In the opening phase, Delhi Capitals showcased a strong beginning against the spinners of the Royal Challengers Bangalore, amassing 64 runs without conceding any wickets in a mere 43 balls. Yet, their momentum drastically faltered as they experienced an abrupt downturn, losing all their wickets for a meager 49 runs. By the midpoint of their innings, with the score at 72 for 3, Delhi Capitals’ pivotal player, Meg Lanning, aiming to rejuvenate their prospects, was adjudged leg before wicket, courtesy of Shreyanka’s delivery. This sequence of events ultimately led to Delhi Capitals being bundled out for 113 runs.

Significant performances were delivered by Smriti Mandhana (31), Sophie Devine (32), and Ellyse Perry (35 not out) for RCB. This victory marked a pivotal moment for the team, which had reached the final on three previous occasions in 2009, 2011, and 2016.
