Match Preview: 

The final league stage matchday of the WPL kicks off with the Mumbai Indians taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore at the DY Patil Stadium. Both these teams have been polar opposites in the 2023 season as Mumbai was leading the league for the majority tournament. 

Whereas, Bangalore were the worst-performing team in the WPL as they started the season with a five-game losing streak. Ahead of this game, Mumbai had a tough game against the Delhi Capitals. While the Royal Challengers registered a massive eight-wicket win over Gujarat Giants. After a decent bowling display, Sophie Devine posted a blistering knock of 99 in 36 to help RCb chase down the score of 190 in 15.3 overs.

Pitch Report:

The DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai has consistently produced some batting-friendly tracks throughout the WPL. But the wicket has definitely slowed down in comparison to the first few games and has assisted the spin bowlers.
