WPL Final: Preview – Who stands where?

While Mumbai Indians enjoy unprecedented popularity and it would be an added advantage to play in front of the home crowd, the key issue for the otherwise stellar side is the troubled form of its captain Harmanpreet Kaur. UP Warriorz were completely dominating the eliminator and the finale would have seen a different team clashing with Delhi Capitals for the first-ever WPL finale. It was Nat Sciver-Brunt’s unbeaten 72 that helped MI to seal the deal. Kaur could barely manage 14 runs in the ‘Eliminator’. Her poor form may haunt the team today as well.

On the other hand, Delhi Capitals led by Australian skipper Meg Lanning have everything in its arsenal to lift the trophy. Lanning knows how to handle the D-day pressure and has let her bat do the talking. She started the tournament with cool fifties and has managed to keep the scorecard going. Along with the star players such as Jemimah Rodrigues and Shafali Verma, Lanning has a picture-perfect squad to win the title.
