UPW Aims to Regain Momentum in Playoffs Race

UP Warriorz are aiming to regain their momentum in the WPL 2024 playoffs race after recent events have kept them in contention for a top-three finish. Their first challenge is to secure a win against a resurgent Gujarat Giants, who despite losing five out of six games, still have a mathematical chance of qualifying.

Giants’ resurgence has been largely due to captain Beth Mooney’s form with the bat, supported by Laura Wolvaardt and Dayalan Hemalatha in recent games. However, their inability to accelerate in the death overs after a big partnership has been a concern. UPW will look to put pressure on the Giants’ inexperienced bowling attack, similar to how Mumbai Indians did in a recent match.

For UPW, Alyssa Healy will rely on her batters to provide more firepower, following their narrow 1-run win over Delhi Capitals. The match is crucial as the losing team will be eliminated from qualification for the next round.

The match will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, known for its low and slow nature. Both teams will need to adapt to the conditions to gain an advantage.

In terms of team news, UP Warriorz may consider bringing back Chamari Athapaththu or trying out Danni Wyatt in place of Tahlia McGrath. Gujarat Giants are likely to stick with their current lineup, with Beth Mooney leading the team.

Quotes from Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy reflect the competitive nature of the upcoming match and the importance of performing under pressure.
