UP Warriorz might rejig bowling attack
- UP Warriorz could play Shabnim Ismail
- Delhi Capitals have a strong top-order
Meg Lanning’s team completely outplayed Royal Challengers Bangalore with an emphatic opening stand and more runs from the middle-order in their opening game. They have odds of 1.79 to repeat their heroics against UP Warriorz.
UP Warriorz, meanwhile, pulled off a win out of nowhere in their game against Gujarat Giants with Grace Harris’ stunning knock. Can they beat a strong Delhi side? GG have odds of 2.00 to win the game.
Delhi’s batting might vs Gujarat’s bowling
Delhi Capitals have one of the strongest batting units in the league and flaunted it with aplomb against RCB. With Meg Lanning, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Alice Capsey and Marizanne Kapp in their ranks, Delhi will be a tough nut to crack for the UP Warriorz attack.
Our pick: Delhi have a strong all-round unit and are favourites to win. Back Delhi at 1.79 to win this one!
UP Warriorz will bank on Sophie Ecclestone and the Indian group to make early dents in the DC line-up. But they might ponder bringing in the in-form South Africa quick, Shabnim Ismail for Tahlia McGrath to give the bowling attack a boost against a strong Delhi side.
Keep an eye on…
Jemimah Rodrigues is in terrific form and is the ideal No.4 in the Delhi line-up . Her exceptional shot-making ability was on display the other night and we could see more of it in this game.
Sophie Ecclestone is easily the world’s best spinner in this format and showed her class in UP’s win over Gujarat. She can trouble a world-class Delhi side.
