velocity, which will be led by Mithali Raj.
Each team will play the other once, with the final to be held on 11 May.
A total of 39 players will take part in the tournament, with each squad consisting of 13 players (four overseas cricketers in each squad).
It was in 2018 when these two teams locked horns for the first-ever time in an exhibition match in Mumbai.
Supernovas emerged victorious in that match, winning by three wickets in a last-ball thriller.
While last year’s match featured Australian players like Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry, none of the players from Australia will take part this time around.
This is majorly because of a dispute between Cricket Australia and the BCCI regarding the men’s bilateral series held earlier this year.
However, cricketers from as many as five countries will take part in the upcoming tournament. These include players from New Zealand, Bangladesh, England, Sri Lanka and West Indies.
The likes of Natalie Sciver, Suzie Bates, Stefanie Taylor among others will take part.
