GUJ-W vs DEL-W, Match 9: Top Five Picks
- Meg Lanning (DEL): Delhi Capitals skipper Meg Lanning is the leading run-scorer of WPL 2023 so far. The right-handed batter is averaging 61.66 with two half-centuries and a score of 43 in 3 innings. She is the in-form batter and a no-brainer pick for this fixture.
- Shafali Verma (DEL): After a solid knock of 84 in Delhi's opening game against RCB, India's Shafali Verma has suffered two low scores of 17 and 2. The right-handed batter would be raring to go in this contest.
- Jemimah Rodrigues (DEL): Delhi Capital's middle-order batter Jemimah Rodrigues has scored 22*, 34* and 25 in the opening three fixtures. The young right-handed batter would be looking to get that first half-century of WPL in this tie.
- Harleen Deol (GUJ): Harleen Deol is the leading run-getter for Gujarat Giants so far in this competition. After bagging a duck against Mumbai Indians in the opening game, Deol has struck 46 and 67 as she looks the woman in form for GG.
- Sophia Dunkley (GUJ): Sophia Dunkley played a blistering knock of 65 off just 28 in the last match against RCB. Opening the innings, Dunkley would hope to give another solid start to her team against the Capitals.
