Details: WPL Match 3, UP Warriorz vs Gujarat Giants
Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai
Date and Time: Sunday, March 5, 7.30 PM
The pitch is likely to favor the batters with short boundaries. Gujarat Giants captain Beth Mooney decided to field first after winning the toss. It was a brilliant batting display by Mumbai Indian batters with Hayley Mathews, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Nat Sciver Brunt playing attacking cricket and posting 207 for 5 in 20 overs. In reply, MI bowlers skittled out Gujarat Giants for just 64 as Beth Mooney did not come to bat.
It will be the same conditions as the pitch would favor the batters. Gujarat Giants would look to come back after such a disappointing loss.
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 2.20.
