WPL 2023: Match 13 UP-W vs RCB-W Preview, Playing XI, Live Streaming Details & Updates
UP and RCB will lock horns on March 15 at the DY Patil Sports Academy.
Match 13 of the Women’s Premier League will be played between UP Warriorz and Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 15 at the DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. Both teams have had a contrasting tournament so far, with UP winning two out of their four matches while RCB still searching for their first win after five games.
UP started their campaign with a three-wicket win over Gujarat Giants in their first game. However, they lost their second match against Delhi by 42 runs. The Alyssa Healy-led side came back to winning ways by registering a massive win against RCB by ten wickets but went on to lose their fourth encounter against Mumbai Indians by eight wickets. UP will look to register a massive win over RCB and get their third win under their belt.
On the other hand, RCB are having a horrible tournament so far as they are still searching for their first win of the tournament. They have lost five games on the trot and find themselves in a sea full of problems. The biggest concern for RCB has been Smriti Mandhana’s form as she has amassed just 88 runs at an average of 17.60 in five matches.
RCB’s bowlers have also given away runs at an alarming rate as every bowler for them has an economy of over nine. Problems are aplenty for the Mandhana-led side and it will require a herculean effort to make a comeback in the tournament.
Pitch and Conditions
Out of the six matches played at the DY Patil Sports Academy so far in the tournament, four have been won by teams batting second. There have been two totals in excess of 200 so far at the venue. The captain winning the toss would want to field first, given the record so far in the tournament.
