Analysis

Despite injuries to captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Shabnim Ismail, Mumbai Indians have continued their winning form with one minor hiccup. The powerful batting unit comprising Hayley Matthews, Yastika Bhatia, Nat Sciver-Brunt and Amelia Kerr has scored great runs to maintain the team’s 100% win record while chasing. The majority of these players also contribute with the ball alongside the likes of Saika Ishaque, Pooja Vastrakar and Issy Wong, who have picked up wickets at a regular clip.

Similarly, the Delhi Capitals also have a great squad with a great mix of youth and experience. Despite losing their opening game against Mumbai, the Capitals zoomed back with dominant performances with quality contributions with bat and ball to take up the number one spot on the table. The opening pair of Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma have looked in great touch while star all-rounder Alice Capsey has been in stellar form. Further, the likes of Radha Yadav, Shikha Pandey and Arundhati Reddy have performed also well so far in 2024.
