Former Indian opener, Aakash Chopra has come up with a harsh remark on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)’s woes in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) ahead of their forthcoming clash against UP Warriorz. The two sides are scheduled to lock horns with each other on Wednesday, March 15 at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai.
Despite the star-studded line-up, Smriti Mandhana’s RCB has failed to register a single win in their five outings thus far. Their miseries on the field could see them conclude the season with a wooden spoon assuming the side is unable to turn their fortunes. Former Indian opener, Aakash Chopra made a blunt remark on their campaign and stated that RCB ‘will not’ get a win in the WPL.

In the video on his Youtube channel, Aakash Chopra said, “It is an important game for both sides but I feel RCB will not get a win again. RCB’s problem is that Smriti Mandhana has sent a friend request to form but it has not been accepted. She will have Sophie Ecclestone and Deepti Sharma in front of her but despite that, I feel the friend request will be accepted today.”
RCB sunk to their fifth straight loss after being thoroughly obliterated by Delhi Capitals in their last outing. Notably, a qualification to the Eliminator round could be out of reach and RCB is dependent on various factors to make a place in the top three. However, Aakash believes that the five losses have left a massive dent in their campaign and their season is ‘done’.
Explaining the same, Aakash Chopra said, “Smriti Mandhana’s days are going bad and RCB are having an equally bad time. They have played five matches and have not won even one. For all practical purposes, their tournament is done. They are not going to progress but can spoil someone’s party.”

However, RCB has an outside chance to qualify if the side wins their remaining three matches. Additionally, the top two sides- Mumbai and Delhi win their matches against Gujarat Giants and UP Warriorz. RCB will also need Gujarat to beat UP Warriorz in their clash to make a place in the top three.
