Can Mumbai Indians keep up the momentum?
- RCB bowling group needs a rethink
- Mumbai bank on batting prowess
The two teams come off contrasting results in their first game of the WPL season. While Mumbai thrashed Gujarat Giants, RCB struggled against Delhi Capitals.
It could make this contest a really interesting one, especially if RCB can manage to turn the tide around with their reputed batting group. RCB have odds of 1.80 to win the game and are favourites to do so.
Mumbai have a solid batting group as witnessed against Gujarat, but their bowling is questionable against quality batting line-ups. They have odds of 1.98 to win this match.
Who will win the power battle?
While RCB have Sophie Devine, Smriti Mandhana, Ellyse Perry, Heather Knight and Richa Ghosh among others, Mumbai have Amelia Kerr, Harmanpreet Kaur, Nat Sciver-Brunt and Hayley Matthews. This is truly a battle of batting line-ups and could come down to whoever plays fearless cricket.
Our pick: Despite a poor start, RCB have one of the strongest teams in the competition. Back RCB Women at 1.80 to win the match!
Mumbai’s bowling line-up is short of stardom and could come under fire against an RCB line-up that’s stuffed with star players. This battle could decide the champions.
Keep an eye on…
Smriti Mandhana was at her fluent best in her short innings against Delhi and it’s likely a sign of things to come from the RCB skipper.
Amelia Kerr combined exceptional batting awareness and strokeplay with a brilliant spell with the ball and could be the x-factor in this Mumbai line-up.
