If you play four matches, you will lose all four. Instead of moving forward in the tournament, everything is going backwards. I don’t know whether they have forgotten that there is one thing to win or they are leaving it as something that is not related to us, but the reality is that RCB is not performing as expected in WPL. Against this backdrop, in today’s match against Delhi Capitals, RCB led by Smriti Mandhana will lose the toss and come to bat first.
Even though the team is full of star players and all-rounders, Bengaluru, which has not tasted victory till now, has to win all the matches to be played from now on in order to have any chance of finals in this tournament. And will RCB step in that direction even in today’s match..?
RCB, which is failing in bowling as well as batting, lost miserably in the match against Delhi Capitals on the fifth of this month. In that match, Delhi lost only 2 wickets and made 223 runs in the allotted 20 overs. RCB.. limited to 163 runs. And the fans of that team want to recover even in today’s match and take revenge against Delhi.
In batting, Smriti Mandhana has not performed below par in this league so far. Another opener Sophie Devine is doing well but she is not winning matches. Elise Perry, Richa Ghosh and Knight also need to excel. Among the bowlers, Renuka Singh and Megan Schutt are failing miserably, it is imperative for RCB that they excel.
Delhi in full swing..
If RCB’s story is like this, then Delhi is in full swing. This season, the team played four matches, winning three and losing one (against Mumbai). Delhi, which is second in the points table, defeated Gujarat in the last match. Delhi, who bowled first and limited Gujarat to 105 runs, then blew the target in seven overs. Marijane Kapp and Shafali Verma excelled as Delhi scored an easy victory and is on a roll. Delhi hopes to continue the same momentum.
