MUM-W vs DEL-W Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2024 Match 1 | MI-W vs DEL-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Bengaluru Pitch Report

The second edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) is here. The first edition was a roaring success, with big crowds and wonderful performances underpinning the competition.

Fast forward to 2024 and Mumbai Indians will be out to defend their title. On the back of Hayley Mathews’ unbelievable season, MI peaked at the right time after a bit of a late season wobble. The team they beat – Delhi Capitals – are aiming to go one better this time around, and will want the perfect start here at Bengaluru.

Both teams look settled, as you would expect as they were the WPL 2023 finalists. The Capitals now have Annabel Sutherland in their ranks, with the in-form all-rounder fetching a big sum at the auction.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru Pitch Report and Weather

The M Chinnaswamy is usually a batting paradise. A flat pitch and short boundaries is typically what the bowlers are faced with.

Earlier this year, India and Afghanistan played out a thrilling Super Over after both teams smashed 212 in a men’s T20I. In last season’s men’s IPL, the average first innings score was 195.57 in seven matches. The team batting first won four of them.

A clear and warm evening is forecast, so dew is possible. Chasing may be favoured.
