Match number 13 of the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League will see UP lock horns against Bangalore. While UP has had a mixed season so far, winning two and losing the remaining two of their matches, Bangalore have had a forgettable run in the tournament so far and have not been able to taste a single win.
Both teams though have some quality individual performers in their ranks which can make this game bit tricky as far as making a Fantasy side for this fixture is concerned.
UP vs Bangalore Fantasy Tips For Grand League (Low-Risk Options):
As wicketkeepers can help users get points through their performance both with the bat as well as catching and stumpings from behind the stumps, they become a crucial part of the Fantasy side. UP’s Alyssa Healy could be the preferred keeper in the Fantasy game for this side based on her performances in the league so far. If the balance of the side allows, try roping in Bangalore’s Richa Ghosh too who can be a game changers and has been one of the litter brighter aspects compared to some of the other marquee players that the team has.
Smriti Mandhana hasn’t had a great run either with the bat or as a captain. So based purely on current form, one can choose to bet against her. However, believers of the law of averages can go ahead with her especially since she bats up the order and can face the most number of deliveries if she gets going. Sophie Devine and Heather Knight from Bangalore are a must in this fantasy team, given they have also chipped in with the ball and tasted success other than their primary role of run-scoring. From UP, Kiran P Navgire can be a good pick especially for those looking at a player available at fewer credits.
Ellyse Perry has arguably been Bangalore’s best player in the season so far and it will be too much of a risk to not pick her. Cricketing rational suggests that she could even be one of the options who could be considered for a captain or a vice-captain’s role. Deepti Sharma and Tahila McGrath from UP are other all-rounders who could be considered for a place in the Fantasy team.
Sophie Ecclestone and Meghan Schutt are top picks from among the bowlers who will be plying their trade in this match. Shreyanka Patil, Rajeshwari Gayakwad are other bowlers who can be considered for a place in the Fantasy side.
