Fantasy Tips of The Day
Ellyse Perry (195 at 49) and Sophie Devine (153 at 31) are the leading run-getters for Bangalore and have featured in the Best11 in four of their last five games.
Along with Ellyse, Tahlia McGrath has hammered consecutive fifties, including the highest score of 90* at the DY Patil Sports Academy.
Kiran Navgire has blown hot and cold in this league but will draw confidence from the fact that she smashed 53 in her opening match in Navi Mumbai.
Deepti Sharma bowls with both new and old ball, increasing her chances to be amongst wickets. In the league, she has picked five wickets including a three-for against UP last week.
Smriti Mandhana might have been dismissed for a single-digit score for two games in a row, but her numbers at the DY Patil Sports Academy make a good reading: 115 runs at 38 in three professional T20I.
Besides inflicting four dismissals, Richa Ghosh has top scores of 37 and 28 in this competition, making it to the Best11 in four of five outings.
In the two games she was a power player, Heather Knight registered all-round performances of 30* runs and two for 17 and 34 runs and two for 40.
When these teams met earlier in the competition, Alyssa Healy (96 runs) and Sophie Ecclestone (four wickets) were the captain and vice-captain of the Best11 Team respectively.
Renuka Thakur Singh has only a wicket to show for her efforts in this league.
