FIVE wickets falling on 111 in the #WIPL game. Such a pity @SteelyDan66's commentary stint ended halfway through it. The world deserved to hear more of his 'knocked her over. NEL-SONNNN!' lines pic.twitter.com/rdPwAkJFsf— Srinath (@srinathsripath) May 8, 2019
Methinks this WIPL needs some Aussie talent to shore up the batting...— Ric Finlay (@RicFinlay) May 8, 2019
Having opted to bowl first, Velocity bowlers did a good job to keep the Traiblazers to a moderate score of 112/6.
Just can't understand Taylor's approach. You've the power, utilise it. Just don't simply accumulate dots out there, it might affect the non striker big time. Hit out! #WIPL— tan(05) (@fast_hostile) May 8, 2019
Harleen Deol will be a good Odi player, she has the game to build a partnership and it's important in Odi's.— Johns (@CricCrazyJohns) May 8, 2019
In reply, Velocity lost Mathews early but the 15-year-old Shafali Verma gave them a good start scoring 34(31).

Shafali Verma is fifteen??— Rick Eyre on cricket (@rickeyrecricket) May 8, 2019
15-yr-old Shafali Verma took some of the most established bowlers in women's cricket from around the world TO THE CLEANERS.— Annesha Ghosh (@ghosh_annesha) May 8, 2019
Shafali is only a glimpse into what a FULL-FLEDGED #WIPL can do to INDW's cricket.
Well done, #WomensT20Challenge
You've introduced this kid to the world
Everyone get to the TV to see the next star....Shafali Verma is only 15 years and can smash a cricket ball #TrailblazersvVelocity— Lisa Sthalekar (@sthalekar93) May 8, 2019
One expects a 15-year-old girl to be nervous but Shafali Verma showed no signs of it. Such a promising talent. #WIPL— Moulin (@Moulinparikh) May 8, 2019
Danielle Wyatt set it up for his side with a fine 46 before her dismissal triggered a collapse but they scrapped home with three wickets.
I thought Velocity looked like the weakest batting lineup of the three squads on paper but they have produced the most complete batting effort so far. And Danni Wyatt just loves batting in India, doesn't she! #WomensT20Challenge— Vinayakk (@vinayakkm) May 8, 2019
Love how @Danni_Wyatt has gone about this chase. 1) it’s been bloody good to watch 2) clean striking when most others have struggled and 3) its late here in and I really need some sleep! #TBLvVEL #WIPL #hasanyoneseenmithalirush— Frances Mackay (@FrankieMac71) May 8, 2019
What is going on here? Velocity have lost 5 wickets at 111, needing just 2 more to win. 111/2 to 111/7— Tareque Laskar (@tarequelaskar) May 8, 2019
Velocity losing wickets at breakneck speed. They've gone from 111/2 to 111/7 in chase of 113. Lol scenes! Great bowling by Deepti Sharma. #WIPL— Rishad D'souza (@RD_Wisden) May 8, 2019
