World’s finest players have assembled in Mumbai to play WPL 2023. Let’s have a look at their potential to clinch the trophy.
Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, And UP Warriorz Started Their WPL 2023 Campaign With Wins
Mumbai Indians recorded a landslide victory over Gujarat Giants (GG) on the first day of WPL 2023. Their skipper Harmanpreet Kaur looked in fine touch and played a significant knock against Giants. After suffering a huge loss against MI, Giants lost narrowly to UP Warriorz on 5 March. With two back-to-back losses, the Giants are looking into deep trouble in WPL 2023.
Delhi Capitals won their first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore comfortably. Their skipper Meg Lanning and opener Shefali Verma performed exceptionally well on their WPL debut. UP Warriorz showed a lot of promise in their first WPL game. The performance of Grace Harris and Kiran Navgire helped them to overpower Gujarat Giants.
Star-studded RCB lost their first game against Delhi, however, they still have seven matches remaining in the group stage. They can still outshine other teams if their star players like Ellyse Perry, Smriti Mandhana, Renuka Singh Thakur and Sophie Devine perform well in the next few games.
