MI-W vs UP-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Eliminator | MI-W vs UP-W Dream11 Prediction Today | DY Patil Pitch Report

Mumbai Indians may be wondering how they ended up here. On top of the league right from the first match, MI looked destined for a passage straight through to the final. However, a stutter, including a very heavy defeat to eventual first-placed Capitals, means they have to encounter an Eliminator.

UP Warriorz were the first team to beat MI in WPL 2023, so they will come into this game with confidence. Their middle order has been a beacon of strength throughout the campaign, with Tahlia McGrath and Grace Harris crucial to the team’s run of form. As a result, they will believe they are every chance.

In terms of the last match, MI picked up a morale-boosting win over RCB, while UPW fell short against DC. But, all that goes out the window in a test of skill and execution under pressure with all on the line.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Mumbai Indians:

  • Harmanpreet Kaur has scored more than half of MI’s middle order runs in WPL 2023 (nos. 4-7). She scored 53* (33) and 25 (22) against UP Warriorz in the league stage.
  • Hayley Matthews is the one of two players to score 200+ runs and take 10+ wickets in WPL 2023.
  • Nat Sciver-Brunt could have easily taken more wickets against UP Warriorz last week had it not been for dropped catches. With the bat this season, the all-rounder has struck 200 runs at an average of 40.00 and strike rate of 138.88.
  • Amelia Kerr will be key on pitches aiding spin. She took 2/22 recently against UP Warriorz, followed by 3/22 two games later against RCB.
  • After taking 12 wickets in her first four matches at an economy of 5.85, Saika Ishaque has since taken one wicket in four matches at an economy of 7.78. Can she bounce back?

UP Warriorz:

  • When it comes to big games, Alyssa Healy often steps up. She hit scores of 58 (46) and 8 (10) against MI in the league season, but now the stakes are even higher.
  • Tahlia McGrath (295 runs) and Grace Harris (216 runs) have been solid as a rock for UPW in the middle order.
  • Deepti Sharma was player of the match against MI last week. The all-rounder took 2/35 and hit an important 13* in a right runchase.
  • Sophie Ecclestone is one of UP’s big guns as she is also contributing with the bat. She has taken the most wickets this season (14), with the best economy rate of any bowler with at least ten wickets (6.22). This includes a superb 3/15 in her last meeting with MI.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 2, MI-W 1, UP-W 1.
  • Warriorz have scored 1,161 runs in WPL 2023. The middle order (nos. 4-7) have contributed 663 of them.
