Delhi Capitals Women Playing 11 vs RCB Women- WPL 2024, Match 17


Delhi Capitals Women take on RCB Women in the first leg of WPL 2024 on Sunday, March 10. They are still unbeaten against RCB in WPL history. Delhi won both games last season and won the highest-scoring encounter by 25 runs earlier this season.

Delhi Capitals women, after their defeat in the campaign opener against Mumbai Indians, won their next four games. Their winning streak was ended by UP Warriorz, who won against the DC women by a narrow margin of 1 run in a close game.

Meg Lanning has led this Delhi team wonderfully bringing out the best in every player. Her association with Shafali Varma has been rock solid at the top. Jemimah Rodrigues stood out in the last game. Veterans Marizanne Kapp, Jess Jonassen and Shikha Pandey have also been at their best.

This is Delhi’s third home game and they are looking to make it two out of three at home. It will be interesting to see how they deal with the low bounce of the court against a different opponent.

Delhi capitulated after Lanning’s wicket with a score of 93 in the last match. From 93/3 in the 14th over, Delhi Capitals were bowled out for 137 in the 20th over. RCB will be wary of the possible collapse of DC’s batting in the next game.
