Toss Prediction for Today’s WPL Match RCB vs GG
In the recent matches, teams batting first haven’t been able to put up huge scores on the board. Therefore, chasing under lights could be a better way to find a victory. Bowling first after winning the toss would be an ideal choice.
Favorite team to win this match:
Both teams are coming into this competition on the back of a victory in their respective previous game. This match is extremely important for either side as a victory would keep their chances of qualifying for the playoffs alive. However, a defeat would end their campaign.
When these two teams met previously, it was a high-scoring match in which Gujarat Giants scored 201 batting first. Royal Challengers Bangalore battled hard but fell short by just 11 runs. We could witness another close game and this time, because of the slower pitch, the team that chases could have the advantage.
Probable Best Performers of RCB vs GG
The probable best batter of the match:
The experienced Sophie Devine has to put her hand up in this crucial game. She opens the innings for RCB which is a crucial spot. The Kiwi all-rounder is the one to watch out for.
Probable best bowler of the match:
Ashleigh Gardner delivered a brilliant all-round performance in the victory over Delhi Capitals. The Australian could be a threat to the opposition once again.
