The third match of the Women's IPL 2020 pits Trailblazers against Supernovas at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Saturday.
Trailblazers stayed true to their name as they blazed to a nine-wicket win in their IPL 2020 opener against Velocity earlier in the week. Riding on the exploits of their bowling attack, the Trailblazers were able to get the all-important win and will now be looking to top the IPL 2020 table with another win on Saturday.
Their opponents, Supernovas, have lost their only IPL 2020 game so far, with the Velocity duo of Sushma Verma and Sune Luus pulling off a heist at the death. Apart from their quality bowling attack, the Supernovas batting comprises of the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues, who will be key to their fortunes as they seek to qualify for the Women's IPL 2020 final.
Trailblazers are the undoubted favourites heading into the final league game of the Women's IPL 2020 in what should be in for a very competitive game in Sharjah. With either side looking to make the final in the Women's IPL 2020, another entertaining contest beckons in the riveting competition.

Match: Trailblazers vs Supernovas, Match 3
Date: 7th November 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Spinners are expected to rule the roost in this Women's IPL 2020 game, as the pitch in Sharjah offers a lot of turn and bounce.
With not much swing on offer for the pacers, the batters will be wary of the spinners, as the pitch tends to get slower as the match progresses. Dew is also expected to play a part in the latter half of the game, which should pave the way for a more even contest.
Both teams will ideally look to bat first and make the most of the batting conditions, with 120-130 considered to be a par score at this venue in the Women's IPL 2020.
