GUJ-W vs RCB-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Match 6 | GG-W vs RCB-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Brabourne Pitch Report

It’s nearing must-win territory for Gujarat Giants and Royal Challengers Bangalore, who both have net run rates worse than -0.300. It has certainly been a difficult start for each side, with hopes of a strong tournament hit hard early.

Beth Mooney’s injury as well as the late collapse against UP Warriorz has added a real sour taste for Gujarat. Bangalore’s bowling has looked toothless so far, taking just three wickets in two matches at an economy rate of 11.17. With a lot on the line here, it is a test of temperament, as well as skill, for these two teams.

Match Details

  • Location: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
  • Time: 7:30pm (IST).

WPL 2023 Match 6: GUJ-W vs RCB-W Possible Playing XIs

Beth Mooney is unlikely to play. In fact, she may not even feature in the rest of WPL 2023. “I feel we may have to replace (Beth) Mooney. The scans that came out today, did not look that great,” said Rachael Haynes.

Gujarat Giants: 1. Sabbhineni Meghana, 2. Sophia Dunkley, 3. Harleen Deol, 4. Annabel Sutherland, 5. Ashleigh Gardner, 6. Sushma Verma (wk), 7. Dayalan Hemalatha, 8. Sneh Rana (c), 9. Tanuja Kanwar, 10. Kim Garth, 11. Mansi Joshi

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1. Smriti Mandhana (c), 2. Sophie Devine, 3. Disha Kasat, 4. Ellyse Perry, 5. Heather Knight, 6. Risha Ghosh (wk), 7. Kanika Ahuja, 8. Shreyanka Patil, 9. Megan Schutt, 10. Renuka Singh, 11. Preeti Bose

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Gujarat Giants:

  • Sophia Dunkley is crucial in the absence of Mooney. After a strong 2021-22 period (992 runs, avg. 28.34), Dunkley has scored just 91 runs in six T20s this year (avg. 15.17). Now is the time to fire.
  • Ashleigh Gardner, player of the tournament in the recent T20 World Cup, showed glimpses against UP Warriorz (25 off 19 balls & 0/34). The class all-rounder can deliver at any stage.
  • It was a tough finish at the death for Annabel Sutherland against UP Warriorz (3.5-0-41-1). But, with her role up the order and key overs with the ball, she is always a factor in how the result might play out.
  • Kim Garth is coming off a magnificent five-wicket haul in the last match. Her ability to swing the ball away from the right-handers and into the left-handers will be interesting to watch.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Smriti Mandhana has the third-most runs of any player (male or female) at Brabourne. She has scored 264 runs in eight matches at an average of 37.71 and strike rate of 152.60.
  • Like Mandhana, Sophie Devine has looked in decent touch without making the big score yet. The Kiwi has struck 16 and 14 at a strike rate of 136.36, with five fours in 16 deliveries.
  • Ellyse Perry enjoys batting at Brabourne. The great all-rounder has scored 246 runs in seven innings at an average of 49.20 and strike rate of 154.72.
  • Heather Knight has shown glimpses of her best in WPL 2023, with 34 and two-for in the first match.
  • Annabel Sutherland has been dismissed twice by left-arm orthodox in WPL 2023. So, RCB may look to use Preeti Bose against her.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Harleen Deol kept things ticking along for Gujarat with an important 32-ball 46 against UP Warriorz.
  • Smriti Mandhana has looked good at times in WPL 2023, without going on to make the big score: 35 and 23.
  • Megan Schutt is wicketless so far in this tournament, but has played well with the bat.

Brabourne Stadium Mumbai Pitch Report and Weather

Brabourne is a belter of a batting pitch. RCB were way below par against Mumbai, where they scored just 155 and were beaten with a massive 34 balls and nine wickets to spare. In the first game, Delhi hammered 223 against RCB.

The question for Mandhana’s team is whether they can stem the flow of runs. The question also applies to Gujarat, who have conceded big totals themselves.

Another warm and clear evening is forecast in Mumbai.
