Sabbineni Meghana slams maiden WPL fifty during her Royal Challengers Bangalore debut, against UP Warriorz

Her highest run till date was 31 off 32 balls against RCB last season in WPL

Sabbineni Meghana led RCB’s onslaught with a gritty fifty on her debut as Royal Challengers Bangalore faces UP Warriorz in the WPL 2024 game. The aggressive right-handed batter took 40 balls to hit her maiden half century slamming seven boundaries and one six.

Royal Challengers Bangalore embarked on their WPL 2024 journey on Saturday, facing UP Warriorz, where Sabbhineni Meghana emerged as a pivotal figure with the bat.

Coming in at no. 3 following Sophie Devine’s dismissal, the Indian batter delivered a stellar performance, showcasing her prowess at the crease. Meghana exhibited impeccable stroke play, standing out amidst a formidable UP Warriorz bowling attack.

Sabbineni Meghana scores her maiden WPL fifty:

In a remarkable debut for RCB, Meghana notched up her maiden half-century in the WPL, elevating her team’s prospects. Hailing from Andhra Pradesh’s Krishna district, Meghana has already left an indelible mark on Indian cricket, representing the nation in both T20 and ODI formats. Renowned for her right-handed top-order batting, Meghana commands a WPL salary of Rs 30 lakhs.

Despite a lackluster performance in WPL 2023 with Gujarat Giants, where she managed just 81 runs across six matches before being released, Meghana’s transition to RCB has proven fruitful. Demonstrating significant improvement, she achieved her highest WPL score and secured her maiden half-century in the league.

Meghana’s innings of 53 runs played a crucial role in steering RCB towards victory from a precarious position, underscoring her resilience and determination on the field.
