The eighteenth match of WPL 2023 will be played between Mumbai Indians Women and Delhi Capitals Women at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on March 20. Mumbai Indians faced their first defeat against UP Warriorz in their last game whereas Delhi Capitals lost to Gujarat Giants by 11 runs in their last game.
It is also noteworthy that both Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals have qualified for the playoffs considering their stunning shows throughout the tournament. It will be interesting to see which team will end their campaign as the table toppers as well.
Harmanpreet Kaur, Mumbai Indians captain said: “Credit goes to all the support staff and team-mates. The way we have been playing, we want to continue. We are so positive and they always want to do well for the team. When we got this team, I was really happy, they were doing well for the country and now they will do the same for MI. The positivity is giving all the results. When we played last game on this wicket, initially you are not going to get runs.

Once you get settled you will get runs. That’s what I did today. Whatever which is giving results is what I’m doing. Sometimes you have to see the boundary dimensions as well. The leg-side is short and a medium-pacer was bowling and that’s why I went and the last-over anyway you need to go, but this was the longer boundary and I could not clear.”
Meg Lanning, the Delhi Capitals Captain said: “We felt that if we bat out the overs, we could actually get over the line. Gujarat team bowled very well. We didn’t play to our potential tonight. Our bowlers did an excellent job and I think they were 20-25 short. We didn’t take that many wickets but we contained them quite well. With wickets in the back end, obviously they would score a bit. It is a good learning opportunity for us. My shot to get out was poor.
Playing across the line on a track where I should have played straight and two key run-outs. We lost momentum as we kept losing wickets but credit to Gujarat. (On Harleen Deol) We spoke a bit about her, she bowls a bit of off spin and leg spin. She put the balls in the right areas and got the rewards. Everyone has been busy so they will enjoy their time off tomorrow.”
