Latest Match Report – GG Women vs RCB Women 13th Match 2023/24

Gujarat Giants chose Bat vs Royal Challengers Bangalore

Despite a lackluster batting performance in the first leg of the WPL in Bengaluru, Gujarat Giants skipper Beth Mooney set a target for Royal Challengers Bangalore in Delhi. After the chase proved tonic in the first half of the match in Bengaluru, he called their result „little but rude” but wanted his team to be „brave” as they go in search of their first win.

The Giants fielded a fifth different XI in as many games with medium pacer Shabnam Shakil – making his WPL debut aged 16 – replacing offspinner Taranum Pathan in the attack. But there is minimal disruption to the batting line-up as they stick to their opening combination of Mooney and Laura Wohlward, with Veda Krishnamurthy at No.4 as Harleen Deol is out unscathed. Sneh Rana is also not in the XI.

RCB are playing their first match away from home after a marginal win at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. They have won three of their five matches, including a tough win against UP Warriors in Monday's farewell match, to finish second in the table. Although Smriti Mandana preferred to bat first, she was confident that the surface would be good for batting till evening. RCB have already won one match in the chase against the Giants this season – last Tuesday when they restricted GG to 107 for 7 in over six overs.

Gujarat Giants: 1 Beth Mooney (capt/week), 2 Laura Wallward, 3 Phoebe Litchfield, 4 Veda Krishnamurthy, 5 T Hemalatha, 6 Ashley Gardner, 7 Kathryn Price, 8 Tanuja Kanwar, 10 Mannat Kashyap, 11 Shabnam Shakil
