DC wins the toss

Earlier in the game, Meg Lanning won the toss and invited Gujarat Giants to bat first at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

Captains word

“We are gonna have a bowl tonight. A new wicket, will see how it plays. Will look to bowl well and chase it down. It’s a new day today, we played well that night, they have some world class players. Poonam Yadav comes in for Tara Norris, we feel that it will suit this matchup,” Meg Lanning, DC captain.

“We have two changes, Laura and Ashwini come in place of Meghana and Annabel. Laura and Dunkley will be opening for us. In the last few matches, we have improved in our bowling and batting. We also have had a few good partnerships with the bat, so we are improving,” Sneha Rana, GG captain.
