Smriti Mandhana, PoM: The wicket was on the slower side so we were looking to reach 125 but we got 140 so 15 runs was a bonus. We've seen her (Harmanpreet) doing this stuff from the Indian dressing room (her final over boundaries). It was a bit annoying to be on the receiving end! Jhulan di was confident bowling yorker so we went with her experience. But it didn't come off, so Suzie and I went to her and said to bowl wider. The way the first innings went, our plan was to keep it low because it is hard for the batters to get elevation.

Smriti Mandhana is the Player of the Match for her 90 off 67

Captain Mandhana is delighted!

Harmanpreet Kaur, Supernovas captain: I knew if I stay till the end, I had that confidence that if I stay till the end I can win the game for the team. Sophie bowled the 19th over really well and that changed the game.We bowled really well inthe first 10 overs, but in the last 10, we didn't execute our plans. No doubt that Smriti also batted really well. When we were getting runs, we threw away wickets too, and that why we didn't make it today. I'm really happy both teams played really well, that's what we wanted. Our bowlers did really well.

However Ravi Kalpana with the gloves on ran and broke the stumps. Lea Tahuhu might have made her ground, so she has to relay it to the non-striker's end, but they can run only one, third umpire is referred and but replays reveal Tahuhu was out at the keeper's end. Phew! WHAT A GAME! WHAT A FINISH!

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.

Supernovas: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Anuja Patil, Arundhati Reddy, Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka), Jemimah Rodrigues, Lea Tahuhu (New Zealand), Mansi Joshi, Natalie Sciver (England), Poonam Yadav, Priya Punia, Radha P Yadav, Sophie Devine (New Zealand), Taniya Bhatia (WK).

Raman's crisp letter to the two former captains is sure to ruffle a few feathers given that it has always been the coaches who have either stepped aside or sacked following fallouts with players, most notably ODI captain Mithali Raj.
