The Royal Challengers Bangalore will play their final match of the Women’s Premier League against the Mumbai Indians Women. The Mumbai team emerged victorious in their previous encounter, but RCB has improved since then and will look to give them a tough fight.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore had a dismal start to the season with five consecutive losses, but managed to make a comeback by winning their next two matches. Unfortunately, it’s too late for them to catch up with the UP Warriorz, even if they win this match.
Ellyse Perry and Sophie Devine have been the most consistent batters for RCB this season, with both scoring two half-centuries. Devine, in particular, was impressive in their last outing, scoring 99 runs off just 36 deliveries as RCB chased down a record target of 185 with more than four overs to spare. However, Smriti Mandhana has failed to convert her good starts into big innings.
Heather Knight, Kanika Ahuja, and Richa Ghosh have played crucial roles for RCB in the lower order and will be expected to provide a late surge in this match.
The bowlers, on the other hand, have been disappointing for RCB this season. Megan Schutt, the most experienced seamer, has taken only three wickets in six matches and has been quite expensive. In their match against the Giants, she conceded 53 runs in four overs, which was the most expensive spell in her T20 career. While Preeti Bose and Shreyanka Patil have bowled some decent spells, their lack of experience on the big stage has caused them to crumble under pressure.
RCB started the season poorly, losing their first five matches, but managed to win their next two. They will look to finish the season on a high note with a victory in this match.
Although the Mumbai Indians Women have the upper hand in their previous encounter, RCB has shown improvement since then and will be determined to give a tough fight. With consistent performances from batters like Perry and Devine, and the lower-order batsmen stepping up, much will rely on the bowlers to perform well under pressure if RCB is to win this match.
