The Women’s Indian Premier League (WIPL) has become one of the most exciting cricket leagues in the world since its inception. With each passing season, the league has grown in popularity, with fans eagerly anticipating the next edition. The following season of the WIPL 2024 scheduled for 4 march 2024, and fans are already excited about which team will come out on top.
So let’s discuss each team and decide who will win the first-ever WPL.
Deandra Dottin is a pretty fantastic all-rounder. Her stats make her an automatic choice for any team. And this is what the Gujarat Giants management did right. They nailed it this time with her. She has vast experience in T20s, with decent all-around stats. Ashleigh can be a good option for them in the middle overs. She also has a reasonable economy rate and a decent strike rate. Beth Mooney can be a run machine for them. She averages 40 runs per match with a strike rate of 124. Georgia Wareham will be the X-factor in their bowling. She can be the strike bowler who contains the opposition and takes wickets.
Tahlia May McGrath, remember this name. She can do wonders for the team. With her in the squad, there is no way their batting isn’t lethal. Tahlia has an average of 61 and a strike rate of 142 in the T20 format. Can you believe it? These are legendary numbers. She is also quite economical, with 7.77 runs per over. Grace Harris can provide the team’s quick runs, as she has a career strike rate of 173. Shabnim is a lethal strike bowler who can take wickets each match with an economy rate of 5.77. Now cap this with the captaincy of Healy. UP warriors is a lethal team this time.

Delhi Capitals Women
Let’s talk about their skipper Meg Lanning first. She is a run-making machine for the Capitals. With her experience, the team will always go in the right direction. Jess Jonassen can be a pretty great wicket-taking option for them. She has played a total of 100 T20 matches and has 91 wickets so far. Alice Capsey can score quick runs. So it will be a treat to watch her batting. Jemimah Rodrigues is the wall for the DC women. She can score quick runs in the middle order. A good option if the DC succumb to an unfortunate collapse.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Women
Heather Knight’s experience is nothing you can skip when considering a team’s strength. With her in the middle order, there is a wall that the opposition will always have to scale if they want RCB out. Sophie Devine’s profile says she is a batting all-rounder, but do her stats also say the same thing? Scam, my fellows, she is a wicket-taking machine in addition to scoring runs. With Ellyse Perry in the squad, there is no way their bowling or batting is, in any way, weak. Megan Schutt makes their bowling even stronger. She is the strike bowling option for them in the initial overs.
Mumbai Indians Women
The Kiwi bowling allrounder Amelia Kerr can be the strike bowler for the Mumbai Paltan. She is a pretty great leg-break bowler who can contain runs and take wickets. They also have the runs machine Harmanpreet Kaur who doesn’t need an introduction. Do I still have to point out the impact she can have on the team? Hayley Matthews – I am unsure if I should call her an opening batter or an all-rounder. She will be lethal with both bat and ball.
With the next season of the WPL still some time away, it is difficult to predict which team will come out on top. However, based on the previous performances and the various teams’ strengths, the UP Warriorz seems to be winning this time. They have a balanced squad, and the lineup is filled with cricket superstars. Under the captaincy of Alyssa, they have a strong chance of winning.
