Preview

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women are set to play against Mumbai Indians Women in the ninth match of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The RCB-W will arrive at this fixture on the back of a tough loss against the DC-W, not being able to chase down a massive score on the board. Meanwhile, the MI-W suffered a big loss to the UPW, who chased down a par score against them with ease.

Team News

MI-W captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Shabnim Ismail are not confirmed to play in the upcoming match after they sat out of the previous match due to their respective niggles, while RCB-W’s Ellyse Perry is doubtful to play after she missed out previously due to illness.

Pitch Report

The pitches at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru have delivered some compelling cricket in the WPL 2024, with scores over 190 and below the 120 mark too. The average first-innings score at this venue in the WPL 2024 after seven matches is 148, which is something both Royal Challengers Bangalore Women and Mumbai Indians Women will be looking to get past, to set up a competitive contest this weekend.

Team Analysis

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women

Despite RCB captain Smriti Mandhana's incredible batting efforts in pursuit of the 195-run target set by Delhi Capitals Women, the absence of Ellyse Perry was felt by the team. The RCB-W bowling department had a tough outing earlier in the match, except for a couple of wickets each from Sophie Devine and Nandine de Klerk.

Mumbai Indians Women

Hayley Matthews took charge of the Mumbai Indians Women's innings to help them post a competitive first innings score after the captain Harmanpreet Kaur sat out of the match against UP Warriorz due to a niggle. Although, the bowling effort from the MI-W was poor, with their star pacer Shabnim Ismail on the sidelines due to a niggle, which led to the opposition chasing down the score against them in a comfortable manner.
