Full Commentary: Royal Challengers Bangalore Women vs UP Warriorz, 8th Match

Pretty positive. The main message from the captain and coach has been true to true, we are enjoying this experience and playing with smiles on our face, looking to make the most of it. She (Harris) took the news really well, every time I looked at the big screen she had a smile on her face and was cheering on the team. It is a good problem to have such a quality player miss out but we have a good team mentality here and everyone is just team first. I was happier when I got the first ball duck but got the win, cricket is a funny game and hopefully we are back to winning. I did enjoy some time out in the middle, the World Cup was enjoyable, I had to play a slightly different role in the Australian team but absolutely loved that, I just love batting and I enjoyed my time in the middle, hopefully some more runs in the tournament. It is all about embracing and enjoying this experience, really making the most of this experience.

Pretty sure we wanted to bat first. But we get to bowl first. Hopefully we’ll restrict them to something we can chase. Pitch is not going to change too much. Shabnim Ismail misses out, Grace Harris is back in, much to everyone’s delight. You look at the other night, we lost by 40, but if someone was there with Tahlia, we could’ve got closer.

—-Healy

Would like to bat first. Looks a good wicket. We’ve seen in the tournament a good total on the board helps. As a bowling unit, we had a word about bowling plans with regard to the short boundaries. Not the way we wanted to start, but it’s a long tournament, want to keep our heads high.

Women’s T20 League: Bangalore vs. UP

The Women’s T20 League has been an exciting tournament this year, with top teams battling it out for the title. In the upcoming match, Bangalore will take on UP at Mumbai’s Brabourne Stadium.

This is an important game for both teams, with Bangalore still searching for their first win of the competition and UP looking to climb up the points table.

Led by Smriti Mandhana and Alyssa Healy, these two teams have some of the best players in the world, making for an exciting matchup.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at both teams and what we can expect from this match.

Bangalore’s Performance So Far

Bangalore’s campaign in the Women’s T20 League has not gone as planned so far. They have lost both their opening matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table. In their previous match, they lost to Gujarat by 11 runs while chasing a target of 202 runs.

Team Analysis: Bangalore

Bangalore has had a tough start to their season, losing both of their opening matches. However, they have a strong squad that can turn things around quickly.

Led by Smriti Mandhana, the team will look to put on a better show against UP. Sophie Devine has been their standout performer with the bat, scoring 70 runs in the first two games.

However, the team needs more contributions from other players like Mandhana and Ghosh. Perry and Knight will be important all-rounders for the team, providing both batting and bowling options. In the pace department, Schutt and Singh will be crucial with their swing and pace.

Bose and Patil are a good spin duo and can put pressure on the opposition batsmen. Bangalore will look to use their collective strengths to get their first win of the season.

Leading Run-Scorers

Sophie Devine has been the standout performer for Bangalore so far, scoring 114 runs in two matches at an average of 57.00. However, she has not received enough support from the rest of the batting lineup. Smriti Mandhana and Richa Ghosh have struggled to get going, scoring only 37 and 25 runs respectively.

Bowling Attack

Bangalore’s bowling attack has been underwhelming, conceding 194 and 201 runs in their first two matches. Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry has been their best bowler, picking up three wickets so far. England’s captain Heather Knight has also been useful with the ball, picking up two wickets.

Team Analysis: UP

UP has had a better start to their campaign, with one win and one loss in their first two games. They will be looking to build on their success so far and climb up the points table.

Alyssa Healy, the team’s captain, will lead from the front with her aggressive batting. Sehrawat and Navgire need to step up with the bat and provide support to Healy.

In the bowling department, Ecclestone has been the standout performer so far, taking three wickets in two games. Ismail, Sharma, and Sarvani will provide support in the pace department. UP has a well-balanced team and will look to put pressure on Bangalore from the outset.

UP’s Performance So Far

UP has had a mixed start to their campaign in the Women’s T20 League. They won their first match against Rajasthan but lost their second match against Delhi.

Leading Run-Scorers

Alyssa Healy has been the top run-scorer for UP so far, scoring 63 runs in two matches at an average of 31.50. Jyoti Kumari and Ruchi Sharma have also contributed with the bat, scoring 50 and 40 runs respectively.

Bowling Attack

UP’s bowling attack has been decent so far, picking up 11 wickets in two matches. England’s left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone has been their best bowler, picking up five wickets at an economy rate of 5.75. South Africa’s Shabnim Ismail and Indian medium-pacer Nishi Gupta have also chipped in with two wickets each.

Head to Head Record

Bangalore and UP have faced each other twice in the Women’s T20 League, with both teams winning one match each. Their last meeting took place in 2019, where Bangalore emerged victorious by five wickets.

Key Battles to Watch Out For

  1. Sophie Devine vs. UP’s Pace Attack – Devine has been in great form with the bat and will look to continue her good run against UP’s pace attack.
  2. Alyssa Healy vs. Bangalore’s Spin Duo – Healy’s aggressive batting against the spin duo of Bose and Patil will be a key battle to watch out for.
  3. Mandhana and Ghosh vs. UP’s Pace Attack – Mandhana and Ghosh have yet to make a significant impact this season and will be looking to get back in form against UP’s pace attack.

Match Prediction : WPL 2023: Royal Challengers Bangalore Women vs UP Warriorz, 8th Match

This match could go either way, with both teams having their strengths and weaknesses. However, Bangalore will be determined to get their first win of the season, and this could give them the edge. UP, on the other hand, will be looking to continue their good form and climb up the points table.

It promises to be an exciting match that could go down to the wire.
