    Two wickets in her first WPL over for Tara Norris as Disha Kasat hits one straight to backward square leg. RCB are losing their way now in this contest.

    Tara Norris - the associate player from USA, gets Ellyse Perry. What a wicket to start your WPL career. The Australian comes down the track looking to free her arms over covers but the ball keeps low, takes the inside edge of the bat and rattles the stumps. DC strengthen their hold on this contest.

    Strategic Time out called

    End of eight overs and the umpires call for a strategic timeout. RCB were off to a good start, but they are firmly under pressure having lost both Sophie Devine and Smriti Mandhana. They have Perry (15*), Kasat (2*) in the middle and have Knight and Richa Ghosh to follow.

    RCB: 66/2 (8)

    Not the best of deliveries from Alice Capsey, but she has stuck gold for Delhi Capitals. Smriti Mandhana has to walk back for 35 as she tries to paddle, but only manages to gift the simplest of catches to Shikha Pandey at short fine-leg. 

    RCB: 56/2 (6.3)

  • 5 March 2023 12:13 PM GMT


    They have lost the experienced Sophie Devine, but RCB have managed to score 54 in the powerplay. They have Mandhana and Perry in the middle now.

    RCB: 54/1 (6)

    Alice Capsey into the attack with her right-arm medium. Sophie Devine comes down the track and smashes one towards mid-off, where Shafali Verma moves to her right and plucks an excellent low catch.

    Devine asks the umpire if it was a clean catch and they go upstairs to check. The third umpire is happy with catch and signals OUT. Devine walks back for 14 off 11.

    RCB: 41/1 (4.2)
