Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: Supernovas vs Velocity, Women's T20 Challenge, 2019

Velocity and Supernovas will face off in the final

Supernovas win to seal final spot:

Supernovas register a 12-run victory which means that on Saturday, there will be a re-match between these two sides for the Women's T20 Challenge title. Rodrigues was the star with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 77 off 48 following which Supernovas came up with a disciplined performance with the ball.

Velocity qualify for the final:

It took until the 19th over for Velocity to reach 117. But since they've reached that, they are not through to the final. With 23 needed in the final over, Can they also pull off a victory?

117: This will be the first target Velocity will aim at, as that will guarantee them a spot in the final even if they lost this game. They are currently 92 for 3 after 15 overs, needing 51 more for a victory.

Poonam Yadav delivers key strike:

After a couple of tight overs, the pressure of the scoring rate got to Wyatt, who in her attempt to play the slog-sweep, is bowled by Poonam for a 33-ball 43. Velocity are 79 for 3 after 12, needing 64 more.

Wyatt continues to find the boundaries:

Sciver has been expensive so far. After being struck for a four by Mithali in her first over, Sciver concedes two fours in her next, with Wyatt continuing to find the boundaries. Velocity are 67 for 2 after 9.

Velocity positive despite wickets:

Wyatt begins in a positive manner, scoring a four and a six off Radha Yadav in the fifth over. Mithali starts the sixth over with a four off Anuja before Wyatt scored another four. She tries another big hit but miscues it, survives. Velocity are 46 for 2 after 6.

Early wickets:

...off her first delivery. Shafali tried to come down the track to the spinner but she played early at a flighted delivery and was bowled for 2. Wyatt just about managed to clear Harmanpreet with a lofted shot for a couple before nailing one over long-off for a six. Mathews departs in the next over, trapped in front by Anuja Patil for 11. Velocity are 22 for 2 after 4.

Supernovas end up with 142:

An excellent final over from Pandey, who despite conceding a four off the first ball, gives away only seven in the over. Supernovas finish with 142 for 3. Will this be enough?

Reprieves for Rodrigues, Devine departs:

Hayley Mathews put down a simple catch while the 'keeper missed a stumping opportunity, both off Amelia Kerr's bowling, allowing Rodrigues to extend her stay as she continued to find the boundaries. Devine, however, falls in her attempt to up the ante, giving Kerr a wicket in the 19th over.

Fifty for Rodrigues:

With two successive fours off Bisht, the 18-year-old brings up her maiden fifty of the Women's T20 Challenge, getting there off 31 deliveries. She has provided a fine platform, powering Supernovas to 109 for 2 after 15.

Kerr breaks promising stand:

Just when Athapaththu looked set for a good score, she lost her wicket. Kerr, the skilful legspinner, lured the southpaw to skip down the track only to be befuddled by the googly and was stumped. End of a fine stand of 55 between Athapaththu and Rodrigues.

Velocity lose review:

Athapaththu breaks the shackles with a four off Bisht in the 10th over. Velocity also waste a review in the same over for a caught-behind appeal when Athapaththu played one inside the line. Supernovas are 63 for 1 after 10.

The 50 comes up in the ninth over. Athapaththu and Rodrigues have tried to build watchfully, concentrating on singles at the moment.

Puniya departs in her bid to accelerate:

Having struck a four over mid-off off Pandey, Puniya attempts another but this time she doesn't clear Veda. Athapaththu gets a lucky break in the next over as Mithali puts down a skier to deny Komal Zanzad a wicket. Rodrigues ends the over with two successive fours, helping Supernovas to 39 for 1 after 6.

Slow going:

Puniya finally manages a boundary, but it's off an inside edge which infuriates Jahanara. She also bowls a couple of wides to give Supernovas extra runs. But it's been slow going so far with the batting side managing only 22 in the first four overs.

The start:

Priya Punia attempted a big hit off Shikha Pandey in the opening over but all she could manage was to clear the mid-off fielder. Athapaththu is successful in her bid to find the boundary, slicing a Jahanara delivery past backward point for the first four of the match. She then executes a fine on drive for another four, helping the Supernovas to 12 for 0 after 2.

Toss and teams:

Mithali Raj wins the toss and asks Supernovas to bat. Velocity bring in Jahanara Alam for Sushree Pradhan while Supernovas are unchanged.

Supernovas (Playing XI): Priya Punia, Chamari Athapaththu, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Natalie Sciver, Sophie Devine, Lea Tahuhu, Taniya Bhatia(w), Anuja Patil, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav

Velocity (Playing XI): Hayley Matthews, Shafali Verma, Danielle Wyatt, Mithali Raj(c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Sushma Verma(w), Shikha Pandey, Jahanara Alam, Amelia Kerr, Komal Zanzad, Ekta Bisht

Build-up:

Hello and welcome to the Live Blog for the Women's T20 Challenge game between Supernovas and Velocity. Harmanpreet Kaur's Supernovas are yet to register a win. Having gone down by a narrow margin to the Trailblazers in their opening game, their NRR is better than that of the Smriti Mandhana-led team. However, they need a victory in this game to get through to the final. Velocity, with a positive NRR, can even get through in case of a loss. But the Mithali Raj-led side will prefer going into the final with the confidence of remaining unbeaten.
