Trailblazers beat Supernovas by 16 runs in the final to lift its maiden Women's T20 Challenge title in Sharjah on Monday.

Opting to field, Supernovas restricted Trailblazers to 118/8 despite Smriti Mandhana's 49-ball 68. Radha Yadav claimed the maiden five-wicket haul (5/16) in the short history of the competition to deny the final flourish to Trailblazers' innings.

Salma Khatun (3/18) and Deepti Sharma (2/9) strangled Supernovas in the chase to close out the win for Trailblazers.

Supernovas skipper Harmanpreet Kaur battled with a limp through her knock of 36-ball 30 but ultimately fell in the 19th over to Khatun.
