The Women's Premier League 2023 enters its most crucial share, and the 16th game will see the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women take on the Gujarat Giants. The Gujarat Giants defeated Delhi Capitals Women in the last game, and they must win this one to get close to the playoffs. The Royal Challengers Bangalore Women defeated the UP Warriorz in the last game and shall look to continue with this momentum.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Women have struggled and won just once in six games. They lost the earlier game against Gujarat Giants and must come up with a better show in this contest. The Giants have had their issues with consistency, and it will be interesting to see which side comes out winning this game.
Smriti Mandhana's side finally had something to cheer about. They defeated the UP Warriorz by 5 wickets in the last game, their first victory after five consecutive defeats. The team is already out of contention for the playoffs, and Mandhana would like to see a good show
Sophie Devine has to play a key role at the top and set up a partnership with skipper Mandhana, who hasn't been in great form. The middle order has been inconsistent, and the side would like to see partnerships between Ellyse Perry, Kanika Ahuja, and Heather Knight. Richa Ghosh is a good finisher, and she must add quick runs with Shreyanka Patil and Disha Kasat.
Megan Schutt and Sophie Devine bowled well in the last game, and the team will need tight spells from them in this contest. Ellyse Perry brings a lot of experience to this attack, and her performance will be crucial. Renuka Singh, Asha Shobana, and Patil must bowl consistent lines in the middle overs, as this has been one of the problems for the side.

Sneh Rana would be pleased with the performance of her players in the last game. Against the odds, they defeated a stronger Delhi Capitals Women by 111 runs. This win has kept their hopes alive for a berth in the next round. Rana would like her side to win this game by a big margin and move up on the points table.
Laura Wolvaardt batted well in the last game and would like to set up a big opening wicket stand with Sophia Dunkley. Harleen Deol is doing well in the middle order, and she must build partnerships with Ashleigh Gardner and Dayalan Hemalatha. Sushma Verma, Sneh Rana, and Kim Gareth strengthen the side's batting.
Kim Gareth has been in good form, and the side will need breakthroughs from her and Tanuja Kanwar with the new ball. Ashleigh Gardner and Rana must use their experience in the middle overs. The side will expect good spells in the supporting role from Mansi Joshi and Harleen Deol.

There will be clear skies in Mumbai on March 18. The wicket has been hard on the bowlers, and the flat surface and fast outfield have allowed batters to score runs easily. To feel safe, the side batting first in this game would look for a score near the 180-run mark.
Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai, is a good surface to bat where the ball comes onto the bat nicely. We have seen big scores at this venue in the past. Fast bowlers don't find surface assistance and must rely on their variations. Spinners have had a good record as the ball tends to grip the surface and stop on the batsmen.
Bowl first and chase the score have been the mantra for most sides this season. The wickets have been good, and sides have fancied their chances while chasing scores. Hence, we see the side winning the toss here opt for bowling first.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Women have been down and out in most games. Inconsistency with the bat has hurt the side, and they will need a good show from the top and the middle order to win here. The Gujarat Giants have been marginally better and have their bowlers in good form. It will make them favorites in this game.
