Meanwhile, in the other match, Australia could easily chase India’s 172 by losing 1 wicket. So, the team winning the toss will surely look to chase here with due coming into play in the latter part of the match. Moreover, you can expect a high-scoring match as well. The Pitch is quite interesting and the weather condition will matter. At this point, batting first can be an advantage on this pitch.

Delhi Capitals vs Mumbai Indians | Team News
DC are on a roll, with the Australian captain scoring back-to-back half-centuries at the top of the order. The capitals’ batting line-up is one of the best among the other teams filled with power hitters. They have bowlers like Jess Jonassen, Marizanne Kapp, and Shikha Pandey who have bowled really well in one spell or the other. Short boundaries with flat surfaces could mean that it could be a perfect time for Marizanne Kapp to show her experience mainly with the ball. In the opening contest, she was expensive after a cameo with the bat.
Mumbai Indians are filled with allrounders and they are on fire at this moment. Hayley Matthews’ explosive start at the top helped them in the last match. She also starred in an all-around effort. The Mumbai versus Capitals game could well be one of the contenders of the ‘final before the final’ though the WPL has a fair distance to go. Amelia Kerr contributed with bat and ball in the opening contest.
