How did the match between Delhi and Mumbai pan out?

Meg Lanning chose to bowl first after winning the toss, and this proved to be a wise choice. To set the tone, Marizanne Kapp caused the ball to move in the air and scalped a few elite Mumbai batters. Shikha Pandey and Arundhati Reddy, for example, continued the good work by taking wickets. Only Poonam Yadav failed to perform well with the ball for Delhi as Jess Jonassen and Radha Yadav both bowled well.

Mumbai's top three batters were unsuccessful, but captain Harmanpreet Kaur did her hardest to get a few runs. Issy Wong, Pooja Vastrakar, and Amanjot Kaur all contributed with useful hits to help Mumbai reach the 100-run threshold.

Pooja Vastrakar, who got the most runs for MI with a knock of 26 off 19 balls that included three fours and a six, set a goal of 110 runs. Shikha Pandey, Marizanne Kapp, and Jess Jonassen each claimed two wickets in the meantime.

With nine overs left in their target of 110 runs, Delhi had reached 110/1 thanks to Alice Capsey's undefeated innings of 38 runs off just 17 balls. Meg Lanning continued to stay unbeaten on 32 while a quick-fire 33 was also scored by the young Shafali Verma.Hayley Matthews grabbed a wicket of Shafali for Mumbai in the powerplay as a consolation.
