Says that she has been delighted with all the girls. Informs that they have got a incredible group of players and it feels like a huge family.

5:21 PM IST UP skipper, Alyssa Healy informs that they were trying to give some rest to their main players. Adds that Shabnim Ismail's brace gave them a sniff but they could not make it count. States that the conditions were not easier to bat on. Adds that they will reflect on their mistakes and fix a few areas, as they will face Mumbai next.
5:20 PM IST Earlier in the game, Meg Lanning had no hesitation in bowling first and it turned out to be a good decision. UP got off to a solid start as their openers found a bit of rhythm but then the Delhi bowlers made a comeback into the game. the Australian pair of Alyssa Healy and Tahlia McGrath tried their best but once Healy got out, McGrath had to do it all alone. Radha Yadav and Jess Jonassen bowled really well and ended with 2 and 3 wickets respectively. McGrath did manage to turn on the heat toward the end and finished with 58* off 32 balls to take UP to 138 defendable runs. Coming to the chase, Delhi got their noses well in front via their openers and from then on it was about game management and they were able to get the win pretty comfotably.
5:16 PM IST UP made changes to their team and in the end, it didn't work out. Tahlia McGrath gave them a fighting chance with the bat but Shabnim Ismail went for 20 runs in the first over of the chase which proved to be a big blow for them. After that the bowlers were hammered a bit but Ismail came back in strongly to get rid of Jemimah Rodrigues and Meg Lanning in the same over. They then bowled decently but failed to pick up wickets in the middle phase. Sophie Ecclestone did pick up a wicket and bowled a lovely over to become the outright leading wicket-taker of the tournament but they just didn't have enough runs on the board. They will now look to bounce back in the Eliminator game after a couple of days.
5:15 PM IST Delhi needed 139 runs to win which wasn't a big target but wasn't a simple one to chase down either. But, as has been the case for most of their campaign, the pair of Shafali Verma and Meg Lanning simply put them ahead in the game inside the Powerplay. The pair added 56 runs before Verma got out and Lanning too followed suit and Delhi were 3 down in a hurry. It was then Alice Capsey who played a gem of a knock and added on 60 crucial runs with Marizanne Kapp to take Delhi near the finish line. Kapp stayed on as a couple of wickets fell and hit the winning runs.
5:14 PM IST DELHI STORM INTO THE FINAL! Mumbai bossed the points table right from the first game but Delhi managed to keep pace with them and have ended up toppling them off the top of the table. Another commanding win for them and they will now look ahead for the grand finale a few days later.
