About yesterday's match

In the chase of 114, RCB put on a 49-run opening stand, powered by Sophie Devine (32 in 27 balls, with five fours and a six). However, RCB was tested by Delhi bowlers in middle overs and skipper Smriti Mandhana (31 in 39 balls, with three fours) departed at a crucial juncture to leave RCB at 82/2 in 15 overs. However, Ellyse Perry (35* in 37 balls, with four boundaries) and Richa Ghosh (17* in 14 balls, with two fours) finished the chase with three balls left. Minnu Mani and Shikha Pandey took a wicket each for DC. After clinching the maiden WPL title, team's off-spinner Shreyanka Patil said, “It was amazing to get in touch with everyone and we had amazing team bonding sessions, some drama, some dance and some laughter. They keep saying "Ee Sala Cup Namde" and we got it. That's it guys, it is for the fans." Skipper Smriti Mandhana also said that a poor performance in the inaugural season taught her and the team a lot and thanked the team management and fans for continuously backing and supporting her.
