Delhi Capitals will face Gujarat Giants today for the playoffs in the Women’s Premier League. In this league, Mumbai has already reached the playoffs. Delhi is competing for the next berth. If they beat Gujarat today, Meg Lanning-led Delhi will secure a playoffs berth regardless of the results of the other matches. In this background, Delhi Capitals won the toss and will field first in the match being held at the Brabourne Stadium. Gujarat will come to bat.
There has already been a match between these two teams in the season. In that match held on 11th of this month, Gujarat batted first and were bowled out for 105 runs. Delhi hit the target in 7.1 overs. Shafali Verma scored 76 runs in just 28 balls.
In this season, Gujarat has played five matches so far and won only one match. As a result, it was placed at the bottom of the points table. If they lose this match as well, the chances of the playoffs will be complicated for that team.
Shafali Verma, Jemima Rodrigues, Meg Lanning, Marijane Kapp, Alice Capsey, Jess Janasen are in good form in the Delhi team. If all of them can give their best in today’s match, defeating Gujarat will not be difficult.
And Gujarat won this season only with RCB. Despite having seniors like Sophia Dunkley, Ashley Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, Verham, Sneh Rana and young players like Harleen Deol and Sabbineni Meghna, the team is not playing well. Let’s see how Gujarat performs in today’s crucial match.
Final Teams:Both teams made changes for this match. Poonam Yadav replaced Tara Norris in the Delhi team. Laura and Ashwini are playing in the final team instead of Annabel and Meghana for Gujarat.
Gujarat : Laura Vollwardt, Sophia Dunkley, Harleen Deol, Ashley Gardner, Dayalan Hemalatha, Ashwini Kumari, Sneh Rana (captain), Sushma Verma, Kim Garth, Tanuja Kanwar, Monica Patel
