Match Prediction

Meg Lanning-led Delhi is on the top of its game with three wins in four games. The skipper of the side Lanning and destructive opener Verma lead the run scorer’s chart. Both the batters have a two hundred-and-one-fifty-run partnership in 4 games played together. Delhi has already beaten Bangalore by a big margin.

On the other hand, Mandhana-led BLR-W struggled to score runs and take wickets throughout the season so far. BLR-W's key players are underperforming, costing them all four games. We say DEL-W to win this match against Bangalore to pick their 4th win of the tournament.
