Women's T20 Challenge 2020 LIVE SCORE, Trailblazers vs Supernovas latest updates: TRAILBLAZERS ARE THE NEW CHAMPIONS! For the first time, we don’t see Harmanpreet Kaur and Co lifting the trophy in the Women’s T20 Challenge as Smriti Mandhana’s side pull off a 16-run win!
Preview: With winning momentum on their side, two-time champions Supernovas will be the firm favourites when they take on Trailblazers in the final of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2020 in Sharjah on Monday.

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led Supernovas started off their campaign on a poor note, suffering a five-wicket defeat against Velocity. Smriti Mandhana’s Trailblazers, on the contrary, had a dream start as they bundled out Velocity for 47 and completed the chase in just 7.5 overs.
Thus, while history is on their side, defending champions Supernovas are expected to face a stiff challenge from Trailblazers.
For Supernovas, Chamari Athapaththu has been in sublime form. The Sri Lankan is the leading run-getter in the tournament with 111 runs from two matches. Her 48-ball 67 against Trailblazers denoted her ability to single-handedly take the game away from the opposition.
Trailblazers, on the other hand, boast of Sophie Ecclestone. With four wickets to her name, Ecclestone leads the wicket-takers chart in the ongoing tournament. The world’s No 1 T20 bowler finished with a match-winning spell of 4/9 in their clash against Velocity.
