DC Women had won the toss & elected to bowl first against Gujarat Giants (GG). GG scored 147-4 where Laura Wolvaardt & Ashleigh Gardner struck half-centuries on an uneven track. Shafali Verma has been in scintillating form in WPL 2023 where she has amassed 179 runs in 5 matches. Shafali Verma‘s speciality is that she has got a wide range of shots.
Jess Jonassen was the pick of the bowlers for DC Women where she took 2 wickets but was a bit expensive where she conceded 38 runs in her 4-over spell. DC Women skipper Meg Lanning would be dejected as they gave away 93 runs in the last 10 overs where the bowlers were taken to the cleaners.

Exciting Contest on Cards
Shafali Verma’s wicket could be a decisive one. All eyes would be on skipper Meg Lanning where the batter will have to bat deep as scoring runs on this track won’t be easy where the odd ball is keeping low. It would be interesting to see how Jemimah Rodrigues fares as the batter is in the form of her life.
GG skipper Sneh Rana would be aware of the fact that they need a cluster of wickets as one partnership of 50-odd runs could put their WPL 2023 playoffs participation in jeopardy. Ashleigh Gardner’s 4 overs would be pivotal as the right-arm off-spinner has the knack of picking key wickets.
