RCB-W vs DEL-W Pitch Report
There have been a total of 11 T20I matches played at the venue out of which six have been won by teams batting second. The average first innings score batting first at the venue is 165. The boundaries at the Brabourne S tadium are a bit shorter as compared to other stadiums in the country, hence a high number of boundaries can be expected during the game.
The pacers can get some assistance from the wicket early on in the innings while the spinners are expected to have a tough day due to short boundaries. The captain winning the toss will most likely choose to bowl first keeping in mind the past record of the venue.

RCB-W vs DEL-W Probable Best Performers
Probable Best Batter
The star Indian opener was the most expensive player at the WPL auction as RCB roped her in for a whopping INR 3.4 crore. She was India’s leading run-scorer at the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 scoring 151 runs at an average of 37.75. Mandhana will be expected to live up to her reputation and set the tournament on fire in her first appearance.
Probable Best Bowler
The Australian seamer is one of the stalwarts of the game as with 124 wickets to her name she’s just three wickets away from becoming the leading wicket-taker in WT20Is. She was the joint second-highest wicket-taker of the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 having picked up 10 wickets at an average of 13.50. The right-arm fast-medium bowler will look to rattle the opposition and pick crucial wickets for her team.
