Match 5: DEL-W vs UP-W



The Women’s IND T20 League's fifth match is set to begin on Tuesday at 07:30 PM IST, 07th March 2023. The fifth match will occur between Meg Lanning's Delhi and Alyssa Healy's UP. This match is scheduled to take place at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai.

Delhi Women got their dream start in the campaign after defeating the much-talked Bangalore side in their opening encounter on Sunday. On the other hand, UP also got started their camp with a nail-biter win over the Gujarat side courtesy of Grace Harris' match-winning 59 off 26 balls.

Both sides will be heading for this match with a win in their opening fixtures. Meg Lanning's side won the match by 60 runs to get two points but also increased their run rate by a considerable margin whereas UP won by 3 wickets and got the two points as well. DEL-W women crushed their opposition in style in their opening fixture of the Women's IND T20 League. They will want to use this win as a catalyst for something special in the upcoming matches.

UP-W chased down the target of 170 runs with three wickets and 1 ball remaining when the side was reduced to 88/6 at one stage. The Aussie all-rounder got to the total by chasing down 19 runs off the final over and this will be a huge boost for the team further in the tournament.

DEL-W women showed their worth in the opening match as they demolished the opposition. They batted first in this contest and went after the bowlers from the get-go and posted the mammoth score of 223/2 on the board. Both the openers Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma started the innings brilliantly and put up a 162-run stand for the first wicket. Lanning scored 72 off 43 and Shafali scored 84 off 45 balls respectively.

While bowling Delhi bowlers kept things tight and did not let the batters score runs easily for BLR-W. English bowler Alice Capsey was the star of the bowling attack as she picked up 2 wickets while conceding only 10 runs in her 2 overs. The 18-year-old was the most economical bowler for the DEL-W. Delhi women will look to continue their good form with the bat against the UP in the next match on Tuesday.

UP has contested and won a match for the ages as Healy's side chased down a stiff target of 170 runs with only one ball remaining. UP-W bowled first and restricted the GUJ-W side to 169 runs. India's top all-rounder Deepti Sharma(27/2) and number one bowler in the world Sophia Ecclestone(25/2) were the picks of the bowlers and they claimed 2 wickets each in the innings.

UP's batters started slow and lost both their openers cheaply but came back into the game thanks to India's Kiran Navgire who scored 53 off 43 balls that included 5 four and 2 sixes in her innings and the star of the match Aussie all-rounder Grace Harris who rocked the stadium with her 59 runs off 26 balls by smashing 7 fours and 3 maximums in her blistering knock.

Pitch & Weather Report

This venue has been a great batting venue, as evidenced by a handful of games between IND-W and AUS-W. Dr DY Patil Sports Academy was excellent for batting in both matches. The wicket has an equal bounce, which makes the hitters' task simpler.

The team winning the toss should put the opposition to bat and test them early on. The main goal should be to restrict the opposition to a score below 170 and chase it down while making total use of the dew factor. This is why we feel that the team winning the toss should bowl first.

The maximum temperature will remain at 36°C, with a low of 27°C with 38% humidity, and a wind speed of 21 Km/hr for the fifth Match, the Women's IND T20 on Mar 07 b/w DEL-W vs UP-W. The weather in Dr DY Patil Sports Academy during the match day will be clear and no rain is predicted.
