Mumbai Indians (MUM-W) will face off against Gujarat Giants (GUJ-W) in the third match of the ongoing Women’s Premier League (WPL) at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday, February 25th. This encounter against Gujarat marks the defending champions’ second fixture in the tournament following their victory over Delhi Capitals in the 2024 WPL opener at the same venue.

In the inaugural edition, the fortunes of the two teams were contrasting. Despite possessing a seasoned lineup, the Giants finished at the bottom of the table, while Mumbai emerged as the eventual champions. Led by Harmanpreet Kaur, the Mumbai team boasts the experience of players like Hayley Mathews, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Amelia Kerr, and Shabnim Ismail.

On the other hand, Giants’ captain Beth Mooney missed the 2023 WPL due to injury, with Sneh Rana taking over leadership responsibilities. Despite Rana’s efforts, the team’s performance did not improve. However, Mooney is set to return as captain this season, with players like Laura Wolvaadrt, Veda Krishnamurthy, Phoebe Litchfield, Ashleigh Gardner, Harleen Deol, and Rana aiming for a better showing.

Pitch report

The M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is known for its batting-friendly pitches, with flat surfaces and short boundaries leading to high-scoring matches. The team winning the toss is likely to opt for fielding first.
