Team Supernovas celebrating a wicket of Velocity batter

Highlights, WT20 Velocity vs Supernovas 2022: Supernovas win by 4 runs

Supernovas win their third title

VEL 161/8 after 20 overs: There was a slight hope VEL to come back in the game as Wolvaardt started the 16th over with a six on Alana's ball. However, Alana took two bact to back wickets leaving Wolvaardt short of partners. Then came Cross 13(7) who smashed two boundaries in Dottin's last over, but was trapped in the later's spell. Wolvaardt hit her second fifty of the tournament off just 34 balls. Soon after Supernovas appeal for Simran's LBW was upheld, she smashed a six. And that was the point when the momentum shifted as Simran seemed unstoppable from there. Vastrakar was hammered in the 19th over as it was a 17-run over with four boundaries. The match which came down to last over, moreover to last ball. But Supernovas registered their 3rd title, winning the final by 4 runs

VEL 97/5 after 15 overs: Alana castled VEL skipper Deepti 2(5) back in the 11th over. After losing five wickets, the chances of VEL to make a comeback is looking meagre. The required run rate has jumped above 13. Wolvaarot hit a boundary after 22 deliveries in the over 12.3. Rashi completed her 4 overs and Ecclestone and Dottin completed their 3 overs each. VEL needs to go aggressive and show intent if they want to register their maiden win of the title from here. 

VEL 61/4 after 10 overs: VEL batting line-up struggled to put runs of the board after the fall of their opening partnership. Just when there was a little hope as two boundaries were hit in Vastrakar's over, Chantham 6(13) got out. The team now needs to make 105 runs in 10 overs which looks a difficult task.

VEL 38/3 after 6 overs: VEL started their innings with a bang with Mansi Joshi giving 17 runs off the first over. However, Dottin trapped Shafali Verma 15(8) and dismissed her in the third over breaking the emerging partneship between Shafali and Yastika. In the same over Dottin bowled four wides. Soon Yastika 13(9) gave away her wicket to Ecclestone. In the last over of Powerplay Ecclestone striked again by sending dangerous Kiran Navgire 0(13) back to the hut. And SPN turned the tables back on their side as VEL struggled to keep the momentum going.

SPN 165/7 after 20 overs: SPN crossed the highest ever total in the final of the tournament. With Harmanpreet hammering 43 off 29 balls and her fellow batters contribution helped to set a total of 165/7 . First Pooja Vatrakar was dismissed for 5(5) by Khakha and couldn't complete her task for which she was promoted up in the line-up. Soon Harmanpreet was sent back to hut by Cross and in the same over Ecclestone got out after scoring just 2 runs. This shifted the momentum in VEL's favour. With two overs to go, Harleen came to bat along with Luus. And soon Luus 3(4) gave away her wicket to Deepti's ball. Harleen too, lost her wicket.

SPN 131/2 after 15 overs: Dottin smashed a half century in style by hitting a maximum on Yadav's delivery. SPN crossed the 100-run mark in the 12th over. She hit two sixes, one boundary in Yadav's over. Dottin and Harmanpreet registered a 50-run partnership with 52 off 29 balls. It was the first time in WT20 that two such partnerships were created. However, in-form Dottin fell prey to skipper Deepti's spell and was bowled after scoring 62 off 44 balls.

SPN 78/1 after 10 overs: Dottin and Punia completed their 50-run partnership in the 7th over. In the eigth over another catch of Dottin, but this time a difficult on was dropped by Bahadur on Simran's ball. While the batters struggled with the bat, a sigh of relief was given to SPN fans by Dottin's six on Khaka's ball. A lot happened in the 10th over, Priya Punia 28(29) got caught out by Wolvaardt on Simran's delivery just after smashing a six. Skipper Harmanpreet came next to bat and there were two free hits in the same over, however they weren't utilized by the SPN batters.

SPN 46/0 after 6 overs: After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, Velocity restricted Supernovas at 46/0. Dottin and Punia were seen setting their foot and building grounds for a stable partnership. While there was just a boundary and a sixes hit during first 5 overs, an easy catch of Dottin was dropped by Deepti Sharma. On Khaka's delivery to Dottin, Deepti went for DRS with a LBW appeal, the ball tracking showed the ball to be just clipping the top of leg-stump and the decision was kept at Umpire's call. Dottin started the sixth over with two back to back sixes but the bowler Sneh Rana gave 3 runs in next four balls.

Harmanpreet Kaur: We were looking to bat only. Chasing is difficult here. We are looking to set 160 on the board and then we have a great bowling side. We have two changes. We need to start well. The first six overs are very important. Getting 40 runs on the board in the first six overs without losing wickets would be good. With wickets in hand, we could look at setting a strong total.

Supernovas Playing XI: Priya Punia, Deandra Dottin, Harleen Deol, Taniya Bhatia(w), Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Sune Luus, Pooja Vastrakar, Alana King, Sophie Ecclestone, Mansi Joshi, Rashi Kanojiya

Deepti Sharma: We're going to bowl first. There is a bit of freedom for the bowlers early on, and that's why we wanted to chase. Chasing is the preferred option as well. Same team. We want to get better with the bat.

Velocity Playing XI: Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia(w), Kiran Navgire, Laura Wolvaardt, Deepti Sharma(c), Sneh Rana, Radha Yadav, Simran Bahadur, Kate Cross, Natthakan Chantham, Ayabonga Khaka

Pitch report -

Deep Dasgupta: We're back on the pitch that was used for the first game. It looks fabulous. An even covering of grass and the batters should enjoy batting on it. From the bowling point of view, it is important to get your lines right. You have to bowl a lot straighter when bowling from the North End. While bowling from the South End, you want to be bowling well outside off. Another high-scoring encounter is foreseen.
