RCBW vs DCW – WPL – Team Previews
Royal Challengers Bangalore Women
In their previous encounter, the Capitals won by a whopping 60-run margin, which has had a significant impact on the season for both teams. Delhi have emerged as one of the strongest teams in the tournament, while RCB have struggled with their performances, losing all four games.
RCB currently holds the bottom position in the points table and is hoping to turn things around as they enter the second half of the Women’s Premier League. Although RCB’s powerplay run rate of 8.91 is very good compared to other sides, their middle and lower-order batsmen have not been able to capitalize on their starts, resulting in several unsuccessful matches.
Sophie Devine and Ellyse Perry have been among the leading run-scorers in the competition, with Devine finding her form at the top of the order, while Perry played a vital role in the previous match, scoring an impressive 52 runs off just 39 deliveries. Although the rest of the RCB batting lineup failed to contribute much, Devine managed to score 36 runs off 24 balls in the match before.
Delhi Capitals Women
The Delhi Capitals Women’s team is the clear favorite to win this match and complete their second victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore this season. After a disappointing third match, Delhi Capitals bounced back in the fourth game with a 10-wicket win.
Shafali Verma’s unbeaten knock of 76 runs off just 28 balls, including 10 fours and 5 sixes, helped Delhi chase down the target of 106 runs in just 7.1 overs. Captain Meg Lanning and Jemimah Rodrigues have also been in excellent form with the bat.
The Capitals’ lower-middle order is strengthened by Laura Harris, who is known for her clean striking in T20 cricket. Although Harris was included in the XI in the previous game against Gujarat Giants, the team’s ten-wicket victory denied her an opportunity to bat.
The Capitals have a plethora of bowling options, with even Minnu Mani contributing with her performance against the Giants. This provides the team with a comfortable cushion of options.

RCBW vs DCW – WPL – Match Prediction
It is very hard to look past a Delhi Capitals win in this game. Royal Challengers Bangalore are struggling and similarly to the men’s team, they have an imbalanced squad and have to rely on their superstars. We expect a win for the Delhi Capitals Women.
