Match Preview

In the first match of the inaugural season of the Women’s Premier League, it will be Gujarat Giants up against Mumbai Indians Women.

Led by Harmanpreet Kaur, Mumbai Indians Women has an eclectic mix of both international and upcoming Indian players in their squad.

On the other hand, Gujarat Giants have Beth Mooney as their skipper and have been able to procure top-notch talent for the first season.

If we analyze the teams up close, then we can see that Gujarat Giants have a great wealth of international stars up their sleeve.

Along with Mooney, there are other stars such as Ashleigh Gardner, Deandra Dottin, and Annabel Sutherland in the team.

However, the one weakness that will pull the Giants back is their lack of quality Indian players in their squad.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians Women have it all as they have a good blend of Indian and foreign players.

Additionally, players like Harmanpreet, Nat Sciver-Brunt, and Hayley Matthews will play crucial roles with both bat and ball.

Furthermore, they have an untapped reserve of Indian players which they will look to utilize throughout the tournament.

Thus, we have a great contest on our hands tomorrow as we witness a historical moment in women’s cricket tomorrow.
