IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Supernovas vs Velocity latest updates: Siriwardene bowls the final over. Pandey collects a single off the first delivery, with Luus bringing the equation further down with a boundary off the second. Single off each of the next two balls, with Luus hitting the winning boundary — albeit off a thick outside edge that is too quick for the keeper to grab. Velocity begin their campaign with a five-wicket win over the Supernovas! This is the first time Velocity have beaten Supernovas, having lost both games played between the two sides till date.
Preview: The third edition of the Women's T20 Challenge finally kicks off on Wednesday with defending champions Supernovas, led by Harmanpreet Kaur, taking on the Mithali Raj-led Velocity at the Sharjah International Cricket Stadium.
The Supernovas had defeated the Smriti Mandhana-led Trailblazers in the one-off match at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium in 2018 that marked BCCI’s maiden foray into women’s franchise-based T20 cricket.
The following year saw the tournament expand to a third team and become a four-match affair — including a final — instead of a one-off game. Harmanpreet Kaur and Co once again emerged winners when they beat Velocity by four wickets in the summit clash that took place at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Kaur starred in the final with a half-century as the match went down to the last delivery in what was a relatively low-scoring contest.
This year, the tournament will feature some of the biggest names from the world of women’s cricket, with Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka), Deandra Dottin (West Indies), Danielle Wyatt (England) and Sune Luus (South Africa) among the international stars in action.
Making a return to competitive cricket after nearly a year will be India veterans Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami, who have retired from the shortest format and thus weren’t part of the team’s Women’s T20 World Cup campaign in Australia earlier this year.
Much like the teams involved in men’s cricket since the resumption of the sport earlier this year, the teams had to go into quarantine after their arrival in the United Arab Emirates, where the tournament along with the 13th Indian Premier League (IPL) had to be shifted due to the COVID-19 situation in India.
