Toss Velocity chose to bowl v Trailblazers

Velocity captain Mithali Raj chose to bowl in the second game of the Women’s T20 Challenge, against Trailblazers who had won the first game of the four-match series on Monday. Raj said after the watching the first match from the sidelines, that chasing would be a better option today.

Trailblazers captain Smriti Mandhana said she would have chosen to bat. They “rested” Jhulan Goswami, who, Mandhana said, was out with a “niggle”. Bharati Fulmali, who made her international debut earlier this year, took Goswami’s place as the only change in the XI.

The two players Velocity left out of their 13-man squad were Bangladesh’s Jahanara Alam and India’s Devika Vaidya.

The same pitch will be used today that was used in the tournament opener. This is the only match of the series that has a 3.30pm local time start. The others, like the first game, have a 7.30pm start.

Velocity: 1 Mithali Raj, 2 Sushma Verma (wk), 3 Veda Krishnamurthy, 4 Dani Wyatt, 5 Shafali Verma, 6 Amelia Kerr, 7 Shikha Pandey, 8 Hayley Matthews, 9 S Dibyadarshini, 10 Komal Zanzad, 11 Ekta Bisht

Trailblazers: 1 Smriti Mandhana (capt), 2 Suzie Bates, 3 Harleen Deol, 4 Deepti Sharma, 5 Bharati Fulmali, 6 D Hemalatha, 7 Stafanie Taylor, 8 R Kalpana (wk), 9 Shakera Selman, 10 Sophie Ecclestone, 11 Rajeshwari Gayakwad
