Shikha Pandey401804.50142020
Jahanara Alam402726.7583000
13.1 to AMCJK Athapaththu, taken at long-on. Atapattu swings hard as soon as she sees a length ball with plenty of room, but she gets it right off the bottom of her bat. So no power. Timely strike for Velocity. 89/3
16.4 to H Kaur, taken at short fine leg. That's a huuuuuuge wicket. Alam took out Atapattu just as she was starting to get dangerous. And now she has Kaur. Bowls a tight, wicket-to-wicket line which has worked all night for Velocity. Kaur tries to one-up that by shuffling across and trying to pull the ball very fine. But she only ends up with a top edge that carries to a backtracking fine leg fielder. 111/4
Leigh Kasperek402325.75111110
5.2 to PS Punia, caught at mid-on. No power in that lofted drive. Kasperek has no problem flighting it to Punia, as opposed to Atapattu, and gives this plenty of air around off stump. Punia shuffles across and the intention was to go over mid-on, but it lobs tamely to the fielder, it's Veda Krishnamurthy there.. 30/1
17.3 to P Vastrakar, taken at long-on. Forcing the pace on this pitch is really hard work. Vastrakar steps out to try and clear the straight boundary but she doesn't get enough power on the shot. 117/5
Ekta Bisht402235.5091010
7.4 to JI Rodrigues, castled. Jemimah was clearing her front leg to slog sweep. Bisht gives this plenty of air and beats her in the flight and with the pace - slower - on the ball. She has almost completed her sweep when the ball crashes into the stumps.. 42/2
19.5 to RP Yadav, taken at long-off. The reason a spinner is bowling a last over because without pace on the ball, it is really really hard to hit it. Yadav still tries, coming down the track, but she can't get enough behind it. 126/7
19.6 to SC Selman, nails the stumps and that's that. And emphatic finish from Velocity.. 126/8

Ayabonga Khaka412726.75145020
0.5 to DN Wyatt, she's gone for a duck! What a catch. Back of a length, outside off, and Wyatt tries to cut. Edged, and Bhatia - standing up - takes an excellent catch. Just the start Supernovas would've wanted. 0/1
2.6 to Shafali Verma, falls to the full toss! Khaka wins the battle despite a hat-trick of fours. On middle, and flicked straight to deep midwicket!. 17/2
Shakera Selman401904.75112000
Radha Yadav402516.2572000
12.6 to V Krishnamurthy, taken by extra cover running to her right. This game was Veda or bust and she tried really hard. Even this shot, she was doing her best to place it past Atapattu, but it doesn't turn out that way. Velocity are fading. 65/4
Poonam Yadav402716.75100200
18.5 to S Verma, is that six? No, that's caught in the deep! Full on middle.Goes for a big shot over long off, but she simply doesn't have the power to beat the fielder there. Kaur holds on.. 116/5
Shashikala Siriwardene3.503017.8293100
8.3 to M Raj, full, outside off, and she sweeps across the line, but doesn't have the power.... holes out to deep midwicket! Raj falls for 7 in 19.. 38/3
