WPL Final

Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday won by 8 wickets against the Delhi Capitals in the Women’s Premier League final.

DC went off to a good start as it posted 64 runs for no loss in 43 balls on the scoreboard but following which they committed hara-kiri and lost all 10 wickets for just 49 runs in the tournament.

In Australia’s left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux (3/20) eighth over, DC’s downfall started as the player of DC tumbled like a deck of cards. She picked three wickets in her over.

Afterwards, the hosts struggled to recover, consistently losing wickets due to loose shots and the effective off-spin bowling of Shreyanka Patil (4/12) in the middle and late overs.

Choosing to bat first, DC captain Meg Lanning (23 off 23) and Shafali Verma (44 off 27) showcased a contrasting partnership as they steadily increased the scoring rate.

Lanning, the tournament’s second highest run-scorer, played a supporting role while Shafali aggressively accelerated after a slow start in the initial 11 deliveries.
