The much-awaited Women's T20 Challenge finally got underway on Tuesday (May 22). IPL Supernovas led by Harmanpreet Kaur are taking on Smriti Mandhana’s IPL Trailblazers in the inaugural match at the Wankhede Stadium.
If there was any doubt over the quality and excitement of the event, Supernovas skipper Harmanpreet put it to rest in the third over by plucking stunner to dismiss her counterpart Mandhana.
Trailblazers captain Smriti was playing wonderfully before she went for a heave off Ellyse Perry’s good length delivery in 2.3 overs. Mandhana wanted to clear mid-on but the timing wasn’t immaculate and Harmanpreet flew in the air to pull off a screamer.
Here's the video:
Twitterati were in awe of Harmanpreet’s spectacular effort:
