MI-W vs DEL-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Match 18 | MI-W vs DC-W Dream11 Prediction Today | DY Patil Pitch Report

Are we looking at a preview of the WPL 2023 Final? Possibly. However, there is more at stake than just a dress rehearsal. Top spot in the table is still up for grabs, with that team to avoid Friday’s Eliminator and move straight to Sunday’s Final.

Of course, there are still important games tomorrow for Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. But, DC can move level on points with MI, taking the race to the final day when Meg Lanning’s team comes up against UP Warriorz while Harmanpreet Kaur’s take on RCB.

But, the key is focusing on the task at hand. MI lost their first match of the tournament last time out, unable to get away against UP Warriorz’s spinners. DC were unable to chase 148 against Gujarat, which has both teams keen to build momentum ahead of the playoffs.
