Tahlia McGrath was the standout performer for UP, scoring a blistering 58 off just 32 balls with the help of 8 fours and 2 sixes. Alyssa Healy also made a valuable contribution with a knock of 36 off 34 balls, including 4 fours and 1 six. However, the Delhi bowlers, led by Alice Capsey who took 3 wickets, managed to keep the UP batting lineup in check and prevented them from posting a more challenging target.

In response, Delhi got off to a good start with captain Meg Lanning leading from the front, making 39 off 23 balls with 5 fours and 2 sixes. Despite losing a few quick wickets in the middle overs, Marizanne Kapp's unbeaten 34 off 31 balls guided Delhi to a comfortable victory.

With this win, Delhi finished at the top of the WTL table and have automatically qualified for the final of the tournament. Their clinical performance in this match, both with the ball and the bat, will give them confidence heading into the final.

It was a disappointing result for UP, who will now have to wait and see if they can secure a place in the final by winning their next match. However, they can take some positives from McGrath and Healy's impressive performances with the bat.

Overall, it was an exciting match with some excellent cricket on display from both sides. Delhi will be looking to carry this momentum into the final and claim the WTL title, while UP will be determined to bounce back and keep their hopes of reaching the final alive.
