Rodrigues also praised the team for collaborative efforts stating, “It’s an entire team’s effort. Shikha di (Shikha Pandey) bowling in the 16th over was the turning point. That set the tone against two greatest hitters of women cricket, Richa (Ghosh) and Sophie Devine. Meg (Lanning) contributed, Alice played a different role, even Aru (Arundhati Reddy) and Radha (Yadav), even JJ (Jess Jonassen) bowling the final over and Shafali getting the run out at the end.”

Shafali Verma’s run out in the last over. She elaborated on her experience stating, “The bowl was coming my way and I throw it. When a bowler runs after hitting, they run slow, so I thought I should throw a bowling hand.” It was exemplary of Shafali’s presence of mind.

With a great win against RCB, Delhi Capitals now stand on the top of the table.
