Commentary

5:42 PM IST Right then, that is it from this game. Gujarat are up and running this season while Bangalore will need to come back stronger in their upcoming fixture. Next up in the Women's T20 League is a crucial encounter between UP and Mumbai. That game will be played on 7th March, Thursday at 7.30 pm IST (2 pm GMT), but as you know, you can always join us early for all the build-up to the match. Until then, cheers and goodbye.
5:40 PM IST Beth Mooney, the victorious skipper of Gujarat is also the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for her amazing knock. She says that it was a bit too close for her liking but is happy with the win. Adds that everyone responded well and she knows that there were a few eyebrows raised when they chose to bat first. Praises Laura Wolvaardt for her knock but reckons they could have got 10-15 runs more. Mentions that they tried to be conventional and keep it simple and it was amazing to see her opening partner bat. Says that she is happy that she could contribute towards the success of the team. Further adds that they bowled well in the Powerplay with Ashleigh Gardner leading from the front and there will be  a hard
5:33 PM IST Smriti Mandhana, the captain of Bangalore says that she had a chat with the players and she knows that they didn't have the best start. But she reckons that 200 was chasable but they failed to build any decent partnerships. She praises the opposition, the way they started, and had a good total on the board to pile the pressure on her team. Ends up praising Georgia Wareham for the way she batted and she also states that her knock helped them to get closer to the target.
5:30 PM IST Presentation Tme...
5:29 PM IST Ashleigh Gardner is up for a quick chat. She says that she is really happy to get their first win. She continues that they were waiting for it for five games and there's a lot of excitement in the group. Also says that it was their best powerplay. States that they knew that they had to score 200 and defend it to win against a strong team like Bangalore. Ends up saying that they gained a lot of confidence after the game and they are ready to face Mumbai.
5:29 PM IST Earlier in the game, Gujarat posted the highest total of this season courtesy of two brilliant knocks from Laura Wolvaardt and skipper Beth Mooney of 76 and 85 respectively. Sophie Molineux and Georgia Wareham chipped in with one wicket each while the other was in the form of run outs. While chasing, Smriti Mandhana did give them a quick start but it was a struggle after her wicket. There were a couple of positives, including a notable cameo from Wareham in the end but it was Gujarat who sealed their first win of the season.
5:27 PM IST Gujarat, on the other hand, were looking to make early inroads and they did exactly that through the experienced Aussie Ashleigh Gardner got the big wicket of Smriti Mandhana while a lovely piece of fielding from Laura Wolvaardt sent Sabbhineni Meghana back. They let the opposition build a little partnership but Tanuja broke that and got the momentum back in their side. However, they did take a beating in the death overs but Kathryn Bryce and Ash stepped up to send Ellyse Perry and Richa Ghosh back respectively to push Bangalore further on the back foot. The 16-year-old debutant, Shabnam Shakil also was pretty economical and looks like one for the future. Georgia Wareham did give them a scare in the end but they had enough runs in their kitty and got over the line.
5:26 PM IST Bangalore got off to a decent start with Smriti Mandhana playing a few lusty blows, but couldn't hang around for much longer which was a big blow for them. A slight mix-up in the middle cost Sabbhineni Meghana her wicket. It was Ellyse Perry and Sophie Devine who had to take responsibility after that. They steadied the ship for a bit, but the latter lost her wicket trying to up the ante, while the Aussie also followed suit. After that, Richa Ghosh took matters into her own hands and started going after the bowlers, while Georgia Wareham also supported well. They kept them in the game but the wicket of Ghosh in the 17th over took the sting out of them. Wareham did play a few more lusty blows and smashed 48 off just 22 balls but that was not going to be enough as they fell short by 19 runs in the end.
5:21 PM IST GUJARAT FINALLY OPENS THEIR ACCOUNT! They do it in some style as well getting a comprehensive win over Bangalore.  Beth Mooney at the toss took a bit of a risk batting first, but it turned out to be the correct decision. The skipper led from the front while Laura Wolvaardt played her part effectively as well. Bangalore though, will feel that this was still chasable, but none of their batter could play that big knock which proved to be the downfall for them.

Meghna Singh to Sabbhineni Meghana, 1 run

OUT! RUN OUT! Not something Bangalore wanted! This one is back of a length around off. Sabbhineni Meghana cuts it towards deep extra cover and calls for a double but takes a pause after turning for the second run. Laura Wolvaardt in the deep pounces on the ball quickly and fires in an accurate throw at the batter's end. Beth Mooney does the job of plucking the bails off the stump with Meghana struggling to get back. The replay confirms that it is Out. Sabbhineni Meghana has to depart now!

Ashleigh Gardner to Smriti Mandhana, no run

OUT! LBW! Ashleigh Gardner gets the big fish! That's the breakthrough that Gujarat needed and the opposition skipper walks back now. This one is flatter, short and on middle, does not bounce that much, Smriti Mandhana moves back to pull it away but it goes under the bat and hits her on the pads. There is a huge appeal for LBW, and up goes the finger. However, the Bangalore skipper takes the review. UltraEdge confirms no bat involved and Ball Tracking shows three reds. Mandhana has to walk back after a quick little cameo and Bangalore lose their first wicket.
