WPL 2023: UP Warriors are set to begin their Women’s Premier League 2023 campaign against Gujarat Giants on March 5 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. The UP franchise were smart during the WPL 2023 Auction as they roped in the likes of Kiran Nagvire, Lauren Bell, and Rajeshwari Gayakwad at an affordable price tag. UP Warriors have a well-balanced squad with lots of depth in it. They pulled the trigger for Deepti Sharma, Tahila McGrath, and England’s Sophie Ecclestone and the squad looks like a good mixture of youth and experience on paper.
Out of the many stars in the team, Alyssa Healy will also be one of the players to watch out for in the WPL 2023. She is a destructive batter known for her fluent stroke play in international cricket. Along with her, India women’s cricketer Deepti Sharma will also be a player to look out for from this squad as she was bought by the franchise for Rs 2.6 crore at the auction.
