The match, held at a packed stadium, witnessed a stellar display of spin bowling from RCB that restricted Delhi Capitals to a modest total of 113 runs.

Despite Meg Lanning’s efforts, Delhi Capitals suffered a dramatic collapse, failing to capitalize on the promising start.

Chasing a modest target, RCB approached the innings with calculated aggression.

Despite a brief hiccup after Mandhana’s dismissal, Ellyse Perry anchored the chase with a composed unbeaten knock of 35 runs.

Delhi Capitals attempted to apply pressure in the dying stages of the match, but Richa Ghosh’s boundary off the final over sealed the victory for RCB. The Bangalore-based franchise ended their trophy drought in style, clinching the title with an emphatic 8-wicket win.
