The final of the Women's IPL 2020 pits Trailblazers against Supernovas at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday.
Supernovas managed to edge Velocity in the race to make the Women's IPL final, courtesy of a close win against Trailblazers on Saturday. Riding on the exploits of Chamari Atapattu, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side enter the summit clash with momentum on its side.
Trailblazers have been the most impressive of the three teams in the Women's IPL 2020. With an explosive batting unit complementing a well-rounded bowling attack, the Trailblazers might come into the final with the favourites tag attached to them.
Although they did lose their previous Women's IPL game to the Supernovas, Smriti Mandhana is yet to fire for the Trailblazers, which might be a cause of concern for the Supernovas. However, they possess a strong bowling attack, with much expected from Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav on a sluggish track in Sharjah.
With the Women's IPL 2020 trophy on the line, both teams could look to give their best in what promises to be a cracking final on Monday.

Match: Trailblazers vs Supernovas, Final
Date: 8th November 2020, at 7:30 PM IST
Venue: Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah.
Another competitive game between bat and ball awaits the two sides, Trailblazers and Supernovas, in the final of the IPL Women's 2020 in Sharjah.
Although there isn't much swing on offer for the pacers, the spinners have ruled the roost in the tournament. There is likely to be ample turn available for the spinners to make a difference in the Women's IPL 2020 final.
The batters will have to capitalise on the field restrictions, with run-scoring being relatively easier in the powerplay overs. 140-150 should be an excellent total at this venue, and both sides could look to bat first after winning the toss.
