Dubai: There is never going to be a dull moment in the final week of the IPL 2020 in the UAE. If the play-offs are not enough, the historical venue of Sharjah Cricket Stadium will add another feather to its cap when they host the Jio Women’s T20 Challenge from November 4 (Wednesday) to November 9.
A four-match affair, the third edition of the tournament will be played between the three teams: Supernovas, Trailblazers and Velocity to be led by Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj, respectively. The cream of Indian women’s cricket will vie for honours along with a smattering of overseas players – though the big names from Down Under like Ellyse Perry & co will be missing as the dates are clashing with the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League there.
The fixtures have been drawn up in such a manner that it does not clash with any of the IPL play-off dates except one on November 5 (Friday). However, the Women’s T20 game will be played in Sharjah from 2 pm that day while the first qualifier will follow at 6 pm at the Dubai International Stadium.
