Meanwhile, Radha also became the first player to claim a five-wicket haul in the history of the Women’s T20 Challenge. Chasing the paltry target, Supernovas never looked in control as Trailblazers bowlers clicked in unison, jolting them at regular intervals. Trailblazers skipper Harmanpreet Kaur tried her best to help her team cross the line with a gritty 30-run knock. However, she lacked support from her other batswomen. Jemimah Rodrigues, Taniya Bhatia and Shashikala Siriwardene chipped in with 13, 14 and 19 runs respectively, but they all failed to convert the start as Trailblazers fell short by 16 runs in their 20 overs. Bangladeshi off-spinner Salma Khatun – 3/18 – was the wrecker-in-chief for Trailblazers while offie Deepti Sharma and Sophie Ecclestone settled with two and one wickets respectively. Smriti was adjudged the Player of the Final and Radha was named Player of the Series.

    Smriti Mandhana Leading From the Front – ‘Player of the Match’

  • 12:33 AM IST

    Smriti Mandhana | Winning skipper – TRAILBLAZERS | Player of the Match: “The first one-two months of the lockdown was good to spend time with the family. But I think in the last three-four months we got time to go out and start hitting some balls. It was a good time for all of us to go back and work on ourselves which we don’t get usually. My wicket was crucial because this wicket was tough to bat on. The set batsman needed to bat on, 140 was quite achievable and this is what I need to work on in finishing innings. I just told the girls that these are the last 20 overs of the tournament. Because of the covid situation, we don’t know when we’ll come out next, so we wanted to give it our all. It was a hard wicket to bat on and we had quality spinners. 135 would have been ideal but nevertheless, 118 was good on this wicket. This experience was amazing to go out in the nets with the overseas players and our youngsters, It was nice to exchange knowledge and cultures to see how cricket is played in their countries. It was nice for the youngsters to be able to bowl to players like Dottin before being selected into the national side”.

It was a spinning track and the plan was to bowl the normal stock ball. I worked very hard on my bowling in the lockdown, and I think it shows. I was playing consistently even in the lockdown and I was in touch, so it didn’t feel like I was coming back after a long time”.

We couldn’t do it this time but it is part of the game and we’ll take it as a learning. It wasn’t that tough a total to chase but we just didn’t get partnerships. We needed two good partnerships, but we didn’t. It was really tough for me; while fielding only I got hurt but you have got to be there for the team. I tried my best but couldn’t win it for the team. Sitting at home was really difficult, but we have to respect the things that are going on and be safe. Yes definitely, women’s cricket is back”.
