Great Chance for MI Women

MI Women would sense that they have the game in their bag as it won’t be easy for the likes of Shikha Pandey or Radha Yadav to score runs on the sluggish track against a dangerous MI Women bowling attack. It won’t be a bad idea to introduce Nat Sciver-Brunt into the attack where she can wrap up the innings.

DC Women fans would be hoping that the batters play out the entire 20 overs as a total over 120 would give them an outside chance to stamp their authority in the final. It has been a disappointing performance from a star-studded DC Women batters where the batters lacked mental application.
