Chamari Atapattu inspired Supernovas to the final of the Women’s T20 Challenge after a two-run win over Trailblazers.


Atapattu hit four sixes in 67 off 48 balls, sharing a 12-over opening stand of 89 with Priya Punia, as her side made 146-6 after opting to bat.

England’s Sophie Ecclestone, needed a boundary to win off the final ball in Sharjah but only a leg bye ensued.

The two teams will meet again in Today’s (9) final.

All three sides in the round-robin event finished with one win and one defeat from their two matches but Trailblazers went through at the expense of Velocity – who Ecclestone took 4-9 against – by virtue of a superior net run-rate.

Sri Lanka left-hander Atapattu, who made 44 against Velocity, struck 29 of the 50 runs the Supernovas made in the power play and reached fifty from 37 balls to give her side the chance to defend their title.
