DCW vs MIW Match Preview

While the Capitals have managed to retain most of their core team, they have also injected fresh talent into the squad as they look to put up an even better performance this year. Meg Lanning, who was the leading run-scorer of last year will once again lead the team.

She, along with Jemimah Rodrigues and Shafali Varma makes for a formidable top order. Marizanne Kapp was excellent in the recent ODI series against Australia W and will be joined by Annabel Sutherland and Jess Jonassen in the middle order.

The Capitals have plenty of variety in the bowling lineup thanks to the all-rounders mentioned above. Titas Sadhu, Arundhati Reddy, Shikha Pandey, and Ashwini Kumari will feature in the pace attack, while Alice Capsey will lead the spin department and will be supported by Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav, and Jess Jonassen.

Just like the previous season, the Mumbai Indians have bet heavily on the all-rounders. Hayley Matthews and Nat Sciver-Brunt were among the top 5 run-getters last season and also picked up plenty of wickets. Amelia Kerr also played an important role with the ball while scoring important runs.

They will be joined by Harmanpreet Kaur to make up a formidable batting unit. While the team has plenty of options when it comes to spin, they are a bit short when it comes to seam attack. The Mumbai Indians have tried to bridge the gap by roping in Shabnim Ismail but they lack quality Indian pacers. 

Weather Report

The weather is likely to be clear with temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Bangalore has traditionally been a high-scoring venue and we can expect a similar pitch for this match. While the seamers can expect some help from the surface when the ball is new, there is very little margin for error. The outfield is quick and the batters will be able to play the big shots with ease. The team batting first will aim for the 200-run mark.
