Sophie Ecclestone is the player of the match for her match winning performance of 4/9 in 3.1 overs
Trailblazers win the match by 9 wickets

Top notch performance with the ball, top notch performance with the bat too for Trailblazers. Playing their very first game in this edition, they bowled the experienced Velocity side for a paltry innings of 47 and chased it down in style.

Coming in to chase, Trailblazers looked all settled to chase down the total. They took a cautious approach to the chase and started off with a few singles. They knocked around the bowlers around for a few singles and doubles and looked to give respect to the bowler when needed.

Smriti Mandhana looked to take the aggressive approach and handed here wicket as a gift to Leigh Kasperek. The young Richa Ghosh played a strong ally to the experienced Deandra Dottin, who looked to play the big strokes and end the match early. In the end, Ghosh got the ball where she desired to and sealed the deal with a maximum to win the match with 73 balls to spare.

The Velocity bowling contingent couldn't match the bowling class that Trailblazers exhibited in the first innings. Leigh Kasperek was the only bowler to get a wicket as none of the other bowlers could produce a chance for their side.
