Pitch Report

As was seen in the Indian Premier League, the Sawai Mansingh stadium has been guilty of throwing our way far too many inconsistent surfaces. It’s become an unknown entity now with it becoming extremely hard to gauge the surface before each upcoming encounter.

Monday’s encounter had surprisingly given us a low, slow and dry pitch, one that got worse as the match progressed. However, under the scorching and sweltering Rajasthan sun, the pitch will be baked, giving us a sluggish and flat one where the cracks will disappear. Expect this to be a batting-friendly surface where pure, clean and emphatic strokeplay will be rewarded.

Trailblazers – Smriti Mandhana, Suzie Bates, Deepti Sharma and Sopie Ecclestone

Velocity – Amelia Kerr, Mithali Raj, Ekta Bisht and Danielle Wyatt

Probable Winner

The Trailblazers showed immense composure with Sophie Ecclestone keeping the bowling wicket to wicket in the final over to restrict the Supernovas to 138 in the opening match of the tournament. That win will imbed them with immense confidence ahead of their second match against Velocity on Wednesday.

Expect the table toppers to continue building on that momentum and take a gigantic step forward towards qualifying for the final. They far outweigh Velocity in terms of pure experience and skill set pool in the league and these factors will heavily work in their favour come the encounter. We expect the Trailblazers to make it two wins on the bounce and sit pretty at the top of the ranks.
