WPL 2023 Fantasy team suggested for the previous game

I have three players from this game in my team and will make three regular and one uncapped transfer.

Transfer Deadline: 07:30 pm IST; Saturday (March 18)

Note: The suggested team is subject to change depending on the toss or other unexpected team news. Any such changes will be updated for the next match day.


Transfers Made: 3. | Transfers Remaining: 9

1) Nat Sciver-Brunt (MI) (ALL) (10 Credits) – OUT | Ashleigh Gardner (GG) (ALL) (10.5 Credits) – IN

2) Hayley Matthews (MI) (ALL) (9 Credits) – OUT | Ellyse Perry (ALL) (RCB) (10 Credits) – IN

3) Shafali Verma (BAT) (DC) (9 Credits) – OUT | Smriti Mandhana (BAT) (RCB) (10.5 Credits) – IN

4) Saika Ishaque (BOWL) (MI) (6 Credits) – OUT | Shreyanka Patil (BOWL) (RCB) (5.5 Credits) – IN. (Uncapped Transfer)

With Gujarat Giants playing back-to-back games, I may have to load up a bit more on their players, but for now, I’m sticking with the following transfers. With my overseas player restriction, I can afford only one overseas star from GG, and that has to be Ash Gardner, with Ellyse Perry a must-have from RCB.

I’m backing Smriti Mandhana to finally come good this season and am drafting her in place of Shafali Verma. While I will most certainly not captain her, I’m hoping the RCB captain to deliver in this fixture.

As for the uncapped transfer, it was a toss-up between the POTM winner from the previous game, Kanika Ahuja, and Shreyanka Patil. I’ve gone for the latter, as she gets more overs with the ball.

Best WPL 2023 fantasy team for Match 16 – RCB vs GG

Players playing in Match 16: Harleen Deol (BAT) (GG) (8 Credits), Ashleigh Gardner (GG) (ALL) (10.5 Credits), Smriti Mandhana (BAT) (RCB) (10.5 Credits), Shreyanka Patil (BOWL) (RCB) (5.5 Credits), Ellyse Perry (ALL) (RCB) (10 Credits), Asha Shobana (ALL) (RCB) (5.5 Credits), and Tanuja Kanwar (BOWL) (GG) (6 Credits)

While I do have seven players from this game, I’m only really considering Ashleigh Gardner and Ellyse Perry as serious captaincy contenders.

In case I decide to make another transfer and bring in a Gujarat Giants player in like Kim Garth or Laura Wolvaardt, I will go with Gardner and Perry as my captain and vice-captain respectively.
