Royal Challengers Bangalore Probable Playing XI

Smriti Mandhana, Sophie Devine, Disha Kasat, Ellyse Perry, Heather Knight, Richa Ghosh (wk), Kanika Ahuja, Shreyanka Patil, Megan Schutt, Renuka Singh, and Preeti Bose/Sahana Pawar.

GUJ-W vs RCB-W, Match 6: Top Five Picks

  1. Smriti Mandhana (RCB): Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) skipper Smriti Mandhana got starts in both the opening encounters as she amassed 35 and 23 runs. But, unfortunately, her side lost both games as she would like to get a big score under her belt, eventually winning the game for RCB against Gujarat Giants.
  2. Ellyse Perry (RCB): Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry scored 31 off 19 in RCB's opener against Delhi Capitals. She managed only 13 in the next game, but the fourth-highest run-scorer for the Aussies in T20Is is an experienced campaigner hoping to deliver a match-winning performance.
  3. Megan Schutt (RCB): Megan Schutt was the joint-highest wicket-taker with ten wickets for Australia in their recent victorious T20 WC campaign. She is also the leading wicket-taker for the Aussies in the T20I format with 124 scalps. However, Schutt went wicketless in the first two games in WPL as a solid spell looks on the cards.
  4. Ashleigh Gardner (GG): All-rounder Ashleigh Gardner took the joint-second most wickets with Schutt at the T20 WC. After getting out for a golden duck in the opener, she scored 25 off 19 against UP Warriorz in this WPL. She is a quality performer and could be a worthy pick for this fixture.
  5. Harleen Deol (GG): Right-handed batter Harleen Deol scored a fluent 46 off 32 in the last game against the Warriorz. Batting at a crucial no.3 spot, Deol is expected to deliver in this contest.
