That brings an end to our coverage for this game. Keep joining us for more cricketing action all around the globe. For now, this is Akshay Bhide, signing off, on behalf of scorer Raju Khariya. Bye Bye. Good Night.
Marizanne Kapp (Player of the Match): "I feel I always play against them on flat wickets. I thought that you have to bowl on this wicket while bowling. 

I just tried to stay positive and backing myself while batting. I always look to hit straight and into the leg side. I thought I play according to the merit of the ball. The leggie was bowling and I just decided to give her the strike and she pounced on it.

Bowling pace on that wicket, it was easy to hit through the line. It was important for me to bowl off-pace deliveries or either go full under the bat. The body is going good."
Player of the Match: Marizanne Kapp
Meg Lanning (DelhI Capitals Women Skipper): "That was a reasonable wicket and the outfield is very quick. You come to the ground expecting a high-scoring game and you just have to back your bowlers.

We did an excellent job with the bat in hand to keep the momentum going. Capsey and Shafali played well and Kapp and JJ played good cameos in the end. The right-hand and left-hand combination worked wonders for us.

Play according to the strengths. If you back your strengths, you will get the results. You have to stay calm while defending here. Just hanging in there. Sometimes, you will go on a journey but if you stick enough to your strengths, you will get the results.

Both Sutherland and Jonassen have got a good amount of experience. JJ came in and showed what she can do in pressure situations with both bat and ball."
Sintex Sixes of the Match: Shafali Verma
Electric Striker of the Match: Jess Jonassen
Smriti Mandhana (Royal Challengers Bangalore Women Skipper): “I think the way we bowled in the first two matches, we didn’t live up today. But that’s okay. One bad game in the tournament and we have to make sure that we come back strongly.

That was the chat in the dressing room after the first innings. We are plus 15 and the wicket was good. If me and Sophie Devine play till 14th over, we will get across the line.

With the way women’s cricket is progressing, I had to put in some work to play in the leg side and I was eyeing the short boundary in the leg side.

In terms of bowling, I won’t be too critical. We didn’t field the way we would have hoped for. With the crowd, it’s hard to get everyone’s attention. As a captain, you have to be really quick."
10:50 PM IST, Local Time: That's it. The Delhi Capitals carry forward the winning momentum beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 25 runs. It was a high-scoring affair here in Bengaluru and the DC Women hold their nerves to emerge victorious to hand the RCB Women their first loss in the WPL 2024. All smiles in the DC camp as they have certainly silenced the Bengaluru crowd here.

Chasing 195, the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women got off to a flying start. Skipper Smriti Mandhana started the onslaught and made full use of the fielding restrictions as she along with Sophie Devine put 52 at the end of the powerplay. Devine joined in the party after the powerplay. Mandhana brought up her maiden WPL fifty off 32 balls. Finally, the DC Women managed to break the 77-run opening stand as Devine fell on 23.

Mandhana continued going strong from one end. She scored 74 off 43 balls before getting cleaned up in the 13th over. Richa scored 19 off 13 balls before falling. After that, the RCB Women lost their way. Their batters failed to get going and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Meghana departed after a scratchy 31-ball 36 and the others registered single-digit scores as they finished their innings on 169/9 to lose the game by 25 runs.

Jess Jonassen bowled brilliantly for the DC Women. She picked up three wickets and conceded only 21 runs in her four overs. Marizanne Kapp and Arundhati Reddy also chipped in with a couple of scalps each as it helped them defend the total successfully and go to the top of the table.

Earlier, the Delhi Capitals Women were asked to bat first. They lost their skipper Meg Lanning cheaply on 11 inside the powerplay. Shafali Verma went berserk at the top of the order and was joined by Alice Capsey as they continued an onslaught in the middle overs. They put 82 between them for the second wicket before Verma fell right after getting to her fifty.

The RCB Women pulled back things by dismissing Jemimah Rodrigues (0) and Capsey (46) in quick succession. However, Marizanne Kapp and Jess Jonassen provided the perfect finish for the Capitals Women. Kapp (32 off 16 balls) and Jonassen (36* off 16 balls) played outstanding cameos to power their side to 194/5. Sophie Devine and debutant Nadine de Klerk picked up two wickets each but the hosts went on a journey with the ball in hand. It was too much to do for them as they fell short by 25 runs later in the night.

0 Tossed up on the pads, Patil goes for a reverse sweep but misses. She wears it on the outside half of the front pad and a half-hearted appeal from JJ but turned down by the umpire. With that, it's the end of this fixture and the Delhi Capitals Women beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore Women by 25 runs.
