Pitted as the first major step towards Women’s IPL, the Women’s T20 Challenge kick starts on Monday with Harmanpreet Kaur’s Supernovas taking on Smriti Mandhana-led Trailblazers at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. The other team in the tournament is Velocity, which will be led by Indian women’s team stalwart Mithali Raj.

Four matches will be played among the three teams at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium with Supernovas taking on Trailblazers in the tournament opener. Compared with last year’s lone exhibition match, the 2019 edition is a marked improvement. “It is a step ahead,” Mithali Raj said at the pre-tournament press conference.

“It offers an opportunity for our young players in domestic cricket to interact with some of the best in the world. When you get at least two games, you can field several youngsters. Competing with overseas players could benefit them,” said Mithali Raj, the highest run-getter in women’s international cricket.

Opener Mandhana, captain of Trailblazers and the No. 1 batswoman in the ICC Women’s ODI rankings said it would give seniors chance to play with juniors and see what they had got to offer ahead of the T20 World Cup in February 2020.

“It’s an ideal opportunity for seniors, like us, to play with younger players. With the T20 World Cup just 10 months away, we could assess which players would perform well under pressure,” Mandhana said.

Dashing batswoman Harmanpreet lauded the selection of venue. “It has improved a lot since we last played here four-five years ago,” she said. “The wicket looks good for T20 cricket. We have seen teams making good scores in the IPL,” she said.
