Details: Women’s Premier League Match 1, Gujarat Giants vs Mumbai Indians
Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai
Date and Time: Saturday, March 4, 8.00 PM
The last time that the Women’s match was played at this venue was between India and Australia on 11 December 2022. It was a great pitch to bat on as the Australian women’s team posted 187 for 1 thanks to brilliant knocks by Beth Mooney and Tahila McGrath.
In reply, Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma gave a perfect start putting on 76 runs for the opening wicket. The match ebbed and flowed before Richa Ghosh produced a special knock along with Devika Vaidya to take the game into the Super Over.
The average first-inning score at this venue is 179 while batting first. It increases to 180 in the 2nd innings. DY Patil Stadium is known to help the batters and is helpful for the bowlers showing their class with slower deliveries.
Since the inaugural edition of the league is all set to take place in Mumbai, a lot of runs can be expected from both sides as well. Betway has also placed its odds in favour of Gujarat Giants’ win at 2.00.
