The captain and vice-captain are Alyssa Healy and Deepti Sharma respectively. Deepti is a great Indian all-rounder. The team has 6 more all-rounders in the squad. Those are Devika Vaidya, Grace Haris, Parshavi Chopra, S Yashasri, Sophie Ecclestone, and Tahila Mcgrath.
Shweta Sehrawat is the other Batsman accompanying Alyssa in WPL 2023 matches.
In addition, two of the epic bowlers Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Lauren Bell, are with UP Warriorz too.
Therefore, the whole squad seems quite strong.
Here is the team who did win 2 out of 2 matches in WPL 2023. The very first WPL 2023 match was between Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Giants on March 4. The performance of Mumbai Indians was exceptionally well. Batting first, MI did score 207 runs in 20 overs. That too, losing just 5 wickets. On the other hand, the bowling was not less too. The whole team GG was not able to score even 70 runs. They were all out at mere 64 runs.

Match Prediction of UP Warriorz vs Mumbai Indians
As we have gone through both teams line up. In addition, we are well aware of their performance so far in the WPL 2023. Clearly, in UPW vs MI, the latter team has more of an edge. As in both of the matches they did play so far, they were precisely on their side from the very start.
In fact, both bowlers and batters did perform exceptionally too. Opening Batters of Mumbai Indian Yastika Bhatia and Hayley Matthews, are the 2 pillars of Mumbai Indian success so far this very 1st season with Harmanpreet Kaur’s captaincy and sending Natalie Sciver Brunt in 3rd for batting and pressurizing the opponent’s bowlers.
Whereas, UPW did lose from Delhi capital with a huge difference. UP Warriorz has 4 points from 3 games. They have the ability to win the game vs Mumbai Indians. It’s on Alyssa Healy how she gonna use her team against the team with a 100% win record.
UP Warriorz is comparatively weaker and they lost against Delhi Capitals by 42 runs. If they want to win, they have to pressurize Mumbai Indian opening batters.
However, as per our prediction, Mumbai Indians will continue with the 100% win record this WPL.
The predictions in cricket can never be accurate. All we can do is guess. Though, we can calculate the data. But never forget, cricket often changes the result at the very last ball too.
However, it seems as per current stats, that MI might be winning. As they do have all players in great form currently.
Still, nothing can be said with 100% assurance. But, one thing we are sure of is the ultimate fun you are going to have in the UP Warriorz vs Mumbai Indians match. So, cheer for your favorite team. And, Good luck. Of course, the best team will win.
