DC Start Batting

DC - 12/0 (1)

Shafali Verma Falls!

The ball went straight to square leg and the failed opportunity didn't cost the Giants much - full and at the pads, Shafali cleared her front leg before flicking to Wolvaardt at square leg. Came at a good height, and the South African was never going to lose it.

DC - 21/1 (3)

Meghna Strikes Again!

Another dismissal for Meghna, who now has two. Capsey leant into the drive, failed to stay on top of the bounce, and sliced a routine catch to backward point. Tanuja takes it reverse-cupped, and the dangerous Capsey is gone.

DC - 58/2 (7)

Meg Lanning Departs After 50

DC captain Meg Lanning smashed back-to-back boundaries to complete her half-century. Lanning tried to hit another but holed out to Hemalatha. Meghna Singh got her third wicket.

DC - 111/3 (13)

Kashyap Gets Rodrigues!

An ugly slog and Rodrigues has holed out to short third man - pre-empted her charge, Mannat saw it coming, slowed down the pace and pushed it wider of off, having been undone in the flight, Rodrigues went through with the wild swipe, gets a thick outside edge, the ball loops and is swallowed by Pathan, running in from short third man.

DC - 117/4 (14)

Gardner Gets Reddy

A big slog and Meghna takes it on the second try - the Capitals are losing wickets in the pursuit of quick runs - Arundhati Reddy came down the track, didn't get to the ball, and then had to reach out on the slog, mistiming it high and down to long-on - Meghna had the ball in her grasp, it popped out, but she was quick enough to catch it on the rebound.

DC - 146/7 (18)

Meghna Completes 4-fer

Meghna Singh came to bowl the final over for Delhi's innings and leaked 11 runs before dismissing Radha Yadav on the final delivery. Shikha Pandey smashed two boundaries in the over to take the score to 163 runs. Now, Gujarat Giants need 164 runs to win the match.

DC - 163/8 (20)

Innings Break!

Brief Score: DC - 163/8 (20)

Meg Lanning - 55 (41), Alice Capsey - 27 (17) | Meghna Singh: (4-0-37-4)

GGT Start Chase!

Titas Sadhu opened the bowling attack for Delhi Capitals against Beth Mooney and Laura Wolvaardt. Mooney played all six balls of the first over and scored no run. Maiden over to start in WPL for Sadhu.

GGT - 0/0 (1)

Pandey Gets Wolvaardt

Shikha Pandey came to bowl the second over after Titas Sadhu's maiden over. She bowled in good areas and kept Wolvaardt away from the ball. She took the fouth delivery in line and Wolvaardt missed it and took that on timber. First wicket for Gujarat.

GGT - 1/1 (2)

Jonassen Gets 2 Wickets In A Over

Jess Jonassen came to bowl the fifth over and dismissed Beth Mooney on the second delivery. She also got rid of Phoebe Litchfield on the fifth delivery. She conceded seven runs and got two wickets.

GGT - 35/3 (5)

Radha Yadav Gets Veda Krishnamurthy

Straight to the reverse point. Veda's cut is too short and broad on the exterior. Another falls, bringing with it the timeout.

GGT - 53/4 (8)

Radha Yadav Gets Bryce

The umpire's decision goes in favour of the bowling team. It's a flung-up delivery on leg-stump; Bryce sweeps and misses, it's not sliding down, and it's simply clipping leg-stump. The first decision is out, and Radha Yadav has her second. The review is not lost for Gujarat.

GGT - 74/5 (11)

Jonassen Gets Gardner

Gardner comes down the track to play a massive shot but misses, leaving Bhatia with the gloves behind and doing the rest. Gujarat has suffered a massive hit.

GGT - 108/6 (15)

Reddy Gets Pathan!

Tarannum Pathan flicks and misses a seam-up yorker on the toe; she is down as the ball strikes the toe, and the umpire raises his finger in a flash. No idea of a review at all. Good death bowling.

GGT - 124/8 (18)

DC Win By 25 Runs!

Jess Jonassen and Shikha Pandey bowled the last two overs and conceded seven runs in each over to hand Gujarat Giants another loss, It's their fourth loss on the trot. DC won the game by 25 runs.

GGT - 138/8 (20)

Beth Mooney | GGT Captain

Disappointing; we would have liked to be on the board; it was close in the end, but we needed a strong partnership. Fair enough (on the fielding); the bowling has been disciplined; to be honest, we let them down by not meeting standards; we saw how effectively they fielded. You want to get off to a strong start, but they bowled quite effectively, and if they hadn't been three down in the batting powerplay, things could have turned out differently. The hitters, including myself, haven't performed well enough. It's all about putting runs on the board moving forward.

Meg Lanning | DC Captain

We felt short. We felt 20 short, especially given the start we got. We believed it was a challenge to take early wickets, and we succeeded. To be honest, I was a little irritated with my first 30 runs; I wanted to strike more. Something to work on for upcoming games. Would have wanted to continue. It was fantastic; Titas bowled superbly in her debut game, and Shikha has been bowling consistently well. When it swings, it is hazardous and may force excellent players out. You must maintain winning throughout the event, and the top three will be closely contested.

Jess Jonassen | POTM

Fortunately, I've faced those three [Mooney, Litchfield, and Gardner] many times in the Australian nets. They are high-quality players who do not provide many opportunities. The bowling group really came together; Radha bowled well, as did the others, and they were startled to be here, but pleased with the victory. Meg knows me well; I enjoy having the ball in my hands, and it hasn't been going well for the past 12-18 months, but I believe it's improving. You get significant value for your shots here, whether in the air or on the ground. You need to find the right tempo; tonight the wicket had a gloss, and the faster you bowl, the more it slid.

That's all from our side!

Gujarat Giants remained winless so far in this season of WPL 2024 after being defeated by 25 runs in the match against Delhi Capitals. We will also be taking your leave. See you tomorrow. Goodnight, Take Care!
