WPL 2023: The maiden edition of Women’s Premier League (WPL) will begin on March 4 with a match between Gujarat Titans and Mumbai Indians women’s team. Even before the start of the season, Gujarat Titans suffered a major blow in the form of Diandra Datin, who was ruled out for the entire season due to injury. The franchise announced that she has been replaced by Australian women’s player Kimberly Greth.
This information was given by the franchise through a social media post, in which he wrote that Adani Gujarat Giants have decided to bring in Kimberly Greth as a replacement player before the start of the season.

Let us inform you that Gujarat Giants added Diandra Dottin to their team during the auction for Rs 60 Lakhs while no other team included Greth. At the same time, fast bowler Greth, who was part of Australia’s T20 World Cup-winning team recently, excelled in the practice matches played there before the start of the tournament.
Fast bowler Kimberly Greth, who made her international debut in 2010, has so far played 54 T20 matches with 28 ODIs, in which she has taken 23 and 43 wickets. Apart from this, Kim’s batting in the lower order will also be very useful for the team.
Beth Mooney is the captain of the Gujarat team
Talking about the Gujarat Giants team, in the first season, veteran player Beth Mooney will be seen holding the captaincy of Australian women’s cricket team. Apart from this, the team will also have two important players in the form of Ashley Gardner and Annabel Sutherland who can turn the match on their own.
