Match 13: UP-W vs BLR-W



The Women’s IND T20 League's 13th match is set to begin on Wednesday at 07:30 PM IST, 15th March 2023. This is a match that matters so much for BLR-W if they want to keep their hopes alive for the next round of the competition then the side has to win all their remaining matches and must wait for other matches to result in their favour. Smriti Mandhana's BLR-W will face off against Alyssa Healy's UP-W in an important match. This match is scheduled to take place at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. Both sides are heading for this match after losing their last fixtures in the league.

UP-W has won two matches and lost two matches in the Women’s IND T20 League so far. The Healy-Led side will have a mental edge over Bangalore in the coming match due to the latter’s form. Uttar Pradesh will put its previous loss behind them as they face a new challenge in the coming days. A win here will put them very close to the top 2 spots. UP-W currently stands with 4 points with a net run rate of  +0.015. On the other hand, BLR-W has lost all 5 matches which the side has played so far, standing last in the points table with a negative net run rate of -2.109.

Mandhana's side Bangalore will need a win at any cost. BLR-W will have to fight tooth and nail from here onwards to make something of this year’s competition, losing all their matches so far, disappointing their huge fan base. Another loss will dent their hopes of getting into the knockout stage of the competition even further.

Healy's UP-W is having a decent tournament so far, although a loss in the previous match will certainly act as a thorn in their stride. Uttar Pradesh was completely outplayed in the previous match as they lost by 8 wickets. Batting first the UP-W managed 159 runs in their 20 overs. Skipper Alyssa Healy scored 58 runs off 46 balls and Tahlia McGrath scored 50 off 37 balls in the innings.

The bowlers did not have any luck as hardly anyone rattled the opposition batter. UP-W bowlers managed to pick up only 2 wickets in the innings as the opposition team chased down the total with comfort. They will have to improve if they want to enter the race for the knockout phase of the league.

BLR-W is having a Women’s IND T20 League to forget at the moment. The side filled with so many superstars is struggling at the bottom of the table without a win so far. Bangalore lost its previous match in a nail-biting contest by 2 balls against second-placed DEL-W. The fifth-placed Bangalore put up a subpar score of 150 on board with Ellyse Perry remaining unbeaten on 67 runs off 52 balls with the help of 4 fours and 5 sixes. Perry was well supported by Richa Ghosh who helped her along the way with a cameo of 37 runs in 16 balls that included 3 fours and 3 sixes.

Mandhana's bowlers tried their level best to defend this small total of 150 runs against the unstoppable gun batting unit of DEL-W. For BLR-W, Sobhana Asha was the best bowler for the team as she picked up 2 wickets while conceding 27 runs in her 4-over spell. Delhi chased down the total in the final over with two balls to spare and won the match by 6 wickets and making it 4 wins out of 5 matches.

Match Prediction

Alyssa Healy's UP-W is in third place in its game with two wins in four games. On the other hand, BLR-W is in a dire state from not winning any matches in the tournament so far. Uttar Pradesh also comes into this game after a huge loss against table toppers MUM-W by 8 wickets. However, the desperation for a win and a very strong squad makes us choose the BLR-W over the Healy's in this match.

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 UP-W to win this match against Bangalore.
