Radha Yadav takes a sensational catch! The ball was hit powerfully towards long-on, but she ran forward and dived low to grab it just inches from the ground. Deepti Sharma departs after hitting the full delivery outside off towards long-on.
Although it was a good hit, she couldn’t get the elevation and ended up giving a chance to the fielder, who made no mistake in taking the catch.
Earlier, UP Warriorz have won the toss and elected to field first. They have made a bold decision to exclude the player of the match from their previous game and include Shabnim Ismail in the playing XI due to the presence of some greenery on the pitch.
Delhi Capitals have displayed their batting prowess yet again in the competition, scoring 223 in their first game and 211 in today’s match. Lanning and Shafali provided a solid start, putting up a 60+ partnership within the powerplay. The skipper continued her good form, scoring another 70, while Capsey and Jonassen kept the boundaries coming.
Rodrigues played her role perfectly and was unbeaten in a 67-run partnership with Jonassen who played a blinder towards the end. UP Warriorz misjudged the pitch and delayed the introduction of Deepti and Ecclestone, allowing DC to get off to a strong start.
