We have reached the business end of the Women's Premier League (WPL) and each game from here on becomes an acid test for all the franchise. It is safe to say that Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals have made their way through to the next round of the tournament.

But the big question is, who will join them? Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Giants, and UP Warriorz are in the hunt for that third spot, and the next game between the Warriorz and the Giants becomes a crucial fixture.

Team Preview

Gujarat Giants

Everything is going wrong for them right from the first game. The team led by Sneh Rana have shown a bit of promise, but haven't been consistent at all. Due to their inferior net run-rate, the side languishes at the bottom of the table, with two wins under their belt.

In the last match against RCB, Gujarat posted a healthy 188, but Sophie Devine made a mockery of the total as RCB won the game inside 16 overs. The bowlers were taken to the cleaners and they'll be looking to rectify things against a spirited UP Warriorz team.

UP Warriorz

Talking about the Warriorz, it has been a topsy-turvy tournament for them, but the Alyssa Healy led side are in a strong position to clinch that coveted third spot in the points table. They became the first team to defeat Mumbai Indians in the competition, and that by no means is an easy feat to achieve.

With three wins and three losses, they are at the third position and wouldn't want to lose this crucial encounter.
