RCB-W vs UPW-W Dream11 Prediction Possible 11: WPL 2024 Match 2 | BAN-W vs UPW-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Bengaluru Pitch Report

Season two of the Women’s Premier League got off to an absolutely thrilling start. Sajeevan Sajana’s last-ball six led Mumbai Indians to a thrilling win over Delhi Capitals, which has set this tournament up nicely.

So, what does match two have in store? Royal Challengers Bangalore are seeking a much better campaign after finishing second-last with just two wins in 2023. They lost their first five matches, and now have the opportunity to rectify that in front of their passionate fans at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

They face UP Warriorz who qualified for the playoffs in 2023. With four and four losses, the Warriors had their moments, but more consistency is the key in 2024. Backed by Alyssa Healy at the top, strong finishing, and an excellent spin attack, the Warriors have what it takes to go far in WPL 2024.

WPL 2024 Match 2: RCB-W vs UP-W Possible Playing XIs

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women: 1. Sophie Devine, 2. Smriti Mandhana (c), 3. Ellyse Perry, 4. Richa Ghosh (wk), 5. Disha Kasat, 6. Shreyanka Patil, 7. Kate Cross, 8. Georgia Wareham, 9. Simran Bahadur, 10. Ekta Bisht, 11. Renuka Singh

UP Warriorz have decisions to make with a number of quality overseas players. Chamari Athapaththu and Danni Wyatt can break into the team, but for whom? Tahlia McGrath was UP’s top scorer last season and Grace Harris is a superb finisher. Alyssa Healy and Sophie Ecclestone occupy the other two slots.

UP Warriorz Women: 1. Alyssa Healy (c & wk), 2. Devika Vaidya, 3. Kiran Navgire, 4. Tahlia McGrath/Chamari Athapaththu, 5. Grace Harris/Danni Wyatt, 6. Deepti Sharma, 7. Vrinda Dinesh, 8. Shweta Sehrawat, 9. Sophie Ecclestone, 10. Anjali Sarvani, 11. Rajeshwari Gayakwad 

RCB-W vs UP-W Fantasy Cricket Tips: Key Picks & Players to Watch

Royal Challengers Bangalore:

  • Sophie Devine will be key, especially with the bat. She had a good WBBL campaign last year, hitting 489 runs at an average of 37.61 and strike rate of 140.92.
  • Ellyse Perry scored the second-most runs for RCB last season with 253 at an average of 42.16 and strike rate of 123.41.
  • Perry has solid numbers against Sophie Ecclestone in T20s: 64 balls, 80 runs, one dismissal.
  • Smriti Mandhana had a difficult season in 2023, scoring just 149 runs in eight matches. How she fares against spin will be key, although she does have strong numbers against Ecclestone in T20s: 73 balls, 125 runs, two dismissals.
  • Kate Cross can prove to be a strong addition to RCB with her experience. She took ten wickets in last year’s Hundred at a strike rate of 18.5.
  • Renuka Singh’s battle with Alyssa Healy is one to watch out for. Singh has dismissed Healy five times in 75 deliveries in T20s (102 runs).

UP Warriorz:

  • Expect Deepti Sharma to bowl early. The offspinner has dismissed Smriti Mandhana twice in eight balls, conceding just one run. Also, Sharma took five wickets in two games against RCB last season.
  • Alyssa Healy smashed 96* (47) in her first meeting against RCB last season. If she passes the Renuka Singh threat, Healy can target other RCB bowlers, including Ekta Bisht, whom she’s scored 31 runs off 18 balls against (no dismissal).
  • Grace Harris is an excitement machine and should enjoy conditions at the M Chinnaswamy. In last season’s WPL, Harris slammed 230 runs at an average of 57.50 and strike rate of 165.46, including 46 off 32 against RCB.
  • Tahlia McGrath scored the most runs for UP-W in WPL 2023. The all-rounder hit 302 runs at an average of 50.33 and strike rate of 158.11.
  • Sophie Ecclestone is always a factor. The left-arm spinner took the equal-most wickets in WPL 2023 (16), with four coming against RCB.
  • Ecclestone has dominated Sophie Devine in T20s. In 46 balls, Ecclestone has dismissed Devine five times for just 40 runs.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 2, RCB-W 1, UP-W 1.

M Chinnaswamy Stadium Bengaluru Pitch Report and Weather

It was a nice batting surface for the first game of WPL 2024. Mumbai Indians chased down Delhi Capitals’ 171 in stunning fashion.

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.

Another clear and warm evening is forecast, so batting second may be preferred once again.
