Royal Challengers Bangalore Women
The Royal Challengers Bangalore were one of the favorites to win the Women’s Premier League this season. However, after losing all of their first 3 matches, they are currently at the bottom of the points table.
Despite having a strong batting line-up with world-class players like Smriti Mandhana, Ellyse Perry, and Heather Knight, the Bangalore top order has been underwhelming. While Mandhana and Perry have shown glimpses of good form, they have failed to convert their starts into big scores. Sophie Devine has also struggled but managed to score a half-century in the last match. The Indian batters in the middle order have also struggled so far. The bowling attack has been expensive, conceding more than 200 runs in both matches they have bowled first. Renuka Singh Thakur and Megan Schutt were expected to perform well but have failed to contain the opposition batters.

Up Warriorz Women
The UP Warriorz Women are set to face the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their upcoming match at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.
The UP Warriorz began their Women’s Premier League campaign with a win against Gujarat Giants but were defeated in their second match against Delhi Capitals. They heavily rely on Tahlia McGrath and Alyssa Healy to score runs for the team, but lack quality Indian players. The promising batters Simran Shaikh and Shweta Sehrawat will need to perform well in this match, along with Kiran Navgire.
Sophie Ecclestone has been the mainstay of the UP Warriorz’s bowling and has picked up 3 wickets in 2 matches. Deepti Sharma will be the all-rounder who can put pressure on the batters, while Anjali Sarvani is likely to lead the new-ball attack.
The UP Warriorz started with a win in the WPL but lost their last match against Delhi Capitals. Tahlia McGrath played an outstanding knock of 90 runs, but the team could not win the match.
