|Delhi Capitals Women vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Women, 11th Match, 7:30 PM|
|Date||March 13, 2023, Monday|
|Venue||DY Patil Sports Academy|
The 11 contest of Women’s Premier League 2023 will feature Delhi Capital Women lock horns against the bottom-placed star-studded side - Royal Challengers Bangalore Women at the DY Patil Sports Academy on Monday, March 13th. With both teams in parallel form, let us take a detailed look at the preview, pitch report, playing XI and much more.
Delhi Capitals Women have looked like one of the best sides in the competition so far. Having won 2 of their 3 games so far, another win could potentially take them to the top of the points table. Moreover, their confidence will be beyond the 7th sky as in their previous game, they not only restricted Gujarat Giants Women’s team to a total of mere 105 but even chased the total with all 10 wickets in hand.
It is safe to state that the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women’s team has proved to be the most depleted side of this edition. They have not only played the most games but have also failed to even register a single win against their name. In their previous matchup, the UP Warriorz Women's side beat them handsomely by 10 wickets. They are currently placed last in the points table with 0 points at the moment.
Indian International star Shafali Verma has been the most explosive weapon at Delhi Capital Women’s team disposal. Not only did she slam 76 runs at a strike rate of 271 in the previous game but even ended the run chase in the 8th over. On the other hand, Marizanne Kapp is entering Match 11 after taking a 5-wicket haul against the Gujarat Giants Women.
The Australian Women-woman - Ellyse Perry is entering the same game after scoring an impressive 52-run inning in Match 8. While the batting order of this team has managed to keep up with the pace of the game, the entire bowling unit has failed to take wickets in most games. Even in the previous match none of the 7 bowlers used could register wickets against their name.
The wicket at DY Patil Sports Academy help the fast bowlers to get some swing early on in the game, which will provoke both captains to field first after winning the toss.
The relative humidity in Bombay will be low, peaking at 38% whereas the temperature will be around 22 to 27 degrees enduring that we get a perfect evening of cricket.
Delhi Capitals Women: Meg Lanning (C), Shafali Verma, Taniya Bhatia (Wk), Jess Jonassen, Shikha Pandey, Jemimah Rodrigues, Marizanne Kapp, Radha Yadav, Laura Kimmince Harris, Tara Norris, Minnu Mani
Royal Challengers Bangalore: Smriti Mandhana (C), Poonam Khemnar, Renuka Singh, Kanika Ahuja, Indrani Roy (Wk), Komal Zanzad, Ellyse Perry, Heather Knight, Megan Schutt, Sahana Pawar, Sophie Devine
After the end of the previous game for both the respective teams there are no injuries that are being reported. However, for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, several new players could get a chance given that the remaining competition looks like a lost cause. This is why both Indrani Roy and Poonam Khemnar can be brought into the starting XI for Match 11. Moreover, Megan Scutt could return to the bowling lineup for Erin Burns.
The DC Women and RCB Women’s team have only locked horns once since the inauguration of the Women’s Premier League wherein the former team won by a comfortable margin of 60 runs.
|Total||DC Women||RCB Women||Tie||No Result|
|Batsmen||Meg Lanning (C), Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight|
|All-Rounders||Ellyse Perry (Vc), Marizanne Kapp, Jess Jonassen|
|Bowlers||Shikha Pandey, Radha Yadav, Megan Schutt|
The Australian International star has not disappointed her fans as she has justified her hype in every sense. Being the tournament’s leading run-scorer with a tally of 206 in 4 games, Lanning is currently playing at an average of 68.67 and has even scored 2 half-centuries up until this point.
One of the most explosive opening batsmen in women's cricket, Verma is not far behind her partner in the most run tally as she herself has scored 179 in 4 games and is currently placed second only behind Meg Lanning in the tally.
Being one of the greatest ever players to play the sport, Ellyse Perry’s team might not have been able to produce good results but she is currently on the back of an impressive half-century in the previous game and will be itching to score big before this tournament ends.
The 26-year-old left-handed opening batter has got off to good starts but has failed to convert them into big innings. However, after her team is placed last on the points table, Mandhana will be seeking redemption in Match 11.
