DEL-W vs UP-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Match 5 | DC-W vs UP-W Dream11 Prediction Today | DY Patil Pitch Report

Delhi Capitals enjoyed the perfect start to WPL 2023. The top four, led by Shafali Verma and Meg Lanning, produced the goods, smashing the RCB attack to all parts on Sunday. Then, American Tara Norris, who has had quite the cricketing journey, made headlines with a wonderful five-wicket haul.

Now, Lanning’s Capitals will take on fellow Australian Alyssa Healy’s UP Warriorz, who also got off to a winning start but in contrasting fashion.

Grace Harris showed why she is one of the great finishers in women’s cricket against Gujarat. The Warriorz needed 53 off 18 balls, and Harris, along with Sophie Ecclestone, pulled it off in incredible fashion. However, more will be expected of the top and middle order, with only Kiran Navgire making a 15+ score in the top five.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Delhi Capitals:

  • Meg Lanning started WPL 2023 with a 43-ball 72. She also recently hit a vital 49* in the World Cup semi-final against India, so she comes into this game in great form.
  • Shafali Verma also comes into this clash in form. The star youngster belted 84 off 45 balls against RCB.
  • Verma has struck scores of 34 and 21 at a strike rate of 166.67 in two T20 matches on this ground.
  • Marizanne Kapp struggled with the bat in the group stage of the World Cup, but is now coming into her groove. The South African all-rounder has scored 39* (17), 11 (11) and 27* (13) in her past three matches.
  • Jemimah Rodrigues struck 43 (24) in the WC semi-final against Australia, followed by 22* (15) in DC’s WPL opener. She will be key in the middle overs especially.
  • Tara Norris made headlines with her five-wicket haul on Sunday. With lowish bounce in the surfaces, Norris’ accuracy will be vital once again.

UP Warriorz:

  • Alyssa Healy has made scores of 37, 25 and 7 on this ground at a strike rate of 150. If she gets going, watch out.
  • Kiran Navgire was the only Warriorz top five player to hit a 20+ score in the last match. She made 53 off 45 balls.
  • Tahlia McGrath will be aiming to bounce back after a golden duck. She averages 61.50 with a strike rate of 142.69 in international T20s, and can replicate that kind of form here.
  • Grace Harris blew viewers away with her 26-ball 59* on Sunday. In five T20 innings so far this year, Harris has slammed 94 runs at an average of 31.33 and strike rate of 204.35.
  • Since the start of 2022, Sophie Ecclestone has taken 68 wickets in 48 innings at an economy of just 5.84.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Delhi’s 223/2 on Sunday is the second-highest score in women’s T20 cricket.
  • Deepti Sharma has taken three wickets in as many T20s on this ground (econ. 7.67, SR 20.33).
  • The winner of this match will join Mumbai Indians in the top two.

DY Patil Sports Academy Pitch Report and Weather

Mumbai Indians smashed 207 on this ground batting first, followed by UP Warriorz’ superb chase – both against Gujarat. Expect another good surface for batting, but with some possible assistance for spinners as the game progresses.

Another warm and clear evening is forecast for Mumbai.
