DC Women had won the toss & opted to bowl first against MI Women. MI Women made one change as they replaced Dhara Gujjar with Pooja Vastarkar. DC Women’s bowlers were getting a lot of movement off the pitch. Marizanne Kapp was getting a lot of assistance from the wicket. Marizanne Kapp has had a terrific season with both bat & ball.
MI Women & DC Women are qualified for playoffs & would be aiming for the top position as in WPL 2023, the top team reaches the final directly. MI Women have been quite invincible where they have lost only 1 match in WPL 2023 out of 6. MI Women would be keen to keep the winning run continue.

Critical Phase for MI Women
MI Women batters need to play out the power-play overs carefully as this pitch is not a belter one where batters need to give themselves time before playing an aggressive brand of cricket. All eyes would be on skipper Harmanpreet Kaur who will have to bat deep. MI Women’s batting lineup hasn’t been tested in WPL 2023.
DC Women would sense that a couple of more wickets would put MI Women on the back foot. Skipper Meg Lanning perhaps should bowl out Marizanne Kapp. DC Women would be aiming to restrict MI Women below 130 runs as the pitch can deteriorate in the 2nd innings.
