Mumbai Indians to play Delhi Capitals in WPL 2024 opener in Bengaluru

Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals will square off in the curtain-raiser of the 2024 Women’s Premier League (WPL). The high-octane tournament opener is scheduled to be played on February 23 at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

Meg Lanning and Co. would be hoping to get over the disappointment of losing to Mumbai in the finals last year and win the championship, thus their opening match may be the ideal way to start the competition. Given that they are the reigning champions, MI will likely pose a bigger challenge in the opening game.
