Gujarat Giants skipper Sneh Rana won the toss and elected to bat first against UP Warriorz at Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Rana flicked the coin and Warriorz skipper Alyssa Healy guessed it wrong as Gujarat won one more toss this season. It’s a must-win encounter for Gujarat Giants to stay alive in the race for play-offs, they also have to win the match with a bigger margin to make a chase for themselves.

Gujarat made one change to their XI from the last match as Sabbhineni Meghana sat out to make way for Monica Patel.

Rana stated that there will be no dew on offer in the second innings which was one of the reasons why she elected to bat first.

“We will bat first. It is sunny today and it is a flat track. In place of Meghana, Monica Patel comes in. That is what was in our mind today and we have to win big to make it to the eliminator. But I am proud of the girls. Dew factor is not going to come in this game. So, we will have to be quick on the field as the ball will be travelling quickly,” Rana said at the toss.

Warriorz skipper Healy suggested that the spinners will come to the fore on Monday on Brabourne surface as it will be the third match on the same wicket.

“Not too unhappy and we will get out there and have a bowl, get used to the conditions. This is the third game on this wicket, the spinners might come to the fore today and hopefully we can take a few wickets upfront. No changes from the game we played last time,” Healy said.
