DEL-W vs UP-W, Match 5: Top Five Picks

  1. Meg Lanning (DEL): Delhi Capitals skipper Meg Lanning struck 72 off just 43 with the help of 14 fours in DC's opener against RCB. The Aussie international is to watch out for again in this fixture.
  2. Tara Norris (DEL): The bowler from USA was in lethal form in the first match. Tara Norris picked up a five-fer and destroyed the opposition batting line-up single handedly. 
  3. Shafali Verma (DEL): The Indian opener was in great touch in the first match. Shafali Verma played a blinder of 84 runs and that makes her a must pick for the match. The team management will hope that her form continues.
  4. Kiran Navigre (UP): The Indian batter looked in good touch in the first match. Kiran Navgire played a stable knock when most of the more accomplished batters in the team failed to deliver.
  5. Grace Harris (UP): Grace Harris played a blinder in the first match and achieved the impossible for her team. The kind of form the Australian is in Harris is surely a player you cannot miss out in the fantasy contests for the match.
