UPW Women vs GG Women: The third match of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) first season will be played between UP Warriors and Gujarat Giants at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai. Getting back on the field exactly 24 hours after a one-sided defeat by Gujarat Giants by 143 runs in the very first match of the season was not an easy task.
The big problem for Gujarat Giants in this match is that captain Beth Mooney will retire with an injury in the first match and in such a situation Sneha Rana will be seen leading the team in this match. Meanwhile, in place of Mooney, the team has the option of Sophie Dunkley, who can be seen contributing to the team with the bat as well as the ball.
On the other hand, talking about the UP Warriors team, Alyssa Healy, a veteran player of the Australian women’s cricket team, will be seen handling their captaincy. Apart from this, the team also has 3 match winning players in the form of Deepti Sharma, Tahlia McGrath and Sophie Dunkley.
