Harmanpreet Kaur will be leading IPL Supernovas against Smriti Mandhana's IPL Trailblazers in the women's T20 challenge match in Mumbai.

"Training Punjabi music on the way home @ImHarmanpreet @vedakmurthy08," the caption says.

The one-of-its-kind match will feature 26 players including 10 international stars from Australia, England and New Zealand. Among those to be seen will be Mithali Raj, Jhulan Goswami, Danielle Wyatt, Alyssa Healy and Suzie Bates.

Australia's captain Meg Lanning, who recovered from her injury earlier in the month, will be a part of Harmanpreet Kaur-led IPL Supernovas.

The women's game has seen a wave of popularity in the country following India's run to the final of ICC Women's World Cup last year. With an eye on growing this wave, the BCCI is hosting the T20 Challenge to provide the women's game a platform alongside its most popular tournament.

Talking about the match, Diana Edulji member of the BCCI's Committee of Administrators said, "We are excited to announce the first-of-its-kind exhibition match involving our women cricketers. BCCI has been pulling out all stops to promote and nurture women's cricket and this is a small yet significant step towards a prospective league involving women's stars in the future."

The match will begin at 2 pm IST, followed by the IPL 2018 Qualifier 1 at 7 pm IST.
