Commentary

5:44 PM IST Right then, that's it from the coverage of this game. The Women's T20 League will return on 11th March. In this game, Gujarat will be locking horns against UP. The first ball will be at 7.30 pm IST (2pm GMT) but as you all know, you can join us early for the build-up. Until then, take care and goodbye.
5:41 PM IST Jemimah Rodrigues wins the Player of the Match award for her brilliant half-century. Firstly she is happy they have two days to recover from this victory. Mentions the talk during the strategic break was only to focus and continue bowling well and take the game deep. Felt more experienced in this game as they have been some part of last-over thrillers plenty of time. She just focused on taking effective runs, but feels it was a team effort which helped them to get over the line. Praises Richa Ghosh for her knock but adds that she feels for her.
5:41 PM IST Meg Lanning, the skipper of Delhi, says that that was really stressful. She adds that she always tries to stay calm and that is really important. She says that they had set a good target and just needed to bowl well. Mentions that the batting lineup was changed according to the situation and ends by saying that she is happy with the win.
5:41 PM IST Stay tuned for the presentations...
5:32 PM IST Jess Jonassen, the bowler who held her nerves in the final over is in for a quick word. She says that she had her plans clear for the last over and it worked well. Adds that after the six on the second last ball, they had it decided on which line to bowl. Adds that Meg Lanning is a great captain, as she keeps her cool and tries to calm everyone. Says that it was very hard for them and it feels good to be on the winning side. Ends by saying that its a team sport and they will aim for the silverware.
5:31 PM IST Smriti Mandhana, the captain of Bangalore is in for a chat. She says that it is a tough loss to take. Adds that Richa Ghosh played excellent and it was just amazing to see her play. She mentions that he had a niggle so it was tough for her. She adds that she would have loved to play better but it just wasn't her day. She says that Richa is a quality player and ends by saying that they played good cricket.
5:24 PM IST Delhi lost the very first match of this campaign on the very last delivery to Mumbai and now, they have managed to defend 1 run off the final delivery. That is certainly an improvement. What a performance it was though with the ball in hand. It was Alice Capsey who drew the first blood, but then there was a phase when the bowlers just could not trouble the batters. Nevertheless, Ellyse Perry and Sophie Molineux were struggling with their communication and that eventually came to benefit Delhi as the second-wicket stand was broken through a run-out. Soon, Arundhati Reddy got rid of Sophie Molineux who was looking set. Then there was a moment when Bangalore conceded 17 runs in the 15th over which brought them back in the game. After that though, it was some great bowling showcased by Shikha Pandey, Marizanne Kapp and Jess Jonassen to make sure that it is Delhi that takes two crucial points away. Four bowlers chipped in with a wicket each to get across the line by the barest of margins.
5:23 PM IST Bangalore did a brilliant job early on with the ball in hand to restrict Delhi to just 181 on this batting paradise. Bangalore came in with the right intent, and a new gameplan. It was a new opening pair for them, which started off pretty nicely, although their skipper could not stick out there for long. Sophie Molineux though got off to a positive start. She continued to get boundaries at regular intervals, although she got this motivation after seeing the way Ellyse Perry got going at number 3. These two repaired the innings for their side, but they both fell in quick succession and allowed Delhi to come back in the game. Richa Ghosh though held her nerve really well, but she could not take them home.
5:18 PM IST OH MY GOSH! Richa Ghosh, you did everything in your power to take you side home, but from the outside prespective, this Women's Indian T20 League continues to reach new heights, but for now it is Delhi that are on the peak. Richa Ghosh seems to be in tears, but a good gesture by Jemimah Rodrigues and then Shikha Pandey who brings out a warm hug, for a fair fight. Delhi have cemented their spot in the top three.

She has been aggressive throughout the campaign, but finds an able partner alongside her as well. Will this tweak in the batting order be enough for Bangalore to get over the line? We shall wait and find out. Delhi need wickets and that too in cluster, if they are to apply any pressure here.

Perry is toying around against their ace bowler, in Marizanne Kapp who has gone for 18 runs in her three overs already. Bangalore need this partnership to continue in a similar fashion and try to cause an upset here.
