Talking about the match, Richa fired two sixes in the final over to put RCB on the verge of a famous win. However, the RCB star was run out on the final ball as DC registered a one-run win over Bangalore. Richa scored 51 off 29 balls to keep RCB in the hunt for the 182 target. After hammering two sixes off spinner Jess Jonassen, Richa wasn’t fast enough to upstage the DC star, who removed the bails in a flash to make sure RCB finished behind DC.

“Kappy was saying since I was not looking at the stumps, glad that I did not miss. Put it on the slot and got hit for six, was on the back foot from there. I knew what I had to do, clean hit the second-last ball too,” Jonassen said after the match. DC’s Rodrigues was named the Player of the Match for her brilliant 58-run knock off 36 balls against DC. Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians (MI) have qualified for the business end of the WPL 2024. RCB are placed third with six points from seven matches. RCB are followed by UP Warriorz who also have picked up six points in seven games this season.
