The first edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) is only a week away and the enthusiasm among the crowd is palpable. Social media is full of excitement in the run-up to the event with everyone’s eyes on the winning team as five franchises battle for the title of being the very first club to take home the title.
Following an auction, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC) are the two teams that have the best on paper. The two franchises have built their teams with care (especially DC) and will begin the tournament as one of the favorites.
Two teams in the WPL teams are full of star players on display that could be match-winners in their day. Although both teams look impressive each in their own way The combined eleven from both teams seems as if it’s one of the most impressive teams around the globe. Do you believe it? Check it out for yourself.
We chose a combined playing 11 for DC as well as RCB to play in this 2023 WPL 2020 season. Look at the following list:
Batters: Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues
The two teams could be having the Indian top three players in T20Is, addressing a lot of problems in middle. Shafali Verma along with Smriti Mandhana are among some of the best opening pairings playing in cricket world-wide and they would be a perfect match, like they do in the past.
With her style of class and speed, Jemimah Rodrigues has a shot at the third slot. Her excellent form will keep the team in good position and give them greater flexibility with the all-rounders of the middle of the order. In this instance, however Meg Lanning, Meg Lanning, the Australian Captain, Meg Lanning, will have to be left out.
All-rounders: Sophie Devine (c), Ellyse Perry, Marizanne Kapp
A major reason for leaving Lanning out is one of the more difficult decisions on this list, however it’s an incredibly rational one as well. The importance of international all-rounders who provide more balance to the team cannot be overstated. With only four slots for overseas players on the WPL It must come to the Australian captain who is left out.
Sophie Devine will assume the leadership role for this team, with her New Zealand captain bringing enough knowledge and experience on the pitch. It is worth noting that she was also the one who was the captain of in leading the Perth Scorchers to the WBBL title a few years ago. Alongside her is the Scorchers co-player Marizanne Kapp.
This South African all-rounder needs no introduction. He will effortlessly slot into the field whenever needed, using balls or bats. In terms of someone who needs an introduction. Ellyse Perry is the final name on the list of all-rounders in this list, and makes it appear like a formidable middle player which could prove to be a formidable force to be reckoned with.
Wicketkeeper: Richa Ghosh
Awarded by the Royal Challengers Bangalore for a bargain during auction at the WPL auction Richa Ghosh did not face much competition to be in the team, with only Taniya Bhatia competing for her place. For fairness, to be honest with the 18-year old the U19 T20 World Cup winner, she’d probably still be included on the list there were more competitors.
Richa has been awe-inspiring, not just with her glovework , but also her ability to hit with power. The wicketkeeper from Siliguri meets the criteria of modern-day finishers in white-ball cricket, specifically in the shorter format. In fact she is among the best rate of strike for women’s cricket and may continue to show that kind of performance for the WPL.
Bowlers: Jess Jonassen, Radha Yadav, Shikha Pandey, Renuka Singh
The team has lots of bowling options, including all of the mentioned all-rounders capable of contributing. Therefore, in order to make up the the bowling team for this combined RCB as well as DC WPL side, it’s an unstoppable attack that will be enough for the team.
Shikha Pandey as well as Renuka Singh will assume the roles of the frontline pacers in the team, along with the left-arm spin pair consisting of Jess Jonassen and Radha Yadav along with them. The team not only have plenty of bowling options, they are also able to bat in depth.
If the team chooses another alternative, Shafali Verma can roll her arms over to get some off-spin. There are options on the bench include a lot of Poonam Yadav, allow the team to bring an leg-spinner to the team in the event of need.
