Mumbai, on the other hand, will be trying to secure another victory and keep the tournament winning streak going.

MI-W vs. RCB-W Review of Pitch
There will be two high-scoring fields used during the WPL 2023. The batsmen in the first two games’ opening innings were completely berserk, and the third game will likely follow suit. If the captain chooses to bat first after winning the toss, they may do so to gain an early advantage if they take into account the advantage enjoyed by the batters in the first few innings.
Mumbai Indians Women (MI-W): Hayley Matthews, Yastika Bhatia (wk), Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Nat Sciver-Brunt, Amelia; Royal Challengers Bangalore Women (RCB-W):Amanjot Kaur, Humaira Kazi, Issy Wong, Jintimani Kalita, Saika Ishaque, Kerr, Pooja Vastrakar
Smriti Mandhana (c), Sophie Devine, Heather Knight, Disha Kasat, Ellyse Perry, Richa Ghosh (wk), Kanika Ahuja, Asha Shobana, Poonam Khemnar, Megan Schutt, and Renuka Thakur are the players for Royal Challengers Bangalore Women (RCB-W).
