Shafali Verma falls to the first delivery bowled by Schutt. This is a significant breakthrough for RCB. Schutt delivered a big inswinger on a fuller length, starting from outside off and coming back in. Shafali Verma attempted a flick but missed the ball, and the leg-stump was knocked down. RCB erupted in joy.
Earlier, In the Women’s Premier League match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday, Delhi Capitals’ captain Meg Lanning won the toss and elected to bowl first. RCB, who had lost their last four matches, made three changes to their team by including Megan Schutt, Preeti Bose, and Disha Kasat.
Meanwhile, DC replaced Laura Harris and Minnu Mani with Alice Capsey and Arundhati Reddy. In their previous encounter at the Brabourne Stadium, DC had beaten RCB by 60 runs.
RCB received a significant boost, thanks to the unbeaten 67 runs contributed by Perry. Shikha Pandey dropped her at 29, which turned out to be costly for Delhi as Perry capitalized on the opportunity. Richa Ghosh also played an excellent cameo, scoring 37 runs from 16 balls, and together with Perry, they added 74 runs quickly.
The partnership came in handy for RCB, who lost Smriti and Devine early, and the pitch’s slowness forced Perry to play the anchor role. However, Ghosh’s contribution changed the momentum. Nevertheless, RCB’s total appears to be 10-15 runs short against a formidable Delhi lineup.
