Match 20 of the Senior Women’s T20 League 2022 sees Himachal Pradesh Women lock horns with Goa Women. C K Pithawala Ground in Bhimpore, Surat will host this exciting contest.

Himachal Pradesh Women were placed in Elite Group C. Having won three of their five games, they finished in second position and qualified for the knockout stages of the competition.

They faced Chandigarh Women in their previous fixture, where they earned a convincing win.

Batting first, the Chandigarh Women struggled a bit as some brilliant bowling from Himachal Pradesh Women restricted them to 104 in their 20 overs. The batters then backed up their bowlers and chased down the total in the 15th over to win the game by seven wickets. They will be looking to repeat their performance against Goa Women on Thursday.

After electing to bat first, the Baroda Women set a target of 137 for the Goa Women. The Goa batters failed to adapt to the conditions as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals and only managed to score 126 in their 20 overs. They need to be on their toes while facing the Himachal Pradesh Women on Thursday.
