DC Women won a nail bitter against RCB Women. DC Women won the match by 6 wickets with 2 balls left in the match. DC Women skipper Meg Lanning was dismissed cheaply along with the rising batter Shafali Verma. We have seen in WPL 2023, that Meg Lanning has dominated the terms by playing an anchor role & then going berserk.
Jess Jonassen against all odds played a match-winning cameo of 29 runs in 15 balls in which she struck 4 fours & 1 six. At one stage it looked like RCB Women would win their maiden match in WPL 2023 where DC Women required 9 to win in the last over as the pitch was a bit on the slower side.

RCB Women would be crestfallen with this performance as once again they failed to win the crunch moments of the match. RCB Women while batting were in a spot of bother as they were reduced to 63-3 in 12.4 overs where once again their skipper Smriti Mandhana failed to make an impact with the bat in hand.
DC Women skipper Meg Lanning would be pretty happy with the middle order’s performance as in all the last couple of matches, Shafali Verma & Meg Lanning had done the bulk of the scoring. DC Women would be aiming for a top finish as their next match is against Gujarat Giants (GG) on 16th March 2023.

It was close in the end – Meg Lanning
During the post-match presentation, Meg Lanning was asked about the team’s performance and the final-over finish.
“It was close in the end there, JJ and Kappy did an excellent job to keep their composure. We got ahead and RCB bowled well to come back, nice to get over the line. It would have been nice to finish it earlier but the wicket got slower. Having two experienced batters at the end helped.” said Meg Lanning.
A lot to learn from this game- Meg Lanning
“We just executed really well, if you hit a good length, that’s the most effective way to bowl. A lot to learn from this game. To get a win under pressure will do wonders for our team. I am trying to stay calm – that’s T20 cricket for you, you are under the pump all the time. Shikha Pandey has been under the radar, she is bowling really well and having Kapp and Jess Jonassen on the field helps as well.” she added.
