Gujarat Giants and RCB Women go head to head in match 13 of WPL 2024 in New Delhi on March 6. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST and this is the first game for both sides in the Delhi leg of the tournament. 

RCB defeated the Giants by 8 wickets in their previous meeting in Bengaluru. The hosts chased down a paltry total of 108 inside 13 overs. Smriti Mandhana leads RCB while Beth Mooney leads the Giants. 

Mooney who joined as the skipper this season has failed to change the fortunes of the franchise. So far the Giants are yet to win a game and they have lost all four games from the Bengaluru leg.

They lost their previous game against Delhi Capitals where they failed to chase 164. After being asked to set targets in the first three games, Gujara preferred chasing in their last game and failed at that as well. 

The Mithali Raj-led Gujarat management has been struggling to find answers behind the failure of the players to perform. The whole squad looks like a tired unit with none of their batters or bowlers looking in form. They have failed to play together as a unit and put in the clinical performances that are required to win games.

RCB Women, on the other hand, has made a better start for the tournament. They have already won three games in the Bengaluru leg including their last against UP Warriorz. They have also lost against the two top sides Delhi and Mumbai and need to win against them if they are to stay alive in the tournament.
