Women’s IPL 2022: Velocity vs Trailblazers Match Prediction

Venue:  MCA Stadium, Pune
Date & Time: May 26, 7:30 PM

The third and final group stage match of the 2022 Women’s T20 Challenge will be played between Velocity and Trailblazers at the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium, Pune on May 26 (Today).

While Velocity won their previous match against Supernovas by seven wickets, Trailblazers lost against the same team in the tournament opener by a comfortable margin of 49 runs. 

If the Trailblazers are to qualify for the final of the tournament, then they will have to win the upcoming match by a big margin to improve their net run rate as well. 

A score of between 150 and 160 can be a match-winning total on the board. However, the skipper winning the toss might want to bat second.

Indian batter Shafali Verma played an excellent knock of 51 off just 33 balls, stroking nine fours and one maximum against the Supernovas.

England pacer Kate Cross bowled exceptionally well during her last outing. The right-arm pacer gave away just 24 runs in her four-over quota and scalped a total of two wickets for her side.
