Women’s Premier League: Giants test awaits Royal Challengers Bangalore
Buoyed by their long-awaited win in the last game, Royal Challengers Bangalore can take the field with more confidence when they face Gujarat Giants in the Women’s Premier League at the Brabourne Stadium on Saturday.
After five back-to-back defeats, RCB beat UP Warriorz on Wednesday to open their account in the tournament.
But the Giants will be equally motivated after their 11-run win over Delhi Capitals on Thursday.
Calcutta: With the race for the playoffs getting intense, the UP Warriorz would be desperate to add to their tally of two wins on Saturday.
But for that, they will have to overcome the mighty Mumbai Indians, who are yet to lose a game in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League.
Mumbai have already qualified for the playoffs. The top team after the league stage will qualify directly for the final, while the second and third-placed teams would face off in an Eliminator to decide the other finalist.
