Power Players for Supernovas vs Velocity Match
2022 has been splendid for Pooja Vastrakar. Last night she produced an encore of her World Cup performance, shining with both bat and ball. She scored a quickfire 14 at the death and then complemented it with terrific bowling figures of 4 for 12, eventually winning the Player of the Match award.
All eyes will be on the ever-improving, belligerent batter Shafali Verma. In 29 T20Is, she has blasted 700 runs at an average of 25 and a strike rate of 141. She is, by her approach, a genuine boundary hitter. There’s some bonus fantasy points up for grabs.
Smart Picks Players for Supernovas vs Velocity Match
Deepti Sharma has been India’s star all-rounder across formats for over half a decade now. For an off-spinner to open the bowling and also smother the batters at the death is a daunting task, but Deepti has the talents and mindset to get the job done. With the bat, she has a reputation for rescuing her team from troubles. The multi-skilled Deepti will be a popular pick today.
126 of 163 runs came from the bats of the top four batters: Priya Punia, Deandra Dottin, Harleen Deol, and Harmanpreet Kaur. Supernovas came with an intention to go all guns blazing, already reading the conditions well. Expect nothing less tonight. They boast of both style and power.
The elegant Laura Wolvaardt will fancy batting on this pitch. In the recently concluded Invitational League, she scored two fifties in the last four games. Much like Shafali, she likes to dictate terms to the bowlers.
Sophie Ecclestone is the No. 1 bowler in ICC T20I Rankings for a reason. She maintained her tight lines, for which she was rewarded with 2 wickets. She gives no room to the batters to free their hands.
Velocity feature the experienced pace attack duo of Kate Cross and Ayabonga Khaka. Between them they have taken 228 international wickets.
Alana King spun a web with her masterful bowling. Although she conceded 30 runs in 4 overs, it was her courage to flight the ball and deceive the batters in guile that fetched her 2 wickets.
Sneh Rana has not played much T20 cricket, but her dual skills make her a key player. Her importance in fantasy cricket depends on what number she bats at.
Supernovas vs Velocity Match Preview
Supernovas, the two-time champions, have started the season with an emphatic victory. However, to book a spot in the final and avoid the hassle of net run-rate, they will have to win tonight’s game. Given the team combination of Velocity, it won’t be an easy task for Supernovas. We are in for a crackerjack of a game.
