MI Women had won the toss & opted to bowl first against RCB Women. RCB Women are out of the race of play-offs where they would be aiming to finish on a high after losing 5 matches out of 7. RCB Women batter Sophie Devine had played a blistering knock of 99 runs against Gujarat Giants(GG) on 18th March. Sophie Devine has been the biggest positive for RCB Women where she has amassed 266 runs with 2 half centuries.
MI Women got a reality check against DC Women in their last match on 20th March. A win for MI Women would give them some sort of chance of topping the points table where we all know that the table-toppers would directly advance to the final of WPL 2023.

Great Chance for Smriti Mandhana
Smriti Mandhana has had a scratchy WPL 2023 where she hasn’t dominated the terms which raised a lot of eyebrows. Smriti now needs to bat responsibly & make sure that she stays till the end of the innings as scoring won’t be easy against a strong MI Women’s bowling lineup.
MI Women skipper Harmanpreet Kaur wouldn’t have asked for a better start to the innings where Sophie Devine could have given RCB Women a rollicking start. Harmanpreet Kaur needs to use Saika Ishaque, the left-arm off-spinner smartly where the spinner has the knack of breaking partnerships.
