Trailblazers vs Velocity: The Trailblazers are the only team without a win on the board, and with the other teams on two points, qualification seems tough for them as they have to look at the Net-run-rate if they are to go through. They collapsed in a chase against the Supernovas, despite making a strong comeback in the first innings, and the margin of defeat seems to be hurting them now.

Velocity though, comes into this game with a straightforward task. They win here and they make the finals, knocking Trailblazers out. They did well against the Supernovas, and have a well balanced line-up.

Key Players

Jemimah Rodrigues

With the Trailblazers looking light on batting, Jemimah Rodrigues will have a crucial role to play. She has a strong technique, and with her side staring at elimination, her technique could come in handy if the Trailblazers are in a tough spot again, as her style of play can help guide the team out of a sticky spot.

Laura Wolvaardt

Laura Wolvaardt has been in some wonderful form over the last few months. She started the Women’s T20 challenge strongly as well, with a fifty in the first game on a slow track. With her side in a strong position, another good knock from her can help them build momentum as they look to reach the Finals.

Trailblazers vs Velocity Match Tips

The Trailblazers did well in the back end of the first innings with the ball, but their middle-order looks concerning, and that could play a huge role in the upcoming game as Velocity look to exploit the minor hole shown in the first game.

Match Prediction: Velocity will win the match.
