RCBW vs MIW Match Preview

Ellyse Perry and Sophie Devine have been the most consistent performers with the bat of the Royal Challengers this season and both have scored 2 half-centuries so far. Devine scored a blistering 99 of just 36 deliveries in RCB's latest outing as they chased down a record target of 185 with more than 4 overs to spare. Smriti Mandhana got a good start in that match but yet again failed to convert it into a big inning.

Heather Knight, Kanika Ahuja, and Richa Ghosh have done a decent job so far lower down the order and the team will depend on them to put up a late attack on the opposition bowlers.

The bowlers haven’t been up to the mark for the Royal Challengers this season. Their most experienced seamer, Megan Schutt, has got just 3 wickets in her 6 outings and has been very expensive.

The success of the Mumbai Indians Women has largely been powered by the all-rounders in the team. Hayley Matthews, Nat Sciver-Brunt, and Amelia Kerr have contributed well with the bat as well as the ball. Harmanpreet Kaur has led the team from the front and is the top run-getter for the team with 228 runs.

The presence of Pooja Vastrakar, Issy Wong, and Amanjot Kaur adds depth to the Indians’ batting. Saika Ishaque has been consistent with the ball and has picked up 12 wickets so far. Along with Amelia Kerr and Hayley Matthews, the trio has rattled a lot of opposition batters.

Issy Wong will lead the pace attack none again and has bowled some good spells so far.


Weather Report

The weather is expected to remain clear with temperatures of below 30 degrees Celsius.

Pitch Report

The surface at the DY Patil Stadium is pretty well-balanced. The consistent bounce and fast outfield provide the batters ample opportunities to score, while the rough patches on the pitch allow the bowlers to use them to their advantage. The average first-inning score here is around 150.
