Delhi Capitals Women vs RCB Women Match Preview- WPL 2024, Match 17

Delhi is all set to host the RCB Women vs Delhi Capitals reverse match on Sunday, March 10. The match starts at 7:30 pm IST. Bengaluru are yet to win against Delhi in the WPL. Delhi will host the remaining 13 games of WPL 2024, including the Playoff and the final.

The two teams have played three matches so far and Delhi has beaten Bengaluru in all three matches. Meg Lanning’s team defeated RCB Women in both matches last season and also in the first big scoring match in the Bengaluru match.

Delhi Capitals Women scored 194/5 in the first match against RCB Women. Despite the best efforts of Smriti Mandhana, who scored 74 in the chae, Bengaluru fell short by 25 runs and finished at 169/9.

Here in Delhi, they are firmly aiming to beat the Delhi Capitals in their own backyard. Delhi won their game against Mumbai Indians and narrowly lost to UP Warriorz by just one run in a tense chase. They have established themselves well as a unit and have opted to bat first rather than defend. However, in the previous match they failed in the chase.

The Arun Jaitley Stadium has had a considerably low bounce in the first few matches compared to the one in Bengaluru. This has helped the players considerably as more balls have been directed towards the stumps. The wicket has come into the picture more frequently. Meanwhile, hitters have had to adapt to the low bounce.

There have been many more layoffs. Batsmen have also been dismissed while trying to play through the line. The low bounce has been one of the main reasons why chasing and batting in general has been more difficult in the second half.

Tone Analysis

The pitch at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium has generally been conducive to batting in T20Is. However, so far in this tournament, the considerable and low bounce at the venue has made batting difficult in the second innings.

The team that batted first was able to score runs more freely and eventually defend the goals as well. Seeing how the first few games played out, batting first seems to be the way to go in the remaining games. There has not been a strong impact from the dew. However, low bounce and spinners have made it difficult to chase targets.
