Royal Challengers Bangalore's WPL campaign has been a nightmare, with no victories in the five matches played so far. They find themselves at the bottom of the points table, with a lot of work to do if they hope to turn their fortunes around.
The Smriti Mandhana-led side is gearing up for their sixth match of the tournament against UP Warriorz on Wednesday, March 15 at Dr DY Patil Stadium. In the lead-up to the game, Aakash Chopra has made a bold prediction.
The former Indian cricketer turned commentator has expressed his scepticism about RCB's chances of winning their upcoming game in the WPL. However, he feels that they have the potential to upset other teams' chances in the future.
"It is an important game for both sides but I feel RCB will not get a win again. RCB's problem is that Smriti Mandhana has sent a friend request to form but it has not been accepted.
"She will have Sophie Ecclestone and Deepti Sharma in front of her but despite that, I feel the friend request will be accepted today.”
RCB has suffered their fifth consecutive loss after being thoroughly defeated by Delhi Capitals in their last match. With their chances of qualifying for the Eliminator round diminishing, RCB needs to rely on the other teams to secure a place in the top three.
"Smriti Mandhana's days are going bad and RCB are having an equally bad time. They have played five matches and have not won even one. For all practical purposes, their tournament is done. They are not going to progress but can spoil someone's party.”
