This time the IPL is being held in the United Arab Emirates and the final match will be played on Tuesday in which Mumbai will face Delhi. However, the final of the Women's Challenge Cup was played on Monday in which only the Mumbai cricketer's team became the champion. The Trail Teasers defeated Supernova by 16 runs to win the Women's T20 Challenge Cup. The real hero in this match was Indian superstar Smriti Mandhana, who gave her team a victory by performing her first great performance.



Mandhana made a strong start to the match with Dotin and that is why the Trail Blazers were able to score 118 runs. The score could have gone much further, but the team stumbled to 71 for one in 11 overs. Mandhana hit 68 off just 49 balls, which included three sixes.

After Mandhana was dismissed, spinner Radha Yadav took five wickets. Radha conceded just 16 runs. However, the 119-run target also overshadowed the supernova. Harmanpreet Kaur's team could score only 102 runs. Dhana was declared Player of the Match. He received the trophy as captain of the winning team. When he received the trophy from Sourav Ganguly, Chairman of the Board of Cricket in India, he was very happy because Mandha has been a fan of Ganguly since childhood.

Not only that, early in her career, Mandha was a staunch batsman, but instead of imitating Ganguly, she became a left-handed player.
