The weather is clear with a few clouds and will be rather warm throughout the Supernovas vs Velocity game.
The surface used for the first game was a belter early on, but started taking spin as the ball got older. Spin will play a huge role and batting first will be a better option.

Supernovas are likely to remain unchanged while the Velocity team will be playing its first game.
Taniya Bhatia has had a silent World Cup and was pretty silent in the first game as well. She is a talented player with the ability to change an innings in the back end, and if she is given a fair chance at batting she is likely to make a strong impact on the innings.
Kate Cross is another player who is brilliant all over the World. She is a very handy bowler, is honored a lot in India, and as a player she will be eager to perform in the country.
Although Velocity are yet to play a game, the bowling from the Supernovas looks pretty strong while the top-order batting has also been impressive.
Match Prediction: Supernovas will win the match.
