UP Warriorz have problems of their own
- Will RCB change strategy?
- Can UP find a way to fit in the bjg overseas stars?
Royal Challengers Bangalore have lost three on the trot and will want a win to bring back the confidence in the dressing room. Will they make changes in personnel? Will they change their strategy? They have odds of 2.03 to beat UP Warriorz.
UP Warriorz, meanwhile, have a win in the bank, but it came due to individual brilliance from Grace Harris, who was subsequently dropped for the next match. Their challenge will be to fit in some superstar overseas players in the same XI. UP have odds of 1.76 to win this one.
Can RCB change things around?
Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine are absolutely crucial to this batting line-up as is Ellyse Perry, but the three have been looking to go hammer and tongs from the start, which has backfired except in the last game. Should Mandhana probably stick to her natural game and leave Devine to do the big hitting?
Our pick: RCB have a strong team still and despite the losses can be backed to win here. Back RCB at 2.03 to win this game!
UP, meanwhile, will want to bring back Grace Harris to the middle-order even though Shabnin Ismail’s pace is also something they require.
Keep an eye on..
Smriti Mandhana is the crucial batter in the team and her being in confidence is important for RCB’s season. If she can get a cushion from the other end with Devine going big, Mandhana might stick to her strengths.
Alyssa Healy is at her attacking best against ordinary attacks and will likely get that with RCB. Watch out for a big one from her.
