Mumbai.The Women’s Premier League has started with a bang. There is going to be a fierce competition in the second match of the league. On Sunday, the most expensive player of the league and the world champion will be face to face and when 2 big stars will go against each other, the high voltage of the match is also certain. In the second match of the league, the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, led by Smriti Mandhana, the most expensive player, will take on the field against Delhi Capitals, whose captain is world champion Mag Lanning.
Mandhana is the most expensive player in the league. In the auction, RCB bought him for Rs 3.4 crore. RCB also have big names like Ellyse Perry, Heather Knight and Sophie Devine, but on paper, world champion Australian great Meg Lanning’s Delhi Capitals are a bit heavy.

Delhi strong and dangerous
Jess Jonassen, Marijane Kapp and Alice Capse are likely to be 4 foreign players in Lanning’s team, but Delhi’s Indian line-up is strong as well as dangerous. Shefali, Jemima Rodrigues, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Tania Bhatia, Radha Yadav are all experienced players of India. Not only this, Delhi also has under-19 world champion fast bowler Titas Sadhu, Kashmir’s Jasia Akhtar and wicketkeeper Aparna Mandal.
It is easy for Mandhana to choose 4 foreign players, which can be Kapp, Knight, Parry and fast bowler Megan Schutt, but his headache is to decide the place of at least 4 Indian players. Three of them are she, Richa Ghosh and fast bowler Renuka Thakur.
