Mumbai Indians Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur Wins Toss, Elects To Bowl In WPL 2024 Opener

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India]: Defending Champions Mumbai Indians skipper Harmanpreet Kaur won the toss and elected to bowl first in the opening fixture of the Women's Premier League (WPL) against Delhi Capitals (DC) on Friday.

This encounter is a repeat of last year's WPL final where the Harmanpreet Kaur-led Mumbai Indians emerged victorious as they defeated the Capitals by seven wickets to be the champions of the inaugural season.

"We'll bowl first. Dew is the factor, that's the only reason we want to bowl first. We have a balanced side, we have three debutants in our team. Looking positive. Message is the same, we want to keep things simple and need to stick to our plans," Kaur said after winning the toss.

"It looks like a good wicket, plenty of runs in it. Mumbai are on a good side, looking forward to the challenge. I am really looking forward to this tournament. Preparations have been good, squad is well settled, just need to play with freedom. We are going with four seamers and three spinners, some good options throughout the innings. She (Harmanpreet) is a competitor, looking forward to this game," DC skipper Meg Lanning said at the time of the toss.

Delhi Capitals Playing XI: Meg Lanning (c), Shafali Verma, Alice Capsey, Jemimah Rodrigues, Marizanne Kapp, Annabel Sutherland, Arundhati Reddy, Minnu Mani, Taniya Bhatia, Radha Yadav, Shikha Pandey

Mumbai Indians Playing XI: Yastika Bhatia (wk), Hayley Matthews, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Amelia Kerr, Pooja Vastrakar, Amanjot Kaur, Sajeeven Sajana, SB Keerthana, Shabnim Ismail, Saika Ishaque.
