The three-team Women's T20 challenge makes a return to the fold after a gap of one year. Started off as an exhibition event in 2018, this edition will be the first-ever without the presence of Indian veterans Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami.

While Indian T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur will continue to lead her Supernovas, Smriti Mandhana will lead the Trailblazers with all-rounder Deepti Sharma taking over the reins of Velocity from Mithali Raj.

The Trailblazers, come into the five-day event as the defending champions having denied the Supernovas a hat-trick of titles at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium back in 2020. After three editions of the event, Velocity remains the only side to have not lifted the Women's T20 Challenge Trophy.
