RCBW vs GGW Match Preview

Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine failed to provide a solid start in the previous game, but S Meghana and Richa Ghosh formed a 71-run partnership for the 4th wicket, leading the team to a victorious total. RCB boasts a talented group of all-rounders, such as Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux, and Shreyanka Patil, who will enhance the team's batting lineup.

The team's spin attack is expected to be a major strength. Sobhana Asha claimed a five-wicket haul on Saturday, unsettling the opposition's batting lineup, and will aim to replicate that performance. She will receive support from Georgia Wareham and Shreyanka Patil. Renuka Singh Thakur will spearhead the bowling attack with the new ball.

Beth Mooney showed promising form for the Gujarat Giants by scoring 24 runs, but unfortunately, she couldn't capitalize on it to build a substantial innings. The top order batting also faltered, with Harleen Deol, Veda Krishnamurthy, Phobe Litchfield, and D Hemalatha failing to reach double figures.

It is crucial for at least one of them to step up and perform well for the Giants. The team possesses all-rounders like Kathryn Bryce and Ashleigh Gardner, who can accelerate the scoring in the final overs. Gujarat will also need to excel in their bowling department. Tanuja Kanwar was impressive with 2 wickets to her name.

Support in the spin department will come from Sneh Rana and Gardner, while Lea Tahuhu and Meghna Singh will spearhead the pace attack with the new ball.


Weather Report

The weather in Bangalore is likely to be warm and humid and there will be dew on the ground as the match progresses. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at Bangalore has an even covering of grass but it is a bit dry and slow. Nevertheless, it is a good batting track. The team batting first will look to score at least 175-180 runs to put the opposition under pressure. The pitch plays the same throughout the match. The slower bowlers will get plenty of turn if they pitch in the right areas.
