DC Women had won the toss & opted to bowl first against Gujarat Giants(GG) at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. GG had a decent powerplay where they scored 32 runs for the loss of 1 wicket. Laura Wolvaardt & Harleen Deol took their time as the pitch was not a belter one. Laura Wolvaardt played the role of the anchor while Ashleigh Gardner was in a lethal mode.
GG are in a precarious position where they have won only 1 match out of 5 and are in a must-win situation to qualify for the playoffs in WPL 2023. DC Women on the other side would be aiming for the top of the position where they have won 4 matches out of 5 and have looked quite invincible.

Crucial Phase for both teams
If GG get a score past 150 then they would sense that they have got a great chance of winning the match. All eyes would be on Ashleigh Gardner as the batter has looked in complete control throughout the innings. Skipper Sneh Rana would be aware of the fact that DC Women have got a dangerous batting lineup where Shafali Verma can take the game away in a couple of overs.
DC Women skipper Meg Lanning has been magnificent and she has shown that she can play the waiting game also which is priceless in modern cricket. The peculiarity of DC Women batters is that they have got a lot of match-winners present in the team which makes them a dangerous unit.
