DEL-W vs MI-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Final | DC-W vs MI-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Brabourne Pitch Report

The final of the inaugural Women’s Premier League – a groundbreaking tournament for women’s cricket – is upon us. And no one can deny that the two best teams – Mumbai Indians (MI) and Delhi Capitals (DC) – will contest the title; the chance to win the inaugural tournament that can set either team up for further success in future years.

All along, it seemed as though MI were heading straight to the final. Instead, DC qualified directly, but MI’s superb victory in their do-or-die Eliminator against UP Warriorz can hold them in good stead. Indeed, Nat Sciver’s wonderful innings and Issy Wong’s memorable hat-trick are a taste of what members of this excellent MI team are capable of producing.

For Delhi, they will be out to emulate the kind of efficient performance that has served them well since they were thumped by MI. They returned the favour soon after, and then beat UP Warriorz in their final league game to finish top thanks to Alice Capsey’s wonderful all-round display.

If either team can make inroads into the other’s top order, they could very well be on their way to the title. Both teams have often counted on their top three or four to make the bulk of the runs, so pressure on the middle order in a big game can prove crucial.
