There’s still room for late shocks in this almost insignificant conflict of opposites.

The three clubs’ postseason status was guaranteed by Royal Challengers Bangalore’s victory over the Mumbai Indians, making the WPL 2024 league stage championship game meaningless. Nevertheless, there is still a stake in the Delhi Capitals vs. Gujarat Giants match.

Thanks to their steady play throughout the tournament, the Capitals are currently atop the table. They will want to build on this success and finish the league stage with the most victories. The Capitals are expected to go straight to the championship game because MI’s net run rate dropped significantly following the defeat, but Mumbai could overtake them and take the top spot. They’ll need assistance from the Giants, who must win the game, for that.

When: March 13, 2024, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. IST

Where: Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi; Delhi Capitals vs. Gujarat Giants

What to anticipate: The previous several games at this location had featured pitches that contrast with one another. There have been three low-scoring games in addition to the two high-scoring ones. In Delhi, teams that bat first have had greater success—six of the eight games have been won.

News for the team:

Delhi Capitals: With first place virtually certain, the Caps may consider making one or two changes, such as benching Marizanne Kapp and adding Annabel Sutherland.

Meg Lanning (c), Shafali Verma, Alice Capsey, Jemimah Rodrigues, Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Arundhati Reddy, Radha Yadav, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Shikha Pandey, and Titas Sadhu are the probable XI.
