In order for Gujarat Giants (GG) to remain in the race for a playoff berth, the match against Delhi Capitals (DEL) on March 16 is extremely crucial as it will determine whether they can remain in the competition or not. As a team, they have had a fairly pale performance throughout most of the tournament, winning just one out of five matches. In the absence of a captain, the batting unit has certainly felt the absence of Beth Mooney, who is already ruled out of the tournament. It is because the team has yet to demonstrate that they are
capable of doing the kind of damage that they are capable of.
There was also a sense of confusion amongst the team management concerning the playing XI. In the tournament, Sophia Dunkley scored a sensational half-century against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first game of the competition. However, she was dropped by the team and was called up again just after the match. It is important to note that Sneh Rana isn't an experienced campaigner when it comes to captaincy, and some of her decisions in the last few matches have backfired due to her inexperience. Meanwhile, Ashleigh Gardner has done a pretty good job with the ball so far. She will definitely be one of the players to watch out for in the upcoming matches.
Coming to the Meg Lanning-led side, Delhi have managed to win four out of their five matches in the competition. Allrounders Jess Jonassen and Marizanne Kapp were sensational in the last match against RCB. The opening duo of Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma have done a commendable job so far in the tournament. The side has looked really sharp on the field courtesy of which, they are currently one of the favorites to win the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL).

Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Giants met a couple of days ago in the 9th match at New Mumbai where Capitals smashed Giants by 10 wickets.
Total number of matches: 1
Delhi Capitals won: 1
Gujarat Giants Won: 0
Team Preview: Delhi Capitals
The last time the two sides met, two individual performances from the Capitals wowed the crowd. It was Marizanne Kapp who broke the Giants batting order with a whistle, followed by Shafali Verma's scintillating knock that did the damage.
With Verma, Lanning, Alice Capsey and Jemimah Rodrigues firing the bat for Delhi, the Giants have a tough task ahead of them. Also, Jess Jonassen left no doubt about the Capitals middle and lower middle order in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Shikha Pandey's breakthrough in the game the Capitals played last night is good news for the team's bowling department. Once Radha Yadav starts claiming the wickets, Lanning's team will be hard to stop. In order to ensure the balance of the team, Arundhati Reddy should step down from the playing eleven so that a batsman can take her place.
Team Preview: Gujarat Giants
In addition to failing to click, the Giants team was also confusing. S. Meghana's constant support despite repeated failure and playing Mansi Joshi without giving her the ball left everyone baffled. Their batting failed against Mumbai, leaving their chances of a top 3 finish slim.
The Giants can't turn their fortunes around until they bat like Ashleigh Gardner and Meghana Fire. Instead of being strict with their selection, they should bring in Laura Wolvaardt instead of Sutherland and test their bench.
