Alyssa Healy (123 innings, 2489 runs, SR: 126.92)

Alyssa Healy is one of the top openers in the women’s game, having scored 2489 runs and appearing in many Women’s ICC events. She has a T20I career strike rate of 126.92, which will serve her well. Despite not scoring many runs in the last game, Healy can be counted on to contribute to your DEL-W vs UP-W Dream11 prediction squad.

Top Batter Pick

Meg Lanning (72 off 43) in the previous match)

Meg Lanning got off to a fast start in the WPL, scoring 72 runs off 43 balls. The Aussie hitter is one of the best in the game and can score huge runs at the top of the order. Lanning is an excellent choice for your DEL-W versus UP-W Dream11 prediction squad, given her expertise and recent form.

Top All-rounder Pick

Deepti Sharma (2/27 in the previous match)

Deepti Sharma bowled well against the Gujarat Giants, taking up two wickets and surrendering only 27 runs in four overs. Deepti’s bowling abilities have been complemented with a more prominent position with the bat, which has served her well. Deepti should be a must-have in your DEL-W vs UP-W Dream11 prediction squad given the conditions.

Top Bowler Pick

Shikha Pandey (1/35 in the previous match)

Shikha Pandey demonstrated her talent in the previous game, taking one wicket against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Shikha is an excellent swing bowler who is recognised for taking up wickets during the powerplay session.

Top captain

Marizanne Kapp

Marizanne Kapp demonstrated her batting power in the last game, scoring 39 runs on just 17 balls. Although Kapp’s batting talent serves her well, her bowling ability shines through in her performances. Kapp is an excellent pick as captain or vice-captain in your DEL-W versus UP-W Dream11 prediction squad, as she is likely to have a significant say with both the bat and the ball.

Top vice-captain

Sophie Ecclestone

Sophie Ecclestone is one of the best bowlers in the world, having a T20I bowling strike rate of 15.80.
