Exciting WPL Final 2024 RCB vs Delhi: A Thrilling Battle for New Champion Emerges

In the anticipation of the WPL final clash between RCB and DC, the cricket world is abuzz with excitement.

It feels too fresh to be having heated discussions about the necessity of a competition like the WPL.

They claimed there wasn’t enough depth in quality to divide into a sufficient number of clubs to establish a league and draw spectators. 25,000 spectators filled the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Friday night to watch Royal Challengers Bangalore defeat Mumbai Indians in the elimination round.

The same crowd will cheer the Delhi Capitals, who will get another chance at WPL gold, with fervor on Sunday. They were defeated by nerves last year when playing Mumbai. With a stadium packed of supporters, things might go differently this time.

The Capitals arrived here after a commanding performance in the group round. They have now qualified for the finals straight twice in the last two seasons by winning the pool. The road for RCB has not been easy. They had a mid-season dip after starting the season with two victories, but they overcame the defending champions twice to get here.

It is not surprising that the IPL histories of these two teams have been discussed extensively. RCB and the Capitals have participated in the event since 2008, however neither team has ever taken home a trophy. The Capitals have advanced to three finals, while the RCB has made four. One of them will undoubtedly be creating room for their first trophy.

Each team has made significant investments in their scouting apparatus. This was amply supported by Asha Sobhana’s unflappable final over on Friday night, which dethroned Mumbai. If not for an opportunity at the WPL, it’s possible that at 33 she would have been a minor note on some domestic scorecards.

To propel them ahead, the Capitals have chosen a core group of young Indian players. This includes Arundhati Reddy and Radha Yadav, who were not part of the conversation over the Indian team. Strong efforts here, the result of strong support from Meg Lanning and the coaching team. A nationwide call-up will no longer feel so unexpected.

There’s going to be a knock-on effect from Shafali Verma’s conversations with Lanning about being more consistent and merciless and about stepping up her game. The way that Minnu Mani grinned and Lanning hugged her after she dribbled past Ash Gardner’s defense demonstrated the benefits of a team culture that encourages young players to find their own identities and develop as people.

From there, Shreyanka Patil—a discovery of WPL 2023—has advanced rapidly. She played in Friday’s Eliminator despite having a hairline fracture and defied the advice to rest in order to avoid making her injury worse. She gave an incredible performance.

On Sunday night, the greatest stage of them all will once again host tales of grandeur, inspiration, and optimism. And at the end, there will be a new champion in the WPL. It seems appropriate.

Asha Sobhana and Jemimah Rodrigues on the Spotlight

Asha Sobhana has assisted RCB in finishing an incredible last-over defense twice this season. She stopped ten runs in the first game versus UP Warriorz. She defended 11 against the Mumbai Indians in the Eliminator. The fact that she was chosen over favorites like Renuka Singh shows how much Smriti Mandhana believes in her. Although Asha is 33 years old, her achievements may make her a candidate for India’s T20 World Cup team in Bangladesh later this year.

Jemimah Rodrigues had improved toward the end of the game after a sluggish beginning. In her last four innings, she has scored 38*, 58, 17, and 69* runs. In contrast to her role as a primarily accumulator in the previous season, Rodrigues now possesses a strong power game that helps close out innings. Her adaptability offers India a significant advantage in their World Cup preparations.

Pitch and Conditions

There’s going to be a new pitch used right in the middle. Seamers will have good bounce and carry thanks to Delhi, while spinners will also benefit from the lack of dew. Teams are content to bat first, as RCB demonstrated in the Eliminator, so the toss hasn’t been as important.

RCB Captain Smriti Mandhana

“We were just thinking we’re only two seasons into this, so let’s not take too much stress about what has happened over the last 15 years or correlating with similarities [to the men’s team].”

Delhi Captain Meg Lanning

“Having a 40-meter border on one side is a problem. One thing about being a captain that I haven’t always loved is that. The game has so much more force and strength now that it’s quite easy for people to get past the ropes.”
Meg Lanning, captain of the Capitals, wants equal-sized boundary.
