The betting tip is...
MI to score under 75 in the first 10 overs of the game.
With every game, it is getting more difficult to defeat Mumbai Indians. They are on a winning streak and the squad has shown a high amount of aggression in the ongoing season of the Women’s Premier League. The team has a good batting depth and their middle order is the strongest. The bowlers are also doing a great job with Hayley Matthews leading the charts. The future is certain for Mumbai and we will see them in the next round of the tournament.
Mumbai Indians have the winning combination and they won’t make any changes in the playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Hayley Matthews, Yastika Bhatia (wk), Nat Sciver-Brunt, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Amelia Kerr, Dhara Gujjar, Issy Wong, Humaira Kazi, Amanjot Kaur, Jintimani Kalita, Saika Ishaque.
UP Warriorz have shown inconsistency in the tournament. They started the WPL campaign with a win against Gujarat Giants but immediately witnessed a loss in the third fixture against Delhi Capitals. The team is good with the chase but they are still struggling with their bowling attack. The batters are under pressure to score a solid number and take the pressure off the bowlers.
Alyssa Healy has turned out to be the key player for UP Warriorz and she will be part of the starting XI.
Predicted Lineup: Tahlia McGrath, Alyssa Healy, Kiran Navgire, Devika Vaidya, Shweta Sehrawat, Deepti Sharma, Simran Shaikh, Sophie Ecclestone, Shabnim Ismail, Anjali Sarvani, Rajeshwari Gayakwad.
This match is going to be a thriller as both the teams have quality to hurt each other. However, we think MI have a slight advantage over UP and can win this one.
