Match Preview

The seventh clash of the Women’s Premier League 2024 will feature Royal Challengers Bangalore locking horns with Delhi Capitals Women. The match will take place at Royal Challengers’ home ground M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Challengers have had a disappointing season last year, but made a stronger comeback this year, with having won two back-to-back matches. 

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals had a fantastic season last year, as they finished as runners-up. However, they kicked off their campaign on a disappointing note as they lost the 2023 finale re-match with the reigning champions, Mumbai Indians Women. 

Pitch Report

The M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is known as the batters’ paradise and is expected to provide the batters with the same favourable conditions to hit big. The stadium is set to host the first 13 games of the WPL 2024; thus, several high-scoring battles are expected to be fought. The pitch remains almost the same throughout the 40 overs, with dew playing a crucial role in the evening. Needless to say, it provides the chasing team with some advantage. 

Team Analysis

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women 

RCB led by Smriti Mandhana ended up at the bottom in the WPL 2023 points table. The team has several crucial batters including the likes of Mandhana, Sophie Devine, Ellyse Perry, Nadine de Klerk, and Richa Ghosh. Not only this, but they also have a strong bowling lineup as well, which features Kate Cross, Renuka Singh Thakur, and Georgia Wareham. In the previous match, Mandhana displayed exemplary leadership and set a brilliant tone for the team’s performance.

Delhi Capitals-W 

Meg Lanning is leading Delhi Capitals in the second edition of the Women’s Premier League. The team has a strong batting lineup including Lanning, Alice Capsey, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Varma, and Taniya Bhatia. On the other hand, names such as Jess Jonassen, Radha Yadav, Marizanne Kapp, and Annabel Sutherland are key members of the bowling lineup. All eyes will be on Lanning and Varma as they built up a strong 119-run partnership and set a high bar for the entire team.
