It will be an exciting contest with the kind of form the two sides have shown. MUM-W has a stronger bowling attack, which will pose a big challenge for Delhi. Meg Lanning-led Delhi won't let their opponents have it easy in this game. We expect a close fight as the two sides battle for supremacy.

Delhi will feel confident coming into this contest with a positive net run rate of +2.550 and staying in second place. DEL-W has won both games and defeated the UP-W by 42 runs in the last game. The batting looks good, and the bowlers have also delivered the goods. It will be a tougher challenge against Mumbai, and Lanning will look to lead from the front.  

The skipper of the side Lanning has done well in two games and would like to deliver a strong start along with the destructive opener Shafali Verma. In the middle order, they have the experience of Marizanne Kapp, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Alice Capsey, and all these players have done well in the last two games. The likes of Aussie all-rounder Jess Jonassen and India's Taniya Bhatia add firepower to the batting in the lower middle order.  

Harmanpreet Kaur-led MUM-W would be extremely pleased with the performance of her players. Mumbai stays on the top of the table with a positive net run rate of +5.185 with 2 out of 2 wins. MUM-W has demolished their opponents in both games and come here with a 9-wicket win against the BLR-W. Kaur will look to carry the same momentum forward and deliver a strong show in this contest.  

Windies skipper Hayley Matthews and India's Yastika Bhatia are in excellent form and would like to deliver a good start in this game. The middle order is formidable for the team, with Harmanpreet Kaur, Nat Sciver-Brunt, and Amelia Kerr bringing in experience for MUM-W, and they will look to build partnerships.
