GG skipper Sneh Rana said at the toss, "We would like to bat first on a fresh wicket. We have two changes, Laura and Georgia are in. It is amazing for us that Laura has joined us, we are excited. It is just the team combination for the particular day. Everything is settled, and everyone is in a good shape."
DC skipper Meg Lanning also said at the toss, "The wicket looks pretty similar, hopefully it plays well. We are going in with the smart option, Laura Harris comes in. It is hard to get the combination right, right from the beginning of the tournament. Our batters have been okay, we need to work on that. Hopefully, I can start well."
