RCB-W vs MI-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: WPL 2023 Match 19 | MI-W vs RCB-W Dream11 Prediction Today | DY Patil Pitch Report

The top three teams may have been confirmed, but there is still plenty to play for on the final day of the WPL 2023 league stage. Mumbai Indians, who were so comfortable after winning their first five matches, all of a sudden find themselves in second spot after a thumping defeat to Delhi Capitals yesterday.

The big challenges have now appeared at the doorstep of the playoffs for MI. Their batting has not got going in their past two matches, and their strong attack was made to look amateur at times by Lanning, Shafali and Capsey. They need to get back on track not only to put pressure on the Capitals later today, but to also find some important momentum before this weekend’s big matches.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will be seeking a strong finish to their campaign. Their poor start to the season, as well as Grace Harris’ heroics for UP Warriorz yesterday, has unfortunately meant they are out of the running. But, an RCB team with nothing to lose is a dangerous one, especially with Sophie Devine in such incredible form.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Mumbai Indians:

  • Hayley Matthews destroyed RCB earlier this season. She took 3/28 and scored 77* (38). MI will be hoping for something similar from the star all-rounder today.
  • Nat Sciver-Brunt missed out yesterday against Capitals. She too had a good game against RCB earlier in WPL 2023, with 55* (29) and 1/34.
  • Cometh the hour, cometh Harmanpreet Kaur. The MI captain is the leading run-scorer with 227 at an average of 57.00 and strike rate of 153.02.
  • Amelia Kerr bowled just the one over in a bad loss for MI yesterday. However, with pitches taking good turn, Kerr’s slow and effective legspinners can prove vital.
  • Kerr is one of seven bowlers to take at least ten wickets in WPL 2023.
  • Saika Ishaque, who is the second-highest wicket-taker this season (12), dismissed Sophie Devine in their previous meeting. If she can dismiss her early again, it will hold MI in good stead.

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Sophie Devine was out of this world on Saturday. The New Zealand legend smashed 99 at a strike rate of 275, taking her runs tally to 236 runs in her past five matches.
  • Ellyse Perry has been RCB’s most consistent in WPL 2023. In her 224-run tally this season, she has made a double-figure score in all seven matches, including four over 30.
  • Heather Knight is a dangerous player that MI needs to contain. The England captain is striking at 148.19 in WPL 2023.
  • Shreyanka Patil is RCB’s leading wicket-taker this season with five scalps at a strike rate of 19. The economy rate of ten is cause for improvement.

Other Stats and Facts

  • MI (159/1) beat RCB (155) with 34 balls to spare earlier in WPL 2023. But, the pressure is different now.
  • Smriti Mandhana’s average of 17.85 has hurt RCB this season. Can she build on her 37 from the last game?
  • Sophie Devine scored 74 off 22 against spinners in her magnificent 99 last game.
  • MI have taken the most wickets in the powerplay (16). RCB have taken the least (8).
  • Pooja Vastrakar is a potential X-Factor player for MI. She top-scored for them in the last game with 26 off 19 balls.

DY Patil Sports Academy Pitch Report and Weather

Chasing teams are reigning supreme in recent matches at DY Patil. The average first innings score in the last six games is 121.67, with the team batting second winning each time. So, expect the captain who wins the toss to bowl first.

A mostly clear day is forecast with a top of about 29 degrees.
