Delhi Capitals vs UP Warriorz | Match Details

Match: 5

Date: 07/03/2023

Time: 7.30 pm IST

Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai

Where to Watch: Sports 18, Jio Cinema

Venue Details

Only two Women's T20I matches have been played at the DY Patil Stadium before WPL 2023. Generally, it has been a high-scoring ground. Australia had put up 187 and India were able to tie that match last year. Meanwhile, in the other match, Australia were able to chase India's 172 easily just by losing 1 wicket. Mumbai Indians also put up a big total of 207 runs while batting first.

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.

The two matches that were played in the Women's Premier League were mixed scoring. In the first match, Mumbai put up a huge total & Gujarat Giants fell apart on only 64 while chasing. In the other match, Gujarat Giants put up an average total. UP Warriorz struggled but won the match somehow. So, it will depend on the pitch reading, which will help the teams to adapt consistently while playing the game.

Grace Harris just simply did that in the run chase against Gujarat as she found it easy to play big shots, which Gujarat failed in their two games of the campaign on this venue. On the other side, if we are talking about the Meg Lanning vs Alyssa Healey kind of a battle then it will be a masterpiece of a game as they both know how to read the games as well as the pitches because that's how a Champion CricketTeam is built in the different pitches, different weather conditions and other things.

WPL 2023:

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals also have an amazing batting lineup with the likes of Indian opener Shafali Verma at the top followed by skipper Meg Lanning, Marizanne Kapp, Alice Capsey, and Jemimah Rodrigues. Meg Lanning & Shafali Verma's partnership was exquisite against RCB. They stood for a partnership of more than 150+ while batting first. Kapp gave a perfect finish with stormy innings.

Along with all-rounders Shikha Pandey and Marizanne Kapp, Delhi Capitals have acquired Indian bowlers Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav, and Titas Sadhu along with overseas stars Jess Jonassen and Taniya Bhatia in the auction. Tara Norris was the showstopper against RCB who broke the top order completely by claiming a five-or.

UP Warriorz

Warriorz, led by Alyssa Healy, will look to carry on their strong start. They have plenty of firepower in their line-up, such as the big-hitting Grace Harris and Kiran Navgire who were the match-winners in the last match against Gujarat Giants. Their bowling attack features the likes of Shabnim Ismail, Deepti Sharma & Sophie Ecclestone. Deepti & Ecclestone both took 2 wickets and were cruel when to give runs to the opposition in their first encounter of WPL 2023.
