Mithali Raj's Velocity will take on Harmanpreet Kaur's Supernovas in the opening fixture at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. In the first toss, Velocity have opted to field first against defending champions Supernovas. Owing to the pandemic, WT20C 3.0 has been moved to the UAE akin to the men's IPL.
The norm has been to squeeze the games in the Play-offs window and that tradition has been retained. But this year, the league is colliding with WBBL and as a result, some of the top-tier cricketers will be giving it a miss. Harmanpreet was in top form in the last edition scoring two half-centuries in three matches and in the final.
Supernovas (Playing XI): Priya Punia, Chamari Athapaththu, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Shashikala Siriwardene, Taniya Bhatia(w), Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav, Shakera Selman, Ayabonga Khaka
Velocity (Playing XI): Shafali Verma, Danielle Wyatt, Mithali Raj(c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Sushma Verma(w), Sune Luus, Manali Dakshini, Shikha Pandey, Ekta Bisht, Leigh Kasperek, Jahanara Alam
