Match 8: BLR-W vs UP-W



The Women’s IND T20 League's eighth match is set to begin on Friday at 07:30 PM IST, 10th March 2023. Smriti Mandhana's Bangalore and Alyssa Healy's UP will face off in an exciting match. This match is scheduled to take place at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Both sides are coming to the match after losing their last match. BLR-W come here with a loss against the GUJ-W. UP-W also lost their last game against the Delhi Women, and they will look to get back into form.   

Mandhana's Bangalore has struggled, and the side has lost three games which they have played so far. BLR-W must win this one to stay in the hunt for a place in the playoffs. Their bowlers haven't done well, which is worrying. Healy's UP-W played better cricket, and it will be interesting to see if Bangalore can win this game and keep their hopes alive.  

Mandhana's side is struggling at the bottom of the points table. It was their third consecutive loss of the season as they went down by 11 runs against Gujarat. One more loss will end all their hopes of a place in the playoffs. Mandhana must lead from the front and take her side to victory.

For UP-W they will be looking to work on their basics to win this match against the slight-weakened Bangalore side on Friday. UP-W lost their last match against Delhi by 42 runs in the last match. Meanwhile, it was a fighting knock from Aussie all-rounder Tahila McGrath was the lone warrior of the side who scored 90 off 50 balls that included 11 fours and 4 sixes in her blistering innings, but she did not receive any contribution from other batters while chasing 212 runs.

Match Prediction

Both teams are coming here after losing their last matches. UP-W has a few positives to take from their last game as they turned things around in both departments with the batting and bowling. On the other hand, BLR-W has a lot to do in all three departments, the side has not won any match so far in the tournament and this match is almost a do-or-die for the side and we say UP-W to beat BLR-W in this match.
