Trailblazers registered their first win of Women’s T20 Challenge by handing a 9 wicket defeat to Velocity by 9 wickets on Thursday.

England’s Sophie Ecclestone bowled a match-winning spell as she rattled Velocity’s middle order and restricted them to a mere 47 runs.

Mithali Raj led Velocity lacked intent as could be seen from them losing their first wicket in the 3rd over when Jhulan Goswami bowled Shafali Verma on 13 runs.

Goswami followed by another scalp in her second over by dismissing another opener Danielle Wyatt (3) cheaply.

Velocity batters could merely withstand the mighty Trailblazers’ bowling consisting of Deepti Sharma, Ecclestone and Jhulan Goswami.

With a small target of 48 runs, opener Deandre Dottin scored 29 runs and powered the Trailblazers to the target in just 8 overs.

Sophie Ecclestone became the player of the match for her spell including the wickets of opposition skipper Mithali Raj.

Trailblazers will next face Supernovas in their next match at Sharjah Cricket Ground on November 7.
