Delhi Capitals the finalists of WPL 2023 will be playing the UP Warriorz on February 26. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST. This is the first meeting between the two sides in WPL 2024.

Delhi Capitals won both their games against UP Warriorz last season. Against Mumbai Indians in the season opener, Delhi lost the game even after posting 171 with the bat.

Mumbai Indians skipper Harmanpreet Kaur anchored a run-chase they saw a last-ball finish. S Sajana turned out to be the hero of the match hitting the last-ball six to win the match.

Historically, Delhi Capitals are a side who have relied heavily on their openers to give them a good start in WPL. In the last game, both fell cheaply. Both of them must get scores under their belt in this game.

The side has good batting depth with the likes of Alice Capsey, Jemimah Rodrigues, Marizanne Kapp, and Annabel Sutherland in their ranks as well. The batters need to make the most of the opportunities they get in the tournament,

Bowling wise, they have good depth as well with the likes of Radha Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, and Shikha Pandey forming a food trio. Jess Jonassen and Indian spinner Poonam Yadav also add variety to the side. In this article, we predict Delhi Capitals women’s playing XI.
