Last season, the Gujarat Giants missed their captain throughout the tournament, and this year, they hope that Beth Mooney will be able to play the entire season and contribute to the team's success. Along with Beth, her fellow Australian teammate, Ashleigh Gardner, will hold the key to the team's glory this year. Gardner has been one of the best all-rounders in women's T20Is in the last few years, and her ability to perform with both bat and ball will be essential for Gujarat.

Sneh Rana and Harleen Deol will be the primary Indian players for Gujarat. Sneh, as a senior player, will be key in the middle overs with her off-spin and will look to add value with the ball as well. Meanwhile, Harleen will be a major player in the top order, particularly against the spin.

Phoebe Litchfield will be a an important player for Gujarat Giants this season.

Kashvee Gautam being ruled out due to injury, Sayali Satghare has stepped in as her replacement. Additionally, Lea Tahuhu has come in for Lauren Cheatle for Gujarat Giants.

Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians had a hero in their last match. S. Sajana hit a first-ball six, which helped the team to win. The team has some new faces that can add value to their lineup. 

Harmanpreet Kaur scored a fifty in the first match against Delhi Capitals.

In addition, Captain Harmanpreet Kaur looked in fine form after a long time, and her fifty in the first match will surely boost her confidence. Yastika Bhatia became the first left-hander to score a fifty in WPL history in her match against Delhi Capitals. With Hayley Matthews, she will be ready to give the defending champions a great start. 

The all-round ability of Amelia Kerr and Nat Sciver-Brunt will again come in handy for the team, along with Shabnim Ismail's pace and aggression.
