DCW vs RCBW Team Previews

Delhi Capitals Women

For the second consecutive season, the Delhi Capitals has been the most successful franchise in the WPL and finished at the top of the points table, thereby gaining a direct entry to the finals.

Meg Lanning is in brilliant form with the bat and has scored 4 half-centuries in her 8 outings. She will open the batting Shafali Verma and look to give the team a brisk start. The latter was in excellent touch in the last match as she scored 71 runs from just 37 deliveries.

Jemimah Rodrigues and Alice Capsey add heft to the middle order, while all-rounders Marizanne Kapp and Jess Jonassen add depth to the batting. The duo has also picked up 11 wickets each, making them the top wicket-takers of the season.

Radha Yadav is close behind with 10 wickets, while Arundhati Reddy and Shikha Pandey have 8 each, making Delhi the best bowling unit.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women

The Royal Challengers have had a rollercoaster ride this season. The team started on a strong note but saw a lull in their form mid-season. The team finished third on the points table and had to take the longer route to the finals.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming into this contest on the back of consecutive wins over Mumbai Indians and will be feeling pretty confident. Ellyse Perry is in excellent all-round form this season. She is the leading run-scorer with 312 runs and has also picked up 7 wickets.

She will be a key performer in the middle overs. Smriti Mandhana has played some good knocks at the top of the order and will be supported by Richa Ghosh. Sophie Devine and Georgia Wareham haven’t been in the best of forms with the bat and that has cost the team a couple of matches.

The Royal Challengers have a strong spin attack thanks to the presence of Shreyanka Patil, Sophie Molineux, and Asha Sobhana. However, the seam department does lack variety.

DCW vs RCBW Toss Prediction

7 of the 10 matches played on this ground this season have been won while batting first. We, therefore, think that the winner of the toss will likely opt to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Delhi seems to have gotten a bit difficult to bat on as the last 4 matches have seen an average first-inning score of just 135. The bounce is a bit uneven as there are some bare patches on the surface and the bowlers who bowl a tight line will be rewarded with wickets.

That said, the batters will be able to play the shots once they get their eye in. Overall, we can expect an engaging contest between the bat and the ball.

The weather in Delhi is likely to be overcast with temperatures of under 25 degrees. 


DCW vs RCBW Betting Tips

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have played some excellent cricket and have rightly found a place in the finals. However, we feel that the Delhi Capitals have an edge in this contest as they have a better balance of players.

Bet on the Delhi Capitals W to win.

    Royal Challengers Bangalore to win the toss



The Delhi Capitals haven’t enjoyed the best of luck when it comes to the toss as they have lost in 5 of the last 6 outings. Hence it seems prudent to back the Royal Challengers for this bet.

  1. Parimatch


    Ellyse Perry to be the top batter for Royal Challengers



Perry has been in excellent form with the bat of late and has been the top batter for her team in the last 2 matches. She is the top scorer of this season and has an average of 62.50. Seeing her form, Perry has a good chance of being the top batter yet again.

  1. Stake


    Marizanne Kapp to be the top bowler for Delhi Capitals



Marizanne Kapp is the joint-highest wicket-taker of this season with 11 wickets. She has picked up at least 2 wickets in 4 of her last 5 matches and was the top bowler for the team in the latest match. As the pitch in Delhi does tend to help the seamers, we are backing Kapp to be the top bowler.
