Players to watch

Alyssa Healy: 

The captain of UPWarriorz is a swashbuckling right-handed opening batter from Australia. She is a devastating batter and can take any opposition attack to the cleaners. Besides her aggressive batting, she is arguably the safest house behind the stumps.

Sophie Ecclestone:

The wily left-arm spinner from England will be an integral part of the UP Warriorz bowling line up. She is an aggressive bowler and is very difficult to get away with. She can also be handy with the bat in the middle order and tonk the ball hard.

Ashleigh Gardner: 

After missing out in the first game against Mumbai Indians, the Australian star all-rounder would be itching to go against UP Warriorz. The Gujarat Giants would be banking on the services of this all-rounder.  

Sneh Rana: 

In the absence of Beth Mooney, the regular captain of Gujarat Giants, who went off the field in the last match against Mumbai Indians due to cramps, Rana, the vice-captain, is expected to lead the side. She had two wickets in the previous fixture.

It will be the second match of the tournament at this venue. The team batting first in the last game played here scored more than 200 runs. The wicket looks good for batting. Expect another run feast.


The weather is expected to be mainly clear and warm. The maximum temperature attained during the day will be 28 degrees Celsius. There will be a six percent cloud cover and a zero percent chance of rain. The wind will blow from the north-northwest.
