GUJ-W vs MUM-W Dream11 Prediction: Key Picks for the 3rd match of WPL 2024

Mumbai Indians:

Harmanpreet Kaur

  • The MI captain was player of the match against Delhi (55 off 34 balls). She is a point-of-difference captaincy option for today’s match if you’re looking beyond all-rounders.
  • Kaur won player of the match in both meetings against Gujarat in 2023. She scored 65 (30) and 51 (30), bringing plenty of Dream11 fantasy cricket points in the process.
  • Harmanpreet has a liking to Ashleigh Gardner’s offspin. In 103 balls in T20s, Kaur has hit 173 runs.

Hayley Matthews

  • The all-rounder scored the fifth-most runs (275) and took the equal-most wickets (16) in WPL 2023.
  • Mathews took 3/23 in her last meeting against Gujarat.

Nat Sciver-Brunt

  • Sciver-Brunt started WPL 2024 with 2/33 and 19 against the Capitals, totalling 77 Dream11 points.
  • The all-rounder made scores of 23 and 36 against Gujarat in WPL 2023. She also took figures of 2/5 and 3/21.
  • Sciver-Brunt has excellent numbers against Beth Mooney in all T20s: 66 balls bowled, 52 runs conceded, four dismissals.

Gujarat Giants:

Ashleigh Gardner

  • Australian all-rounder Ash Gardner is always a factor when it comes to fantasy teams. She scored the most runs (204) and took the second-most wickets (10) for GG-W last season.
  • Gardner has an outstanding record against Hayley Mathews in franchise T20 cricket. She has dismissed her four times in 45 balls (37 runs).
  • Gardner has a good batting record against Nat Sciver-Brunt: 59 balls, 88 runs, three dismissals.

Beth Mooney

  • In franchise T20s since the start of 2022, Mooney has scored 1,192 runs at an average of 47.7 and strike rate of 135.00.
  • In this period, Mooney has hit a 50+ score once every 3.18 innings.
  • Mooney has a solid career record against Shabnim Ismail in all T20s: 85 balls, 112 runs, two dismissals.

Phoebe Litchfield

  • Run-machine Litchfield has scored 935 runs in all T20s since the start of 2023.
  • Litchfield has scored 26 runs off just 13 balls against Hayley Matthews (no dismissal).

Other solid Dream11 picks:

  • Amelia Kerr has taken 17 wickets in 11 WPL matches so far. She has dismissed Phoebe Litchfield four times in 60 balls in T20s (66 runs).
  • Shabnim Ismail has dismissed Phoebe Litchfield twice in 25 balls (33 runs).
  • Saika Ishaque took 4/11 in her first meeting against Gujarat last season.
  • Yastika Bhatia offers potential for Dream11 points as an opening wicket-keeping batter. She is coming off a half-century in the first match.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru Pitch Report and Weather

It was a nice batting surface for the first game of WPL 2024. Mumbai Indians chased down Delhi Capitals’ 171 in stunning fashion. Yesterday, RCB defended 157 in another close encounter, with legspinner Sobhana Asha taking a remarkable 5/22.

So, spinners could have a say again. Mostly clear conditions are forecast with a top of 32 degrees.
