Capitals, Warriorz aim to get off the mark

Despite the early stages of WPL 2024, both Delhi Capitals and UP Warriorz are aware that they cannot afford many more slip-ups if they are to keep their playoff hopes alive. Both teams lost their opening matches, which they should have won. Delhi Capitals were on the verge of victory against Meg Lanning’s team, needing five runs off the final ball, but a miracle from debutant S Sajana turned the game in favor of the opposition.

UP Warriorz will be disappointed with their inability to close out the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, having been in a winning position with 32 needed off 24 balls and later 11 needed off 9 balls. Despite the results, both teams were competitive and understand that fine-tuning those crucial moments can make a difference.

The upcoming match between the two teams is scheduled for Monday, February 26, at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. Another good batting surface is expected, with some assistance for seamers early on, especially if they vary their pace. Dew might play a role later in the match.

In terms of team news, UP Warriorz might consider bringing in left-arm pacer Anjali Sarvani in place of Saima Thakor, despite Grace Harris performing well. Delhi Capitals are likely to stick with the same XI from the previous match, with Meg Lanning leading a side that showed promise in their opening game.

Meg Lanning expressed satisfaction with her team’s effort in the first game, believing they were close to a win. Alyssa Healy, despite the defeat, highlighted the positives from the match against RCB, emphasizing the unpredictable nature of T20 cricket.
