High-flying Mumbai Indians will look to make it five out of five when they clash with Gujarat Giants in the 12th match of the WPL. On the other hand, the Giants will hope to bring their campaign on track, having mustered a solo win out of the four matches.

Team Preview: Mumbai

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side has ticked all the boxes in each department. Mumbai has not put a foot wrong to sit comfortably atop the points table. 

Saika Ishaque has been a revelation, picking wickets at will, and is currently the proud holder of the Purple Cap. Other bowlers have also chipped in to put the opposition in check.

On the batting front, Yastika Bhatia has shown signs of returning to form, further strengthening a formidable top order. With the skipper leading from the front and supported by Hayley Matthews and Nat Sciver-Brunt, the management has not much to ponder upon.

Team Preview: Gujarat

After being on the receiving end of a Shafali Verma hammering in their last game, Gujarat must regroup fast. However, it will not be easy to halt the Mumbai juggernaut with a non-penetrative bowling force.

 Furthermore, Harleen Deol has been the only bright spot in a batting line-up featuring Laura Wolvaardt and Ashleigh Gardner. Sabbhineni Meghana has not made full use of the opportunities and another failure can lead to her ouster from the XI.

Sophia Dunkley, who registered the fastest fifty in WPL against Bangalore, made way for Wolvaardt against Delhi. Such baffling decisions from Gujarat’s think-tank have put the team’s fortunes hanging by a thread. Dunkley should make a comeback, with Wolvaardt likely to retain her spot too.

Match Details

Date and Time: March 14, 07:30 PM IST
Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
Live Streaming: Sports18 and Jio Cinema

Pitch Report: The pitch at Brabourne has allowed free-flowing stroke-making. Batters get full value for their shots, with runs galore at this venue. However, it is not  one-way traffic. Pacers can extract movement in the initial overs and rattle the opposition.  Similarly, spinners can stem the run flow and pick wickets with variations.
