That's it from this game as we saw a one-sided contest in the WPL with UP Warriorz thrashing RCB with a special knock from Alyssa Healy. Do join us for another WPL game tomorrow and stick around for more cricketing actions across the globe in our network across formats. For now, this is Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Akshay Bhide alongside scorer.analyst Zeeshan Naiyer. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and Cheers!  
Alyssa Healy (UP Warriorz Captain): "Yes got there at the end. No, I was really pleased with our bowlers. We thought we will keep them below 200. But to keep them under 140 was great and it made our job easier. Spin to win was the way to go and Anjali did well on that pitch as well. Shweta is a kid and Devika cashed in on the opportunity and took the pressure off me. I was great. 

I am not too sure. If I knew the answer, I would tell you. We wanted to have fun and we wanted to finish off early for Net Run Rate. It came off for us. Sometimes it won't come off. We are glad it did come off for us. It was easy, but credit to our bowlers a lot."
   
Player of the Match: Alyssa Healy
Powerful Striker of the Match: Sophie Devine
Sophie Ecclestone (UP Warriorz Women): "Healy showed how great she is at the top of the order. Devi also stepped up tonight. I love getting wickets. I got my pace right on the ball and it helped me. I bowled quicker and it has worked for me tonight. It is just about having the overseas players and them stepping up. It was great to get together and celebrate Women's day as we all come from different backgrounds."
Smriti Mandhana (Royal Challengers Bangalore Women Captain): "I think it's been happening in the last four games. We start well and lose a cluster of wickets. I take the blame because I have to step up and score runs at the top of the order to give the bowlers some chance.

Before this match, we spoke of scoring seven and eight runs in the middle overs and not going big. But it didn't work tonight. No injuries but the last three games didn't go our way. We are trying to get a balanced team. So we will see how it goes in the coming games.

I have tried to speak to almost all the players. We have to keep doing it as the last week has been tough for the team. We need to go back and try to improve.

I should admit that the last week has been tough. A lot of people have reached out to me. But as international players, we have to go through this. I have my family alongside me and have to move ahead." 
10:16 PM IST: A convincing win for UP Warriorz Women as they thrash the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women by 10 wickets with 7 overs to spare. This is as one-sided a match one can get and it has been led by their skipper Alyssa Healy who roared back to form with an unbeaten 96* off 47 balls.  

Chasing a paltry 139 for the win, UP Warriorz came out all guns blazing and made their intentions clear. Devika Vaidya was promoted up the order and gave good account of herself with 36* off 31 balls. She was the aggressor for the first couple of overs before Healy took charge. The skipper remained unbeaten on a fabulous 96* off 47 balls. No other batter was required as the chase was completed in 13 overs. RCB's woes just keep on pounding. 

Nothing much to talk about for RCB Women bowlers as they looked pedestrian to say the least. None of them looked threatening as Healy was just too good for them. 

Earlier in the game, RCB Women lost skipper Smriti Mandhana for 4. Thereafter, there was a nice partnership between Sophie Devine and Ellyse Perry. Devine looked 36 off 24 balls while Perry scored 52 off 39 balls. Other than these two, the others around them failed and lost the plot. Shreyanka Patil and Erin Burns got to double figures but they collapsed to be bowled out for 138 in 19.3 overs. 

The spinners of UP Warriorz were unstoppable to say the least as they shared all the wickets. The Number One bowler Sophie Ecclestone picked up 4 wickets for 13 runs in 3.3 overs. Deepti Sharma picked up 3 wickets for 26 runs in 4 overs. Rajeshwari Gayakwad got the other wicket while there were 2 run outs as well. It was a dream come true for UP Warriorz and the worst nightmare for RCB. 

So, a win by 10 wickets for UP Warriorz Women as they get their second win in the tournament. RCB remains winless and are rooted at the bottom of the points table. Stick around for the post match presentations that shall come your way soon.

12.6 S Patil to A Healy
1 Tossed up on the stumps, Healy dances down the track and looks to hit it over the long on fence but miscues it as she gets it off the inside half of the bat towards deep mid wicket. The batters take the single and Healy remains unbeaten on 96. A comprehensive performance from the UP Warriorz as they beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women by 10 wickets.
Just like that the scores are level now. 
12.5 S Patil to A Healy
4 FOUR!!!! Can Healy get to her 100? She requires 5 and the Warriorz require 1 to win the game. A low full toss around leg, Healy changes her grip and reverse sweeps it in the gap in the off side for a boundary. No need to run for those.
12.4 S Patil to D Vaidya
1 Turning away outside off, Vaidya drives it to the sweeper in the off side for a single.
12.3 S Patil to D Vaidya
4 FOUR!!!! Excellent placement from Vaidya. Quicker delivery outside off, Vaidya hangs back and guides it nicely in the gap between point and short third for a boundary.
12.2 S Patil to A Healy
1 Flighted delivery on off, Healy dances down the track and lifts it straight and Knight from long off runs to her right and stops it.
12.1 S Patil to D Vaidya
1 Tossed up on the stumps, Vaidya steps out and chips it towards long off for a single.
Akshay: UP Warriorz require 12 runs to win and Healy requires 10 to get to her century. Will she be able to get to the milestone? Only time will tell. Technically, she requires only two balls.
