The Royal Challengers Bangalore (BAN-W) are set to face off against the Gujarat Giants (GUJ- W) in the fifth match of the Women's Premier League (WPL 2024). The game is scheduled to take place at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on February 27th at 7:30 PM IST. RCB won their first match in a thrilling encounter against UP Warriorz in front of a packed crowd. 

Richa Ghosh and Sabbhineni Meghana were at the front of the RCB batting lineup in the last game with their half-centuries taking RCB to a competitive score in the first innings whereas in the bowling department, Sobhana Asha rattled the UP Warriorz with a five-wicket haul. 

They would like to continue on their winning ways in front of their home crowd which has been passionately supporting them which was evident in their last game as the crowd was UP where the crowd was all a sea of red.

Gujarat on the other hand had a forgetful first game as they were hammered by the Mumbai Indians in a one-sided affair. Despite the loss, Tanuja Kanwar emerged as a bright spot for the Giants, taking 2 crucial wickets for only 21 runs in her 4 overs.

Pitch and Playing Conditions

The M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru is usually known for its batting-friendly pitch with short boundaries. This allows batsmen to score big runs easily. However, in the ongoing IPL season, things have been a bit different.

Surprisingly, the pitch has been slower this year, offering some help to the bowlers as well. This has resulted in a lower average score of 115 runs per match. In the matches played so far in WPL, there has been some due towards the later part of the game which has prompted the teams to bowl first on this ground.
