ROYAL CHALLENGERS BANGALORE
- Royal Challengers Bangalore are yet to win a single IPL and will no doubt be hoping for a very different story in the inaugural WPL, having assembled a stacked squad full of world class talent.
- Indian international Smriti Mandhana was the most expensive buy of the auction and will captain an RCB side which includes the likes of Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine and 19-year wicket-keeper Richa Ghosh, who starred for India in the most recent ICC Women’s U19 World Cup.
- Delhi Capitals invested in youth when it came to playing talent in the WPL auction, with batters Shafali Verma and Jemimah Rodrigues both being snapped up alongside 18-year-old England star Alice Capsey.
- However, those young players have been complemented by plenty of experienced winners, not least Australia captain Meg Lanning, who will lead the Capitals, whilst South African all-rounder Marizanne Kapp is a proven performer on the big stage.
Whilst Royal Challengers Bangalore perhaps boast the bigger names across their squad, Delhi Capitals have smartly recruited a cohesive team full of power hitters up top which should ensure plenty of runs with the bat. Throw Lanning into the mix, one of the best skippers in women’s cricket and Delhi look well set for a successful WPL. It would be no surprise to see a high-scoring contest when factoring in the batters on show for both teams and a close encounter should be on the cards. Therefore, this match may be won by smart captaincy in the field in terms of bowling changes and in-game tactics, so back Lanning’s Capitals to narrowly come out on top.
