WPL 2023: Twitter Reacts Immensely As RCB Get Its First Win Of The Tournament

The Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) wait is now over as they thump down their WPL 2023 campaign with a resounding victory over the UP Warriorz. Smriti Mandhana-led side won the fixture for the first time thanks to a spirited chase by Kanika Ahuja and Richa Ghosh.

As Sophie Devine left the field in the chase’s exciting opening over, RCB’s modest total chase got off to a shaky start. After being knocked for a three-ball duck by Deepti Sharma in the very next over, Smriti Mandhana’s batting ordeal continued.

During their brief stand for the third wicket, Ellyse Perry and Heather Knight helped to steady the ship. But Bangalore seemed to be in a pickle after their swift series of departures. Kanika Ahuja, the 20-year-old who anchored the chase for her side with complete nonchalance, emerged as the new star for RCB.

Another young talent, Richa Ghosh, bravely complemented the southpaw in the middle. Richa masterfully steered and directed the chase from the other end, leading her team to their first victory of the competition even though Kanika came just four short of a spectacular half-century.

In the post-match presentation, Mandhana said, “Yeah, it was tense. We lost a couple of wickets in the 7th over; it was a bit nervous. But the way Kanika and Richa played was brilliant. Kanika in particular, really proud of her. Really excited to see her bat, the approach she has.”

“She is a 360-degree player, who isn’t the most common in Indian cricket. Really impressed with her and the belief she has. Even when we have not been in great positions, the crowd keep chanting for us. Really happy for this loyal support base, not a lot of teams will have supporters turn up in such high numbers after losing five games,” she added.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the first win of RCB in the season today:
