DCW vs RCBW Match Preview

Meg Lanning has been in exceptional form with the bat, recording 4 half-centuries in her 8 appearances. She will partner with Shafali Verma at the top of the batting order, aiming to provide the team with a quick start. In the previous match, Verma showcased her brilliance by scoring an impressive 71 runs from just 37 deliveries.

Jemimah Rodrigues and Alice Capsey bring strength to the middle order, while the batting lineup gains depth from all-rounders Marizanne Kapp and Jess Jonassen. Both Kapp and Jonassen have also been outstanding in the bowling department, each claiming 11 wickets this season, making them the leading wicket-takers.

Following closely behind is Radha Yadav with 10 wickets, while Arundhati Reddy and Shikha Pandey have contributed 8 wickets each, solidifying Delhi as the strongest bowling unit.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore enter this match with confidence, having secured back-to-back victories against the Mumbai Indians. Ellyse Perry has been exceptional this season, showcasing her skills both with the bat and ball. She currently leads the run-scoring charts with 312 runs and has also taken 7 wickets.

Perry will play a crucial role in the middle overs, while Smriti Mandhana has been impressive at the top of the order, receiving support from Richa Ghosh. Unfortunately, Sophie Devine and Georgia Wareham have struggled with their batting form, resulting in a couple of losses for the team.

On the positive side, the Royal Challengers possess a strong spin attack with the likes of Shreyanka Patil, Sophie Molineux, and Asha Sobhana. However, their seam department lacks variety.

Weather Report

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

Pitch Report

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.

Notable stats

Jess Jonassen: World Class All-Rounder

Jess Jonassen has been one of the most consistent performers with the ball in this season of the WPL. She is one of the leading wicket-takers with 11 wickets taken at an average of 15.05 and a strike rate of 12.50.
