Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur will lead IPL Trailblazers and IPL Supernovas respectively in the upcoming Women's T20 Challenge Match to be played ahead of IPL 2018 Qualifier 1 on May 22 at the Wankhede Stadium.

The one-off match will feature 26 players, including 10 international cricketers from Australia, England and New Zealand.

Alyssa Healy, Australia's wicketkeeper-batter, Beth Mooney, Australia's opener, Suzie Bates, the veteran New Zealand all-rounder, are some of the international stars in the Trailblazers' set-up.

It also comprises Indian cricketers of the calibre of Mandhana, the southpaw opener and captain of the side, Deepti Sharma, the spinning all-rounder, Jhulan Goswami, the India pace spearhead and the young prodigy, Jemimah Rodrigues.

On the other hand, the Kaur-led side will be made up of Ellyse Perry, the seam-bowling all-rounder, Sophie Devine, the hard-hitting all-rounder, Raj, the mainstay of India's batting line-up, Meg Lanning, Australia's captain and her national teammate, Megan Schutt. It is understood that the match will follow IPL-style rules.

This development comes in the backdrop of BCCI and CoA mulling a potential T20 league for Women cricketers in India. Present and former Indian cricketers, including Raj have spoken out, asking for a tournament along the lines of IPL.

"This is being staged as a well-deserved exhibition to showcase the tremendous depth and capability that women's cricket in India has achieved. We see it build into a women's IPL tournament in a couple of years." CoA chief Vinod Rai was quoted as saying by The Indian Express on May 12 (Saturday).
