Gujarat Giants take on the RCB Women in match 13 of WPL 2024 on March 6. They are winless in the tournament so far having lost all their matches in the Bengaluru leg. They face a must-win situation in all their remaining games in Delhi.

Gujarat Giants lost to RCB Women in the previous fixture after they were rolled over for just 107. Bangalore chased down the target inside 13 overs to hand them an embarrassing defeat.

The franchise finished last in WPL 2023 and they have lost all their games so far, one against each team to be specific. The Giant’s management has been guilty of not being able to find their perfect and strongest playing XI.

The Mithali Raj-led management had too much chopping and changing within their playing XI both in the batting lineup and the bowling attack. Multiple opening combinations have been tried and none of them have worked out so far. Skipper Beth Mooney has the tough job of getting the side together and fighting for a win.

Gujarat Giants Women Playing 11 vs RCB Women- WPL 2024, Match 13

Beth Mooney (C/WK)

Mooney will continue to open the batting. She has scored just 60 runs in four matches at an average of 15. She has to lead with the bat in the remaining games and as captain.

Laura Wolvaardt

Laura Wolvaardt should ideally open the batting with Beth Mooney. She is one of the best batters in international cricket at the moment. She is also the skipper of the South Africa national team and can impart her leadership sense to Mooney.

Phoebe Litchfield

Litchfield should bat at three. The 20-year-old has all the making of becoming Australia’s next best and should utilize her opportunities better. She has scored 52 runs in four matches so far at an average of 15.50.

Veda Krishnamurthy

Veda should bat at four. The Indian batter has plenty of experience of playing in these conditions and should bring her experience to the fore. She did not play in the previous game against RCB Women.

Harleen Deol

Harlenn is another quality batter from India. She has not made the most of her chances either in this tournament so far. She can bat at six. She has scored just 48 runs in three matches so far and 250 runs overall in the tournament.

Ashleigh Gardner

Gadrner can bat at number six. She has scored 105 runs this season so far and picked up three wickets. Last season she scored 260 runs with the bat and picked up 13 wickets.

Dayalan Hemalatha

Hemlatha can bat at seven. He is an Indian batter and hence better known of the conditions. She scored over 150 runs last season and so far 36 in four games.

Kathryn Bryce

The Scotland skipper can slot in at eight. He is an associate player and hence the fifth overseas within the XI. She has scored 36 runs with the bat so far and picked up two wickets this season.

Sneh Rana

Sneh Rana can bat at nine. She led the franchise last season and was replaced as the skipper by Beth Mooney. Rana is amongst the more experienced players within the team yet to deliver with the ball this season.

Tanuja Kanwar

Kanwar is the specialist left-arm spinner. She has picked up six wickets already this season and contributed 45 runs with the bat. With her ability to spin the ball, she can be a handful in the conditions in Delhi.

Meghna Singh

Meghna Singh concludes the likely Gujarat Giants playing XI. She has taken five wickets from four games for the franchise and is amongst the senior bowlers in this year’s WPL.
