MI-W vs RCB-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11: WPL 2023 Match 4 | MI-W vs RCB-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Brabourne Pitch Report

It’s go time for Royal Challengers Bangalore after a hammering at the hands of Delhi Capitals. The nature of the defeat, which has seen their net run rate stand at -0.300, means there is little room for error in a competitive league. The standard of the WPL has been outstanding so far, and RCB need to display some of that here.

It certainly won’t be easy, though. Mumbai Indians lit up the stage on the tournament’s opening night, winning by a massive 143 runs against Gujarat Giants. The sheer depth of the Mumbai side, led by the magnificent Harmanpreet Kaur, will be tough for any team to overcome. The key for Kaur’s side is a strong start, given that early wickets is RCB’s best chance of keeping Mumbai’s middle order as quiet as possible.
