While ladder leaders Delhi Capitals, with 5 wins and two losses from 7 games, have qualified for the knockouts, the Giants had a challenging start to their season but recovered a little too late, winning 2 of their previous 3 games and are seeded at the bottom of the table with 4 points.

Squads:

Delhi Capitals – Meg Lanning* (C), Marizanne Kapp*, Aparna Mondal, Sneha Deepthi, Alice Capsey*, Titas Sadhu, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Radha Yadav, Minnu Mani, Ashwani Kumari, Arundhati Reddy, Taniya Bhatia, Laura Harris*, Shikha Pandey, Jess Jonassen*, Poonam Yadav, Annabel Sutherland*

Gujarat Giants – Beth Mooney* (C), Phoebe Litchfield*, Lea Tahuhu*, Laura Wolvaardt*, Tanuja Kanwar, Mannat Kashyap, Trisha Poojitha, Meghna Singh, Veda Krishnamurthy, Kathryn Bryce*, Sayali Satghare, Dayalan Hemalatha, Shabnam Shakil, Tarannum Pathan, Priya Mishra, Bharati Fulmali, Ashleigh Gardner*, Sneh Rana

Players to watch out:

Jemimah Rodrigues

The 23-year-old top-order batter, from 7 appearances this WPL, has accumulated 197 runs, striking at 160.16. Jemimah kicked off her season with a solid 42 but departed cheaply in the following games. However, she has managed a comeback, registering scores of 69*, 17, and 58 in her previous few outings. It’ll be expected of the seasoned campaigner to make the most of this return to form.

Arundhati Reddy

The 26-year-old pacer has been in notable form this WPL, scalping 8 wickets from 7 outings, maintaining an economy rate of 7.78. Continuing her excellent form from domestic cricket, Arundhati translated the same into this season, and in her previous 4 outings, she has returned figures of 1/27, 0/32, 1/15, and 1/24. It’ll be hoped she carries this form into the knockouts.

Ashleigh Gardner

The 26-year-old all-rounder hasn’t had the best of campaigns this WPL season, adding only 108 runs to the tally, while with the ball, she has taken 7 wickets from as many games. Ashleigh has registered bowling figures of 2/23, 1/22, and 1/30 in her previous three outings and will be backed to return among runs. In their final league game, she’ll be relied upon for the goods.

Kathryn Bryce

The 26-year-old all-rounder, the only associate player this WPL, debuted with the Giants. Kathryn kicked off her campaign with a score of 25* and figures of 1/22, but the team has failed to make the most of her form, especially with the bat. With the ball, she has produced 4 wickets from 7 games at an economy rate of 8.30, and it’ll be watched if she steps up with an all-round effort.

Pitch:

The center wicket at the Shri Arun Jaitley Stadium is a balanced one that offers a fair contest between bat and ball. While batters enjoy the opportunity to score well with an average in the 150s, bowlers, especially pacers, benefit from the conditions.

Weather:

It will be a pleasant day for cricket at Delhi with mostly cloudy overhead as the chances of rain are minimal. The temperature is forecasted to be around 23°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 42%.

Fantasy playing XI:

Beth Mooney, Meg Lanning, Shafali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Marizanne Kapp, Ashleigh Gardner, Jess Jonassen, Alice Capsey, Poonam Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Titas Sadhu
