Trailblazers posted a challenging 190 for five after being sent into bat. Sabbhineni Meghana top-scored with 73 off 47 balls, while Jemimah Rodrigues made a 44-ball 66.

Simran Bahadur picked up two wickets for 31 runs in three overs for Velocity.

Chasing 191, Velocity were restricted to 174 for nine. Kiran Prabhu Navgire top-scored for Velocity with a 34-ball 69. 

KP Navgire's innings got everyone's attention, particularly for the way she was hitting the ball into the stands. She is definitely one for the future and a bright prospect for the Indian team.

At one stage, she looked like taking her team home all alone. 

Poonam Yadav (2/33) and Rajeshwari Gayakwad (2/44) picked up two wickets apiece for the Trailblazers. In the end, the target of 191 proved too much for Velocity and they succumbed to a 16-run defeat.
