The biggest match of the WPL (Women’s Premier League) 2023 is here and the two undefeated teams, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will clash tonight at the DY Patil Stadium. Dew has had a major role in all the matches played in the DY Patil Stadium and the chasing team will find batting easier in the second half. Though both teams have good balance in their squad, the captain winning the toss will see to put the opposition into bat and use the Dew in their favour when they chase the target.

Mumbai Indians will have an edge over Delhi on the weight of the heavy 9 wicket win with almost 6 overs to spare against RCB.

Delhi Capitals Batting                                              

Power play – key moments

  • Mumbai Indian Sensation Saika Ishaque gave the all important 1st Wicket which put the brakes for Delhi in the powerplay. Bowlers kept good line and length and took 2 early wickets. Delhi could manage only 29

Batting and bowling – key moments

  • Marizanne Kapp wicket further dented the Delhi scorecard.
  • Jemimah Rodrigues showed some fight with Meg Lanning but her wicket also further brought down the expected target for Delhi.
  • Meg Lanning and Jemimah found scoring at a fair clip tough but meg lanning did push the run rate a bit.
  • Once Meg Lanning lost her wicket Delhi batting fell like dominos and Delhi ended up with a below par score.

 Mumbai Indians – The Chase!!         


Key moments

  • Mumbai Indians started their Chase with Yastika Bhatia playing the aggressor and Hayley Mathew’s watched from the non-striker end.
  • After Yastika’s quick fire knock Mathew’s and Nat Sciver maintained the momentum and Harmanpreet too joined the fun to Chase down the target with 5 overs to spare.

Mumbai Indians are now table topper with an enviable run rate and 6 points. They look a cut above the other 4 teams in the league and have started to put their stamp of authority and weight on the tournament with bat ball and on the field

If there is one flaw or concern in the Mumbai Indians camp, it has to be the bowling form of Amelia Kerr. With Chloye Tryon waiting for an opportunity Amelia Kerr would need to step up her game.

With WPL already unearthing hidden domestic talents like Shriyanshi , Saika Ishaque and others,  the tournament is the best thing that has happened to Indian women’s cricket .
