In a showdown between two formidable teams, the Delhi Capitals Women are set to face off against the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Match 17 of the 2024 Women’s Premier League on Sunday evening. 

A victory for the Capitals would likely secure their spot in the next stage, while a win for RCB would add excitement to the top of the standings. Previously, when these teams met, Delhi convincingly defeated Bangalore by 25 runs.

Team Previews:

Delhi Capitals Women 

The Delhi Capitals have showcased exceptional form throughout the season, bouncing back strongly after their initial loss to Mumbai and arriving at this match with four consecutive wins. A win here would see them become the first team to secure a playoff berth.

In their recent match, despite skipper Meg Lanning’s fifty, the team suffered a narrow 1-run loss against UP Warriorz. Jemimah Rodrigues has been struggling for runs, while Shefali Varma has provided valuable support at the top. Alice Capsey has also made notable contributions, although she had a poor outing in the last game.

 Marizanne Kapp, who was omitted from the eleven in the previous match, may return for this game, possibly replacing England’s Alice Capsey, who could be rested or she might be swapped with Annabel Sutherland who has not done anything significant this season. 

Jess Jonassen leads the bowling charts with 10 wickets, supported by Radha Yadav, who has also claimed 10 wickets. Shikha Pandey and Titas Sadhu will spearhead the pace attack.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Women

RCB Women suffered a big setback in their last match, losing by 19 runs to bottom-ranked Gujarat Giants Women, marking their third loss in the last four games. Despite this, they remain third on the points table with a strong chance of qualifying. In their previous game, Georgia Wareham showed an impressive all-round performance.

The key to success for RCB in this clash will be their bowling unit, which needs to be more effective after a lackluster performance in the previous match. The bowlers must pose a greater threat in this fixture. Players like Ekta Bisht and Asha Sobhana will need to step up.

After maintaining the same XI in their loss to Gujarat Giants Women, RCB may consider making changes for this match. However, with no injuries, they might opt to stick with the same players, as they fielded their strongest lineup in the last game. A collective effort will be required from RCB to overcome Delhi in their home ground.

Arun Jaitley Stadium Pitch Report

The pitch in Delhi is renowned for not favoring high-scoring encounters, particularly as the season progresses, resulting in slower wickets. Therefore, the upcoming game is not expected to be a high-scoring affair. Spinners can anticipate ample turn from the surface, and a competitive score would likely range between 155 to 160 runs. Given these conditions, teams winning the toss will likely opt to bat first.
