Vastavam web: Mithali Raj’s Velocity overcame some anxious moments late in the innings before registering a three-wicket win over Trailblazers to keep the race to final in the inaugural Women’s T20 Challenge alive, here on Wednesday.
After their five-wicket win over Supernovas in the tournament-opener on Tuesday, a victory over Velocity would have sealed Trailblazers’ place in Saturday’s summit clash. But it was not to be as Velocity first restricted Trailblazers to 112 for six after opting to bowl and then chased down the target with 12 balls to spare to keep the tournament alive for all the three teams.
In the final league match on Thursday, Velocity will play Supernovas and the outcome of that game will decide the finalists.
Brief Scores: Trailblazers: 112 for six in 20 overs (Harleen Deol 43; Ekta Bisht 2/13). Velocity: 113 for seven in 18 overs (Danielle Wyatt 46, Shafali Verma 34; Deepti Sharma 4/14).
