Toss Supernovas chose to bat vs Trailblazers
However, Smriti Mandhana, the Trailblazers captain, was looking to bowl first and she got what she wanted despite losing the toss.
There was an even covering of grass on the surface, with not a lot of turn likely for the spinners.
While Supernovas have won the Women’s T20 Challenge twice, Trailblazers are the defending champions, having clinched the title when it was last played in 2020.
