Two in-form teams in the form of Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians will be crossing swords with each other in Match number 7 of the ongoing Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2023.
Both the teams have been in red-hot and blistering form and would be keen to keep their winning run in-tact and get another win under their belt. If we carefully take a look at the wins which these 2 teams have had in their first 2 games, then we understand that the two teams have flexed their dominant muscles over their counterparts in WPL 2023 so far.
Delhi Capitals lock horns with Mumbai Indians today at the D.Y. Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. The match is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
Both the captains of DC and MI are in form
The skipper of Delhi Capitals, Meg Lanning has been in stupendous form in WPL 2023. The dashing batter has notched up two back-to-back half-centuries. She has been leading from the front and is setting an example.
Harmanpreet Kaur too has been the leader which Mumbai Indians needed. She scored the first half-century of WPL 2023 in the opening game. Kaur would be looking to shoulder the responsibilities of the team in this game as well.
Hayley Matthews has been in stupendous form for Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians opening batter Hayley Matthews has been in a rich vein of form in the ongoing WPL 2023. She bagged the player of the match award in Mumbai’s previous game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise.
The West Indian batter scored an unbeaten knock of 77* in 38 deliveries. Her innings was laced with 13 fours and 1 six.
All eyes will be on her as she would be looking to power her side to a good start in the powerplay.
