Gujarat Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore are scheduled to face off at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday, March 6, for match 13 of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024. The Giants have endured a disappointing campaign thus far, losing all four matches they’ve played and finding themselves at the bottom of the points table. With time running out, each match is becoming increasingly critical for Beth Mooney and her team, almost resembling knockout games.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore have had a reasonably good run in WPL 2024, winning three out of their five matches and suffering two losses. Despite a shaky period after two initial victories, the team, led by Smriti Mandhana, bounced back with a 23-run win against UP Warriorz on Monday.

In their previous encounter in Bengaluru, Gujarat Giants managed only 107/7 in 20 overs, with Sophie Molineux (3/25) and Renuka Singh (2/14) impressing with the ball for Bangalore. In response, Bangalore comfortably chased down the target, with Smriti Mandhana leading the charge with a quickfire 43 off 27 balls, supported by Sabbhineni Meghana and Ellyse Perry.

Scoring freely from the start has been challenging for batters at this venue, but they tend to accelerate once they settle in. The powerplay assumes significant importance as batsmen aim to capitalize on the early overs. As the ball ages and the field spreads out, batting becomes tougher, with the slow surface aiding spinners. Captains winning the toss might consider bowling first to assess the conditions on the day.
