WPL 2023, UPW vs RCB Highlights: Kanika Ahuja played a crucial 46-run knock off 30 balls, while Richa Ghosh chipped in with an unbeaten 31 off 32 balls as Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated UP Warriorz by five wickets in the Women's Premier League encounter. This is RCB's first win in the competition, which will also keep them alive in the tournament. The team had got off to a poor start in the 136-run chase as Smriti Mandhana's poor run continued to haunt her. She was cleaned up for 0 by Deepti Sharma as RCB could only add 66 runs in the first 10 overs and lost four wickets 4. RCB, however, produced a clinical display with the ball as they folded UP Warriorz for 135 after inviting them to bat first. Sophie Devine removed both UP Warriorz openers – Devika Vaidya and Alyssa Healy – in the first over. Megan Schutt then removed Tahila McGrath in the next over to push UP on the backfoot. The wickets kept coming as Elysse Perry swung the contest entirely into RCB's favour by removing set Grace Harris and Deepti Sharma in the 16th over.
